Whoever said blood was thicker than water never stood in a pool of it.
Retiring from stealing priceless treasures seemed like a surefire way for Rook Stevens to stay on the right side of the law. The only cop in his life should have been his probably-boyfriend, Los Angeles Detective Dante Montoya, but that’s not how life—his life—is turning out. Instead, Rook ends up not only standing in a puddle of his cousin Harold’s blood but also being accused of Harold’s murder…and sleeping with Harold’s wife.
For Dante, loving the former thief means his once-normal life is now a sea of chaos, especially since Rook seems incapable of staying out of trouble—or keeping trouble from following him home. When Rook is tagged as a murder suspect by a narrow-focused West L.A. detective, Dante steps in to pull his lover out of the quagmire Rook’s landed in.
When the complicated investigation twists around on them, the dead begin to stack up, forcing the lovers to work together. Time isn’t on their side, and if they don’t find the killer before another murder, Dante will be visiting Rook in his prison cell—or at his grave.
You know it's a good story when...
You love it every bit as much the second time around as you did the first and that was the case with this audio book. I actually reviewed this book back in September when it was released and I loved it, so when the audio book narrated by Greg Tremblay was released there was zero doubt in my mind that I'd be doing this again. Not only did I enjoy it just as much but I can honestly say I'm already looking forward to listening to it again...right after I re-play the first book 'Murder and Mayhem'.
One of the things that I commented on in my original review was how much I enjoyed Greg Tremblay's narration of 'Murder and Mayhem' and that when I started reading 'Tramps and Thieves' in my head it was Greg Tremblay reading it to me...so you can safely assume that I was squealing with delight to enjoy just that...Greg Tremblay reading 'Tramps and Thieves' to me giving voice to the characters and bringing this wonderful story to life and if you want to see more from that review, here's the link...
Review: Tramps & Thieves
While I still adore the men of Sinners and it hasn't been that long since I revisited them on audio and Wow!!! That was just an awesome adventure and I'm definitely looking forward to having that same adventure with Cole and Jae when I listen to them on audio narrated by none other than the awesome Greg Tremblay...it's on my Christmas list. But without a doubt Rook and Dante have a solid hold on my heart and while I'm happy to revisit them again. What I'm really looking forward to is finding out what comes next for this pair.
If ever there were two men who are opposites it's Dante the cop and Rook the cat burglar...or more accurately retired cat burglar and I have to admit I wouldn't be adverse to finding out more about Rook's cousin Alex and his cop or maybe a story about the first time Rook met his grandfather and his cousin Alex. There's world of potential in this series and I'm I can't wait to see what Ms. Ford has planned for these unusual pairing and the people in their lives. E-book or audio book this series is simply a must for me and highly recommended.
An audiobook of 'Tramps and Thieves' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
