Richard Bingy Brown, fiction, Double Standards
Richard "Bingy" Brown, author of the action thriller "Living the Dream", returns to the literary world with the new novel, "Double Standards". In this gripping work of fiction, he invites readers to examine the complexity of human relationships in light of the experiences of a group of people bound and broken by love and lust, betrayal, murder, loyalty, desire and deception.
At the center of this intricate fable that sizzles with sex and Brown's signature blend of fact and fiction, are men and women who dare to examine the deepest chambers of the heart and psyche. There is strong-willed, 29-year-old Soneyah; the feisty Sylvia; Shevaughn, whose love and devotion to her husband did not spare her 10-year marriage from the pain of infidelity; Asia, a 24-year old single mother of three and Rosemary, whose adolescence marred by sexual abuse makes it almost impossible for her to trust men. These women are uniquely different but they are bound to one another by their negative experiences with men and their determination to give their male counterparts a taste of their own medicine.
On another layer of the story are four men, Rayman, Luke, Knuckles and Hives, who will not let anything get in the way of their faithlessness and womanizing- even their own partners. The end of their odyssey of discovery will reveal to each character unexpected destinies and a stunning truth about themselves and those they love.
Witty, sharp and thoroughly engaging, "Double Standards" is a searing story of life peopled by broken yet real souls on the road to discovering redemption and what it truly means to love.
