She has a good job, a comfortable home, and a wonderful husband and daughter. But tough times lie ahead. Out of the blue, Annette begins receiving anonymous hate mail and threatening phone calls.

"GOD DON'T PLAY is the latest in Mary Monroe's "God Don't" series. Trouble lands at the feet of debt collector Annette Goode just when she thinks her life can't get any better. This highly stylized novel about a contemporary African-American woman grabs our attention with its emotional complexity and cleverly drawn characters. But the reason this production is such a treasure comes down to one person--Patricia R. Floyd. She gives each character a distinctive voice and a palpable personality. The conversations between the middle-aged heroine and her best friend's 16-year-old daughter about sex are by themselves worth the cost of the recording. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
