David L. is a rising black male author on the scene who has been creating quite a controversial buzz for a while as this mysterious urban thriller writer who can give Dean Koontz a run for his money in his latest hit, Over Your Dead Body! The critics are talking about his first edition that went out as arc galleys, but looked like the real thing I guess because there is nothing wrong with making a little money off of your pre-publication excerpts and galleys if you can do it. Something happened quite miraculously for David L. He’s become an urban street seller who is cornering a specific niche market that wants THRILLERS. If you’ve seen David L.’s new cover for his book, you may notice a man with his back turned, knife in hand and a lady who looks very familiar for some reason while laying dead on the grounds of a forest. I think that’s a famous author model. In fact, I am sure!Where I am getting at is how this bone chilling cover is so on point that if you are a black woman, you may feel like that lady on the ground is you! Okay, I said it! This book frightened me at first glance. I was like who dared to send me this book? Next thing I know, the guy who sent the book to Disilgold is not only the publisher, but standing right in front of me at a major event and attempting to introduce himself. I got goosebumps all over and looked for my bodyguards because for one, anyone who writes a book this morbid has got to have some kind of dark past, right? I am convinced that David L. is the character Preston Price whose wife Janelle, suspects he’s been cheating on her. I quickly dodge David L. and not to be rude, but he has this real eery look and doesn’t even smile in real life! I feel bad about this situation so I decide to read David L.’s book again without biased opinions. Nevermind that he’s a serious acting person, never smiles and quite mysterious. My goal is to review this book that folks are talking about with such critical praise, and has others ranting and raving over his personality issues so, that one may not be able to see the makings of a baby thriller writer. As I flipped the pages of OVER YOUR DEAD BODY, I now visualized Preston Price as David L. Hey, thanks for the visual Preston. I GET IT NOW! You go boy! David L. has been role playing as Preston Price in real life. Okay, so he’s a nice guy who’s been taken for granted by his wife and was true to her, but here comes the friends of the friends of the family and all the little trouble makers who get all in their business and distrust begins to turn into reality. In fact, it’s sort of scary funny and bone-picking chilling as episodes erupt! You suspect the worse and it happens as Preston fights desperately to save his image that his wife has destroyed. All I have to say to the women out there, never ever accuse your man of cheating on you unless you have hardcore facts because what you wish for may become deadly true! I rated David L’s book a sizzling 5 Stars! Don’t want to give away spoilers! He’s a fascinating thriller writer like Brnadon Massey thus far! If this author can pen 10 more thrillers he’ll officially be a modern day thriller writer for keeps. For now, David is that wonder boy with a wicked pen! The funniest line you can look forward to when this book is converted into a movie for the big screen is,” You ungrateful bastard! I HATE YOU!” But–Guess who said it! Look for David L.’s debut on the
