"Be sure to keep the lights on for this thriller!"
|One Last Deadly Play|
New York, NY - Celebrity Journalist/Bestselling Author Flo Anthony returns with One Last Deadly Play, which was recently released digitally on Tuesday, June 7, 2016. The novel marks the highly anticipated sequel to her 2013 release “Deadly Stuff Players”.
Almost two years ago, along with law enforcement officers, the nation's most popular Black Gossip Columnist, Valerie Rollins and her crime solving partner, Rome Nyland, an NFL Hall of Famer turned Private Investigator, discovered that retired Los Angeles Wildcats baseball player Royale Jones' real identity is Rolondo Jemison, his look-a-like cousin. A career criminal, Rolondo, had been presumed dead.
The question was, "What happened to the real Royale?," whom Valerie never revealed to anyone that she had an intimate past with. On this particular Tuesday morning, a mysterious man who has been living on a deserted island in the Bahamas with amnesia for the past five years, suddenly gets his memory back when he sees a photo of Rolondo in a newspaper article that also mentions Valerie's name.
At the same time in Los Angeles, Rolondo shoots his way out of an L.A. courtroom and flees to New York City where Valerie is helping her fiance, Black dot com billionaire Victor Dumas and his son, Vance, a jockey, put together an all Black Polo Club that will compete this summer in the Hamptons Polo Classic. Once Val and crew land in the Big Apple, they find out their Los Angeles home has been invaded, members of their staff have been killed and Rome's fiancee Turquoise Hobson, is missing.
Vance's wife, Kentucky Derby winning jockey Violet McClean has left him, and secretly joined forces against the Dumas family with Rolondo and Victor's worst enemy, his half--brother Sincere, to kidnap she and Vance's daughter for billions in ransom and eventually kill Victor and Valerie. The dastardly trio is also after a trunk filled with gold, silver and bills hidden in an underground safe in a secret room beneath the Holy Tabernacle of Mary Magdelene Church in the Hamptons' historically black neighborhood that is in Sag Harbor. The church was once the last stop on the Underground Railroad.
Follow this eclectic cast of characters along with supermodels, socialites, a treacherous minister, the Bugatti Blades and an Olympic Figure Skater as they navigate the streets of New York City and the glittering Hamptons, all the while making new love connections as well as renewing past ones, dodging bullets and death, but most importantly, Valerie and Rome are once again trying to keep the bad guys from making One Last Deadly Play.
