KINGSTOWN BURNING: A NOVEL
Marley Cadogan, a socialite media personality, and her two bona fides—Nubya, a sought-after fashion designer, and I-Am, a spiritual herbalist—find themselves caught in the crossfire of a regional ganja war on the southern Caribbean island of Barbados.
Their journey spans across Barbadian gullies and ghettos, ultimately rolling into the limelight of Marley’s public world. Now she must question her loyalty to her beliefs, and with her squad, set out on a quest that will determine if there can be honor amongst thieves.
A lapse in judgment leads Judah, a strong, fiery soul, to move in the wrong direction. Now Judah is being hunted. His wife, Nubya, is discovered to be keeping secrets, and her best friend, Marley, seeks out an Obeah Man for protection, only to uncover a deeply buried truth.
I-Am and her trigger-ready brother, Shotta Forward, gear up to disrupt the fragile harmony of the streets in a thrilling mix that moves along a mystical timeline on a tropical paradise. Marley, I-Am, and Nubya inadvertently discover what they are made of and are left to determine if that makes them heroes or villains.
...Gray is a creative and talented storyteller amplifying Caribbean stories and spaces with a fresh voice.
