    Suspense thriller

    It was a great read. Suspenseful, great characters. Although I enjoyed reading the book, I guess the problem I have with female writers for me as a gay man is they tend to portray characters acting VERY female at times I mean two butch police officers angrily slapping one another in the face. Both main characters seemed very bipolar. After about the second pair of mood swings I was prepared to give up. I'm glad I didn't. Overall enjoyed the story

    Inferno!

    WOW! First I have to say I LOVED the length, especially when I fall in love with the characters (which I always do with Scarlet's books) it just allows me to spend more time with them. I loved Zack and Dante, wanted to slap Dante at times (in a good way) but at the same time hug him for the pain he had suffered when he was a boy. Zack is just a great character, devoted cop, so much, he will do anything to put the criminals away... and he wears his heart on his sleeve... really fell in love with him! Scarlet has brought us yet another great book, and I highly suggest it, along with all her others!

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book


    The main premise of this story is that a closeted gay cop develops a physical attraction to the prime suspect in a murder investigation. While Zack detests the man and wants to see him locked up for the crime, at the same time he lusts after him and jumps at every chance to be near him. The book goes into wonderful detail with the turmoil Zack feels – the lust, the disgust, the jealousy – and how he comes to terms with his closeted status as a police detective.

    Dante owns the nightclub where the murders occur and he is connected to each one through sex, making him the prime suspect. He appears cold and unfeeling, showing no emotion when a man he’s had sex with is murdered just hours later. He is an emotionally wounded man, his past eating at him, making him feel worthless and unworthy of being loved. This is such a common feeling for adults of child sexual abuse that I always wonder at the characters who have become strong and invincible, overcoming their past with a blink of the eye and never looking back. I admire Blackwell for giving me a wounded man, one who covers his pain with unemotional one-night stands and a cold-hearted attitude.

    There are times, however, when both men act like girls. For the most part they’re just men but every once in a while some estrogen pokes through and someone whines or reaches out and slaps a face. I found that a little annoying. However, I can at least say that these were not macho, testosterone overloaded characters. On the whole, they were average men trying to get through their respective days without messing up too badly. (They kind of fail that one.)

    The mystery aspect of the book was very appealing to me. When I read a mystery I don’t tend to think too hard about the suspects. (Did Suspect A do it? No, I bet it was Suspect B!) I’d rather not put the clues together in my head but instead just enjoy the book for what it is – an interesting mystery that gets solved by the end of the book. And this mystery was solved quite satisfactorily – no red herrings and no last minute suspects thrown in. I found <i>Inferno</i>
    an entertaining book.


    Favorite Quote: With no pockets he’d had no choice but to accompany y the ensemble with a gold bag for his keys, his money and his makeup. Now he knew how women felt; it was tiresome.
