SynopsisPaul Solomon is a homicide detective in Baltimore, a city with a high murder rate and a complicated relationship between the police and the citizens they are sworn to protect.
He’s also a gay man who has been out on the job since he first joined. Being out on a tough police force hasn’t always been easy, but living with integrity is important to him.
Paul’s love life becomes as tumultuous as his job with the demise of his relationship of eight years. While dealing with the emotional and physical upheaval in his personal life, a case comes across his desk that hits a little too close to home—the murder of two gay teenagers.
Paul and his partner, Tim Cullen, must solve the double homicide, and Paul has to find a way to move on from his failed relationship.

You have to love a good mystery and Keelan Ellis's Good Boys is pretty great. I never know with mysteries if I'll figure it out too soon and if I do will I get bored. I had a lot of ideas as I was reading and some were right and some weren't so it kept me on my toes.
Paul is a character that I sort of felt terribly bad for from the start. He's been living with his ex for a while. Their 8 year relationship fizzled out a long time ago. I mean Paul was sleeping in the guest room for a good long while and they were "sex" buddies. Now Andy, the ex, wants Paul out and so he's moving out.
His partner, Tim, takes pity on him and lets him bunk with him. I really adored Tim. He's a sweetheart and a true friend. One that we all should have at least one of. He's also great for Paul. But he's straight and pining for their Captain.
When two teen boys are murdered and Paul and Tim are sent to the case this is where the mystery begins. It was really sad. Two boys, gay, friends, great kids... dead. What happened? What went wrong? It began to build and build and weave itself nicely.
In between this we are following Paul and his personal dilemmas. From "This isn't happening David," to "No okay yes, Owen."
The mystery is constructed well. Good clues, perfect suspense. It's not a saturated love story. This is ultimately a mystery and really that's what the focus stays on. You will get sucked in.
Very engaging and entertaining.
