I AM…: The unsettling truth is a thrilling novel that is the perfect novel for those looking to be taken on a dark, twisty-turny but an emotive journey. The story the reader will encounter in I AM…: The unsettling truth is shocking but also sensational, and unlike anything, I have read before. As I read the book I noticed that the story is shrouded in a tremendous amount of mystery, secrecy and suspense and the reader will not be able to guess where the plot is going at all and that is thanks to ...more

I have read a lot of books that deal with police murdering innocent black men, women, and children and they all end the same: with protests that fall on deaf ears and cops (slave patrol) getting away with murder --as they have been doing for centuries.

“I Am” grabbed my attention immediately, but it started to wane along the way. Halfway through, I begin to lose interest because some things were unbelievable in my opinion and the pacing was slow. The falling action of the arc seemed to go on forever and I questioned where the story was going. I may have struggled with this book because it mirrored the current events with police brutality, so my review may change once I settle down and unpack what I just read.

I feel like saying very much about this story will be a spoiler. The basics are that Sandy (a doctor) and her husband Xavier (a police officer) are a happily married couple. But when a police officer shoots a person of color under questionable circumstances and Sandy realizes how easily this could have been her, Xavier, or others in their community, things get shaken up.

This story looks at a long-time issue in the US of law enforcement appearing to be too quick to pull the trigger and then suffe
