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've listened to the novel three times. I love the main character, The Man in 3B, Daryl, and I like Connie. There were characters I hated and some I felt sorry for just like in life. I wanted to find out what actually happened. I found the mystery intriguing. This is my first Carl Weber novel and honestly his dialogue is a bit harsh for me but it seems so real for the world he writes about.
I've just downloaded another of his novels because I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
The revenge aspect. I love a story where the person who does the dirty deed gets what's coming to them.
Avery calling Cain
No, I prefer to spread my listening over a few days no matter how much I like the book
Don't care for so many narrators
Started my own bookclub in 2007 and have been expanding my book list ever since.
I re-read this book to brush up the story line and get ready for the upcoming movie. Again I loved it! Can't wait for it to come to life on screen. 👍😌
this storyline was incredible as all of his books I own as apart of my collection. Such a great author I love his work this will definitely keep you on the edge of your chair from start to finish.
