Officer Danny Finnegan loves his job. As one of the youngest faces on the police force, he has taken on the challenge of going undercover to catch a serial killer in Manhattan. Ten rent boys have been murdered, and Danny knows it won’t be long before another one turns up dead in an alley. He and his partner, Tiernan Callahan, gear up to hit the seedy side of the city that never sleeps. There’s only one problem. They need help to make Danny’s cover convincing.
Bobby Laughlin left the back streets of Manhattan behind when he came way too close to becoming another number in the rent boy killings. He spends most of his time on Fire Island working at a bar. He is trying to get his life back on track when officer Danny Finnegan walks back into his life. Bobby was attracted to Danny the first time he saw him — when the boyish-looking cop took Bobby’s statement after a client beat him brutally. Working with the the sexy cop could be dangerous. It would put him right back on the streets he’s been trying so hard to avoid.
Bobby reluctantly takes on the task of teaching Danny how to work the streets. As things heat up on the case and in their hearts, Bobby finds himself falling for Danny, and Danny has eyes only for Bobby.
But can they catch a killer before one of them ends up as the next headline?
Book 7 in the Men of Manhattan series and as I say after reading each one I would recommend you start at the beginning and read them in order as the characters from the previous books do pop up and make appearances.
An Honorable Man picks up where we left the story in A Selfless Man with a serial killer still on the loose that has all the rent boys afraid – especially the ones who work for Royal. Bobby is one of Royals boys but he has taken off and is working for Butch in his bar where he at least feels a modicum of safety. That feeling doesn’t last long though when the Police come knocking on his door asking for his help and he comes face to face with Officer Danny Finnegan who he hasn’t seen since he left the hospital.
Danny Finnegan is one of the younger faces in his job but it’s a job he loves and one that means a lot to his family. Out and proud he takes no nonsense learning to fight and having the ability to protect himself early on to make sure he always stayed safe when the bigots got up in his face. He’s a fun character that brings a lot of laughter to the story and has a whacky sense of humour that keeps his family and work colleagues amused.
This is a quick and sweet read with very little conflict. They fall in love fast and everything is pretty easy for them – except for the part that a serial killer is trying to kill Bobby. I always enjoy seeing characters from previous books in a series and that is pretty much guaranteed with this author as the story arc for each series grows. If you are a fan of Sandrine I am pretty sure you will enjoy An Honorable Man.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
