About Down and Dirty...

Ex-con and likeable landlord Amos Brown is back in action, folks, defending an old friend accused of murder and battling an

unexpected foe that threatens his beloved Harlem.


 What Reviewers Are Saying…


“…subtle social commentary and thought provoking dialogue.  Down and Dirty is

 a very good, complex and enthralling read filled with mystery and mayhem.”

-4 ½ stars, recommended read, Rawsistaz Reviews-


“…Ms. Singer creates an unvarnished view of Harlem, peopled by a motley group

of vivid characters that entertain even as they teach a subtle lesson…a memorable

 story, well executed and delivered.”

   -FMAM Mostly Mystery Review


“The scenes in the tunnel under New York will haunt you long after you finish

 reading the book… (And someone tell Jerry Bruckheimer he might have another hit series here if he moves fast.)”

                       -New Mystery Reader-


“If you liked A Landlords’ Tale, you will love Down and Dirty.  A fast-paced read.”

                       -4 ½ stars, Shay of PeopleWhoLuvGoodBooks-


“Singer paints a vivid and gritty picture of vintage Harlem: there are neither angels nor saints and appearances are usually deceiving. In the end, this is a convincing love story about Brown's neighborhood. Readers of urban fiction will appreciate the snappy pacing and compromised characters.”

                       Publishers Weekly



And if you haven’t read Ms. Singer’s first novel, A Landlord’s Tale, recently optioned for film by Laurence Fishburne's Gypsy Cinema Productions, get a copy of that one, too. You won’t regret it—it’s a blast--fun, fast, and furious!
