Product Details


Praise for The Harlem Renaissance Mysteries

“This book was an engaging, captivating, suspenseful, and enjoyable historical mystery and character journey.” Mystery and Suspense Magazine

“Suspenseful… Harlem Sunset excels at illustrating the culture of the late 1920s–and at capturing a woman dealing with her choices while simultaneously discovering what she wants in life.”-Shelf Awareness

“A vivid crime story and an engrossing depiction of an era.”-Kirkus

“In this terrific series opener, Afia evokes the women’s lives in all their wayward and beautiful glory, especially the abruptness with which their dreams, hopes and fears cease to exist.”—The New York Times

“Tightly paced, razor sharp, and with a wonderful no-nonsense protagonist, Dead Dead Girls made me fly through the pages. Ms. Afia is one to watch.”—Evie Dunmore, USA Today bestselling author of A Rogue of One’s Own

“Debut author Nekesa Afia brings 1920s Harlem to life in this twisty tale of murder and betrayal where nothing and no one is as it seems.”—Victoria Thompson, USA Today bestselling author of Murder on Wall Street

“Readers will root for intrepid, fiery Louise.”—Publishers Weekly

“‘Though she be but little, she is fierce.’ Shakespeare might as well have been describing Louise Lloyd, the flawed yet fantastic protagonist in Afia’s debut set in 1920s Harlem. I loved the world that Afia created and can’t wait to follow Lou and her friends on their next adventure. Come for the wonderfully diverse and twisty mystery, stay for the amazing 20s slang and fashion.” Mia P. Manansala, author of Arsenic and Adobo
