It wants to bring you great and terrible things …

Russell Washington is going to make himself a better man, erase all the flaws—even if he has to sacrifice his wife and child to do it.

Garrett Kale is a man made confident. Sharp and passionate, he is on the brink of embracing true love.

Russell and Garrett. Neither man is who he seems.

Russell and Garrett. Everything they want looms just ahead, every dark memory left behind to rot. But a crack between them threatens to expose an unspeakable deception and unleash a terror that will shatter them both.


A puzzle box of psychological destruction.

Formats: Novel is available in softback or ebook.



“Marvin Brown’s debut novel Covet is a lean, complex jigsaw of a thriller, a fast-paced, contemporary parable on the psychology of race, the nature of identity and the brutal powers of memory. You will not soon forget Russell Washington and Garrett Kale, nor the very talented Marvin Brown. I was hooked on the very first page.”

— Richard Montanari, author of The Violet Hour and Kiss of Evil
