Sin and Tonic by Rhys Ford

Miki St. John believed happy endings only existed in fairy tales until his life took a few unexpected turns… and now he’s found his own.

His best friend, Damien, is back from the dead, and their new band, Crossroads Gin, is soaring up the charts. Miki’s got a solid, loving partner named Kane Morgan—an Inspector with SFPD whose enormous Irish family has embraced him as one of their own—and his dog, Dude, at his side.

It’s a pity someone’s trying to kill him.

Old loyalties and even older grudges emerge from Chinatown’s murky, mysterious past, and Miki struggles to deal with his dead mother’s abandonment, her secrets, and her brutal murder while he’s hunted by an enigmatic killer who may have ties to her.

The case lands in Kane’s lap, and he and Miki are caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. When Miki is forced to face his personal demons and the horrors of his childhood, only one thing is certain: the rock star and his cop are determined to fight for their future and survive the evils lurking in Miki’s past.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

After exhausting brothers, cousins, and bandmates, I’m so glad to see this series return to Kane and Miki. The original pair is back as a committed couple with a whole lot of history behind them. These two have accepted each other’s quirks and adapted to the idiosyncrasies of their shared lives.

Old fears and memories surface when Miki is abruptly confronted with his past. I love that Kane and Miki face the threats to Miki’s safety together without the angst and doubt that would have had Miki fighting Kane at every turn a couple of years ago. I also love the way Miki now accepts his place in Kane’s family.

Kane’s investigation into Chinatown’s murky underworld is complicated and scary at times. With Kane and Miki already a settled couple, there is more focus on the police and their investigation than the romance in this book and I really enjoyed the murder mystery element of the story.

This feels like the end of what has become a favourite series and though I’m sad to see these characters go, this is a satisfying end and it does justice to the series.
