Eric Jerome Dickey was born in Memphis, Tennessee on July 7, 1961. He received a degree in computer system technology from the University of Memphis. In 1983, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked in the aerospace industry as a software developer. Soon after starting his job, he decided to become an actor and a stand-up comedian, which eventually lead him to a writing career. He attended UCLA's Creative Writing classes and in 1994, his short story Thirteen appeared in the IBWA's River Crossing: Voices of the Diaspora - An Anthology of the International Black Experience.
His books include Milk in My Coffee; Liar's Game; Chasing Destiny; Between Lovers; Thieves' Paradise; The Other Woman; Sleeping with Strangers; Waking with Enemies; and An Accidental Affair. He received the awards for Best Contemporary Fiction and Author of the Year (Male) at the 2006 African American Literary Award Show.
True to form, Dickey (Pleasure; Tempted by Fate; Resurrection at Midnight) delivers once again with his latest romantic psychodrama. Hollywood screenwriter James Thicke is out for revenge after a scandalous video of his famous actress/wife Regina Baptiste and fellow actor Johnny Bergs is sent to his cell phone and later goes viral on the Internet. With a well-paced plot, well-developed characters, and Dickey's love of travel on full display, this classic tale of lust, juicy scandal, and murder will leave readers hungry for the next Dickey installment.
Verdict: Those faithful followers of Dickey and new readers searching for a steamy interlude before summer will relish his latest treat.
