The Case of the Boy in Blue


Amanda Meuweissen




Leonard Quill, private investigator, never expected a case to walk through his door quite like this one, complete with murder, a frame job, blackmail, and powerful players, especially coming from a man with bright blue eyes behind his glasses, a crooked bow tie, and an impossible smile.

My review:


4.25 stars



“The Case of the Boy in Blue” by Amanda Meuwissen follows private investigator Leonard Quill as he takes on one of the most dangerous criminals in the city, partly due to an attractive blue-eyed man who has unexpected depths. Too bad they might not survive long enough to explore the attraction that threatens to derail the case before they finish it.


This gay mystery romance novella provides a deliciously noir atmosphere with several delightful twists on the stereotypical elements of this genre. The author skillfully evokes the gritty atmosphere of detective stories that feature a PI and his trusty assistant/sidekick, and the story has great twists that keep the reader invested in the action. This is a short tale, so things are necessarily compressed, but hopefully this is only the start of a fun series.
