A Cole McGinnis Mystery

Sequel to Dirty Secret

For ex-cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis, each day brings a new challenge. Too bad most of them involve pain and death. Claudia, his office manager and surrogate mother, is still recovering from a gunshot, and Cole's closeted boyfriend, Kim Jae-Min, suddenly finds his teenaged sister dumped in his lap. Meanwhile, Cole has his own sibling problems-most notably, a mysterious half brother from Japan whom his older brother, Mike, is determined they welcome with open arms.

As if his own personal dramas weren't enough, Cole is approached by Madame Sun, a fortune-teller whose clients have been dying at an alarming rate. Convinced someone is after her customers, she wants the matter investigated, but the police think she's imagining things. Hoping to put Sun's mind at ease, Cole takes the case and finds himself plunged into a Gordian knot of lies and betrayal where no one is who they are supposed to be and Death seems to be the only card in Madame Sun's deck.

We are back in the thick of Cole McGinnis being a very dangerous person to be around. Everyone who gets close to him gets shot, and he usually ends up with pieces of their blood, bone and brain in his mouth. This time, there is a mystery surrounding a Korean fortune-teller and her clients, who are being killed of. I'll be honest, this confused me and I'm still not sure about the WHY of what happened. Very well written, and fast paced with enough action to please everyone. This continues the series and the relationship between Cole and Jae-Min. Definitely to be read as part of the series and not standalone! Recommended. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Cole is facing the aftermath of Claudia's shooting, the finding out he has a brother from the mother he though died when he was born, and he is still waiting for Jae-Min to say what Cole longs to hear. But trouble cannot leave Cole alone, and he is tasked with finding who is killing Madame Sun's clients, and finding a little girl's stolen dog. I adore Rhys Ford, I really do. And I love Cole McGinnis and Jae-Min just as much as I loved the Sinners guys. But this one made me cry!*insert wailing sound* I really really felt for Cole in this one, when he accidentally outs Jae to his sister, and all that follows. When he meets Ichi for the first time, just when he was not expecting it. When he gets some of Claudia's grand kids to man the phones in his office, and when Claudia arrives back. The plot of the fortune teller's murdered clients kept me on my toes, and I couldn't see whodunnit til the book told me so. Always a good thing. The little girl's missing dog?? Well, only Cole can end up rescuing a dog and landing himself in the middle of a drugs bust! I have this in audio to listen to, when I catch up, and I look forward to that with immense pleasure. I know I'm not hearing the voices correctly, and I can't wait to see what Greg Tremblay does with Ichi's voice. The difference between the Korean and Japanese accents are described here, and I can't wait to hear how that comes over. 5 full and shiny stars. **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**
