THAT DEVIL'S NO FRIEND OF MINE
Genre: Mainstream, Multicultural
Bishop Fontaine is a huge presence in the lives of his friends and family, and Mason adeptly shows how his death has an equally powerful impact on them. Diverse emotions flow across the pages, and readers will savor the intimacies and storylines that make this novel an exceptional offering.
Bishop Fontaine is a larger-than-life mortician whose business partner Lamar is obsessed with his 30-year-old daughter, Kristine. Rhonda, Lamar's wife, is suspicious about her husband's affection for Kristine.
Bishop's counsel keeps local singer Rayne drug-free after her husband's overdose. He's also a role model to Cole, a popular boxer. A mutual dislike exists between Cole's supermodel wife and Bishop, and when Bishop dies, temptation and anguish permeate all these characters' lives for different reasons. (ST.
