The Electronic Village was contacted recently by Jean Libby who is the editor of a new Africentric book called John Brown Mysteries. She informed us that
"We are a nonprofit publications. Our goal is to reach as many people as possible interested in scholarly Africentric history. I am finding, since sinking $20,000 of my own funds in this (not the group, not the publisher) that I need to speed the process of paying the printer and typesetter bills. I teach community college history classes. Lots of them. Please let me know where to send a review copy for possible inclusion on the Electronic Village list."We want to assist the sister in selling her book. You can help by sending her an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know that you would like to learn more about her book!

Homicide detective Joe Johnson has been assigned the case of his high school best friend Raymond Taylor, who has been found murdered in his home with his brains blown out. The detective finds his friend has been in litigation with the city council of Kansas City MO about his property which sits in the path of a proposed highway project. The Mayor shows dissatisfaction when he questions council members. It is also discovered that Raymond led a double life involving manipulating relationships, extortion, and betrayal. The twist about this detective is that, while trying to find love in his life, he compromises department policy in the process. Detective Joe Johnson and his older partner, Vernon Brown, provide light-hearted comical satire, while sorting through witnesses and clues in the case. The story is action packed yet romantic with riveting love scenes and real life situations that touch your heart.

Wayne's Mom notes,
"This is the third in a series of Blanche books. The author is Barbara Neely. I'm not sure how it's doing at your bookstore, but I'd venture to say most of us Villagers would get a kick out of Blanche. She's a dayworker...a housekeeper. Intelligent. Witty. And finds herself an amateur sleuth."
