Loving Kim Jae-Min isn’t always easy: Jae is gun-shy about being openly homosexual. Ex-cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis doesn’t know any other way to be. Still, he understands where Jae is coming from. Traditional Korean men aren’t gay—at least not usually where people can see them.
But Cole can’t spend too much time unraveling his boyfriend’s issues. He has a job to do. When a singer named Scarlet asks him to help find Park Dae-Hoon, a gay Korean man who disappeared nearly two decades ago, Cole finds himself submerged in the tangled world of rich Korean families, where obligation and politics mean sacrificing happiness to preserve corporate empires. Soon the bodies start piling up without rhyme or reason. With every step Cole takes toward locating Park Dae-Hoon, another person meets their demise—and someone Cole loves could be next on the murderer’s list.
Rhys Ford brings us the second installment in Cole McGinnis PI books.
If it’s going to happen it happens to Cole. These books are entertaining. In this book Cole and Jae are still working on their relationship. Jae still hasn’t come out to his family.
Bobby was back in this story, I love how he’s always their for Cole.
Cole is once again looking into a missing Korean. Dae-Hoon. Wow, their all related and sleeping with each other, but nobody admits to being gay. And everybody is shooting everybody and Cole and Jae always seem to be in the middle of it all.
I love the relationship that Is still developing between Cole and Jae. Cole is offering help to Jae. I love Jae’s reply to Cole.
(Cole)“Yeah, of course.” I checked my watch. “I’ve just got to go through some stuff Scarlet sent over and return some calls, but after that, I’m all yours.”
(Jae) “You were mine before I called.”
These books always have a touch of humor and mystery to them. Very enjoyable reads.
