Brad and Duncan McKinley had gone to visit their parents, to tell their father both of them are gay, but their confessions would never be spoken to their bigoted father, given that Brad and Duncan found their parents brutally murdered inside their Pasadena home. 

He Ain't Heavy is a gripping tale profiling the mind of a deranged killer, the image of a conservative persona disguising the perverted minds of men obsessed with money, dirty cops as well as a miscarriage of justice by the penal system. In the pursuit of more wealth, out of control greed promotes the actions of fraud, embezzlement, bribery as well as being accomplices to murder. In the warped mentality of corrupted men, anyone obstructing their goals will be eliminated without consideration or remorse. With their parents’ death, life long family secrets kept from Duncan and Brad are revealed.  

Brad and Duncan become innocent prey to those seeking access to the ill-gotten gains of their father. Although they were raised in a wealthy household, Brad and Duncan are not tainted by the influence of money. They established a publishing company in San Diego, independent of their father’s investments. Brad and Duncan have a special bond of love, respect as well as being emotionally caring by suppressing their true feelings from each other. Both are considerate men with an abundance of integrity.

Reading J.P. Bowie’s exceptionally clever excerpt, my first impression is that this is a sinister tale and it is with heart stopping action, psycho killers and mayhem. However, interwoven into this nail biting thriller are extraordinary intimate scenes in glorious detail.  He Ain't Heavy is a thoroughly enjoyable happy ever after murder mystery romance.
