5.0 out of 5 stars Excellently written, great read 25 Oct. 2014
By Luv2read - Published on Amazon.com

A thrilling start, the pace is set as Dr. Oma Mae Adams leaves the television station she works at as a televangelist, to notice paparazzi and without warming comes screams, “Black bitch!” setting the stage for the evil that is to come in this well done suspenseful story. There is no let up with action and dialogue, scene after scene in what reads like a literary classic, so well done is the writing of the two very talented authors: Linda Lee Greene and Debra Shiveley Welch. This is no ordinary murder mystery, it is a journey into the dark side of the of what Carl Jung calls “our shadow.” Filled with all that it is to be human: romantic interludes, mystery, relationship issues, mundane every day occurrences; there is great depth and reality to the read. And that reality is needed when the supernatural mixes with history, romance, and the unexpected twists and turns continue, and continue. The fundamental question brought out in the book, one with a surprise answer (which I didn’t see coming, and coming) is why was Dr. Oma Mae Adams, a philanthropist, so brutally gunned down? Where this work excels and shines is in the flashbacks to Oma Mae’s earlier life; when jazz was not just music but a way of life and nostalgia imbues the lines of writing creating images that the fly off the page. Right down the last pages, when the body is being viewed, and the shooter lie mumbling in a hospital, the intrigue continues with plots within plots written like the best of whodunits, giving complicity an open door that doesn’t shut till the last page is closed. What a read! Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Movie in Book Form -- Starring Jesus Gandhi & Oma Mae Adams 29 Jan. 2007
By Rita Corcoran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book of such vivid color and explosive feelings that I'm tempted to call it a "Sense-Surround" experience; I felt as if I were in a movie theater. This book IS cinema. From the opening scene, the reader is involved in you-are-there scenarios. The writing is fully engaging. You will identify with some characters, loathe others, and be intrigued by all. There is a lot happening in each and every chapter but the characters are all distinct, and they combine and entwine in fascinating ways. It was a very satisfying read . . . no need to speed through -- savor and let the story unravel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense to the Very End! 26 Nov. 2006
By Arlene R. O'Neil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have just turned the final page of Jesus Gandhi Oma Mae Adams. What an exciting, touching, heart-felt novel, which had me alternating between tears and laughter.

The development of the relationship between Gabriel and Oma was extremely touching, well written and very descriptive. I could picture Oma cuddling closely with Cuy and feel the softness of his fur.

Together, these authors have written a wonderful story, filled with twists and turns from beginning to end.

Congratulations on a successful collaborative effort which blended itself into a thrilling read!
