Lawyer Tom Jarrell has set up shop with PI Ronnie Grisham, his best friend and lover. They’re on the cusp of moving in together, a risky proposition in 194 7 Daytona Beach. Tom and Ronnie are too happy to think too much about what people will say.
There’s a new murder case in town. In the first book, while defending his client Howie Kirkpartrick, Tom pulled a Perry Mason and showed that one of the witnesses was the real killer. Now the witness is the defendant. Tom’s not the defense lawyer, he’s just presenting an affidavit by the defendant’s wife. Sounds easy enough.
There’s an undercurrent that Tom can feel but can’t decipher. His former boss wants to hire him back. The judge seems to overreach and pushes Tom into action. Tom’s instincts are good but he scrambles to keep up. Ronnie is loyal and protective and has good instincts of his own.
The supporting characters are filled out more. In particular, Marveen learns that Tom and Ronnie are in love. She accepts it even if she doesn’t understand it.
While the book is a complete story, it is also part of a series. Characters grow, plots develop and the reader is left eagerly anticipating the next book.
