Lust, lies and the law collide in… Murder on the Down Low! Savvy L.A. attorney Vernetta Henderson takes center in a fast-paced legal thriller that erupts into a scandalous tale of lust, lies, and vengeance. Some of L.A.'s most prominent citizens are being gunned down, leaving police completely baffled. The victims are all quintessential family men. Well-educated. Attractive. Successful. But the appearances can be deceiving.
At the same time, Vernetta's outrageous sidekick, Special, leads the charge for revenge against a young lawyer whose deceit caused his fiance's death. For Special, hauling the man into court and suing him for wrongful death just isn't good enough. While she exacts her own brand of justice, a shocking revelation connects the contentious lawsuit and the puzzling murders.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
PSY writing style is a great combination of important issues mixed with fun. RC Bray is an outstanding narrator. Murder on the Down Low concerns HIV in the black community. Down-Low is an African-American slang term for mostly heterosexual men who also have sexual relationships with other men.
I Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
I love all of Pamela's books I found this listen very entertaining and guessing who done it all way to the end I hope there are more books coming soon.
Murder on the Down Low is an eye opener for those of us (like me), whose live exists in the daylight while the lives of other people exist in deceit and deception on the other side of midnight.
This story is about heterosexual men who also have sex with other men on the "Down-Low," hence they are lying about who they really are. In other words, they are leading double lives. The hot issue in this story is how these men are telling lies and committing fraud on women while HIV is running rampant in the black community. The death of a woman infected by her HIV positive fiancé is the cornerstone of this story.
Author Pamela S. Young does a great job teaching and educating us while entertaining us with a great story. This story teaches the importance of HIV awareness in an entertaining story. It had me guessing about "who done it" until the reveal. I enjoyed the story from the beginning until the very last word. Good entertainment.
RC Bray is an outstanding narrator.
My mom taught me to read when i was 3 and i've been reading ever since. I LOVE to read and now 'listen' to books.
Every single book of hers that I have read so far has been captivating enthralling enchanting at times and well worth the read! This one does not disappoint although there are a couple of characters who are true to form like Haley and Jaysee's 'partner' that I would like to see get their come-uppance but overall I really enjoy these books. That Special, she is truly 'special', ain't she?!
I love Pamela's writing style and her stories. I felt like I knew these characters from the very first book. Her work is complemented by the great reading/voices of RC Bray (wow!!!!). The Vernetta stories are wonderful and quite entertaining. And if you haven't listened to "Anybody's Daughter", it's a must listen. I hope you enjoy.
Juicy gossip story
I had no idea how it was going to end.
I liked how he changed his voice to suit the character. You could actually visualize them.
Yes, if I could have
