Title: A Person of Interest
Author: Ernest Hill
Felicia Fontenot has returned home to care for her ailing mother. She had known that her first love, Luther Jackson, and his wife, Juanita, the woman for whom he’d left her, live just across the street. Felicia is awakened one morning to the sound of sirens and the smell of smoke. She’s shocked to find that Luther’s house has burned and is now cordoned off by police tape. Luther’s aunt begs Felicia for help because Luther’s pregnant wife and his young son have been killed and Luther is the prime suspect. A feeling of unfulfilled love seemed to push Felicia into a forbidden world.
See what Felicia uncovers as she desperately scrambles to clear the name of her forbidden lover.
Ernest Hill is the critically acclaimed author of six novels. His award winning debut novel, Satisfied With Nothin’ not only garnered comparison to Richard Wright’s Native Son and Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, but also made its way onto required-reading lists at universities throughout the country. Renowned sociologist, Dr. Walter Allen declared it “one of the most accurate human portrayals of black men to be found in the literature.”
Hill’s rise from a small town boy living in the lap of poverty, to an Ivy League educated college professor, from a stereotypical “jock” to an acclaimed novelist who has become what Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Robert Olen Butler terms “one of our finest writers” – may help explain why New York Times bestselling author Zane says “I never miss reading a novel by Ernest Hill.”
