Excerpt from Chapter II – “Devastation”:

Six weeks ago

Detective Dennis Edwards was worried as he pulled up in front of Karl’s apartment building near the corner of Fifteenth and Locust. There had been another murder, but this time the killer had made a mistake and Karl said he had irrefutable proof regarding the murderer’s identity. That, in and of itself, was not the problem. What had the hairs on the back of Dennis’s neck standing on end was the fact that Karl had sounded absolutely terrified when he’d told Dennis. In the short amount of time that he’d known Karl, Dennis had never seen his partner so much as break a sweat over anything.

With the strobe lights still flashing, Dennis exited his car quickly, leaving it double-parked in front of the building. He flashed his badge at the front desk of the lobby and bypassed the elevators, electing instead to take the steps two or three at a time up to the third floor. His heart racing, he thought for a second that he should call for backup then thought better of it. He did not want to look like a fool in front of his colleagues if it turned out that he had overreacted. In his heart, though, he knew that something was wrong. Karl’s phone line had gone dead before he could name the killer.

Excerpt from Chapter 1 – “Blindsided”:


With a stiff warm breeze blowing, there was not a cloud in sight. The night sky was filled to capacity with bright stars glittering like diamonds upon black velvet. For all intents and purposes, the evening was perfect as the crème de la crème of Philadelphia’s high society arrived via limousine, Hummer, or some combination thereof in front of the Devaux Center.

The Paul Devaux Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors October 16, 1990. With its red bricks and 150-foot barrel-vaulted glass roof and uniquely designed architecture, the building is widely considered to be one of the crown jewels of downtown Philadelphia.

Inside one of the projection booths, a clandestine meeting was taking place between Hollis, an audiovisual technician, and a woman who happened to be dressed to the nines for this particular evening’s festivities. With the lights turned off inside the tiny control room, her features were discreetly hidden from view.

Calm and cool, she lit a cigarette and took a long drag before finally releasing the smoke from her lungs. To the technician, she appeared to be a woman who had just experienced the ultimate orgasm. Her joy over the transaction taking place was obvious. A real ice-princess, this one was. After he finished placing the last of the money back into the knapsack, she finally spoke. Her voice was like a siren to him.

“Beneath The Surface” What do I say??????????


I have read every one of E. Lynn Harris’s books, and have enjoyed them all, even though I feel each one lost something, as related to the original theme. They seemed to move more mainstream, in each book, after “Invisible Life”.

I am also an advid John Grisham reader, and have read each of his books, and enjoyed most of them.

These two gentlemen have been my favorite authors.

They now have company. I have three favorite authors now. Tony Ginyard. Beneath the surface is clearly one of the most interesting, and enjoyable books I’ve read in a long time.

“Beneath The Surface” took me back to “Invisible Life”, a book that once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Every time I thought I had the book figured out, it took another twist. thsi book appeal to each part of your being, mind, body, and soul. It teased you, tantilized you, and intrigued you, in every area.

It also had the suspense, drama, and action of Run away Jury.

I can’t wait for the next one.

KOODOS To You. Excellent job. Do it again.

The book starts out exceptionally attention-grabbing and does not allow you to become aloof at all. Each one of the characters surrounding the main character Andre, play a significant role within the tale. All of the characters are equally exciting without becoming overshadowing to the main focus. The story is riveting, captivating, suspensful, and worthy of note. Once you start reading the book there is a feeling like you have to finish it to find out what happens next.

Tony Ginyard wrote this book in the leagues of the top authors in the game today. I found this book so enjoyable that I rearranged everything around me to read this book!

This is the best book I’ve read in a long time. I finished it in two nights. Within the first couple of pages it grabs you and won’t let go. I couldn’t wait to pick it up again and I never wanted it to end.
