Can he solve the mystery and protect those he loves before it's too late?
by Anne Brooke is a gay romance and mystery. It's also a dark, deep and poetic gay romance and mystery. I confess I love novels written in the first person and present tense, but I also know it's quite difficult to write them well. But not, apparently, for Brooke. Her Maloney's Law
is exceptionally well-written." [From a review at Rainbow Reviews]
"Once you get into this book it's impossible to put it down. Every time you think you have it figured out, it proves you wrong. In other words it's the perfect detective book! The characters were very strong and the backstory couldn't have been better." [From a review at Top2Bottom Reviews]Get your copy for half price here!The Bones of Summer:
The sequel to Maloney's Law, garnering third place in the inaugural 2009 Rainbow Mystery Fiction Awards.
When Craig Robertson’s religious fanatic father disappears, Craig is forced to return to the home he left behind after an underage affair in order to look for answers. He takes with him his new lover, private investigator Paul Maloney, who is more than willing to help solve the mystery.
During his initial search, Craig locates items that belonged to Michael, his lover in that long-ago ill-fated affair, and soon discovers that Michael has disappeared as well. The search becomes an investigation into Craig’s past, and, because of distressing gaps in his memory, he’s terrified of the truths he might find.
Reviews:The Bones of Summer
As Craig’s obsession with uncovering clues grows, however, his fragile relationship with Paul begins to disintegrate. Haunted and stalked, Craig has to face down the horror of his memories if he wants to have any hope of a future at all...
by Anne Brooke is an exceptionally well written and thrilling mystery novel. This novel grabbed a hold of me almost immediately and would not let go. I found myself reading until the early morning hours. [From a review at Romance Junkies Reviews]
"Well, Anne Brooke has done it to me again. I read the first book in the series (Maloney's Law
) where Paul Maloney, a broken man, was the main character. At the end of the book, he met Craig Robertson and even though they didn't end up together, they established a connection. This is Craig's story. And what a story it is." [From a review at Mrs Condit Reviews]Get your copy for half price here!
