Stanley. Stephen E. “The Big Boys’ Detective Agency: A Jesse Ashworth Mystery”, Create Space, 2011.
Changing Jobs, Changing Life
Former teacher, Jesse Ashworth and Tim Mallory, former police chief buy the Bigg Security Company and no sooner than they do then strange cases come to them. This is the beginning of their lives as private detectives and they become known as The Big Boys Detective Agency. Come to find out that the Turner Art Museum in Portland, Maine has had some very shady goings on and the Big Boys have been asked to check it out. As they investigate a haunting they also discover a missing person and a few bodies.
This book makes up part of the Jesse Ashworth series and even though I am not a mystery reader, per se, I do intend checking the others out. The books are set in Bath, Maine and I can only suspect that the author knows the area well as his descriptions are so well done. Even though the main characters are gay and the books fit into the gay literary genre, there are so sex scenes.
