    With Samad’s target on her back, Liberty must survive the harsh streets alone. But when a chance encounter pushes her into the arms of a new friend, Po, the two take on the California kingpin - and step full force into the game. As bullets and sparks fly, the unlikely pair embarks on a serendipitous journey back to where it all started: Sierra Leone. With a new overseas connection, Po sees an opportunity that is too good to pass up. When his pursuit of the American dream conflicts with Liberty’s past, will they be able to survive, or will the drug empire that they’ve built together come crashing down?

    The feud between YaYa and Leah has ruined the lives of everyone around them. In The Prada Plan 4, the animosity is alive, and the resentments run deeper than ever. Indie has watched YaYa's past destroy the woman he once knew, and his patience has run thin. After being left at the altar, he is heartbroken and confused. His quests to save YaYa from herself have failed, and he finally decides it's time to let the love of his life go. Her thirst for blood is unquenchable, and like a black hole she sucks the life out of everything around her.

    It's been three years since Aaron Mackie succeeded in helping his friend and mentor Bishop T.K. Wilson dig his ministry out of financial ruin. Aaron is also responsible for re-energizing the almost defunct choir into something special. His success has drawn national attention, and he's on the verge of signing a huge recording contract. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who caught his eye and inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods-like tendencies.

    New York Times best-selling authors Ashley and JaQuavis have returned with the much-anticipated final installment in the epic Murderville series. Taking up where the previous book left off, we're thrown back into the international street chronicle. Lives and money are on the line, and tough choices will have to be made between love and loyalty. In the final installment of this breath-taking trilogy, the characters will have to learn that, in this game of power, sometimes you have to give up the glory to survive.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Murderville 3 the most enjoyable?

    The most enjoyable experience of listening to Marseille 3 is the growth and dignity that Liberty displayed throughout the book.


    What other book might you compare Murderville 3 to and why?

    I think Kwan's book "Animal" and De'Nesha Diamond's books can be compared to Murderville 3 because all of these books have murder, s tdeep, rong-willed and weak subjects, mayhem, drugs as part of their storylines.


    What three words best describe Cary Hite’s voice?

    Deep, focused, substantive.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, my extreme reaction was that of sadness about the sex & drug trafficking, and using children, ruiniing their lives and chances for the most part.


    Any additional comments?

    Liberty maintains her dignity no matter what she goes thru.

    Essence best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray thrills audiences with her trademark twists and unforgettable voice. Scandalous gives listeners an early look at one of Murray’s most notorious characters. Exotic dancer Jasmine Cox is engaged and ready to settle down. But then a bachelorette-party roll in the hay ignites a torrid affair that threatens to drown out the sound of wedding bells.

    Her voice, as always, has the right inflection and she was great at distinguishing the characters.

    The audio edition of What Love Tastes Like is better than the print version because of the narrator's ability to bring realism to all of the characters and move the book at a nice pace.
