Title: Dirty Deeds
Sheila Pinelli needed to be taken out.
Former cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis never considered committing murder. But six months ago, when Jae-Min’s blood filled his hands and death came knocking at his lover’s door, killing Sheila Pinelli became a definite possibility.
While Sheila lurks in some hidden corner of Los Angeles, Jae and Cole share a bed, a home, and most of all, happiness. They’d survived Jae’s traditional Korean family disowning him and plan on building a new life—preferably one without the threat of Sheila’s return hanging over them.
Thanks to the Santa Monica police mistakenly releasing Sheila following a loitering arrest, Cole finally gets a lead on Sheila’s whereabouts. That is, until the trail goes crazy and he’s thrown into a tangle of drugs, exotic women, and more death. Regardless of the case going sideways, Cole is determined to find the woman he once loved as a sister and get her out of their lives once and for all.

Cole to Bobby, “Time for me to bury some ghosts, not make new ones.”
Cole’s life is one hot mess. The cases he accepts always go way off the rails in an explosive disaster. Cole’s life itself is fairly tragic. One can look at how he got to where he is today and see the heartbreaking past he has come from. His desire to help others is what often leads him into those messes. The chaos is starting to get to him. He is beginning to see that things need to change if he is going to have many happy years with Jae. There is just one thing Cole has to move on from to see a long and healthy life.
Maybe I’m just now really getting into what this series is truly about but I have to admit that I didn’t really start caring about the mess that is Cole and Ben’s unknown drama until this book. Readers know from the very first book that Cole is now a private investigator, that he left the police department behind when his partner killed his lover and tried to kill him, then turned his gun on himself. That has always been enough for me. It was simply something that happened before I read Cole. After this book I have to say I’m beyond intrigued.
I love the opening chapters that Rhys Ford has created for her Cole McGinnis books. I go in to the next book wondering if she can possibly top the hilarity of the previous books opening chapter. Claudia being involved in Cole’s life in this manner was a great way to show the crazy that goes on at McGinnis Investigations.
Favorite quotes, Jae to Cole: “Cole-ah, some days you hurt me simply by breathing. And then there are says when I love you so much I don’t mind the pain.”
