Publisher's Summary

A Cole McGinnis Mystery
Sequel to Dirty Secret
For ex-cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis, each day brings a new challenge. Too bad most of them involve pain and death. Claudia, his office manager and surrogate mother, is still recovering from a gunshot, and Cole's closeted boyfriend, Kim Jae-Min, suddenly finds his teenaged sister dumped in his lap. Meanwhile, Cole has his own sibling problems-most notably, a mysterious half brother from Japan whom his older brother, Mike, is determined they welcome with open arms.
As if his own personal dramas weren't enough, Cole is approached by Madame Sun, a fortune-teller whose clients have been dying at an alarming rate. Convinced someone is after her customers, she wants the matter investigated, but the police think she's imagining things. Hoping to put Sun's mind at ease, Cole takes the case and finds himself plunged into a Gordian knot of lies and betrayal where no one is who they are supposed to be and Death seems to be the only card in Madame Sun's deck.

Another winner! More tears!

What made the experience of listening to Dirty Laundry the most enjoyable?

The narrator! Knowing or reading the story first, I had the characters pictured in my head, and as I have said in the last 2 audios, Greg nailed it again!

What other book might you compare Dirty Laundry to and why?

The first two! and Rhy's other series, Sinners Gin. Excellent writing, description of characters and Korean culture.

What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

His voices of the characters are perfect. Truly a performance and not a read a long!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and cried. Rhys is good at that. I think she attempts to see if she can reduce her readers to tears.... But, also funny as hell!

Any additional comments?

Worth every bit of the money! will stalk the narrator for the next one in the series!

Definitely Dirty, and Sexy!

Would you consider the audio edition of Dirty Laundry to be better than the print version?

Haven't read it but I can't imagine either version NOT being good.

What other book might you compare Dirty Laundry to and why?

The Sinner's Gin series, same author, she has a way with writing murder and mayhem.

Have you listened to any of Greg Tremblay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to all the Cole McGinnis books to date, Tremblay has narrated them all and done a fantastic job of it. I love how he can voice the Asian culture.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was a scene toward the end between Cole and Jae that literally made my toes curl. Very sexy and emotional!

Any additional comments?

Can you say shit storm? Clusterfuck? The world’s largest magnet for trouble? Allow me to introduce you to Cole McGinnis. This PI has a pinchet for danger and a good day for him, well that would be one where he wasn’t shot at, or no one died. While Cole spends his days trying to solve the cases that land on his desk and stay out of trouble, he spends the rest of his time trying to convince his closeted boyfriend Jae-Min that he loves him and keep Jae out of harm’s way as well. It would probably be easier to lasso a feral cat!

Cole’s most recent case is for one Madame Sun, a fortune teller whose clients are dropping like flies. While Cole weaves his way in and out of imminent danger, tries to get Jae to stand still long enough for a sloppy wet kiss and attempts to keep his partner and best friend Bobby off of his newly acquired little brother, he has to deal with a killer that has no problem what so ever taking out a child in order to prove a point. Cole may have bitten off more than even he can chew with this one.

Every instalment in this series gets more intense and gritty, for lack of a better word, dirty. The attention to detail is so precise, some little crumb that fell five minutes into the book becomes a monstrosity toward the end and will just throw you for a loop. The action and suspense is literally nonstop from start to finish, and the body count is insane. Any book by Rhys Ford is going to be good, but with this series in particular I find myself losing time I get so engrossed in the story.

The characters are so perfectly flawed with monsters, murderers and generally psychotic killers blending into the line up like flowers on wall paper. The attention to detail within the storylines adds depth and the way Ford can spin a tale, keep you guessing until the last second is so intense, I almost feel drained after listening to one of her books. Almost like coming down off a high, or a good drunk!

Ford has been paired with some amazing narrators for her stories as well, this series is helmed by the wondrous talents of Greg Tremblay. Steeped in Asian culture and personalities, Tremblay nails every subtle nuance and inflection right down to the unique tone of Jae-Min. His voice for Cole is slightly monotone, but it’s so perfectly Cole that I want to chuckle. When you get to hear the most noticeable strain or emotion in either of them is when they are together, or when Cole is worrying about Jae-Min. And I love that, that Tremblay can really nail the intense emotions these two share only with each other. There is a scene toward the end of the book, Christ almighty, I’m a straight woman and that scene made MY toes curl!

This is a must read for folks that love a good mystery, crime dramas, murder, mayhem, a sexy PI that attracts trouble like dryer sheet attracts lint, and an edgy Asian man that is afraid to sit still for more than five minutes, because in that five minutes he will have to admit to himself that he’s fallen in love with said sexy PI.

Wow! Not what I expected...love this story

Would you listen to Dirty Laundry again? Why?

Yep!! There is so much more than a love story/who done it, going on in this series and the glimpses into Korean customs is really interesting.

What other book might you compare Dirty Laundry to, and why?

I can not think of any other book that I can compare to this. The whole Korean cultural spectrum is completely outside my understanding. I think Ms Fords gave us a fascinating insight

What does Greg Tremblay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Tremblay brings the story to life. His portrayal of the characters are so realistic. I can't speak Korean but I am convinced that he can.
I read the latest book in the series-Dirty Deeds and I heard his voice in every dialogue between Jae and Cole. Really good Narration

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

The Rhys Ford-Greg Tremblay combo still rocks!

I hadn't read this in pixels or print before listening to this and I decided not to switch between audio and pixels but I found it really frustrating to have to wait to listen to more of the book on the occasions when I had to stop listening (during dinner etc when I had to be social!)
I loved this book! It had angst, love, passion, violence, humour, hatefulness, as well as banana balls craziness. I teared up at parts; I laughed at others. Ichiro's character made a brief appearance but there was enough to make me want to zip forward to his story (but I will be good and listen in order). No Scarlet in this one which was a shame, but plenty of Bobby which often added to the humour. The mystery was convoluted and I didn't see the identity of the killer coming at all.
And OMG that ending!
Greg Tremblay was awesome. The characters all have their own unique voices or tones and the emotion he can put into the dialogue is excellent. I'm glad he's narrated them all as I don't think I could get into Cole, Jae, Bobby, Maddy and Scarlet narrated by anyone else.
