I would recommend you don’t start this before you read/listen to Murder and Mayhem (book one). It’s much better as part of the series than as a standalone.
Tramps and Thieves picks up some time after the events of Murder and Mayhem and Rook and Dante are now an established couple complementing each other really well. Told in an alternating POV, death and mystery follow former thief Rook Stevens around once again leaving his detective boyfriend, Dante Montoya, to help resolve the mystery and keep Rook from being killed. Tremblay, as expected, offers up great character voices, terrific pacing, and on point timing.
Rhys Ford is definitely hitting her stride in this series with a great plot, strong characters, and terrific pacing which is all impeccably captured audibly by Greg Tremblay.

I tore through this audio. It's a good mystery and an excellent production. I love how the narrator does voices that seem like real people but different enough that I don't get lost as characters talk. So friggin awesome!
I adore this series, and Mr T does a brilliant job yet again of bringing Rook, Dante, Camden, Uncle Manny and Archie to life. Dante and his cuervo are more deeply in love, but Rook has reneged on his going straight pledge..or so we are lead to believe. We also had a significant visitor from the Cole McGinnis series, Detective Dell O'Byrne [whom I would never have known was Latino from her name]. She takes over the **coughs** murder case from Detective Vicks who...well I'll leave you to discover what happens to him, but *I* certainly didn't miss him.
I can only hope Rhys keeps writing these characters cos I really miss Cole, Jae, Bobby and Ichi. 💜
This was another enjoyable Rhys Ford audiobook with superb narration.
The story itself was a well plotted mystery, but as with all Rhys Ford books I find she leans too much on purple prose and repeats herself. This inturn makes the love scenes overlong and frustrating when they are supposed to be sexy and romantic. Less is more sometimes.
Both Dante and Rook are likeable flawed characters and so I would like to know what happens next!
