Shades of Retribution by Chandra Adams


This weekend, a movie based on a book with “Shades” in the title will be seen by moviegoers and fans of the novel waiting anxiously for the release. Before that happens, we’d like to reintroduce you to another title with the name Shades in the title; Shades of Retribution by Chandra Adams.

Here is the synopsis:

Meet Meena – an Oakland native, energetic, sassy, ambitious and beautiful – a young woman who knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. But when a broken heart threatens to make Meena pay, her friend and mentor, Basilah, steps in to comfort and console. Meena quickly learns that everything has its price, and soon faces one of her life’s greatest challenges – and the most deadly.

Travel the dark, foggy streets of the San Francisco Bay Area with Meena, Basilah, and their comrade Kenya as they avenge the past and lay claim to what they believe rightfully belongs to them.

The three main characters of the new suspense novel Shades of Retribution – Meena and Kenya, two up-and-coming college graduates trying to figure life out, and edgy, thirty-something Basilah – decide that it’s time to take matters into their own hands. Written with the San Francisco Bay Area as a backdrop, the three women take us on a journey to their world where just about anything goes – as long as it goes their way.

We have copies of Shades of Retribution available under Owners Books or you can request an order by sending an email to or
