I went into this book not entirely sure what to expect. I don't usually read m/m books but I must admit that although there was very little romance in this book, I do believe their relationship enhanced the plot. I felt quite sick with the way David was treated because of his sexuality, it's scary to think that people are still ostracized and beaten for it in this day and age. I loved the development of their relationship, five years in and they still find each other worth fighting for. I really enjoyed the mystery portion of the plot, I was drawn in very early and I loved all the twists and misdirections thrown in to confuse and put you off the trail. It was nice seeing a PI willing to get his hands dirty and doing the more old fashioned form of investigation work. Lately I've been seeing a lot of computer based sleuthing in books but I prefer the face to face interrogations, even if you do go in circles as more secrets are unravelled. Over all this was an enjoyable book and I will be continuing with the series, I would recommend it to anyone who loves a decent mystery.
