The author is at his best when he describes the culture of hip hop and the personal experiences of being a Black man in America. The plot and characters, on the other hand, feel disjointed. This book is set in the recent past (2017), and I appreciate the author's unique spin on current events. For example: "What Trump shared with the hip hop moguls was they were all outerborough kids obsessed with Manhattan props. Trump wanted mad fame so much he splashed his name on every surface he owned, like a graffiti tagger using gold block letters...Trump deserved a special place in hell for combining rap aesthetics with racism."

The Darkest Hearts by Nelson George is the kind of book you have to read after you have read the prior books in the series. This book is a slow mystery that contains nothing different from the other mystery books i have read: death and gun boys and dark corners. That is not to say that it not an interesting read. I like now it has up to date references in music and i can relate to the language, or slang, they speak. I wanted to see if i could get into a book without having read the prior books in a series. this proves my point that it is not so easy. The book is definitely worth a second go over once i have read the books before it. And the plan is to read all the books in the D Hunter series. Then maybe it will be a smoother transition from book to book. ( )

Found this to be a very interesting book. It gave me an incite to growing up and living black in our US of A. Whether he just meant it as a conspiracy for the story or really trying to point out issues with our prison system, he hit a lot of nails on the head with how our private prisons and minority punishments go here.

I'm definitely going to have try some more worked from Nelson. Though to be honest, While D was an interesting character, I really liked the Serene story line a lot more, maybe just the fem fatale but I also have a huge problem with the people at the top of the sex trade and how they traffic people, so it was a nice thought of someone giving them what for.

Review: The Darkest Hearts by George Nelson.

This is an Early Reviewers Book that I thought was confusing or It’s because I don’t follow hip hop music. The reason I rated the book a three is that I am unfamiliar with the author’s work and I wanted to give him some credit even though I struggled through the story.

The plot was there but it was an up and down story line that kept me irritated because I really tried to understand what I was reading. I know this book is a mystery/murder along with the music industry however; most of the story was entwined with culture, politics, music, and street characters communicating something of their business with the music world and not much on the murder mystery and suspense. I’m not putting the writer’s work down it’s that I’m not formula with this subject matter. ( )

I like Nelson George as a writer. I liked him as a music critic. I'm slowly warming to him as a mystery writer.

The Darkest Heart is the latest to feature his protagonist, former doorman turned hip hop mogul D Hunter. Hunter is an interesting character and readers will find him instantly likable.

George's mystery books tend to be a little light on the mystery and instead consist of our protagonist being involved in a string of disparate activities that somehow become relateable in the end. Takes a little more suspension of belief than one might be inclined to give, but in the end, the books are usually rewarding though you may lose the plot a couple of times along the journey. . The Darkest Hearts is no different.

Give it a shot. You won't be sorry. ( )
