Hope & Despair
Two strangers meet over a bloody, dismembered body…but can they find the killer before the killer finds them?
When Noah Blain opens his front door, his mind is still on the aging mother he has just helped move into assisted care. But on the threshold, a horror scene awaits.
Blood and body parts are strewn through Noah’s hallway and there is no one else in sight. At least, until Oliver Thaddeus shows up.
Having escaped California after losing his job as a private investigator, Oliver has returned to Denver, Colorado after blackmailing his ex-lover (and ex-boss) for the cool sum of $14.5M.
Eager to start his own PI agency and work crimes once more, Oliver offers Noah a place to stay and full use of his detective team to help solve the mystery of the brutal homicide.
But when it is discovered that Noah was the actual target of the killing, Oliver and Noah must go into lockdown under police guard until the perpetrator has been found.
Forced together in tragic and dangerous circumstances, complex feelings start to emerge between the two young men as their emotional scars surface. Oliver is strikingly beautiful and familiar only with being used. Noah is mildly agoraphobic and reluctant to open up. Tenderness is new – and terrifying – for them both.
But what secrets in Noah’s past have caused him to make a deadly enemy? And can Oliver’s team find the killer before their lives go from hope to despair?
