Publisher's Summary

The author of 30 critically acclaimed works, Walter Mosley has had his novels translated into 23 languages.

The Tempest Tales, an Essence Book Club Recommended Read, features Tempest Landry, a black man shot down by an over-eager cop. But that's not the end of the line for Tempest. Unwilling to accept St. Peter's judgment that he spend eternity in Hell, Tempest is sent back to Harlem - guardian angel in tow - to make things right.

Worth every second

Great listen. Could not tear away from the story and the narration. Truly a philosophical masterpiece in words and images.
