When a private client asks Ram and Will to track down a stolen yellow diamond, they quickly realise the suspects may be closer to home than he expects. Two adult children with serious issues, a jilted wife, and a young lover – and that’s just the beginning.
As what should be a straightforward case turns into a murder investigation, Serial Investigations London have to team up with their old friend Alex Heath – and an old enemy…
With Will in recovery and Ram staying on the wagon, everything seems to be looking up in their personal lives. They’ve even finally managed to admit their feelings for each other, but that doesn’t mean the road ahead is without rocks.
After an uncomfortable confrontation for Will, and with calls from their families becoming harder to ignore, the boys are going to need to work harder than ever to ignore their own issues if they want to get to the bottom of this crime – in which nothing is as straightforward as it seems.

*I received this novel for free in exchange for an honest review*
After months apart, Will and Ram are back together and are ready to take on their first case together since the events of Blood Sport. The case appears straightforward. A diamond belonging to a wealthy family has gone missing and Will and Ram have been hired to find it. From the beginning they suspect an inside job but when theft turns to murder, Will and Ram find themselves in the middle of a much bigger investigation than they intended.
I really enjoyed reading the next book of this series. The mystery this time is different from previous ones and I enjoyed the change as well as trying to figure out who was responsible! Will and Ram are an adorable couple! They still have some issues to work through, but they have a very sweet and tender relationship, and I am glad that they finally got together! I have a feeling that their relationships with their parents might be explored further in later books and I am looking forward to this (although Will and Ram may not be so much!). The diamond theft turn murder plot was very intriguing and kept me guessing right until the end. Also, if Will and Ram think that they have seen the last of JM Coil then they are mistaken! It looks like he’s still running things from the inside and the boys will be seeing more of him in the future too.
A great next instalment of the series and I cannot wait to read further books in the Serial Investigations series!
