Good gay mystery in which Tom has an altercation with a student and accused of murder.

This was a basic murder mystery. Nothing earth shattering but an easy, 182 page read. I liked that it took place in Chicago and the south suburbs where I grew up. I may check to see if this authors previous books are at my local library.
Nicolas Mann
I really enjoyed this exciting mystery. The characters were well rounded and the dialog believable.
Cecil James
