Ran Walker is an incredible author and I'm not just saying that because he's my mentor. *wink, wink*
Seriously, every time he drops something new I download or purchase it instantly. He's a serious quick-fix writer, a well-written author that pens stories that end way too soon.
The Illest follows Troy Dobbs, as he takes a post-graduation trip to pre-gentrified 1997 Brooklyn. Okay, I'm lying, he stayed in Brooklyn Heights. That's always been the nice side of town. However, that fact doesn't negate all the urban awesomeness that ensues.
While fathoming the reality of being in the home of Biggie and Jay, Dobbs takes in Brooklyn and the city's sights: the promenade, Broadway, and the people.
Getting ready for a summer alone, in a superior dwelling he's been allowed to housesit, he meets a woman who rocks his world.
Eris Perry is a movie star and friend of Troy's aunt. She's the type of movie star that doesn't take herself too seriously, the way most men would envision Sanaa Lathan outside of work. The two of them have an interesting ride.
The Illest is a guaranteed page-turner, something you could finish in two sittings or a long train ride.
