    • I have to start my review as many other readers who reviewed Pretty Boy Dead by Jon Michaelsen - be aware THIS BOOK is not ROMANCE.Otherwise it wouldn't have been nominated for 26th Lambda Literary Award(2014) in the category Gay Mystery. BTW, the jury's selection for this year was top-class. You can have a look at the other finalists here.Unfortunately gay mystery genre will be very often misinterpreted, partly thanks numerous characters in MM Romance genre. Police officers, private investigato [...]


    • It should be noted that the following review/rating is based more on my own experiences reading the story than what someone else, who doesn’t have my hang-ups, might have given the book. It also has quite a few spoilers.This books starts out in Jason’s pov, and for the next few chapters we are taken through his life as he attempts to screw over his boss/lover (a mobster of ill-repute) and flee the country. Things don’t go according to plan, he ends up being killed, and then the real story [...]


    • 4.5 starsFirst of all, Pretty Boy Dead is not a romance. NOT A ROMANCE. I cannot stress this strong enough. Going into the book expecting it would be a disservice to both the reader and the author. The publisher categorized it as gay mainstream and I agree. It was written and plotted well enough to stand without shame shoulder to shoulder with its mainstream counterparts (no gay prefix needed). The book is, first and foremost, a police procedural and a very realistic one at that.I usually start [...]


    • The first thing that struck me, believe it or not, was the Acknowledgements before the story even began. Why, you might ask? When I saw the thanks attached to real people and names that assisted the author in his research of police procedures, crime scenes, and morgue related questions, I was supremely impressed. And that was before I started the first chapter! This was my first experience with a Jon Michaelsen book and I jumped into it eagerly.The story begins with a young male stripper, an inv [...]


    • Endorsements for Pretty Boy Dead“Pretty Boy Dead is amazingly good - and one of the best gay mysteries I've read in a long time. It leaps ahead of so many books in this genre on the strength of its suspense and depth of its characters, and stayed with me long after the last chapter. Highly recommended for those who like swift, compelling stories.”Chris Beakey, author of Double Abduction, a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award“Jon Michaelsen has hit a mark often missed by writers: He's wr [...]


    • Like I said before, I love a good mystery and this was a GREAT one. I like to try to figure “who done it” while reading any mystery, and this book kept me on my toes. Some of the players were much more obvious than others, and there was a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming. If you are looking for a great mystery, you can’t go wrong with Pretty Boy Dead. The police procedure seemed to be spot on, and the personal relationships were very well fleshed out.See the entire review at The [...]


    • Full review can be found at On Top Down Under Book Reviews.A murdered male stripper. A closeted cop who is surrounded by homophobic coworkers. An interesting cast of characters who may or may not be who they seem. An enjoyable mystery.Note that this is not a romance so do not go into it expecting it to be.This book was provided by Wilde City Press in exchange for a fair and honest review.


    • I really enjoy a good mystery. And to say I was thoroughly entertained throughout this tale would be the understatement of the decade. Mr. Michaelsen trapped me in the first paragraph and I was not set free until the very last sentence.Everything necessary for a first-rate thriller is in here, and in all the right places. First of all we have the introduction of characters all neatly in a row only to have them scatter as their personalities expand and the story develops. Then the plot, which is [...]


    • A well written and engrossing storyI was engaged by this book from the first page. There's an attention to detail that makes it clear the author does his homework and then some. I liked the character of Kendal Parker a lot and was engrossed by the descriptions and insights into both the characters and their environment. It all felt very real, an excellent read.


    • This is a mystery and there's no romance. And what a complicated mystery it is! Great writing and story but it will probably take me a second reading just to connect it all. Loved it and hope there will be more. Have to admit, I hope for just a little romance in a future book.


    • 4.5*A gritty, at times uncomfortable read in the genuine murder mystery vein - no holds barred from the attack to the autopsy, the description of life for those at the bottom of society and the bigotry faced within the police force. There is no sugar coating in this book.The start of the book gave me a feeling of impending doom as we follow Jason as he sets into place a plan to let him escape - but from who and what? Was his unlikeable treatment of Tim normal or stress related - I didn't want to [...]


    • When a male stripper is found dead in the park, in-the-closet Atlanta police sergeant Kendall Parker is assigned to find the killer. The crime is politically sensitive and elections are just around the corner, so the powers that be want Parker to railroad a street kid with a drug problem and AIDS. He knows it isn't right, but the kid makes his job finding the real murderer any easier when he attacks another cop investigating the crime. A local blue blood family and a popular politician add red h [...]


    • Truthfully, I was about a third of the way in before I decided that I was going to finish this book. It was a slow start, but when it caught me I didn’t want to put it down. This is an old fashioned type mystery, with really bad bad guys, a harried police detective, a captain that only cares about the politics behind everything, and detailed police work (the autopsy was a little too detailed for me!). This book was tagged as an m/m romance, but there is no romance in this book. There are some [...]


    • This was a really great read, not a romance! Very well thought out and constructed mystery that had me guessing until the very end. Loved Kendall Parker's character, broken alcoholic gay detective buried in the closet on Atlanta's polcie force. Looking forward the Parker's next mystery.


    • Started, put away for quite some time, got back to it and suddenly couldn't put it down. Very engaging and gripping story. Kendall grew on me and I can't wait to read the next book in this series.


    • Good, if somewhat convoluted mystery, and a villain so disgusting he was almost likable again. Not much of a romance.
