DUSTY DEATH, by J. M. Gregson
a not-really-reformed prostitute, a rising musical virtuoso, a drug dealer with a fondness for violence, a soccer player, and a hard-sell real estate agent. The years between the murder and their present lives fade away as Peach relentlessly pursues the truth, in face of his incompetent but telegenic supervisor, Tommy Bloody Tucker. If for no other reason, reading the passages where Peach sends up Tucker are worth your time. (And the romance between Peach and Blake makes me really want to meet the author!) The series really ought to be read in order. It's a 4, and the sex is suitably subtle so I'll give it a 1.5 even though Peach gives it his best shot(s).
The author has declined to have a website. Nice to see a committed luddite once in a while.
