by Ruth Purnell-Wyatt

Sheba and Leah are embroiled in a supernatural conflict because Sheba is jealous of Leah's man and their affluent status in Chicago's black society. Both women are strong-willed intellectuals, clutching for wealth and prestige. Sheba is determined to have everything Leah has, including her man. In their religious world, the black church, supernatural conflicts are common, however, Sheba, a spiritualist, concludes that decency and fair play are to be damned. She is absolutely green with envy and hates Leah with a passion when she sees that Leah is a college graduate with a lucrative lifestyle.

When the story begins Leah is a happy newlywed who is a successful stock broker in need of some spiritual guidance for a few minor problems she is experiencing. Leah joins Sheba's Bible study group. Immediately, Sheba sees Leah's affluence and wants to use her to attain the riches she has craved all of her life. Leah a willful, high achiever is clueless and finds herself in a pickle as she becomes entangled in a web of sorcery at Sheba's hands. That is, until Sheba over-reaches and becomes an outcast with her own devils, and Leah's own true grit, and spirit guides, prophetic dreams, set Leah free.

This fiction is Romance/Paranormal novel that tells a tale of passion, suspense, and mystery, set in Chicago during the 1970s. Deadly Deceit is a captivating tale designed to taunt the senses.
