Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B.
Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know. Unfortunately, in Darryl's world, what you know can hurt you. And when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.
Darryl has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can't stop talking about him. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Darryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be.
Darryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants' lives. Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Darryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Darryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Darryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he's ever known. Krystal, Darryl's first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet having Darryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And, last but not least, Avery, Connie's husband, doesn't care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way - that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.
Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.

I want more story about Connie and Daryl, hopefully there is a part two!!!!
Yes! Carl Weber tried something new with this urban suspense novel. The Man in 3B will have you hooked, laughing, guessing and licking your lips all at the same time.
The narrators were wonderful and kept me listening.
So shortly after reading this book and telling a friend about this book I then found out this book is going to be a movie.
The book is great and has a great twist. I thought it would be a typical black novel set in New York...but ohhhh I was wrong. You won't be disappointed with this book!!
A newlywed who loves to read. I'm trying out different genres and seeing what I like :)
I loved the fact that I had NO IDEA who was to blame!! Even when I thought I knew, It completely changed on me!!
My favorite character was Connie. She had to deal with a lot of mess from her husband and in the end she got the guy she deserved!
Oh yes!!! I was crying and laughing and oohing and ahhing and cheering!! This book was great!
Great book and the narrators were great!!
This was a great listen! I just recently started listening to Carl Weber books and he has yet to disappoint me. I loved how Darryl was able to love one of the characters through her insecurities. He supported her when no one else would. I would have loved more character development for Darryl. Honestly even though he was the main character we still didn't learn much about him. Why was he wearing that darn ankle bracelet? Anyway this book is still excellent. Buy it now!
I am an urban fiction addict!! Wahida Clark books are my fave! I love the Thug Series. I am an avid reader and Audible makes it even better!
I love Carl Webber. This book was okay. A bit predictable at times, but its still work a listen. I This was my first audible book, so I really love each character having their own voice when its their chapter. The performance made the book better. Had I actually read this on my own, Im sure I wouldnt have liked it as much.
Well written with plenty of drama! Great plot that had me laughing out loud and talking to the characters: "yeah, well, you should know better!" I really liked the end of this story.... I didn't see it coming, but I got my wish for a happy ending. Be ready to suspend your belief when it comes to police procedure, but it works in order to push the story along the path to the ending that is a real surprise. The narrators are wonderful and performs the story well, even tho I didn't particularly like the "valley girl" voice for Crystal but after getting into the story, I begin to feel that the voice was perfect for the character's personality and even started to like the voice. Highly recommend for the entertainment value...
