This odd couple encounters both personal and professional conflict as this suspenseful noir thriller races to a surprise conclusion that leaves Nick and Norm battling for their lives.
My Rating: 5 stars
The Gay Detective by Kenneth D. Michaels is an intriguing and exciting novel. Kenneth D. Michaels has brought to readers a gay detective that works for the police force and who also, has recently started his own talk show. This world is so realistic with every detail that readers wouldn’t be able to tell fiction from reality. What I love about this mystery, is that readers are not just told but shown what’s happening. Almost as if we were actually there sitting with the detective as he’s interviewing famous gay people or talking to his partner at some resturant. There are both personal and professional conflicts inside this suspenessful tale that keep readers turning the pages. The why and who dunnit are strong and readers will love the ending. Can a gay detective and his straight partner find the killer before it’s too late? Readers will have to read on to find out. Overall, I highly recommend The Gay Detective to readers everywhere.
