Overview

E. Lynn Harris and RM Johnson— two powerful voices of a generation—unite with an insightful and emotional project that tackles themes of family, loyalty and identity.

The untimely passing of the beloved New York Times bestselling author E. Lynn Harris has left fans pining for more. With this collaboration, fans are given the book they’ve been clamoring to read—and the book that Harris and Essence bestselling author RM Johnson long wanted to write.

Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster care system. Following their parents’ death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years.

Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that in order to inherit the wealth of his father’s estate and save the struggling family business, he must marry a woman before he turns thirty-five. The task becomes more convoluted when Cobi’s sister proposes to pay Austen Greer, a once-successful and wealthy businesswoman who lost everything in the recession, to be Cobi’s wife.

Eric discovers Cobi is gay and promises to keep it a secret. Instead, he entrusts the information to his former prison cellmate, Blac, who endears himself to Cobi in hopes of securing a $150,000 loan from him to pay back a debt racked up by cocaine sales. As the clock runs down both on Blac’s efforts to pay his deadly creditor and on Cobi’s attempts to save the family company, rash moves are executed, family and friendship bonds are tested, and life-altering sacrifices are made.

    So Sad Its Over

    I have been a fan of E Lynn Harris for many years and have read almost all of his book. This book was found on his computer after his death 2 years ago. Another great book. This is not part of the "Basil" series, it is a stand alone book. But his style is here. A great book. I will miss his books. May he rest in peace.

    This book is simply a treasure. I had the honor of meeting E. Lynn Harris at a book signing, and he was gracious and patient with his fans after a very long day. This new book was a surprise and delivered the same amazing subjects as his former books. Be prepared for surprises and adventure.

    Awesome

    When I started reading this, I didnt think it wouod be that good. I was wrong! I wasn't crazy about the ending-perhaps a sequel is in the works. E. Lynn Harris will truly be missed. I do look forward to reading other books by RM now.

    First of all I would like to start off by saying: E Lynn was a great writer and may he rest in peace. When i saw this book online, I knew i had to have it. This is a very good read, I really loved this book. i found myself not wanting to put it down, because I needed to see what was going to happen next. E Lynn was a fabulous author and his novels will be greatly missed.

    Another great book!!

    I enjoyed reading this and it was page-turner; couldn't put it down. The ending was kind of shaky....maybe this one will be continued in a new book (even though E. Lynn is no longer with us, I'm sure he left lots of material for a few more books). Rest in peace, Mr Harris. Your work will live on and continue to satisfy the palate of readers around the world.

    Great read. There were a lot of questions to be answered at the end, but unfortunately, they will never be answered. However, it is a great book with a great story line.

    Great Read.

    E. Lynn Harris is/was such a great writer. His books always keep you excited and ready to read on. I was trying to guess what was going to happen next and the end was right on (predicted it but still good ending)...loved it.
