"Exhilarating dark paranormal romantic suspense"
DC the vicious 52nd Street Crew led by prison escapee
Jango, a local fief, rules the neighborhood through
violence. Currently the gang is mugging Guy Brooks until
former Ranger Thea Morris led here by her psychic skills
rescues the battered victim. He calls her his angel, but
she says she is a Ghetto Cinderella who needs to leave
before the cops arrive.
Jango is coming for Thea while she protects a child from
him and his crew and searches for the boy' missing mother.
Her goals are to send the abusive gang lord back to prison
and reunite mother and son. Her visions paint a deadlier
landscape that contains no happily ever after as she and
Guy appear inside Jango's torture chamber. She concludes
that to protect the man she believes she loves she must
keep him at all costs out of her showdown with Jango, but
Guy refuses to heed her pushing him aside as he needs to be
at the side of his princess.
This is an exhilarating dark paranormal romantic suspense
with the emphasis on the action that culminates in a
contemporary gender bending High Noon. The story line leaps
from one action scene to another while readers never quite
catch their breath as we root for the fabulous protagonist,
whose prime ally is Maurice the 9 mm to defeat her evil
adversary. As the author did with A PERSONAL MATTER, Karyn
Langhorne provides a strong deep urban tale that this time
looks at STREET LEVEL life.
