Patrick OBrien is about to give new meaning to the phrase gay business tycoon. Hes turned his small bar business into an internationally renowned design and licensing agency and now hes going public with the intention of turning his brand and the ideas everyone else is going to give him, into a multi-million dollar media empire. The fact that hes a nasty individual who no one in his right mind would trust, hasnt stopped his empire growing.
That is, until he falls to his death from a second storey window... just minutes after his husband Toby Gibbs sold the vast portion of their shares to the mysterious Maxima Hedge Fund.When Holmes’ most important client informs him that he has been the advisor behind Patricks company going public and both Inspector Pomfrett - now with the City of London Economic Crimes Unit - and Detective Garrigues – lumbered with investigating the untimely demise of Patrick – wanting his help, theres nothing he can do, but throw himself whole-heartedly into an investigation marked with quite a few people who wanted Patrick dead.Watson struggles to provide Holmes with his usual back-up as there are problems closer to home that need to be resolved forcing Holmes to seek help from someone whom he hasnt seen in years.Holmes and Watson are back on board for their sixth adventure with the usual round of cocktails, investigations, gossip and of course hot sex.
But why are they squeezing in an appointment at the Linley furniture boutique? And why are the staff at Diva wearing Leis on Fijian night? These ... and many more important questions will be answered if you just read on.
