Title: Murder and Mayhem
Author: Rhys Ford
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Characters: Dante and Rook
To clear his name of a murder charge, former thief Rook Stevens must turn to the last man he’d
expect to help him—Detective Dante Montoya.
Dead women tell no tales.
Former cat burglar Rook Stevens stole many a priceless thing in the
past, but he’s never been accused of taking a life—until now. It was
one thing to find a former associate inside Potter’s Field, his pop
culture memorabilia shop, but quite another to stumble across her
Detective Dante Montoya thought he’d never see Rook Stevens
again—not after his former partner falsified evidence to entrap the
jewelry thief and Stevens walked off scot-‐free. So when he tackled a
fleeing murder suspect, Dante was shocked to discover the blood-‐
covered man was none other than the thief he’d fought to put in
prison and who still makes his blood sing.
Rook is determined to shake loose the murder charge against him, even if it means putting distance
between him and the rugged Cuban-‐Mexican detective who brought him down. If one dead con artist
wasn’t bad enough, others soon follow, and as the bodies pile up around Rook’s feet, he’s forced to
reach out to the last man he’d expect to believe in his innocence—and the only man who’s ever
gotten under Rook’s skin.
Rhys Ford has done it again!
She has written a story that hooked me from the first page. Murder and Mayhem has a great plot and of course two hot and sexy men. I love how Dante is open and honest with the men he works with. I really appreciated how the angst in this story had NOTHING to do with being gay. Now that was a refreshing storyline!
Rook doesn’t trust most people so when dead bodies start showing up around him, the one person he needs to help him is Dante, the cop who wants to put him away. I loved how these two men worked together and in the end became a memorable, amazing couple. The sparks fly when these two men meet and never die down throughout the entire story. I LOVED it!
I adored every minute I spent reading Murder and Mayhem and I highly recommend it. You will love Dante and Rook…their love is explosive with intensity and passion!
