Overview

Chemah Rivers is back in an all-new erotic roller coaster of a story — the final book in a captivating trilogy filled with mystery and heart-stopping drama.

There are stories within the Bible that have hidden, erotic depths that have never been revealed. Now, Playing in the Dark follows a unique and creative storyline that begins with a Biblical myth and develops into the revelation of a modern-day murder mystery, starring Chemah Rivers.

When a serial killer is suspected for a string of deaths, the murders are assigned to investigator Chemah Rivers, who quickly catches the person everyone assumes to be the culprit. At the same time, Chemah is dealing with his own home and love-life drama. His love interest, a blind comedienne, might very well get her sight back. Chemah's ex-wife is fighting for custody of their daughter, and his son is getting a little too familiar with the street life, and all the traps that scene holds.

When the real killer starts to stalk Chemah, and the continued deaths start to be tainted by sexual overtones in the very area they live, Chemah is caught up from all sides as he struggles to be the hero, not only for the victims, but for his family and loved ones as well. With the warm flavor of a romance, mixed with the intense action of an adventurous mystery, Playing in the Dark will entice and capture the mind of every reader.

    A fascinating tale involving spirits.

    This is the third book In the trilogy. Normally this is not a book I would choose based on the context but I had to continue to read about Chemah who's back as a NYPD detective. This time he is unknowingly involved in trying to solve murders by a serial killer who followed him back from Israel to the mean streets of Harlem. The writer has a way of keeping you hostage from the first page all the way through. I can clearly see this book being played out on the big screen.

    fascinating suspense thriller

    His brothers all failed and had to leave Sodom as part of their bet. Bereft believes he learned from their mistakes and now knows how to tempt Lot so he falls from grace in spite of this man¿s goodness. He sexually toys with Lot¿s two daughters, believing they will provide insight into winning his wager. However, before he can complete his quest, the Angels of God attack the city leaving him buried in its ruins. --- Thousands of years later, NYPD Detective Chemah Rivers accompanies his live in lover Michelle Thomas to Israel where she will receive controversial treatment not allowed in the States that might enable her to regain her vision. The blind stand up comedienne has hopes and fears while Chemah worries about her, his daughter Tatsuya from his ex-wife and his son Hero from a third woman. Local police inspector Yankow asks Chemah to look at five corpses arranged like an upside down cross with the rest of the evidence making less sense as a clothes model is killed with her bare hands and a deadly military martial arts instructor is a victim as well. He offers his help before returning to New York with Michelle, who needs additional treatments. Chemah is unaware that Bereft has returned and stalks him as the demon sees a Lot like Goodness in the cop. As people die on the plane and in the city, someone looking like his former wife kidnaps his daughter. --- The third Chemah Rivers suspense thriller (see HARLEM¿S DRAGON and STREET SWEEPER neither read by me) is a fascinating tale that deftly takes a biblical serial killing demon and places it inside a modern day New York police procedural. Chemah is fabulous as he struggles to be there for Michelle whose fears over seeing and not seeing begin to overwhelm their relationship until the bigger crisis involving his daughter occurs. However, Bereft owns the tale as he hops bodies with a touch and leaves his calling card of arranged broken bones behind in his path of mayhem and destruction. --- Harriet Klausner
