Overview

Alan Cramer 'The Dark Story Teller'

Alan Cramer's second novel The Life is a murder mystery about a serial killer plaguing the Hood. As is pointed out in the book, serial killers often go unrecognized in the Black community. The police just chalk up the killings to ghetto violence. But this story shows how, drugs sex and murder become intertwined in the The life of the streets.

Detective Honey Sinclair is recently promoted African American female. Most of her fellow officers think she's a little too pretty and was promoted too fast. Her first case looks like a simple drug related murder, but Detective Sinclair suspects something different. As the bodies pile up it becomes apparent that a serial killer is on the loose.

But politics dictate that when the victims are black women and drugs are involved, we don't use the word serial killer. Besides Sinclair's fellow officers inform her, "A white woman downtown was raped, the department feels its more expedient to go after her rapist than to chase after the killer of black women, remember, this is New York."

The Life. Not for the squeamish.

This is not a fairy tale, there is no happy ending...

This was my first time reading Alan Cramer and I was pleasantly surprised. This urban drama had a good storyline with twists and turns from the first page to the end. The heroine Honey Sinclair was believable. I look forward to reading other books by Mr. Cramer. Good job!

I really enjoyed this book. Alan Cramer is quickly becoming my favorite author. His books will have you loving and hating all the characters. His character are like real life. You will be rooting for them in one chapter and despising them in another. If you like urban drama, then you will LOVE this book.

Honey Sinclair has her work cut out for her. As a beautiful woman, this detective has to fight everyday to prove she deserves her badge as much as the next officer. As the daughter of a street legend, fellow officers view her as a snitch. Family and friends view her as a trader. She can't please everyone as her loyalty is pulled in many different directions. Now Honey is trying to track a serial murderer. All eyes are on her. Will the case make or break her? Can she distinguish the blurry line between business and personal?

Second time author Alan Cramer won't be pigeon held as he shows his versatility in The Life, an urban suspense drama.
