Publisher's Summary

Meet Darryl Graham, or as his new neighbors call him, The Man in 3B.
Darryl's new to the Jamaica, Queens building, but from day one he's made quite an impression on his neighbors. He has made it very clear he greatly values his privacy, but he is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be, so inquiring minds want to know. Unfortunately, in Darryl's world, what you know can hurt you. And when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.
Darryl has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can't stop talking about him. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Darryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be.
Darryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants' lives. Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Darryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Darryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Darryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he's ever known. Krystal, Darryl's first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet having Darryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And, last but not least, Avery, Connie's husband, doesn't care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way - that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.
Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.

Epilogue brings the story together

I was waiting for Carl Weber to drop a new book and I wasn't at all disappointed with this mystery. I like how Carl Weber let us meet the characters and the situations in their life that help you connect to the charcter. You even get the opportunity to meet the man in 3b and learn a lil about him before his death. I don't want to give anything away but I did like the narrators and the story was put together very well. It wasn't one of the best books I have read by Carl Weber but it kept my interest. Pretty good book Carl.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If I got paid to listen to it. I'm talking thousands of dollars

What could Carl Weber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made it remotely interesting and provided the characters with some depth

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Clearly they have never narrated an audio book before. It was appalling.

What character would you cut from The Man in 3B?

I was considering cutting my own throat after listing to this sh!t, but I'd just cut all the characters and listen to silence.

Any additional comments?
