Reckoning: The Quarter Boys (Volume 5). Redmann and Greg Herren, two other authors who have written gay mystery series set in that city. But that is a minor point to a surprisingly solid effort.

Percival Constantine. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7.  LUTHER CROSS Part 1. The doorbell echoed through the large-ceilinged mansion, and a middle-aged maid came through the foyer. She turned the locks and pulled open the heavy door. Standing on the porch in the rain was a tall, broad-shouldered man in a black trench coat and matching fedora.

David Halberstam, with his signature precision and absorbing narrative style, traces this power shift by delving into the boardrooms and onto the factory floors of the America’s Ford Motor Company and Japan’s Nissan. Different in every way-from their reactions to labor problems to their philosophies and leadership styles-the two companies stand as singular testaments to the challenges brought by the rise of the global economy.

After two years of near-constant upheaval in their professional and personal lives, private investigators Michel Doucette and Alexandra “Sassy” Jones have finally found some peace. For Michel, in particular, everything is near-idyllic, as he and his boyfriend, Joel, build a life together and search for a new home for themselves and their dog, Blue. But when Michel receives a mysterious ransom note, things quickly change, and he and Sassy find themselves at the center of a police investigation. As old friends and enemies suddenly reappear, it becomes all too clear that the past isn’t quite done with them yet. Reckoning is the fifth novel featuring detectives Michel Doucette and Sassy Jones.
Reviews about Reckoning: The Quarter Boys (Volume 5) (7):
Fearlessrunner
I just finished the series and what a journey the last 6 books have been. David is a talented, unique writer; the whodunit twists, snarky humor but most of all, the emotional layers of each character ... I don't think I've ever read a mystery series who's characters I felt so connected to. Loved the realistic storylines and Michel and Sassy's friendship (we should all be blessed with friends like that); the playful banter and brutally honest conversations. Well, then there's that dog called Blue!
Akta
This is a great series with interesting protagonists that it is niice to meet up with again even though the stories don't always go down the path you expect, which actually makes the stories better reads even when you don't like the results.
Steelraven
I absolutely hated the ending!!! But, I loved the book. This recent addition to the "Quarter Boys" series is another triumph for Mr. Lennon, and I predict it will win him another Lammy! It is a fast paced read with a complete range of emotions. I laughed. I cried. I screamed at the end! Life doesn't always end on a happy note, and neither do all mystery series. It was more true to life than one might wish. Can't imagine why anyone would give this book a 1 Star.

Great character development and will keep you guessing till the end! I especially like all the unique subplots and twists.

If you want a happy ending, this novel is perhaps not for you. If you want a well constructed thriller, this book delivers. I've read all of the Quarter Boys books and Lennon has once again hit the mark.

I anxiously awaited the release of this book. I read all the others and as the author intended became totally involved in the characters. I am sorry that I read it. I am disappointed that Mr. Lennon chose such a cynical and sad ending.

I think the net effect of the "ending" derided by the previous posters is actually a redoubling of my interest and involvement in Mr. Lennon's remaining characters. Serial romances, even noir ones, can grow stale quickly when the characters appear to repel tragedy, especially in settings that are as evocatively seedy, edgy, and adrenaline-fueled as those portrayed here. Does it come as a surprise that one of the Reckoning crew becomes a victim of violence while tracking bad people in a city that is perennially a contender for the United States' highest per capita murder rate? As shocked as we are, wouldn't the absence of violence in this context challenge even our most steadfast inner Pollyanna? What sets this series apart is the presence of reminders--like Reckoning's ending--that these characters are living real lives in a real place; one where choices are theirs to make and ramifications theirs to be endured.

Violence is shocking and sad, leaving in its wake gaping holes and unanswerable questions why. I think the author has treated this unhappy moment in his characters' lives masterfully, leaving me shocked, sad, and, mostly, anxious to learn how he will fill the hole he has created.
this book and all books written by this writer are awesome. detailed and edge of seat. must have read order today
