Overview

Sequel to Dirty Laundry

A Cole McGinnis Mystery


Sheila Pinelli needed to be taken out.


Former cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis never considered committing murder. But six months ago, when Jae-Min’s blood filled his hands and death came knocking at his lover’s door, killing Sheila Pinelli became a definite possibility.


While Sheila lurks in some hidden corner of Los Angeles, Jae and Cole share a bed, a home, and most of all, happiness. They’d survived Jae’s traditional Korean family disowning him and plan on building a new life—preferably one without the threat of Sheila’s return hanging over them.


Thanks to the Santa Monica police mistakenly releasing Sheila following a loitering arrest, Cole finally gets a lead on Sheila’s whereabouts. That is, until the trail goes crazy and he’s thrown into a tangle of drugs, exotic women, and more death. Regardless of the case going sideways, Cole is determined to find the woman he once loved as a sister and get her out of their lives once and for all.

Sheila Pinelli is back in Cole's life, and he wants to find her and make sure that she can't hurt anyone ever again. Due to a mistake, she is released without the officer knowing that she should have been detained. This takes Cole on a journey to find her, and also draws him into finding some missing women as well. Claudia comes back to work too, and I love her wisdom and style! Ending on a cliffhanger regarding Bobby, this is a well written and fast paced addition to the Cole McGinnis series. Definitely 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 wants Sheila Pinelli, wife of the man who shot him and Rick, dead. She shot Jae-Min and for that she needs to be gone. But Sheila gets released, even though there is a warrant out for her arrest and Cole somehow gets sucked into the world of Vietnamese transsexuals, which crosses paths with Sheila and Cole just does his best NOT to get shot, again. Book 4 in the series, I highly recommend you read them all in order, jumping in at this point, and you will miss a lot of the ongoing story line. But for me, the weakest so far. Why?? haven't a bloody clue, but I'm left feeling 4 stars and not the five I gave books one to three. Still a really good read. Things are beginning to come to a head, and clues as to why Ben shot Rick and Cole are beginning to surface. I'm fairly certain that my brain is going all about it wrong, and Ford will totally blow any idea I may have, out the water in book 6, Dirty Heart. For Ford has a knack of surprising me, just when I least expect it. Claudia is back, and I missed her! We also get more of Bobby and Ichiro, Cole's younger brother. Ichi and Bobby have taken over book 5 and I'm curious to see how that's written. Bokks one through four have been single person POV, in the first from Cole's POV. I'm just hoping we get BOTH Bobby and Ichi! 4 stars ps I'm losing Grey Tremblay's voice the more I'm READING and *insert wailing* I don't like it! I have several other audio books I need to get through before I can come back to these books. **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Kobo**

Jae is almost completely recovered from being shot, his family situation is as settled as it's likely to be, and he and Cole are settling into living together. Of course this is all way too tame to last, and Cole once again finds himself in the middle of a rapidly deteriorating situation, in danger from both new and old enemies. There is finally a glimpse into Ben's state of mind just before his death but, unless I've missed something, there are still a lot of questions to be answered. Add all this to quite a surprise at the end and you have another great installment in an excellent and exciting series.

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Rhys Ford opens up the fourth book in the Cole McGinnis series with another upbeat, hilarious and cheeky little scene that sets the tone for much of the book. DIRTY DEEDS is a fun ride all the way through, sparking here and there with its suspenseful twists and turns. In this book, Cole and Jae are dealing with the aftermath of Jae’s traditional Korean family disowning him as well as dealing with Sheila Pinelli, a previous threat that has Cole enraged all over again. It is imperative that Cole finds Sheila once again. However, in the process of doing that, Cole gets tangled in a deeper web that might be too much for even him. There is something to be said about Ford’s writing style. In this series, it’s always very fun and engaging. Cole’s narration just sticks to you until you’re fully invested in the story. I love the playfulness that exudes from this pages because I think it balances out the tension and the suspense that the author also likes to add in. Ford also pays great attention to the romance between Jae and Cole. Even four books in, I find that the romance is still fresh. I feel like the healing that occurs in both the characters is important to the series and makes them better characters at the end of it all. Ford does something quite interesting at the very end of this book. Though not quite a crazy cliffhanger, it will make readers beg for the next book in the series. She sets something up that will be interesting to watch for and I think it will change the whole dynamic of the books as well. DIRTY DEEDS combines the playful and the suspenseful into one wild ride. Expect the same crazy antics and tender moments between Cole and Jae for the ultimate romance between two endearing characters. *ARC provided by author”
