“Eric and Joanna Harland are having the night of their lives at a reception celebrating a milestone event- their wedding. The festivity, however, is short-lived, for only a few hours later twenty-one year old Eric Harland is murdered at the hands of the NYPD after a raid gone wrong. Understandably, Joanna is distraught, but determined not to let the memory of her innocent husband die. She turns her pain and loss into a campaign to bring the officers to justice, but after months of fighting the officers are aquitted and free to return to their jobs. After the loss, she finds comfort in the company of her late husband’s cousin Charles Wakefield – a suspected arms dealer who was wounded that night in the raid that killed her husband. But when Wakefield goes to prison for life, Joanna disappears… and that’s when the killings start.”
AJ Williams, author of Flame of Retribution, released his book this past spring and has been zealously promoting the book in the tri-state area and beyond. He most recently made his way out to Atlanta from July 20th-23rd for Bronx Day for multiple book signings and appearances.
Prior to his promo run down south, Williams, who is also an actor, director, playwright, and screenwriter, made an appearance on the Natacha Knows Show in New Jersey, which aired on Verizon Fios Channel 26, to talk about his early start in acting, along with his latest book release.
What’s Hot in Hip Hop made our way to one of Williams’ first signings in June out in Harlem at Juice Solution, located at the corner of 149th & Frederick Douglass Boulevard. It was obvious there is a high level of support from the community for this bright star for his latest release, one of the most controversial novels of the year. Inspired by the Sean Bell case and other officer-involved shootings, Williams embarked on a three-part series of books, this being the first in the series.
What’s Hot in Hip Hop congratulations AJ Williams on his latest release and looks forward to supporting his future endeavors.
