Eric Slater has returned home after retiring from the Navy where he served considerable time as an NCO apparently somewhere around a Master Chief level in the Military Police, often working in affairs concerning Naval Intelligence and closely with civilian police. He is living in the home left to him by his loving mother who had died some time earlier. His mother for years had performed housecleaning chores for the mostly very wealthy residents of “Point Road”, a relatively short distance away. During summers when school was out and he was eleven and she could not find, or was unwilling to pay for a babysitter, he often accompanied his mother when employed. He sat in the car all day playing games and/or reading comic books. Eventually a few of her customers noticed him and invited him inside to read where it was cooler. One of these had a son a year younger than he. This David Templeton was a lonely boy with whom he formed a close relationship and soon he was spending most of his time at the Templeton home. The boy was gay but neither of the children were aware of the matter at the time. They were just two youngsters who grew into a closer relationship because they were too awkward for anyone to want on their team when games needing sides were chosen. The relationship was placed pretty much on hold during the school year because Davey attended private school while Eric’s was public. During summers, the relationship resumed and strengthened as the years went on but did not have any homosexual aspects. Eric was completely enchanted by Angie Jefferies who had a younger sister Maggie who was mostly ignored and otherwise a nuisance. The story begins to unfold years later when Davey is found dead in their barn, seemingly having hung himself. Angie does not believe it was suicide, Eric begins employing the investigational powers learned during his years as an MP, and the reader is taken on an intriguing journey through a complicated plot where presentation of more detail simply would be a disservice to the prospective reader.
Discussion/Conclusion: A sensitive, partially qualified ‘detective’, caught in an investigation involving an old love, old acquaintances and a budding new love interest. The tale is an often amusing, occasionally poignant, purposely slightly sexist, suspenseful investigation of the darkest of criminal activity that involves closely related family members. A unique plot, interesting characters skillfully handled and suspenseful action throughout.
He always tries to imagine what it’s like to be in someone else's shoes. He is great at forming a network of interaction between the characters were they organically influence each other to direct his story to the desired outcome.
He makes compelling reading of the investigative mission of what caused Davey's death. He gives many possibilities and a web of entanglement to highten the mystery.
It "Turned out he was right, it's where he died. He flies all over the world, all these dangerous locations, lives in Miami, which isn't known for being safe, then he ends up dead in his own backyard. What does that tell you?" A contemporary story tinted with the underworld of clubbing, gay bars, sex slave trading.
Davey's mother hired Slater to look into her son's death, He acted as private a investigator. Miami was were Davey worked and lived as a gay man. On the surface most testified as him being a good guy...but there were so many rumors There were many interrogations and life in Miami picturing the environment where the story plays off.
Was he was dealing drugs?
Was trade going on all the time, all over the world. Women, kids, girls and boys sold like livestock to the highest bidder?
Was it a guilt ?
Angela Jeffries, Maggie's sister, who assists Slater in the investigation to Davey death, as the title reveals, plays and major role in this story and there seems to be a dangerous guy operating around Davey. There are enough subplots wedged into a whole sicko scenario.
The author leaves you guessing , every turn he takes, stacks up as a possibility, but the truth tangles on a string, ready to be plucked by thorough examination of the web of information gathered.
The author is good at hiding clues, letting them dovetail with true facts, little by little.
Eric Slater and Maggie will be back. Wonderful reading material.

The cover of the book is okay, but it is a little more romancy looking than what I generally prefer, which is why I started with book 2. Though My Sister’s Detective is technically part romance, it is so much more than that, to me it’s more mystery than anything else. Plus, the romance parts of the book are tactfully done and not overdone.
The book is also very funny! Not so that it takes over the book, but good humor is woven through the story, making me chuckle periodically as I read. This is a fun light, mystery and perfect for a weekend read when you just need to escape for a bit.
After finishing this book, I am becoming even a bigger fan of T.J. Jones’ writing. I am pleased to report that there is a third book in the series, plus another series altogether called Callie’s Secret.
