In the final installment of the Bitch Series, Precious Cummings only has one agenda and that is to destroy her most conniving enemy yet, Maya. Precious has no doubt that she can get the job done, the only problem is locating her nemesis who has disappeared with her husband, Supreme and daughter, Aaliyah.

Pulling up stakes, Supreme, Maya, and baby Aaliyah have left with no forwarding address, and upon Precious’ conquering yet another near death experience, she arrives home to find it void of those that she loves more than life itself.

Precious’ lifesaving love, Nico teams up with her in her quest to find her family and wreak havoc on Maya.
