Sam Young is a PI whose life is about to change, due to a couple of interesting cases and a young waiter running from an ex.  The problem is that Sam’s not sure if he’s ready for all the changes. 

Forbidden Fruit is a crime story by Edward Kendrick and fans of this genre are sure to enjoy it.  While the story is a contemporary one, taking place in current day New Orleans, Sam almost has a Sam Spade type feel to him.  I love the way this character is written and that the author wrote the story from Sam’s point of view, which allows the reader to get the full impact of his attitude.  Jamie is the perfect counterpart for Sam.  While the young man has had a rough few years, there is a gentleness about him that balances out Sam’s roughness.  I also liked the way Jamie was able to help Sam and it was easy to see where the author was taking them.  It is easy to imagine this story as the first of a series and I hope the author plans on bring these two back again.   

This is my first story by this author and Forbidden Fruit has left me wanting more.  If you are looking for a new author to try then I suggest giving this story a chance.
