Ray Martinez is one of three late-twentysomething gay friends in Miami, who meet up every Friday night to update each other on their week, as well as check out the new faces and bodies, at Score, a popular nightspot. Ray is the movie critic for the Miami News, lives with his lively mutt Gigli (named for the particularly memorable - and not in a good way - JoLo/Afleck film he reviewed), and is somewhat jealous of his straight twin brother, Rasco, whom he feels he is more respected by his Cuban-American family, as well as due to the fact that he is soon to be married. Ted is a reporter and "lifestyle" show host on a local television station, and, although he enjoys the recognition and adoration that status brings to him, feels a bit intimidated by the buff beauties who make up the Miami gay singles scene, and longs to meet someone who will be attracted to who he is, rather that he does for a living. Then there's Brian, the only one of the trio who is technically "coupled", though at this stage his relationship with longtime partner Daniel is devoid of all semblances of romance ... or sex ... and they have an "understanding" that they are both free to have outside sexual daliances, though no more than once with the same person. That rule is in serious danger of being broken, ever since Daniel met the sexy and romantic Eros, who makes him realize how much he is missing in the relationship.Read more ›
I do not want to give too much away, but when Ray had the accident and does not fight for his boyfriend, I was at the point of tears, but was not happy either.
If you are on the fence, jump over and buy the book...You will not be sad.

Miami Manhunt is the best gay fiction book I've read in ages. Johnny Diaz, with his flowing writing style, really makes you feel exactly what the characters are going through. Read morePublished on February 16, 2011 by Christopher C
it reads like a sophmore english project. The grammar and construction is repetitive, predictable, and doesn't add to the book. Read morePublished on March 1, 2009 by Bookworm
So many glowing reviews posted here, but I didn't feel the magic. This is one of the dullest novels I've ever read. Read morePublished on January 9, 2009 by Terran
I am disappointed with Mr. Diaz's second effort...very disappointed. I want to write a well rounded review, but even that feels like a waste of my time. Read morePublished on August 9, 2008 by P. Cooke
