Title: An Honorable Man
Officer Danny Finnegan loves his job. As one of the youngest faces on the police force, he has taken on the challenge of going undercover to catch a serial killer in Manhattan. Ten rent boys have been murdered, and Danny knows it won’t be long before another one turns up dead in an alley. He and his partner, Tiernan Callahan, gear up to hit the seedy side of the city that never sleeps. There’s only one problem. They need help to make Danny’s cover convincing.
Bobby Laughlin left the back streets of Manhattan behind when he came way too close to becoming another number in the rent boy killings. He spends most of his time on Fire Island working at a bar. He is trying to get his life back on track when officer Danny Finnegan walks back into his life. Bobby was attracted to Danny the first time he saw him — when the boyish-looking cop took Bobby’s statement after a client beat him brutally. Working with the the sexy cop could be dangerous. It would put him right back on the streets he’s been trying so hard to avoid.
Bobby reluctantly takes on the task of teaching Danny how to work the streets. As things heat up on the case and in their hearts, Bobby finds himself falling for Danny, and Danny has eyes only for Bobby.
But can they catch a killer before one of them ends up as the next headline?

An Honorable Man follows Bobby and Danny. We’ve met them both in the previous book/books. Danny Finnegan is Tiernan Callahan’s (A Healing Man) partner on the police force. Bobby worked the streets with Ryan (A Selfless Man) as a rent boy. Bobby and Danny have already met when the readers catch up to them here in their own book.
The serial killer is still on the loose and the number of dead rent boys is quickly escalating. Officer Finnegan has been approached by his superior officers to go under cover and work the case from that angel. Danny has the looks of a twelve year old and could easily be mistaken for a rent boy with the right clothes and some assistance from someone who has actually worked the streets selling his body for sex.
Ever since he was attacked (in A Selfless Man) Bobby has been laying low in a different zip code. The serial killer got far too close to him once and he isn’t going to let it happen again. He did the only thing he knew to do, he skipped town. He doesn’t trust easily and he most certainly doesn’t trust the cops. The first person to catch up to hiatus Bobby is a cop, Danny. Bobby’s first instinct is to run, especially when the cop is asking him to help him, his department, and an entire investigation.
The Men of Manhattan books that I’ve read up to this point would have easily worked as a stand-alone. An Honorable Man does work as a stand-alone, but some of the activities of the serial killer do take place in the previous book. The serial killer part of the plot does not have enough significance to leave a reader confused if they were to jump into the series with this book.
