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.

At first it was moving kind of slow to me, but as I kept listening I became more intrigued. Good story overall. This was my second book by the author and I am now a fan!
It you don't like...change it!
Yes...I was like she did it, no him, no her....I had no clue until the mystery was reveled.
I didn't have just one but I enjoyed the mixture of characters. I felt like I knew them all after awhile.
I love the fact that there were did narrators in this book. It really brought it to life for me.
There is nothing that Carl Weber does that I don't enjoy. His stories are always juicy and full of drama....I love it!!
Yes, nice story, interesting charachters and nice twist.
The man in 3B of course and I guess Connie.
Connie and Nancy
The author did a good job in developing the characters and the narrarators did a great job in briging them to life.
Connie was my favorite character because she was the most genuine.
Hearing the voices of the characters, for me, brings a depth. I could get a better image of them by the sound of their voice.
You never know what really goes on... Behind Closed Doors.
When I first started listening to this book I thought it was going to be cartoonish and predictable with shallow characters who I would hate. But when I kept listening and the main characters were brought to life, I began to thoroughly enjoy it and found it hard to cut it off. Although I did predict what happened, I was not mad because I enjoyed listening to how everything unfolded.
I'm glad I've gotten into Carl Weber. He is imaginative and I always enjoy his twists. He is one of my favorites and I look forward to catching up on books I have not read by him as well as his future projects.
The characters were all the way live. Darryl was sexy and smooth. Everyone wanted some of him. The thrills and mystery kept me listening longer than planned.
When Avery told Connie, I want a divorce. Bennie trying to push up on Darryl. Slutty Crystal getting caught by Slim in front of Darryl door. Priceless
Everything, their voices were suited to the age and character as I would picture them to be.
This must have a sequel. I think Connie killed Avery's first wife. I think there should be a sighting of Darryl. And Slim should a have a larger part in some criminal way. And I want more of Ben!
I love me some audio books! My taste ranges from Self Help, Motivational, Success, Fiction, Autobiography, African American, NWO, Business, Religious and more. I will be commenting from time to time and I hope my reviews are helpful!
These was never a dull moment. Action packed. Something always backfired and the ending was totally worth it!
Carl Weber did it again! He is the KING of spinster, that man sure knows how to spin a story. This is a murder mystery, just when you might think you know who the killer is, NOPE! It takes another turn, the book is filled with good humor and real life issues. The ladies who sit on the stoop of the building reminds you of 227. Without giving anything away here are the characters: Nancy who is in a marriage that is over, but stays for the sake of her children is having affair with Ben Sr. the fireman, who is not only doing Nancy but a couple of the other ladies iin the building. Connie: who is married to Avery who is down and out because he lost his six figure job and is now working in a furniture story is turned off by Connie's weight gain, she tries to keep her marriage together, but Avery is determine to leave, Avery: runs into a guy named Kane who teaches him how to be happy, the motto is live like you are dying and that is exactly what he does. Then you have Crystal who is coke head and has a history with the man in 3B which the story revolves around Darryl Graham. Ben Jr. who develops a friendshiip with Darryl. His father becomes a little jealous. My only complaint is, you never really get to know Darryl I felt by the end of the story we should have known something of his background. The author keeps his dealing and his history a mystery. I am hoping he does another book telling us the story of Darryl Graham, but with that said, you will have a blast reading this book!
I enjoyed this one. In fact, I finished it in one day!!!! Love, sex, who-done-it mystery and good narration... Well worth your credit.
I loved this book, from the first 30 minutes i was hooked. It is a feel good book.. Im so tired of reading books about gangs, drugs and fashion. This was a great distraction from that.
The ending. I hoped he didn't die in the fire and I was glad he didn't!
All the characters. The ensemble of different diverse personality that made up one apartment was very realistic.
The depth of their voices and their ability to bring all the characters alive. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was not able to stop listening to the book until it was over. I had to know what was going to happening. I was compelled from the very beginning.
Very good production once again!
