Renowned for her Tamara Hayle mystery series featuring titles including: Devil's Gonna Get Him; Where Evil Sleeps; No Hiding Place; When Death Comes Stealing and Easier to Kill Valerie Wilson Wesley explores new territory in Ain't Nobody's Business if I Do. Leaving the comfort of her successful franchise, Wilson Wesley brings acute powers of observation to a modern tale of mature relationships on the rocks. The triumphant result will surprise and satisfy fans, old and new.

For a writer, playing it safe can be a dangerous (if lucrative) choice. Having established a public voice, a writer will generally adhere to that publicly recognized signature. Repeated successes, and the desire to please, are strong lures. The rare writer, however, will challenge the audience's preconceptions, pushing boundaries, abilities, and comfort zones. Such derring-do separates writers from mere storytellers.

Like this author's style a lot, especially the way she uses all the best parts of "gumshoe" conventions and puts interesting spins on the rest of 'em.

Nothing learned is ever wasted--ever.

Her characters are emotional and engaging, and defined by their desires and fears, rather than their relative darkness. lightness, privilege or deprivation. Wilson makes use of the "gumshoe" conventions as they suit her story. _Devil's Gonna Get Him_ was easy to relate to, even for a White, middle-class reader like me
