Meet Darryl Graham, or as his neighbors call him…

The Man in 3B

Darryl has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can’t stop talking about him. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Darryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. Darryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants’ lives.

Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Darryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Darryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Darryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he’s ever known. Krystal, Darryl’s first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend—but having Darryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And last but not least, Avery, Connie’s husband, doesn’t care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way—that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.

Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.

    " Carl Weber has done it again.This book had so much drama from the beginning to the end,and in true Carl Weber fashion a great twist at the end.It's a must read.When you think you know where this story is going,it completely goes in another direction.The Man in 3B contained some interesting characters who all had a story,but Daryl the man that lived in 3B by far had the most interesting story line.I would definitely recommend this book.

    " This was a really good book! Couldn't put it down with trying to figure out what happened next. However, towards the end of the book it became predictable and I knew what was going to happen next. I definitely recommend this book, you will enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Revae | 1/20/2014

    " Carl Weber does not let his fans down with this one. Darryl Graham, the man in 3B, is lusted after by all the women and respected by all the men, and one day he turns up dead in his apartment. This was an intriguing, page-turning, "who dunnit" novel. Everyone's a suspect. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, Weber throws a curve which sends the novel in another direction. The novel is told from everyone's persepctive, but Darryl's. I think it was well-done! I can't wait for Weber's next novel. "
