Publisher's Summary

A serial killer is targeting gay men, preying on them in popular bars and parks. Assigned to the case, rookie cop Pat St. James feels all too close to the victims. He's gay and firmly in the closet at work. Pat and his fellow cop, Hank, are hanging out in bars, trying to get a lead on the killer.
At the same time, Pat's looking for Mr. Right - juggling three men, hoping he'll find the perfect match for himself. He picked up Bill at a bar; Dean's a longtime friend. And in yet another ironic twist, his partner, Hank, is also gay and on the list of possible beaus.
As the killer continues to rampage, strangling and raping his victims, Pat has to focus on his work and hope that his personal life survives the stress. But when his hopes and dreams for happiness overlap with the investigation, Pat may be headed for big trouble.

Worth It

An intriguing storyline, perfect specimen male characters (with perfect opportunities to show it off) and a passable job of the naration, makes this a great addition to any LGBT library that you could enthusiastically listen to again and again.

Interesting crime plot line but weak characters



Story: The book has some compelling elements to the story, a newly recruited gay cop wanting to prove himself, and a string of murders to solve. Unfortunately the characters didn't capture me, with the main characters not being consistent, and making some really silly decisions. For example, watching a suspect enter bar, radio for backup, then head in on your own right after the suspect who immediately gets spooked and runs before backup arrives, leading to a rather nasty situation later on. To top it off, the main character then thinks back over the night and can't think of anything he could of done better....



There are some great bits to this story, but feels like poorly written story to sit around some sex scenes.



Audio/Narration

The audio quality on this recording isn't great. I got used to it, but it just feels like it wasn't recorded using decent equipment and microphone.



The narration isn't great, no effort is put in to giving each character their down voice/accent. As a result some scenes are a little confusing as to who is saying what. A bit of effort to convey characters would have been nice. The sentences didn't always sit well together, as if the narrator didn't know what was coming next himself.



Verdict: A nice tale that could have been so much more.
