Publisher's Summary

Not much could drag Jim Booker out of a peaceful, if lonely, retirement and back to late nights, crime scenes, and chases. Jim Booker is done with detective work and would just like to enjoy a cup of coffee on a sunny day. But when an old friend shows up with a case about an old flame, Booker can't say no.
What starts as a missing persons case soon delivers more than he bargained for, and when Booker's own past offers clues, it's clear that no one else can solve this mystery. But there's a catch: Booker was given six months to live eight months ago.
J. R. Rain shows us that when it seems there's nothing left to live for, there's also nothing left to lose. His characters will take a chance on danger, doubt, even an unlikely romance - as long as they get a cup of coffee first.

Emotional. Perfect Ending

What a sad but lovely tale of a gay man and his friendship with a straight man that defines love as more than superficial acts of attraction or lust.

The MC is straight, completely and fully. His best friend is gay, completely and fully but in the end gay/straight it didn't matter. It was one human protecting, loving, comforting another human being. Just a beautifully sad tale.

This is not a romance, there are no real erotic scenes (though the main MC does spend a small amount of time with a women he fell in love with).

The mystery part of the story added a layer of heartbreaking emotions that didn't over take the story, only added another emotional punch.

Yea, I was crying at the end of this story but the ending was so beautiful to me. It truly was. I loved seeing a gay character portrayed in a fiercely strong protective confident angelic way towards his friend. A bit of unrequited love but In more ways than one, he took care of his straight best friend and it was so beautiful to me.

So, this is not a romance what so ever. But it is a great story of loss, true friendship, and a crime mystery long over due to be solved.
