    Beyond The Cover with #1 NY Times Bestselling author Nelson Demille

    in Books

    Beyond The Cover is brought to you by Suspense Magazine and one of the shows on the Suspense Radio Network.  www.suspenseradionetwork.com and www.suspensemagazine.com.  Hosted by John Raab and Jeff Ayers, you will hear book reviews, industy news, publishing tips and author guests. On tonight's show we are pleased to interview #1 NY Times Bestselling author Nelson Demille and his latest book "Radiant Angel".

    "Radiant Angel": 

    After a showdown with the notorious Yemeni terrorist known as The Panther, Corey has left the Anti-Terrorist Task Force and returned home to New York City taking a job with the Diplomatic Surveillance Group. Although Corey's new assignment with the DSG—following Russian diplomats working at the U.N. Mission—is thought to be "a quiet end," he's happy to be out of the FBI. But Corey realizes something the U.S. government doesn't: The all-too-real threat of a newly resurgent Russia.

    Prescient and chilling. DeMille's new novel takes us into the heart of a new Cold War with a clock-ticking plot that has Manhattan in its crosshairs.

    Notorious in the Neighborhood with Joshua Rothman, Ph.D.

    in History

    Notorious in the Neighborhood 
    Sex and Families Across the Color Line in Virginia, 1787-1861
    "Laws and cultural norms militated against interracial sex in Virginia before the Civil War. Nonetheless, it was ubiquitous in urban, town, and plantation communities throughout the state. In Notorious in the Neighborhood, Joshua Rothman examines the full spectrum of interracial sexual relationships under slavery-from Thomas Jefferson, Sally Hemings, and the intertwined interracial families of Monticello and Charlottesville, to commercial sex in Richmond, the routinized sexual exploitation of enslaved women, and adultery across the color line. 
    White Virginians allowed for an astonishing degree of flexibility and fluidity within a seemingly rigid system of race and interracial relations, Rothman argues, and the relationship between law and custom regarding racial intermixture was always shifting. As a consequence, even as whites never questioned their own racial supremacy, the meaning and significance of racial boundaries, racial hierarchy, and ultimately of race itself always stood on unstable ground--a reality that whites understood and about which they demonstrated increasing anxiety as the sectional crisis intensified."
    Joshua Rothman is Professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Alabama, where he is also Director of the Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South.

    Tanika Honey Ward and her Queen of the South Trilogy

    in Writing

    Tanika, a strong Christian believer, states, I don't know what that thing is that plaguing you and keeps making you feel like you cannot get through it nor achieve it. But, just like DAVID, if you pursue it, you will overtake and recover it all!!! MOVE Forward, GOD is with you!!!!

    Now for an exerpt from her first book in the series:

    Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Zedekiah Strickland was the daughter of Herman Strickland; a wealthy city developer. Zedekiah’s family afforded their daughter with a lavish lifestyle. However, all of that changed, when Zedekiah’s father was falsely accused of horrific sex crimes. 

    Jessur, is the heir to the most notorious drug cartel in Mexico, however he longs to leave the lifestyle and leaves to attend college in The States. While there, he meets Zedekiah and falls in love. With his birthright as King of the Cartel looming, Jessur has a tough decision to make. Will he choose love or the cartel? 

    After the accusations against her father, the Feds seized the Strickland family’s assets and Zedekiah was forced to find a hustle to help take care of her family; and pay for the best lawyer to defend the charges pinned against her father. Zedekiah abandoned all of her values, when she decided to become a madame of an escorting business alongside her best friend Monique. 

    Zedekiah worked hard to take over the underworld of Atlanta in pursuit of the person(s) that were responsible for destroying the Strickland family. Thus, becoming the ‘Queen of the South.’
