Omar Tyree, best known for his gritty urban novels, depicting the sexy, drama-filled lives of tough-minded African-American women from Flyy Girl, For The Love of Money, Leslie and Diary of a Groupie - all New York Times bestsellers - returns to his reader base with Insanity, a powerful, modern day housewife drama, uncovering the disastrous dark side of a woman with cold-hearted and seductive ambition. Queen Tillis-Thompson, a sex-loving wife, a calculating mother, and a social climbing professional from the tough inner city streets of West Baltimore will stop at nothing in her rise to wealthy and security, even if it means sharing a few beds, stepping on toes, and smashing all egos. She boldly states, “Don’t ever underestimate me . . . If I need to be that bitch, I will be that bitch. If I need to be that hoe, I will be that hoe. And if I need to be that studious nerd, virgin or whatever, then I will be that too.” Named and raised by a young, single and obsessive mother who did all she could to make certain her only child could escape the many failures of the Baltimore streets, Queen uses her smarts, her body and her iron will, including an elite education to survive and strive, while carefully scheming on the most profitable. In her unapologetic zeal, she is easily willing to use and abuse family, friends, and lovers without sympathy. Queen wants what she wants by any means necessary; a husband, money, career advances, playthings, and a luxurious home, church affiliation, and prestigious schools, friends and future mates for her three children. As you can imagine, Queen eventually forces everyone, including close family members, to choose their love or hate loyalties. Either they admire her get-it-girl motivation, or they beg for her destruction and downfall. After a mysterious and untimely death of her treasured husband, they get their wish, when the impoverishment of her family’s estate and the recession of the American economy threatens to ruin everything that Queen has worked so hard to build, forcing her to plead for help from friends and foes who may be thinking of her best interest. Queen and her children find themselves struggling to overcome one calamity after another, the driven widow and mother spirals into a bloody, hotel-room murder that sends her twisted mind plummeting over the edge of sanity, while she questions the very God who made her, and plots a final scheme to save herself and her family from infamy.
