Dee dropped out of high school the moment her mother's battle with cancer took a downward spiral. She became the unlikely breadwinner in a house that had too much pain and not enough money. That also meant dealing with a transient father who struggled with addiction. Dee had more than paid her dues; she had been overcharged by life from the very beginning.

When Auntie M brought Dee to live in Atlanta, things were supposed to be better than life in the Chicago projects. In Atlanta, Dee had new clothes, a full fridge, and her own bedroom. She could finally have a future dictated by opportunity and not circumstance.

However, she soon realized that even this opportunity came with its own price. Something was off about the overdose of Pastor Clifton, her aunt's best friend and secret love. And no one is asking the question how did the community's leader and political activist end up slumped over his desk-dead? Auntie M finally emerges from her fog of grief ready to get justice, and Dee is more than willing to help. But in a church full of gossips, no one is saying a word.

In Dee's world, people who had that kind of power were at least honest about their crimes. But here, in a world of saints it was difficult to distinguish the players and, more importantly, the mastermind who was manipulating everyone from behind the curtain.

Four Star Review:

By McKeon Websteron May 3, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition
The story started off slow but quickly picked up the pace once the groundwork was laid. The mystery of the story kept me guessing and I was wrong every time. Lol! I love stories that lead, mystify and entertain me all at the same. "From Behind The Curtain" did all three and then some.

If you're looking for a predictable storyline this one is not it!

If you're looking for something new to sweep you away from your everyday life, you owe it to yourself to read this one. You won't be disappointed.

You know that a book is better than good when you find yourself getting angry at a character and falling in love with another. I personally have to say hats off to the author for putting this book together in such a beautiful yet seductive way, this one surely has the making of a classic. The truth is, I fell in love with Dee. The author did a great job of seamlessly blending the characters and the story creating a very natural environment for readers to dive into. I do recommend this book to everyone looking for a solid book to read.

Truly one of the best books I have seen this year, not the average failed attempt at creating a suspense mystery story, but a pleasantly well written story everyone can love. The author has certainly displayed her artistic writing ability by creating one of the most natural and easy to read books. The natural delivery of the author spilled over into the story its self as its relatable plot made it even more difficult to stay away from . A true attention getter where everything seems so real. A definite good read.
