Despite falling in love with aloof manga artist Kai Tashiro, Homicide Detective Ryo Miller is determined to break the alibi Kai is supplying his murderous boyfriend--even if it means breaking Kai with it.
How did I miss this Josh Lanyon novella before? The mystery may not be as in depth or central to the story as many of Lanyon's mysteries but it's still there and enjoyable. Probably a little more suspense than actual mystery. Some might not care for the insta-love between Ryo and Kai but since they have had interaction at a club even if it's brief and only memorable for Ryo, I don't really think it falls into the insta-love category but even if it did, sometimes it happens and it fits for the scenario the characters find themselves in. A great little tale that I am glad to add to my Josh Lanyon shelf.
