Paul Turner is a Chicago Police homicide detective. He's also a widower, a father of two teen-aged boys, and gay man who never seems to have enough time to spend with the man he loves...

Rating : 3.8/5.0 - This was a good short read, story was engaging from the start characters were believable even if not the most memorable (although the MC work partner is hilarious their work relationship is like a character in itself) .

On another note that is sure to impact his family, Rose Talucci admits to Paul that she has cancer and mig ...more

I was, however, a bit troubled by how much the sex lives of the characters played into the story line. I suppose a more thoughtful treatment of the gay lifestyle is more difficult to write. But the author does well in giving us a win ...more
Fast paced story

This is a fun little mystery.

I like that it presents the gay characters as people.

While my first read in this series it will not be my last.
