After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears death isn't done with him yet.
Kane Morgan, the SFPD inspector renting space in the art co-op next door, initially suspects Miki had a hand in the man's murder, but Kane soon realizes Miki is as much a victim as the man splattered inside the GTO. As the murderer's body count rises, the attraction between Miki and Kane heats up. Neither man knows if they can make a relationship work, but despite Miki's emotional damage, Kane is determined to teach him how to love and be loved - provided, of course, Kane can catch the killer before Miki becomes the murderer's final victim.

Tristan James Brings This Book To Life
As the author of this book, I wanted to give a HUGE thank you to Tristan James' work in this narration. His voices for the individual characters was perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed his reading. I have heard nothing but positive reviews from my readers on his performance so thank you so much!

I was so excited this came out in audio. I loved this book and loved the audio version. The narrator is very good, complete with an Irish brogue. He also brought emotion to the story, which was great. A great love story and murder mystery. I hope the sequel also comes out with the same narrator.

Challenging story, fast narration
Sinners Gin was a really challenging story, especially with the dark subject matter being of Miki being a victim of sexual abuse as a child. There were a lot of things about the way this was handled that made me distinctly uncomfortable though. The story as a whole was dark, gritty and suspenseful. Despite my reservations with the subject matter, it was well on the way to being a five star book, but then we got to the first sex scene and two stars were blown away. Rhys Ford is a good writer but MY GOD, the sex scenes were interminable. Therefore, the story suffered badly from gratuitous sex. The scenes were over descriptive, not necessarily even erotic and went on far too long. There was so much head hopping when they made love that I had no idea who was doing what to whom. If i'd have been reading this book, not listening, I'd have done a lot of skimming on the sex scenes.
The audio narrator had a good mix of accents, but my one issue with him was that he spoke too fast. It was hard to keep up with the narrative sometimes.
Also, just a final observation. Kane Morgan and his brothers were from an Irish family. His parents moved to the US from Ireland, and Kane and his brothers were all US born. So.... why did they have Irish accents?
Anyway, this is a good listen... the cliffhanger was intriguing so I will continue with this series.

great start the series
There's a dead man in Miki's car and he has no idea how he got there. Zane, a SFPD inspector, is neighbours with Miki, sorta. When the body count increases, Kane is all out to keep Miki safe, while fighting the obvious attacrion to the younger man. Miki is still suffering from the accident that wiped out his band mates, and left him with a terribly injured leg. Kane knows Miki is damaged, both inside and out, but who was he to fight fate??
Narrator aside (I'll come back to that!) I loved this book! Its the first in a series, and the first I've read of this author, and I WILL look out for more. Its well written, has well developed characters, with believable hang ups and issues. The pain Miki carries, both physical and emoitonal, comes across every time, as does Kane's emotions, and how he is dealing with all that life has thrown at him. I loved the Morgan family, and how Kane and his brothers interacted, and his mum and dad?? fabulous! I did not see whodunnit coming, at all, so that kept me going right to the end.
the narrator...well, he had a thick american accent, which at times made me struggle to hear him properly. He dropped his voice alot, and even with my iPod turned right up, i didnt hear him. The Irish accent... being a UK native, I found it a little dodgy. I may well avoid other books in audio narrated by the same man. Then again, now I've got the hang of his voice, maybe I will be okay.
