A Dangerous Man

 
Michael Jones, a young gay artist and part-time prostitute, will do anything to stage his first exhibition. When he falls in love with rich financier, Jack Hutchinson, he seems set to achieve his goal. But as Michael becomes caught between the unforgiving territory of smoky-bar Hackney and the green-garden luxury of upper class London, the intense mindscape of a man obsessed with his dreams is revealed as he attempts to free himself from his past.
 
When a net of antagonistic relationships and inner battles encroaches upon him, the consequences of Michael's uncompromising pursuit emerge in tragedy, leaving him having to fight for all he holds dear, and in the only way he knows how.
 
 
Reviews:
 
“...brilliant...powerful as hell too... The protagonist, Michael...His obsession is huge, a swallowing emotion that sweeps out of your feet with every line you read... Another astonishing fact is how brilliantly his self-destructiveness is painted...Michael was brilliantly written...” – Thommie, MM Good Book Reviews

Maloney's Law

 
Shortlisted for the Harry Bowling Prize 2006 (for novels set in London) and the Royal Literary Fund Scheme, and longlisted for the Betty Bolingbroke-Kent Novel Award...
 
Paul Maloney, a small-time private investigator from London, reluctantly accepts a case from his married ex-lover, Dominic Allen. Before he knows it, Paul finds himself embroiled in the dark dealings of big business and the sordid world of international crime. The deeper he pushes, the closer he comes to losing everything he holds dear.
Can he solve the mystery and protect those he loves before it's too late?


Reviews:

"...Paul is an complex character. In fact it's difficult to put down in words all the various aspects of Paul's character...my favourite part of Paul's character were the little quirks given to him by the author...a breathtaking ride from start to finish...Once again Anne Brooke has produced a book which is high in emotional intensity and yet never strays into hysteria. Her descriptions of setting, character and situation all combine to make Maloney's Law into an unforgettable read. I highly recommend that you read this book...Grade: 'Excellent.'" -- Jenre, Well Read
 
"...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...I thank you, Anne Brooke, for writing this story." -- Ron Fritsch, Rainbow Book Reviews

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.
 
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...


Reviews:

"... good and well written...It focuses on religious obsession and how people twist and perverse faith into abnormality and loses the very point of it...you’ll like this one." -- Thommie, MM Good Book Reviews
