Too Many Secrets and Lies! Books that Transport You to Creepy Small-Town America

in Fiction by

On March 1, 2015 ABC introduced us to Ben Crawford (Ryan Phillippe) and his quaint neighborhood.

(It’s probably no surprise that show creator Lee Daniels was a huge fan of Dynasty growing up.) Empire brings all the drama, conflict and bling, minus the shoulder pads and big hair, with an updated twist. This sudsy treat is about an African-American family who owns one of America’s biggest (fictional, of course) recording enterprises. During Season 1 Cookie Lyon (Taraji P.
