REVIEW for Murder on the Down Low








BOOKSHIPPER welcomes author PAMELA SAMUELS YOUNG and PUMP UP YOUR BOOK PROMOTION



TITLE: Murder on the Down Low

AUTHOR: Pamela Samuels Young

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 3.5 Stars

Murder on the Down Low starts off with a bang. The storyline is interesting and different. For one thing, I never really knew that the Down Low sort of really existed! I always thought it was more of an expression!

Murder on the Down Low is a thriller in the real sense of the word. I could not figure out who was the murderer until the very end (which is always wonderful). I hate it when I have the guilty person figured out before the second chapter! Also, the author does a very good job of sending in enough mixed messages and false leads to keep this book quite engrossing. The murder of black wealthy men leads us into a nightmare situation that includes AIDS, lawsuits and deception.

The main character Vernetta (who makes a return appearance) is, as always, gritty and likeable and her relationship with Special is well - dare I say it? Special.

This thriller has more detours and twists than a country road and I really enjoyed it.

Good luck trying to figure out who the murderer is.....
