Publisher's Summary

There's a dead man in Miki St. John's vintage Pontiac GTO, and he has no idea how it got there.

After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears death isn't done with him yet.

Kane Morgan, the SFPD inspector renting space in the art co-op next door, initially suspects Miki had a hand in the man's murder, but Kane soon realizes Miki is as much a victim as the man splattered inside the GTO. As the murderer's body count rises, the attraction between Miki and Kane heats up. Neither man knows if they can make a relationship work, but despite Miki's emotional damage, Kane is determined to teach him how to love and be loved - provided, of course, Kane can catch the killer before Miki becomes the murderer's final victim.

    "Tristan James Brings This Book To Life"

    As the author of this book, I wanted to give a HUGE thank you to Tristan James' work in this narration. His voices for the individual characters was perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed his reading. I have heard nothing but positive reviews from my readers on his performance so thank you so much!

    "Awesome!!"

    I was so excited this came out in audio. I loved this book and loved the audio version. The narrator is very good, complete with an Irish brogue. He also brought emotion to the story, which was great. A great love story and murder mystery. I hope the sequel also comes out with the same narrator.

    "Don't Let the Summary Fool You!"
    What did you like best about Sinner's Gin? What did you like least?

    The accents and performance of the narrator were amazing. What I liked least was that I was expecting some kind of action in this book but it was just another tired old gay romance novel that follows the same pattern as every other gay romance out there. It was remarkable to me how little the murders and the police work were even considering in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    It's probably a good book if you're looking for romance, but the summary really needs to be updated so people like me (who HATE romance books) don't end up with it.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm not going to play, Tristan James is a favorite narrator of mine, hands down. He could read the phone book and I might find it engrossing. Luckily, this kick ass story is a helluva lot better than the phone book!

    I loved the close Irish family (my parents are very similar to Donal and Brigid so the interactions made me chuckle), the cop partner dynamic between Kel and Kane, and, mostly, the way Kane understood that Miki is, well, damaged, irreparably in some ways, but still able to create a connection.

    I liked the story, though I found the stalker/murderer storyline to be tied up a little too neatly in the end.

    All in all, I really enjoyed this and I look forward to spending more time with the Morgan clan.

    And WOW do I love Tristan James. That man's voice does things to me...

    Um...not those kinds of things! I mean he has a great narrative voice! Get your minds out of the gutter! His accents are terrific and he makes any story better. It didn't make me less baffled by the ending, but it did make it more entertaining.

    This is a sexy, fast-paced, hurt/comfort, murder mystery with great narration and scorching hot sexy times!

    "I dont know why i cant like it"

    I started listening to this series because of all the great reviews, and by now i listened to all of them, but i just dont seem to be able to connect to the characters in the books. I think its because i feel like im missing the main story - the background of the MCs plays a vital role in this series and i feel like there should have been a book 0. The stories are well written and i have nothing really bad to say - just a kind of hollow feeling that there should have been more.

    "Wonderful begining..."
    Where does Sinner's Gin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks up there, I was about to stop buying M/M romance because I was tired of the same...This was not the same ole, same ole. It was a little Josh Lanyon, meets Cardeno C.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the narrator, please, please, do not change the narrator midway through the series. I am hoping you will be consistent in this series. He did such a good job with the Irish accents, and transitioned between all the characters without sounding exaggerated. Even his female voices were believable.


    Which character – as performed by Tristan James – was your favorite?

    My favorite character was Miki St John.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not have an extreme reaction, but I definitely had a surprised and pleasant reaction. It did make me laugh, though.


    Any additional comments?

    Must listen to the next in the series.

    "Even better than reading the story"

    I enjoyed reading Sinner's Gin when it was first released. This narrative by Tristan James is excellent because the he conveys the different characters' voices so well, especially of course the Irish accents of the entire Morgan family, from Kane and his brothers, to his father Donal. I heartily reccommend this audio book to others.

    Even more important to me is, this well-delivered narrative brought Rhys Ford's prose alive and listening to it reveals more of the structure of the story. I have gotten too impatient when I find a well-written story, and I have to force myself to slow down and enjoy it. Narratives force one to not skip a word, and this one inspires me to go back and re-read the story.

    Whyskey and Rye, which I did not enjoy reading quite as much as Sinner's Gin, will be my next audio purchase, just because it is done by the same narrator. And I count on the audio version to again reveal to my ears the suble aspects of the story landscape that my greedy eyes may have skipped in my first read.

    Rhys Ford is a very talented story teller and writer, and I am glad to see this author choosing a narrator worthy of her efforts.

    "Tristan James is a fabulous narrator!"
    Where does Sinner's Gin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Sinner's Gin is among my favorites right up there with Cut & Run. The story is fabulous and Tristan James is a much better narrator than 99% of what I have listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sinner's Gin?

    Every time Miki and Kane are together.


    Which character – as performed by Tristan James – was your favorite?

    If I have to choose it would be Kane. I could listen to Tristan's voice in Kane's soft Irish brogue forever.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story made me laugh AND cry but that's what helps make it a good book for me.

    "Similar themes to "Dirty...." Series"

    Enjoy authors sense of humour especially in regard the the large Irish cop family. Even in some of the difficult emotional moments the wit comes out and I found myself chuckling as I listened one iPhone. Got funny looks from passers by!! Lol I'm Really enjoying these gay love stories. Is it because I'm 65?!

    "Sinner's Gin: A Romantic and Enchanting Love story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely do recommend this to a friend (have already done so). I believe that the book is beautiful as it has the right amount of sex and romance in it. The 2 man slowly built up their relationship with great care especially from Kane's part which leads into passionate sex scenes and the amazing plot being slowly revealed! It kept me hooked up every second!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sinner's Gin?

    When Kane made Miki to open up and talk to him about his past. Then he started crying in Kane's lab ;~~~~~~;


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I died at the bit where Miki said to Kane "Please take off your clothes, cause... U know no one has done this before and for me it means that you will be staying" and then Kane takes off his clothes and he is like "Take a good look Miki love cause I am staying".... *intense screaming*


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Miki Love~


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was awesome I love the Irish accent :Q_____ off to the next book~
