First, this book is actually two novellas. I read the first one, and this review is only about the first one. It was a self-contained, complete story with a satisfying ending.Not quite what I was expecting, this turned out to be an urban fantasy murder mystery featuring a gay investigator and his partner. I liked the characters, they were well drawn and sometimes funny. There was NO sex at all, which to be honest was a refreshing change from so many of the m/m books, some of which are more sex than story. This was a good story.But not so great that I can mark "I really liked it" or higher. And to be honest, I am not all that interested in reading more in the series, at this time. So I am not going on to the second novella any time soon, and marking this book as read.
