Mysteries are not easy to write. The premise is a great one and the end is a surprise.  Certainly, worth reading and a solid entry to the Secret Author contest!

This is a good story that fits nicely into the mystery category. They're always fun to read. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the format was all telling, with very little showing. Other than that, you did a good job and this was  solid contribution as a Secret Author

A gay detective investigates gay hate crimes.  It’s told in the first person which is both it’s strength and weakness.  The storyline is very good, the twist is excellent but some may find the style a bit staid whilst others will love it.  This is one to divide the critics. It could have made an excellent series with character developments and less narrative of events.  Still very worth a try.

A short but thrilling mystery involving a severe beating, a host of suspects and 3 deceased victims. Fast paced, well developed leads and enough mystery to whet anyone's whistle!!

A well-written and gripping short murder mystery. It packs a lot into 11.4k words, it really packs a punch. I'm not going to give too much away, but there are more victims in this story than those attacked and murdered. A great story that grips from the start. Very nicely done.

This is a very riveting murder mystery.  It would seem the author has experience, or did some in depth research that lended an authentic feel to the story.  It is an excellently written story well worth reading.

We have a gay police detective and 3 murder victim's.

What happens when you mix the two together you have a fantastic murder mystery.

Fantastic story, well worth reading.
