I struggled to finish this one. The language was very stilted. "Your nephew was more recalcitrant than the most hardened gangbanger." "I hate to belabor the obvious." Who talks like this??

More fiction than romance, it's the first book by Mark Richard Zubro I've read.

Good gay mystery which starts with Tom and Scott's getting married. Too bad Tom finds a body in the bathroom at the reception.
This was one of the worst books I have ever read! Childish prose, ridiculous plot, I hated it!
