Publisher's Summary

Available for the first time as an audiobook, New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey’s thrilling short story Harlem.

“People called me Harlem. I dubbed myself after that dangerous neighborhood that I’d never seen. I read life is rough in Harlem, and a Black man isn’t expected to live to see 25. I was 23. The clock was ticking.”

When Harlem gets off on a murder charge due to insanity, the asylum he’s sent to feels worse than death, with one exception: the beautiful Nurse Daphane. As their relationship grows, so do the stakes: She has the ability to help him escape, and he has the ability to set her free from her abusive relationship. Yet Harlem has one big secret: He was perfectly sane when he committed his crime. But in the end, Daphane’s own secret may be the deadliest of all....

Short But Good!!!

Harlem was short but, very good. It ended how I pretty much thought it would. I knew Daphne was playing him but, I didn't expect her to be the murder victim's wife and I definitely wasn't expecting Phyllis to be her partner in crime. That was an unexpected plot twist. I get that Harlem was a bad guy but, I was honestly hoping he found a way to murder those backstabbin' heffas. I was rootin' for you Harlem!

Disappointed

The author was right in the intro -- this story was too long to be short, and too short to be long. Either way, it definitely wasn't worth a whole credit. Disappointed.

Nothing like Eric Jerome Dickey.

I couldn't finish and that's bad because this was extremely short. I'm so disappointed.
