Colin McCann’s life is about to be turned upside down. After happily chatting to the gorgeous American, Kit Hansen, he thinks nothing of helping drunk Denny Harrison home to his front gate. On Monday morning at school, however, he is summoned to the deputy head’s office to meet two detectives, who grill him about his movements on Friday night before informing his that not only was Denny murdered that night—his body found face-down in Casham Ponds—but that Colin is the prime suspect.
Ben and Colin are comfortably in each other's lives, but the path of true love is never an easy one, and a mistake throws Ben's loyalties to the wind. Not only that, but the mystery behind the deaths of Denny and the rent boys remains unsolved. Carter only had a list of hits. Were Colin a different person he might leave things well alone. But the thing about sleeping dogs is that some people can never let them lie.
