Ice-T & His Wife Land Book Deals for Debut Novels

Law & Order star and hip-hop legend Ice-T will publish Kings of Vice (written with Mal Radcliff) with Tom Doherty Associates’ Forge Books imprint in September.

This fall, the imprint will also publish Angel by Nicole ‘Coco‘ Marrow–an actress and Ice-T’s wife. Ice-T (pictured, via) has more than 83,100  followers on Twitter and is also working on a memoir.

Here’s more about Ice-T’s upcoming book: “Marcus ‘Crush’ Casey is an ex-gang leader in a New York City on the edge of social and economic collapse. He walks out of Attica Penitentiary after serving 20 years behind bars with the realization that he must be part of the solution – but first he must take back his gang from the backstabbing lieutenant who handed him over to the Feds.”

Here’s a description of Coco’s book (co-written by Laura Hayden): “A beautiful woman awakens on a plane to discover it’s about to crash into the Hudson River.  By process of elimination, the airline determines that her name is Angela Sands.  She can’t remember a thing about her life before the plane crash. Who is she?  What is she?  And why does she believe that she was murdered before she woke up on that plane in a stranger’s body?”
