Murder is in the eye of the beholder. In this M/M nod to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window, Heston is a writer who spends most of his life alone in his own little world. One spring day he pulls up his window shades and sees more than he ever imagined.

The gorgeous and younger Icarus wants Heston to commit to love. To prove himself, he ends up trying to solve a murder without either of them becoming the next victim. A peek into a stranger’s life can turn from sexy to deadly in the blink of an eye. What you see isn’t always what you get.

OMG. Matt Converse was trying for Alfred Hitchcock and he succeeded in a very big way! I was nervously flipping pages, thanking someone up there that the story was somewhat short because I couldn’t wait to know what happened!!

As much as I want to ruin this entire review by saying EVERYTHING that happened, you know I won’t do it…

I will give you this:

–There was a main character and his love interest
–There was window watching
–There were murders
–There were creepy voices
–There was mystery and intrigue in spades
–There was talk of an unreliable narrator
–Just when I thought I knew, I realized I had no idea
–There was the tiniest bit of romance, but it was the cutest thing in the entire world and so worth it.

Gah. Go ahead and read this if you love biting your nails. I literally felt like I was in the middle of an episode of a Hitchcock mystery. It was wonderfully played out and exceptionally done. Bravo, Mr. Converse.

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after.
