Carl Weber is a New York Times bestselling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache.
In The Choir Director, Bishop T. K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.
Carl Weber takes readers back to church, where preaching isn’t always enough, nothing goes better with the Word than a song, and it’s time for some hard-earned lessons in love, brotherhood, and betrayal.
Bishop T. K. Wilson has done all he can to make First Jamaica Ministries a success. But with his last choir director getting caught in a scandal, attendance and cash flow are down. To fill the pews and collection plates, the bishop is counting on a new choir director, the charismatic Anthony Mackie, to revive the church.
Anthony Mackie has been waiting his entire life for the opportunity to prove he has what it takes to be a big-time choir director like Kirk Franklin. But while Anthony is more than up to the challenge, his ways around women, both past and present, could cost him more than his job.
Savannah Dickens is just one of the women who has caught Anthony’s attention. The choir needs a soloist, and Savannah, a beautiful singer who once topped the charts, also needs the church. She has a voice that could break any man’s heart, but now she just wants to be left alone to reclaim her faith.
First Lady Monique Wilson is far from being the typical first lady. She does and says what she wants, and doesn’t subscribe to church politics. Despite her shortcomings and a past rumored to include a long list of men, she’s willing to do just about anything to protect the bishop.

The members of First Jamaica Ministries are also keeping the bishop busy with choir infighting, romantic jealousies, and personal vendettas. You’d think the bishop was being tested enough, but a final piece of the puzzle has yet to be revealed: Someone has been robbing the church blind, someone whose connection to the bishop is far too close for comfort.
