It looks like someone is out to get Reno Police Detective Cristian Flesh. The only problem is that he can’t figure out who or why. Throw in his sexy straight attorney and things just keep going from bad to worse.

If you like watching crime dramas on TV, you will love In the Flesh by Ethan Stone. Even though the mystery aspect of the story is predicable, the author is still able to keep the readers wondering just how much more could go wrong for the young detective. It is the romance side of the story that will really hold the reader’s attention. It is clear, from the beginning, that there is some attraction between Flesh and Colby, his attorney. However, the author does such a good job keeping Flesh wondering about Colby’s sexual orientation that even I was beginning to wonder if the man was straight.

There are many complications that the two must face and straighten out, the least of which are the murder charges against Flesh. While the story ends on a happy note, for me, there were still some unanswered questions, not about the case which the author wraps up nicely, but about the two men. Hopefully, we will see these two again soon and all my questions will be answered.
