The Injustice of Being by Carol Lynne
Sometimes justice is worth risking everything for.
After a hung jury results in a mistrial for alleged rapist, Paul "Jigger" Robinson, victim Eric Kloiber and Will James, the detective in charge of the case, must come to terms with the possibility that Jigger may well get away with his crimes.
When Will sees the despair plaguing Eric, he becomes determined to leave no stone unturned in his search for more evidence against Jigger. In the midst of his ongoing investigation, Will begins to feel protective towards Eric and soon the two embark on a risky affair.
Despite his new feelings for the hunky detective, Eric can't stop his obsession with making Jigger pay for what he's done. If the justice system won't help, Eric vows to take Jigger down on his own, even if it means putting himself in danger. When Eric's pursuit of vengeance gets in the way of Will's investigation, the two must come to an agreement or risk losing everything, including their relationship.
