Publisher's Summary

The untimely passing of the beloved New York Times best-selling author E. Lynn Harris has left fans pining for more. With this collaboration, fans are given the book they've been clamoring to read - and the book that Harris and Essence best-selling author R. M. Johnson long wanted to write.

Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster-care system. Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years.

Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that, in order to inherit the wealth of his father's estate and save the struggling family business, he must marry a woman before he turns 35. The task becomes more convoluted when Cobi's sister proposes to pay Austen Greer, a once-successful and wealthy businesswoman who lost everything in the recession, to be Cobi's wife.

Eric discovers Cobi is gay and promises to keep it a secret. Instead, he entrusts the information to his former prison cellmate, Blac, who endears himself to Cobi in hopes of securing a $150,000 loan from him to pay back a debt racked up by cocaine sales. As the clock runs down both on Blac's efforts to pay his deadly creditor and on Cobi's attempts to save the family company, rash moves are executed, family and friendship bonds are tested, and life-altering sacrifices are made.

    "E Lynn Harris would be disappointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one.


    Has No One in the World turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He made the characters sound low budget.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of E Lynn Harris's books and this being his last book was not good. It lacked so much and was very predictable. The ending left me unsatisfied. I do not recommend you soil your memory of this author with this book.

    "Awesome, can't wait for part 2"

    At first I was not thrilled about the narrators voice. But then I heard the change in characters and I was in. This book was sooo juicy, funny, sad, all in one. I would surely recommend adding it to your library.

    "Narrator made my head hurt!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Maybe another reader.The reader's attempt at using different voices for different characters was horrible!


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. Lynn Harris and R. M. Johnson ? Why or why not?

    NO!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from No One in the World?

    Didn't even finish the book before writing the review.
