Blurb: Working for the Bureau of Prohibition means facing dangerous criminals, desperate gangsters, speakeasies springing up overnight, a city controlled by corruption, and an employer that can’t be trusted. If that’s not enough, best friends and lovers Harlan Mackay and Nathan Reilly still bear the scars—both seen and unseen—that they earned fighting in the First World War. When a ghost from the past resurfaces to destroy everything they hold dear, it might be the last straw for Harlan and Nathan.

New York City is a war zone, the government is in the pocket of organized crime, and the exposure of their illicit romance is a constant danger. For Harlan and Nathan, it’s not a question of whether they’ll escape unscathed, but of which enemy will get them first….

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Harlan and Nathan have been though a lot together. They met during the first world war and have been together ever since. They are partners on the force and have the responsibility of taking down dangerous criminals. I loved the atmosphere of the book. I could feel the era purring through the words.

There is quite a lot of story packed into this short read but it’s well written and has a host of characters that bring the story to life. I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

Great read.
