Lust, lies and the law collide in . . . Murder on the Down Low.

Savvy L.A. attorney Vernetta Henderson takes center stage in another fast-paced legal thriller that erupts into a scandalous tale of vengeance.

Prominent African-American men are being gunned down on the streets of Los Angeles, leaving police completely baffled. The victims are all quintessential family men. Well-educated. Attractive. Successful. But appearances can be deceiving.

At the same time, Vernetta and her outrageous sidekick, Special, lead the charge for revenge against a young lawyer whose deception caused his fiancée's death. For Special, hauling the man into court and suing him for wrongful death just isn't good enough. While she exacts her own brand of justice, a shocking revelation connects the contentious lawsuit and the puzzling murders.

Soon, Special's quest for payback goes way too far, and this time . . . it appears that not even Vernetta can save her.

I really enjoyed this book. I would have never guessed who the killer was. A part of me is still like WHAT!!!! Because the identity of the killer seemed to come out of nowhere. But I guess that¿s what made this book a good read. You really find yourself putting your own biases in check. Thing are not always as clear as they seem to be.

And we as woman need to take ownership of our bodies and our decisions to relinquish our treasures to anyone who wants it not just thdl but also low down dirty mr i need 3women to get it in.

I couldn't put it down. It will really keep your attention. The author made sure she kept you guessing. I definitely recommend this novel. It was great to read a book that starred professionals who were of color, and who were women.

I really had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. Several African American men are murdered. The first is Dr. Banks. He is shot and killed as he is getting out of his car at the parking structure as he was returning to work from his "lunch break". J.C., a female homicide detective, was called to the scene. After more murders she has a theory about what is going on, but the lieutenant doesn't want to hear it. J.C., Vernetta, Nichelle, and Special were all friends, but lost their friend Maya who supposedly died of pneumonia. Maya left a husband behind named Eugene. Special comes into the funeral and announces something to the crowd about Maya's death that is a surprise to everyone. Vernetta is a lawyer and has a boss named O'Reilly. She has been trying to get partner for the longest time, but a new lawyer named Haley tries to move in and take the spotlight from her. Nichelle is also a lawyer but at a different firm. There are so many twists and turns in this book. I thought I figured out who the killer was, but then I wasn't sure because then it seemed like it could be someone else. It was a total surprise to find out the answers at the end! There are so many surprises. I didn't find any faults at all with this book and highly recommend it!
