THE MASTER OF URBAN SUSPENSE
I CAME TO BRING THE PAIN
After the disastrous results of Wanda’s power hungry reign, a state of war now exists on three fronts. Mike Black is back and he is firmly in command of his family. Bobby Ray is serving as wartime consigliere and Rain Robinson has taken over running the day to day operation.
TREAT ME NICE
As Black and Shy adjust to life in New York with their children and running their legitimate business, there are events unfolding all around them that will once again turn their world upside down.
After the bombing, Impressions has reopened for business and Bobby’s problem with the FBI has returned. Wanda’s reign has been a very dangerous quest to settle old scores and expand her power. Now Wanda is surrounded on all sides by her enemies.
Carmen Taylor finds that she is in over her head while investigating the bribery of a US Congressman. And if that isn't enough for Black and Shy to have to deal with, Jada West is back in New York.
Wanda Moore finally has exactly what she’s always wanted—she is in control of Mike Black’s criminal organization. Wanda got some advice from Mike Black: “You’ll be all right as long as you use that power you’re carrying now wisely. If you don’t, that power will corrupt you faster than anything I know.” In the short time that she’s been carrying power, Wanda has made some powerful enemies. She has made one powerful and loyal ally: Rain Robinson. During Wanda’s Reign, Rain has proven time and time again that she is a good soldier and loyal ally to Wanda. But you know how Rain carries it; she’s made some new enemies of her own. Meanwhile, in Nassau, Jada West is miserable because Black hasn’t spoken to her, much less seen her, since the day he told her that he was going back to Shy. Now Jada only sees one alternative. She plays the only card that she has left in order to get back what she’s lost.
THE INDICTMENT OF MIKE BLACK
In this prelude to Wanda’s Reign, Robert King is in jail awaiting trial for the murder of Camesha Collins and several counts of conspiracy to commit murder. He is grieving the murder of his son Ronald, who died at the hands of Rain Robinson. King blames one man for all his troubles—Mike Black. From his prison cell, King plots his revenge. He is determined to have Black join him behind bars. He gets an opportunity when he hears an urban legend about Black. Knowing that all urban legends have some basis in fact, King takes a shot. The result: Mike Black is arrested and charged with kidnapping a U.S. congressman.
It has taken some time and some careful planning and preparation, but Wanda Moore finally has what she has always wanted. She is now the head of the criminal organization. A position that Wanda felt she deserved for quite some time. With the power she’s carrying, Wanda moves quickly to consolidate her power. Now, with enemy-turned-loyal ally, Rain Robinson, at her back, Wanda is furthering their business concerns, settling old scores and making new enemies.
