Murder and Mayhem is the first book I have read by Rhys Ford and I am already a fan of her fast-paced writing and solid male characters.

It goes without saying that Rook is the ultimate protagonist. He is the bad-boy turned good, with an air of mystery and sexiness. Whilst Rook Stevens is the lovable rogue, Dante Montoya is the straight-laced police detective, determined to pin any crime on the owner of Potter's Field. The two men have a professional and personal history which makes the events of the story all the more intriguing. Rook and Dante are also heavily influenced by the two male family members in their lives. For Dante it is the wonderfully flamboyant Uncle Manny, who was also disowned by his Mexican family because of his sexuality. The thorn in Rook's side is his rich grandfather, Archie. Cantankerous, obstinate and the complete opposite of Manny, Archie expresses his love for his grandson in a different way. Whilst these two characters are like chalk and cheese they add an emotional depth and humour to the story which is needed. Murder and Mayhem begins with an unexplained death and as the story unfolds we turn the pages as fast as we can, as the lives of our characters are put in danger and we move towards an unexpected and exciting conclusion.

I will definitely be reading more by Rhys Ford and particularly love the balance she achieves between mystery, romance, sex and deep character portrayal.
