Jury of One (Lindenshaw Mysteries #2) by Charlie Cochrane

Inspector Robin Bright is enjoying a quiet Saturday with his lover, Adam Matthews, when murder strikes in nearby Abbotston, and he’s called in to investigate. He hopes for a quick resolution, but as the case builds, he’s drawn into a tangled web of crimes, new and old, that threatens to ensnare him and destroy his fledgling relationship. 

Adam is enjoying his final term teaching at Lindenshaw School, and is also delighted to be settling down with Robin at last. Only Robin doesn’t seem so thrilled. Then an old crush of Adam’s shows up in the murder investigation, and suddenly Adam is yet again fighting to stay out of one of Robin’s cases, to say nothing of trying to keep their relationship from falling apart. 

Between murder, stabbings, robberies, and a suspect with a charming smile, the case threatens to ruin everything both Robin and Adam hold dear. What does it take to realise where your heart really lies, and can a big, black dog hold the key?

My review:
If you love the British mystery shows on PBS you will love this book.
Inspector Robin Bright is back with his trusty sidekick Sargent Anderson, his boyfriend Adam and the ever lovable Newfie Campbell and murder is on his agenda. This time it is in a nearby town that is short staffed investigating a serial killer. This is a really convoluted tale of several murders, robberies and plain old assault. This story played out in my mind like Masterpiece Theater. I really enjoyed trying to figure out who dunnit. I think you will too.
Even if you don’t like m/m you should enjoy this story as anything other than a kiss happens behind closed doors.
