    1. This book started a little slow, a little dry and expository So I wasn t expecting the way it grew on me I finished it with a smile on my face, and a warm appreciation.Undercover Blues is an historical counter espionage story, set in England before the Second World War Tom and Rob are partners agents for a government department whose job is to identify and arrest those who threaten national security In this case, various secrets are being obtained by blackmail, and passed to Hitler s Germany A p [...]


    2. Undercover Blues is a variation on the two gay law enforcement agents fall in love with each other while posing undercover as a gay couple theme Which is a plot element I happen to like a lot and found here better executed than in many others I ve read with a similar story line For one, the premise made totally sense here the course of action was in conformity with its purpose and also with time and place of the story We re in pre WWII London here the roaring twenties are still lingering in many [...]


    3. While this story s plot is a good one, I d have to say that the execution of it was most bland I felt nothing for the two protagonists, or for their plight Too many characters, not enough action.I had hoped that I would have enjoyed this book so much , but I didn t And that s the way it goes.Three Stars


    4. Could have used a stronger editorial hand there were some odd grammar choices in this book that kept throwing me out of it Also I never really bought that the two MCs were in love with each other Seemed a matter of convenience for them both I did like the role reversal between their characters and their real personas, but the stakes never really seemed that high.
