From bestselling authors E. Lynn Harris and RM Johnson, the evocative story of twin brothers—one a straight man, the other gay—who find each other in adulthood and struggle to uncover many questions about themselves and one another, while also becoming entangled in a plot thick with deceit and suspense.
A spirited and tender novel, No One in the World focuses on two seemingly different men—Cobi Winslow, a gay, educated, affluent social climber, and Eric Reed, a straight, career criminal raised in the foster care system—who, separated as young children, reunite upon their parents’ death after thirty years apart.
Their reunion, however, is marred by the crooked plans of Eric’s former cellmate and Cobi’s struggles to raise enough money for his campaign for city council. With corruption, drug deals, and homophobia rearing their ugly heads, the two brothers may face the most difficult test of their relationship. This thought-provoking, honest, and page-turning tale is not to be missed.
Cobi Winslow is a powerful attorney who, having been adopted by a wealthy family, has lived a privileged life. However, discoveries of a long-lost, incarcerated twin brother, Eric, and a distressing clause in his parents' will set in motion a series of events that will threaten everything he has known. To further complicate the story, Cobi struggles to keep his homosexuality a secret for the sake of the family business, his reputation, and that of his lover Tyler, a state senator. When Cobi reunites with his brother, they bond, but Cobi's secret life leaves him vulnerable to blackmail by Eric's former cellmate, Blac, who has ten days to pay off a drug debt or else be killed. If this sounds convoluted, that's because it is. Harris' posthumous final novel, a collaboration with RM Johnson, is a mishmash of clich s, clunky plot devices, and improbable interactions among flat and unbelievable characters. As a result, the story, which admirably attempts to address real issues belonging, sexuality, and the age-old nature versus nurture debate falls short.
I love the book it took a day and a half to read but wanted more it left me hinging and wanting more.
This book kept me in suspense the entire read. I read this book in 2 days because I couldn’t stop reading it.
Perfect combination of secrets, lies, and sex
This book was a true E. Lynn Harris original. I love the art and visuals created in the work. Harris will be remembered forever.
