C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

Do or Die
DO OR DIE

Author:Grace Edwards

With her soulful voice and delicate beauty, Starr Hendrix seemed destined to live up to her name and hit it big as a jazz singer. But her career ended before it began, and Mali's father offered Starr a second chance by giving her top billing as singer for his popular jazz band's latest show. Mali isn't surprised when Starr doesn't show, but everyone is shocked when the troubled woman is found savagely murdered. The prime suspect is a low-life pimp with a grudge against Starr. But then the pimp stops a bullet, and everyone suspects Starr's devastated father of exacting his own revenge. Mali vows to use her experience as a former cop to find the real killer. Her search will take her in and out of the "three B's" of Harlem: the beauty shops, barbershops, and the bars. But it will also lead Mali directly into the path of a killer one who, if not stopped, will almost surely strike again.

NO TIME TO DIE

Author:Grace Edwards

On a sweltering Harlem summer night, ex-cop Mali Anderson steps out to celebrate her friend Claudine's divorce from a handsome, cheating deadbeat who couldn't keep his fists out of her face. But Claudine doesn't show up for their dinner. Instead, she is found brutally murdered in her elegant home just off Strivers' Row, and Mali has no doubt Claudine's ex did it. Despite his threats, she can't keep out of the investigation. Especially when another woman meets the same savage, bizarre fate..The two murders are just the start of a trail that leads street-smart Mali through the trash-talking and wise philosophizing of barbershops, beauty parlors, and bars...and toward a cunning killer whose homegrown hatred is zeroing in on Mali herself.

In The Shadow of the Peacock
IN THE SHADOW OF THE PEACOCK

Author:Gloria Edwards

The sheer power of Yearwood's story makes you feel as if you've been privy to everyone's secrets and desires. [It] is an absorbing and evocative portrait of a mother and a daughter, caught in the shadows of each other's pain and the slow dance within which they escaped it. It is also a stunning, moving photograph, illustrating how strong love can and should be between friends as well as men and women. With a poet's compression, Yearwood's prose has the resonance and sound of guitar strings tightening, then being plucked: the echo, suspense and power exuberate from one page to the next, carrying you through a myriad of emotions that she's so good at capturing." Terry McMillian

A Toast Before Dying
A TOAST BEFORE DYING

Author:Grace Edwards

On a busy Saturday night at a Harlem hot spot called the Half-Moon Bar, a shot rings out. Fatally wounded is a popular barmaid and sometime actress named Thea. The main suspect is the young, suave Kendrick, Thea's boyfriend and the brother of sleuth Mali Anderson's good friend Bert. Miss Bert, the straight-talking owner of Bertha's Beauty Shop, appeals to Mali to get her brother off the hook. As the story unwinds against the lushly painted backdrop of contemporary Harlem, old characters return (Mali's handsome boyfriend Tad, her jazz musician father, and her preteen nephew Alvin), new characters pop up (the colorful Too Hot, the elegant Gladys Winston), and Mali wends her way through one of the most fascinating neighborhoods on the globe to finally nail the murderer.
