Family squabbles can be murder. Psychic PI Russ Morgan investigates a vandalized marijuana grow in Mesa County Colorado, landing in the middle of a ferocious family feud that’s escalating in a hurry. Five siblings fight over the family ranch as it staggers on the brink of bankruptcy, marijuana its only salvation. Not everyone agrees, but only one of them is willing to kill to make a point. Russ also has a personal puzzle to solve as he questions his deepening relationship with Colin Stewart, a man half his age. His rational mind says being with Colin is the fast track to heartbreak, but it feels grounding, sane, and good. Now, that’s really dangerous…

A solid mystery story. Developed original characters and a slightly twisted plot. An entertaining read for a smooth evening.

An excellent mystery with a hint of romance. The characters were engaging and vivid and I couldn't put the book down. A thoroughly enjoyable read!

Great story filled with mystery which is something I really enjoy and look for in a thriller. I appreciated the suspense, finding out who the antagonist was. Sometimes the wolf IS dressed in lamb's skin. It was so hard putting this book down at night knowing I had to get up so early in the morning to then continue reading while making breakfast for my daughter before sending her out to school. This is a 'Pick up and don't put down til you're down' sort of book. Definitely will read more from this author.

An engrossing read, rich in the mystery side and well written and well researched on the subject of family feud, as well as the setting.  An unmissable mystery in the m/m genre.
