Casanegra follows the adventures of Tennyson Hardwick, a gorgeous, sexy former actor and gigolo living on the fringes of the good life in Hollywood. This story combines the glamour of Hollywood with the seedy hopelessness of the inner city. 

In this hot and steamy mystery, Tennyson is an actor struggling to hang on to his career and redeem his sex-for-pay history that estranged him from his family—especially his father, a decorated LAPD captain who raised Tennyson to call him “Sir.” Now, in the wake of his father’s sudden stroke, Tennyson has to save himself from taking the fall for a murder. In the process he discovers his hidden talents—the hard way.

    " Similar writing style to Walter Mosely and Valerie Wilson Wesley with a hint of sexy. It's a good page turner and it did keep me guessing til the end. "

    " I liked it. It felt like a modern Easy Rawlins mystery. "

    " Not the best work by Tanarive Due and Steven Barnes, in fact, the text reads is so tame that it reads like nothing either of them has written. Never the less, I enjoyed this book, it was like eating a Big Mac, not cuisine but fast food, very tasty but not nutritious. I did like the concept, kind of an updated take on an Easy Rawlins character - a very sexy struggling actor, former call boy who gets caught up in solving his friend's murder. The mystery was not well set up, not enough sublte clues to lead you to the "who did it" at the end. All this said, I still look forward to reading the sequel. "

    " I agree with the review by Ms. Sparrow. Not an awesome book, or especially challenging, but it is a good quick read. It's good for a plane ride, car/train trip, or when relaxing at home. What drags this book down is the bragadocious way Tennyson speaks of himself--a little irritating. "
