Sinners Series: Book Six
Miki St. John believed happy endings only existed in fairy tales until his life took a few unexpected turns… and now he’s found his own.
His best friend, Damien, is back from the dead, and their new band, Crossroads Gin, is soaring up the charts. Miki’s got a solid, loving partner named Kane Morgan—an Inspector with SFPD whose enormous Irish family has embraced him as one of their own—and his dog, Dude, at his side.
It’s a pity someone’s trying to kill him.
Old loyalties and even older grudges emerge from Chinatown’s murky, mysterious past, and Miki struggles to deal with his dead mother’s abandonment, her secrets, and her brutal murder while he’s hunted by an enigmatic killer who may have ties to her.
The case lands in Kane’s lap, and he and Miki are caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. When Miki is forced to face his personal demons and the horrors of his childhood, only one thing is certain: the rock star and his cop are determined to fight for their future and survive the evils lurking in Miki’s past.
Wow, this is one heck of a journey these men have taken together. Rhys Ford has found a way to make each book just as good, if not better than the last. This book, I have to say, in my opinion, is the best. And the most drama filled. Even though each book that came before this one was also filled with drama as well, this one is definitely the one that I feel answered all the questions that anyone could have had about Miki, Damien, Kane, and every other Morgan and member of the band that Miki and Damien are a part of.
There has always been a huge question mark over who Miki is. Or at least as far as who was Miki’s birth family is and how he ended up where he did. When Miki’s past comes knocking at his door there are so many questions that need to be answered and so many things that need to be figured out before it is too late.
Someone is out to take out Miki and if Kane and Kel and all the other Morgan’s do not figure out who it is and how the killer is connected to Miki and his past, it may end up being too late to save Miki and anyone who is around him.
The more Kane learns the more the danger picks up for Miki. Miki is hell bent on not knowing who his birth parents were and the reason they abandoned him at an early age but now that someone from his past is out to get him, Miki really has no choice but find out who they were and what led them to leaving him on his own.
The question is, is Miki strong enough to handle what he learns? Can Kane and Kel figure out who it is trying to murder Miki and why?
This was such an incredible read. All of the books in this series hav been. I cannot believe everything that Miki has been through and that he is still somewhat sane. This whole series is definitely worth the read. There is not only a love story here but there is so much more. There is mystery. There is the love of family, both by blood and by want. There is danger. There is friendship. There is so much more. You just have to read it to get the full affect. Definitely a book I would recommend to others.
