[ Review Posted: Nov 10, 2014 ] - See all my reviews
Henry and Mac become entangled in mystery and murder, but that's not as dangerous as their romance.

This is the second story in the series, and the first one, The Two Gentlemen of Altona, definitely needs to be read first. Henry and Mac pick the action right back up from the first story, and we get to learn so much more about both of them. Henry had a traumatic childhood with his drug-addicted mother. The tragedy that befell his sister is what drives him to keep conning. Mac finds himself under investigation by the Office of Professional Responsibility. We learn more about his real friends and his family life. Henry and Mac clicked on such a base level, and I truly believed that they were meant to be together. I enjoyed watching them spend more time together.

The plot focused on sinister activities taking place at a local care home. Henry infiltrates the home dressed as a woman and finds himself in the middle of the nightmare and in desperate need of Mac's help. Seeing Henry dressed as a woman worked for both Mac and Henry and certainly lead to some interesting sex scenes.

Although Henry and Mac make some progress on their relationship, we aren't anywhere close to seeing a happy ending. However, there's definitely a light at the end of the tunnel.

An exciting continuation of the adventures of Henry and Mac.
