The Return of Black Literature:
Veteran Creative Writer Releases Two Distinct Novels That Reflect on Real Life Black Experiences
Nationwide (June 18, 2012) -- J. H. Hunt is a creative writer whose views are reflective of real life situations and responses to the stimuli and pressures prevalent in the Black community. In this vein, he has just published two new and distinct novels.
The first novel, Two Times Dead: Not Really a Love Story, is a thriller that reestablishes the prime character, Justone Steel from Still Dead After All These Years and pits him against some the most dangerous and cunning characters developed in mystery writing. This new novel, the first of a trilogy series, deals with an investigation that takes all the wrong turns, and a twisted NYC love affair that leave everyone guessing, from who died to why the death took place in the first place. Along the way Death, love, lies, and deceit all manage to get in the way of finding the truth; and if that were not enough the FBI seem hell bent on keeping this death under cover. Is it national security or something else that has everyone running for cover? Things are rarely what they seem!
The second novel, The Sexiest Woman in The World Died Yesterday, dwells more deeply into the Black experience as it explores and follows the life, loves, and missteps of its main character who is everything but the model one expects. Just her liquid salty voice was enough to create an atmosphere that made men needy and willing to risk everything, job, money, and wife for a moment in her arms. The story is told through the eyes of the various characters and their distinct perception of the world around them and how they must survive in that world. It is a unique study where good and bad have little relevance and as always the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
