Trouble just seems to follow Nick, and ends up rather close to home when one of his neighbors is murdered. Nick usually shys away from anyone getting too close, but for some reason he feels the need to help his neighbour, to try and keep her and her daughter safe. When he meets the homicide detective in charge of the case, he seems rather floored that he finds the man totally attractive.
The homicide detective (Hank Axelrod) is going through his own troubles with his home life – but he is also attracted to Nick, but doesn’t know what to make of him, especially with him being so secretive. He won’t act on his being attracted to Nick, as he has a husband waiting at home for him – or does he??
As Hanks home life seems to go downhill, the one constant that seems to be in his life is Nick – but still neither are doing anything about their attraction, but both was very different reasons. Nick doesn’t want to put anyone else in danger, and although he knows his marriage is all but over, I think Hank still believes that somehow he can still have a marriage.
While all this is going on, Hank is also trying to solve his murder case, before anything else happens, but he seems to keep finding dead ends. Nick does try to help Hank, but I think sometimes their attraction to each other completely takes them over!! I won’t say what happens, as that will spoil the book for you, but the action is all there in this book. Although I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first two, I had to keep reading to find out what happens – and be prepared for some twists and turns in the plot, that you won’t be expecting.
If you like a book series, then I do recommend this series. All three books are hard to put down, and to me personally I would love another book to see how they are all doing, say five years later!!
