Publisher's Summary

There's a dead man in Miki St. John's vintage Pontiac GTO, and he has no idea how it got there.
After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears death isn't done with him yet.
Kane Morgan, the SFPD inspector renting space in the art co-op next door, initially suspects Miki had a hand in the man's murder, but Kane soon realizes Miki is as much a victim as the man splattered inside the GTO. As the murderer's body count rises, the attraction between Miki and Kane heats up. Neither man knows if they can make a relationship work, but despite Miki's emotional damage, Kane is determined to teach him how to love and be loved - provided, of course, Kane can catch the killer before Miki becomes the murderer's final victim.

Loved this book

This was a great rendition of Rhys Ford's first Sinner's Gin novel. The characters came through beautifully and meshed with the sense of them I had in my head from reading the books. The crime element was well imagined and I enjoyed the interaction between the Morgan clan who were in the police. Miki has a dry wit that Tristan teally brought to life and I will definitely be listening to this again.

Challenging story, fast narration

Sinners Gin was a really challenging story, especially with the dark subject matter being of Miki being a victim of sexual abuse as a child. There were a lot of things about the way this was handled that made me distinctly uncomfortable though. The story as a whole was dark, gritty and suspenseful. Despite my reservations with the subject matter, it was well on the way to being a five star book, but then we got to the first sex scene and two stars were blown away. Rhys Ford is a good writer but MY GOD, the sex scenes were interminable. Therefore, the story suffered badly from gratuitous sex. The scenes were over descriptive, not necessarily even erotic and went on far too long. There was so much head hopping when they made love that I had no idea who was doing what to whom. If i'd have been reading this book, not listening, I'd have done a lot of skimming on the sex scenes.

The audio narrator had a good mix of accents, but my one issue with him was that he spoke too fast. It was hard to keep up with the narrative sometimes.

Also, just a final observation. Kane Morgan and his brothers were from an Irish family. His parents moved to the US from Ireland, and Kane and his brothers were all US born. So.... why did they have Irish accents?

Anyway, this is a good listen... the cliffhanger was intriguing so I will continue with this series.
