About the Author
Could a Fiction Author Be on the Verge of a Three-Peat? Fictional Writer Has Followed His Own Advice to Present a Horrific Thriller That Has the Capacity to Produce Chatter in the Literary World! New York, NY (BlackNews.com) - A Three-peat is a known phenomenon in the world of sports, but could it also be assigned to authors in the realm of fictional writing? Can an author's first three novels reach the peak of having well created characters, well planned plots, along with climatic conclusions? Author Dwayne Murray, Sr., expresses, "It's important to me as a writer to give loyal readers just a little more than what they read in my previous novels. I never want to be guilty of 'short-changing' readers seeking good, thought provoking, and attention sustaining thrillers." Like A Good Neighbor (ISBN: 0976985525 - $ 14.95) is Murray's third self-published novel about a woman unfortunately slammed by life's most tragic events, which adversely compels her to find comfort in relocating and destroying the lives of everyone in her path. To see others happy in their lives is like a rotting disease to her because she detests happiness, intimacy, togetherness, and unconditional love. A knock-out beauty she is but she possess a baleful heart that is filled with hatred. But to her dismay the universe created an opposite to every soul bestowed with personal characteristics. Where there's darkness, there's light; where there's hate, there's love; and where there's war, there's peace. Murray has written a thriller that depicts a battle between good and evil. Like A Good Neighbor reveals just how people are so self-centered, easily manipulated, and would stop at nothing to bandage their wounded egos. Readers will find themselves drawn into each and every character as their lives hang in the balance. Murray promises readers, "Like A Good Neighbor will be a thriller many of you will find hard to put down even for a second!" From the self-published author who brought you The Mouse That Roared (ISBN: 0976985500 - $13.95) and the 2007 USA Best Book Award Finalist for Whatever It Takes (ISBN: 0976985519 - $13.95) returns with his third novel that guarantees to keep readers guessing, anticipating, and eagerly turning page after page. While readers sit on the edge of their seats they will ponder which will prevail in the end: Good or Evil.

666 Cypress Avenue has a wild variety of tenants that occupy the apartments. There's old Miss Cane and drug dealing Tyrone, who can't stand each other. Lawyer Tanya and her husband Teddy; Melinda the overwieght unemployed chick; Keisha the stuck up social service case worker; Dawn, her handicaped son Jake and her boyfriend Todd; handicapped mean spirited Ralph Jones and his daughter Patricia; Ida and Yasir Muhammed; Betty Wingo and her nerdy son Dexter; Mia Brown and her wanna be thug son Freddy; bitter, heartbroken, Jeff and his son Donald; Hispanic police officer Eddie; recovering crackhead Crystal Bright and of course Raven Thorn, the super friendly new tenant, who is on a mission to change the lives of those at 666 Cypress Ave forever!!!
Upon Raven's arrival she tries to get super friendly with all the tenants, only Crystal shows little to no interest in Raven's offers of friendship; Crystal detects something sinister within Raven. Too bad the rest of the tenants have fallen under Raven's spell....let's hope they can wake up before it's too late, because Raven is no ordinary lady, as they will soon find out!!!!
Like A Good Neighbor is set in Bronx in the apartment building of 666 Cypress Avenue and if the number is not a indication of the novel about to unfold, consider yourself warned.
The novel tells a story of all of the tenants that occupy this rat infested building and even though the living conditions are not the greatest they all are just trying to get by and make most of the current circumstances.
Like a Good Neighbor was a book I could not put down because of Raven Thorne the sexy bombshell that moves in to wreck havoc amongst the tenants of Cypress Ave.
She was truly the devil in the flesh and with Dwayne Murray's magnificent storyline readers alike will be engrossed by the story and all of the many messages being delivered throughout the novel.
Raven moves in and is the perfect manipulator and as easily as she applies her lip gloss she plots and executes the perfect plan of self destruction amongst those who she come in contact with.
Though Raven never pulls a trigger or uses a weapon her conversation is deadly. With that no one is safe in this building. The tenants begin to die due to unfortunate circumstances and one might wonder why but as you read on the only thing these people had in common besides the place they called home was those ever so pleasant conversations with Raven.
This was indeed a tale of good versus evil...I truly enjoyed this novel and for those fans of Stephen King and James Patterson will thoroughly enjoy this book and for me I EAGERLY anticipate the next book from this author.
