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!
