Publisher's Summary

Magdalene is a mob-connected madam. Tommy Flynn is the hitman who loves her. And when they're framed for the murder of a rival crime boss's favorite son, Magdalene fears the sins of her past have come back to haunt her.
After spending half a lifetime in a seamy underworld where love is for sale and men worship at the altar of sex and greed, claiming sanctuary in a cathedral is the last thing she wants to do - and the only chance she has to find out who set her up. With all clues pointing to Magdalene's ex-lover, a working girl called Lola, the legendary madam is reluctant to trust Tommy, a smooth-talking hired gun, and risk being burned again.
But as time grows short and secrets are revealed, Magdalene will have to look into the dark places inside herself if she is to catch a killer and survive with body and soul intact. In the corrupt city of Crawley, Massachusetts, passion, crime, and religion collide in this steamy, neo-noir romantic thriller.

Old Fashioned Mystery

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This is not a book I would refer. As an audible book it does not capture attention.

Did Carol Ayon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narration was a bit too monotone.

Did Man's Ruin inspire you to do anything?

I doubt that I would follow this author. There was nothing that inspired me to read another book.

Any additional comments?

The book was provided free for an honest review.
