A Cole McGinnis Mystery Cole Kenjiro McGinnis, ex-cop and PI, is trying to get over the shooting death of his lover when a supposedly routine investigation lands in his lap. Investigating the apparent suicide of a prominent Korean businessman's son proves to be anything but ordinary, especially when it introduces Cole to the dead man's handsome cousin, Kim Jae-Min. Jae-Min's cousin had a dirty little secret, the kind that Cole has been familiar with all his life and that Jae-Min is still hiding from his family. The investigation leads Cole from tasteful mansions to seedy lover's trysts to Dirty Kiss, the place where the rich and discreet go to indulge in desires their traditional-minded families would rather know nothing about. It also leads Cole McGinnis into Jae-Min's arms, and that could be a problem. Jae-Min's cousin's death is looking less and less like a suicide, and Jae-Min is looking more and more like a target. Cole has already lost one lover to violenceâhe's not about to lose Jae-Min too.… (lisätietoja)

I enjoyed the mystery up to the part where we are told who did it (that came so out of the left field it wasn't even funny). The writing was too descriptive for me (it managed to put me to sleep several times) and I was sometimes lost in who said what. There were some minor discrepancies in the plot (like, the unpleasant housekeeper/maid the MC met at one house was later found dead in another house, as if she worked there from the beginning).
All in all, I'm glad I gave the book a chance, but it's not for me. ( )

A great suspense. ( )

Good story with well-developed characters and a well-constructed suspense plot. I read it quickly and with a real enjoyment.

As often with Rhys Ford, we have some fascinating and complicated characters here. Cole is a private investigator who still suffers from the loss of his lover Rick three years ago. Jae-Min is a young boy with a complicated past, limited by Korean culture and morality in which he was raised and in which he tries to find his place. For these or other reasons, none of them is really interested in the new relationship that is forming between them anyway. They are both well-constructed three-dimensional characters with a complex personality. Definitely one of the strong points of this book.

Also, we are dealing here with homophobia. Come out in few different ways. Both, Cole and Jae-Min, are unacceptable to their families because of their sexuality. Cole has completely lost contact with his father, stepmother and step sisters. Jae-Min is humiliated and insulted by his aunt and cousins. Finally, we have a brother of Cole who only accepts his younger brother to a certain extent and runs away from the problem. I hope that in the next books in this series Cole and Jae-Min will manage to find their place among these complicated relationships with the family.

The romance between them is more lust at first sight than love. And none of them talks about love so far, although there are some allusions to the fact that it is about something much deeper and more serious than just sex. This part is fine. Cole and Jae-Min make an interesting couple with complex dynamics. Especially since their relationship is influenced by Cole's past and Korean culture.

Finally, suspense. I would say it is the best part of this book, but the other elements are very good too. The criminal case Cole tries to solve is attention-grabbing and complicated. And its solution is not obvious, although to be honest I suspected this person. But it more that I didn't exclude this person from the list of suspects than I thought this was the one. Either way, it was a very good crime story. Although I think Cole does not always follow the logic and sometimes he puts himself in danger unnecessarily. He should have turned to the police when he had the opportunity.

This is a good start to the series and I will definitely read more books. It will be nice to meet Cole and Jae-Min again. ( )

It started passably well, a little over the top maybe, but charming enough and with an interesting mystery set in an unusual background. Then one thing added to another and it was either too little or too much.

Too little character and relationship development.
Jae’s a pretty Korean boy with a very Korean sense of family and duty and his only role seems to be a magnet to Cole’s insta-lust, insta-love, insta-need-to-protect-him and insta-everything-else you could possibly think of.
I have no idea why they think they’re in love with each other, since they don’t talk about anything aside from one brief conversation about Cole’s dead lover, they just have sex.
And let’s talk about the sex. It’s bad enough that Cole doesn’t seem able to be in the same room with Jae without thinking about having sex with him.
I’m not kidding. He looks in Jae’s eyes and he immediately thinks about how much he wants Jae under him (his words, not mine) and the same goes for every time Jae touches him or smiles or...breathes. That’s the extent of their dynamic: Jae breathes and Cole wants him.
That would’ve been bad enough, like I said, but I lost any hope when the first sex scene came around. The description was painful to read, I don’t know how else to call it. And there was absolutely no chemistry or connection between them. In or out of bed.

Too many dead bodies and explosions, with houses and cars blown up and a car collision thrown in for good measure.
The MCs take turns going in and out of the hospital and the mystery plot is reduced to a couple of interviews with witnesses and suspects, when Cole finds the time between finding dead bodies, surviving explosions and having sex. At the end the murderer is revealed out of nowhere and not even in the good, I’d-never-thought-it kind of out of nowhere, but in the are-you-kidding-me kind of out of nowhere.

To end on a positive note: I liked the cat. That’s something, right? ( )
