    Kwaku Sai is dead. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, he succumbs suddenly at dawn outside the home he shares in Ghana with his second wife. The news of Kwaku's death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Ghana Must Go is their story. Electric, exhilarating, beautifully crafted, Ghana Must Go follows the Sais' journey, moving with great elegance through time and place to share the truths hidden and lies told; the crimes committed in the name of love.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is an entertaining book that tells the true human story of a family dynamic. The prose is lyrical and the way the author interweaves the tales of each family member is exceptional. The listener is given an intimate view of the inner thoughts of the characters. The story is one I will remember for a long time. The ending does not disappoint.

    Just weeks after tracking down a killer known as the Angel of Death, Detective Mike Coletti stands at Mary Smithson’s grave, mourning the woman whose betrayal nearly cost him his life. He’s joined there by Mary’s beautiful half sister, Lenore. Moments later, a gunshot splits the air, placing Coletti on a collision course with the Gravedigger, a killer hellbent on deciphering the secret of life and death. As bodies drop and tensions mount, clues are plucked from the victims, and one thing is abundantly clear—Lenore is the killer’s ultimate target.

    Story

    This book starts off with a "bang" and picks up momentum. By the time it's over you stop and ask yourself, "did all that really happen in one day?" Indeed. The good thing about this book is that there are interesting characters and for a while, you're invested in their well being. Unfortunately, the ending is not fulfilling. The book jumps the shark, and a great set-up ends disappointingly.

    Story

    The story began in an interesting way, but I quickly realized that without knowing it, I had selected a Christian Fiction book. I was afraid that it would be trite, shallow and heavy handed with an overly religious tone, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was not that way at all. The characters were nicely varied and the plot was as interesting as any other in the amateur sleuthing genre. I tired of the main character's complaints, at times, but overall, I would recommend this book to others as a good, entertaining suspenseful mystery.

    QPBC New Voices Award-winner Jervey Tervalon authors scintillating works of African-American fiction. Spellbinding, luminous, and richly atmospheric, Dead Above Ground tells the story of the wealthy Du Champs family of New Orleans. Helen, the matriarch, rules over her daughters Adele and Lita with an iron will. But Adele has fallen in love with smooth operator Lucien, who, unbeknownst to her, means to settle a decades-old score with her mother.

    Story

    This book grabbed my attention from the first few minutes of listening. I was hooked and enjoyed hearing the story unfold. The characters were strongly written and I was interested in their inter-relationships and back-stories. The author skillfully wove all of this information about the characters in without affecting the pacing of the plot in a negative away.There were many suspenseful moments throughout the book that kept me guessing. The end was satisfying and made me want to read the sequel without making me feel cheated by a cliff-hanger. Very well done.
