Rock star Brent Hunter has a plan to get back to the top of the charts—until his jet vanishes en route to London. Four months later, a phone call convinces Austin Hunter that his brother is alive and in hiding. That, or it’s all an elaborate and deadly confidence game.

Austin turns to private detective Kirk MacGregor to find the truth about his brother. As Kirk follows a trail of dead-end leads in the most perplexing investigation of his career, a strong attraction simmers between him and Austin, despite the fact they’re both married.

Together they unearth a tragic family history of violence, pure greed, and a thirty-year-old fratricide as they take on the coldest killer since Hannibal Lecter. But deadly foes have nothing on the painful truths and even more painful losses Kirk and Austin must face... and none of that compares to confronting what they feel for each other.

My review

I really wanted to like this book, the blurb was good and set a really good scene but I just wasn't able to connect with it.I found it long winded and in truth.. boring.
The shame of it is that there is the bones of a really great plot but it's execution(and I mean that in both senses of the word!) was atrocious. I mean why do I need to know that Kirk pees like a race horse. The story also didn't flow, you would jump from one scene to another it felt forced as if conversations not finished or you has skipped a page. I will admit I gave up, I wanted to solve the puzzle but in the end just could not be bothered to carry on. I just didn't care enough about them in fact the only character I did care about was Kirk's dog!!!!

  2. The blurb sounded really good to me too, its a shame it was kind of clumsy in its telling

  3. OH I so dislike when I read the back cover of a book and get so excited to then be turned down.

  4. aw man, I'm with you. Based upon the intro, I wanted to love it. Sorry it didn't live up.

  5. Thanks for another great review. Sorry, you did not like the book.
