Publisher's Summary

A smooth, savvy, sardonic, gay, criminal law attorney, Ravonne Lemmelle has been hired fresh out of Harvard Law School to Savino, Martir and Associates, a large Philadelphia firm. A recently separated, single father of one, with a few acquittals under his belt, he's got a soft spot for no one, but the law. On a dark January morning, Wydell James was arrested for killing several people attending a party in Germantown: a section of North Philadelphia. Now he's in a jail cell with no one to turn to, but his childhood friend, Ravonne Lemmelle. One thing makes Ravonne feel powerful; forcing prosecutors to dig deep into their legal coffers to sit across the courtroom from him. His investigation turns up more suspects, a new purpose to kill, and Ravonne realizes the power is closer - and more obtainable - than he could ever possibly known. Things become more complex when two people enters his life: his estranged wife and a serial killer. But Ravonne's one purpose: an acquittal for Wydell James.

Would you try another book from Rahiem Brooks and/or Derick Alexander?


What could Rahiem Brooks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

more story - less meaningless conversation

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

the narrator was fine

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Murder in Germantown?

Almost all with involving the "hero's" child. A 5 yr. wise beyond his years whose purpose is to play sitcom cute for the amusement of the adults - and, supposedly, the readers.

Any additional comments?

running commentary on what people are wearing and what music they're listening to -just not much story.
