Misty Row is a fictitious, mist-filled, small town, set in Upstate New York. It is about a prominent, wealthy, African-American family-The Morgans. They have secrets and plenty of them. Deep, dark secrets and many issues. A host of multi-ethnic characters make the story entertaining and an edge-of-your-seat read. At times, it can be very dark, very moody, very colorful and always compelling. The happenings and goings-on in this tiny, smouldering hamlet make for plenty of surprises and much intrigue. The elemental, nightly mist, which filters the town, serves as an ominous backdrop for the stifling emotions with which the characters grapple, as well as the almost-choking challenges that they face. The story begins with twenty-eight year old homosexual Trey Morgan returning to his home town-Misty Row-after a mysterious, ten year absence. He has his relatively new lover, Darian Wakefield, in tow. Once Trey becomes reacquainted with the members of his family-especially his morose cousin, Antoinette, and his secret identical twin brother, Travis-the drama really begins. Darian gets an eyeful and then some. Disturbing, family secrets are exposed, as events crescendo into a shocking, final, cliff-hanging chapter-which could rival the nighttime dramas of yesteryear. Written in the old fashioned, soap opera style; this novel is very sexually explicit and, sometimes, quite graphic. The basic elements of the soap genre are all here: including backstabbing, plotting, love affairs, forbidden passions, and raging emotions. Definitely escape, fantasy reading, yet very real and very much based in the seeds of life's harsh and eye-opening realities. Just what secrets are those Morgans hiding?
