BLURB: It isn’t easy being a Morgan. Especially when dead bodies start piling up and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it.
Quinn Morgan never quite fit into the family mold. He dreamed of a life with books instead of badges and knowledge instead of law—and a life with Rafe Andrade, his older brothers’ bad boy friend and the man who broke his very young heart.
Rafe Andrade returned home to lick his wounds following his ejection from the band he helped form. A recovering drug addict, Rafe spends his time wallowing in guilt, until he finds himself faced with his original addiction, Quinn Morgan—the reason he fled the city in the first place.
When Rafe hears the Sinners are looking for a bassist, it’s a chance to redeem himself, but as a crazed murderer draws closer to Quinn, Rafe’s willing to sacrifice everything—including himself—to keep his quixotic Morgan safe and sound.

FedericaThis is the fourth book in the Sinner Gin’s series.
Who among us has not fallen in love with the great Morgan family?
In every book we find out more of this exceptional family group and we get more in-depth information with some of the Morgan’s brothers.
Morgan’s family is wonderfully Irish, the Morgan brothers have almost all followed in the footsteps of the patriarch becoming police officers, with a few exceptions, Quinn is one of them.
Compared with other books in the series this is a bit different, and this helps to give momentum to the series.
Quinn has always been the “outsider”, He has had severe depression problems that nearly brought him one step away from suicide. His mind has always had it’s own way of thinking/working and within his family’, he sometimes feels out of place.
He is professor. He lives in his own world, struggles to cultivate interpersonal relations, but has a good relationship with his father – who is a solid figure and also with his mother – a force of nature! sometimes he finds it hard to relate, in this he is similar to our Miky .
Rafe knows Quinn since they were children and he always loved him, but has moved away chasing his dreams of fame.
But true love knows no boundaries of space and time, and now that they met again……
Rafe is recovering from a very bad time, his drug addiction had almost destroyed his life and now he must rebuilt it.
He will be sucked into this whirlwind of murders involving Quinn but will he be willing to do anything in order to save him?
I must admit that the characters have surprised me, between the two MCs , Rafe has to be the most “damaged”, coming out of a period of rehabilitation, but he’s extraordinarily strong, perhaps too much?
I thought Quinn was going to be the strong one between them, and maybe in some ways he was, but he is also so fragile. He is a very complex character, a surprise compared to the times when we met him in the other books.
In a series, I really love meeting all the characters of the previous books, to see them intertwine and interact.
Every book that Rhys Ford writes, she masterfully mixes the love affair with the detective plot, each time creating a fascinating story that are always so engaging.
When you open a book of Rhys Ford you will not be able to close it until you finish it.
A series not to be missed!
