Genre: MM Romance, mystery, suspense
Someone is leaving a trail of bodies throughout London, and Detective Anthony Parglietto is determined to end the violence. Then he’ll return to the man he loves.
Tough, street-savvy, and used to dealing with lowlifes, Flynn Parker is the last person Anthony thinks he has to protect. Then the Bow-Tie Killer strikes close to home and the world turns upside down. Right is wrong, black is white, and a policeman might become a monster. But in the name of love, justice must be served. In the name of love, pain can be endured. In the name of love, a man can taste the very essence that defines him.
Flynn moved the mouse and hovered over an email folder he’d created simply called BTK. He hesitated then clicked the folder open. A string of email messages revealed themselves and he started with the first one and re-read it for about the hundredth time.
Flynn. I hope you enjoyed our little get-together as much as I did. I hope you told Anthony all about it. He deserved to know. I notice the story didn’t make the newspapers; are you feeling a little ashamed about our tryst? Tsk-tsk. No matter. We know what happened don’t we? BTW did he find my bottle in your kitchen? The dog that came from didn’t need it anymore. But he served his purpose. Anyways, I’ll be in touch as promised. You said you’d tell my story. I don’t want you to say anything to anyone yet. And I mean anyone. That includes Detective P. If you do, I will kill him. I’ll also kill your other fuck buddy, Kieran. Just as an extra. You know I will. So keep that pretty mouth of yours closed or I’ll cut your lips off too. See then if you can give Detective Italy a blow job. This is the plan. I’ll send you a little bit of information each time and you can add it to your scrapbook. If I hear of anything leaking out before I want it to…well, let’s just say you’ll have to find someone else to screw you. If they still want to when you’re all disfigured. I know you can do it, Flynn. So make sure you fucking do. Or I’ll be standing behind you one dark night and you won’t ever see me coming. Your admirer, BTK.
Flynn had been physically sick when he’d read it for the first time. He’d known this man was psychopathic but the sheer chilling, conversational words in the email had sent shivers of dread down his spine. Keeping this from Anthony had been difficult but Flynn’s options seemed limited. He wasn’t prepared to take any chances on his safety or Kieran’s so for now he was playing along with the perverted bastard. The police presence he’d had assigned to him since the incident was a comfort factor but he also knew it wouldn’t last forever. Flynn had heard Anthony on the phone speaking quietly to someone about what was going to happen when they eventually pulled the protection detail off.
