I enjoyed this mystery set in 1940s Los Angeles. Nathan Doyle, a journalist recently home from the war, meets homicide detective Matthew Spain literally over a body. Given that Nathan knew the victim, and that he definitely has something to hide, he has a strong motive to help find the murderer before he is either accused of the crime and/or has his own secrets uncovered.

The strong attraction between Nathan and Matthew (a source of unease to both) keeps things interesting, and while I found myself more caught up in their developing relationship than in the mystery (there was no emotional connection to make me care much about the unlikable victim or who killed him), it was a neat puzzle. I’d like to see more mysteries with these characters.
