My Review - 4 Great to the last drop
I read Pamela Samuels Young, Buying Time thriller last year and loved it, it was on my top ten of 2010. I was delighted when Tracee, the Virtual Assistant from Pump up your Books contacted me to read this one. I have to give PamelaSY praises for being an author that crossed over, what I mean by that is, in my opinion Black authors usually only draw Black readers. Buying Time completed is for anyone that loves a great edge of seat thriller, but I think Murder on the Down Low is a great Mystery and still has ingredients of makes a great story but it was DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA, more of what I consider black readers love and expect from black authors.
The storyline will not be for everyone. African American established married men on the down low, having a secret gay life. There is a serial killer disgusted with this action and out to kill them all. If any of you watched the show Soul Food or Girlfriends, this had that flair to it. The story reminded me of author E.Lynn Harris, he wrote books on the invisible life of gay African American men.
Pamela SY executes well. She always has the perfect balance of characters and they are all important to the story. Short chapters that make you want to continue reading. This book was entertaining but also made you aware of an African American dynamic within the community with AIDS statistics.
