Mark Richard Zubro writes two strong, gay-themed mystery series--one featuring police detective Paul Turner and another about professional baseball player Scott Carpenter and his teacher companion, Tom Mason. As this book in the Tom and Scott series proves, Zubro has the enviable ability to create and sustain characters defined by much more than their sexuality. Just after ...more

Tom and Scott head to Scott's hometown to see his sick father. The South is not welcoming to their relationship. While there someone is killed and Tom is suspected. Tom works to clear his name all the while fighting bigots, a lunatic, and hatred from some of Scott's family. This author captures the bigotry and Southern mannerisms to a tee. I like this story can't wait to read the next story in the series.

3.5 stars. Good gay mystery in which Tom and Scott go to rural Georgia after Scott's dad has a heart attack. They are not at all prepared for the bigotry and hatred they encounter.

I picked this book up because a friend said it was good and ya gotta love a book by a white man that takes its title from a Maya Angelou quote. But it's really not good. The word choice is forced and all of the characters are two dimensional, including the two main ones. In the introduction the author thanks all of the people he spoke to about life in the South, but none of it feels real.

Disliked intensely. Stereotypes of racist, homophobic, Neanderthal southerners don't set well with me. I may be a Yankee, but my Mama is from the South, and I found much of this offensive (although I found their attitude toward Tom and Scott offensive also).

I always new I didn't want to visit rural Georgia. This was an entertaining book, and as with all of his books, I certainly didn't know who committed the crime until the end.

An exciting story. A view of Scott's family we didn't see before.
