+ Lucky Posted September 15, 2021 Share Posted September 15, 2021 The series that gay author Michael Nava has created featuring criminal defense attorney Henry Rios came out this spring, but I just discovered it. Lies With Man is, I believe, the eighth in the series, and I have read and enjoyed them all. The latest is about an initiative on the California ballot in 1986 to quarantine people with HIV, one strongly supported by the Christian right. Rios represents a gay man accused of bombing an evangelical church and killing the pastor. It's a good novel that takes us back to an era I had pretty much forgotten. Nava does a good job of creating characters, and his plot is pretty steady. In the course of the novel, Rios is given a love interest, a cute younger man, Josh. It makes for a nice subplot. There's also a hunky bad guy with a nine inch penis, if that sort of thing interests you! If you like gay-themed novels, the Rios series is pretty good. Nava himself seems like an interesting man. His bio says he lives in San Francisco and Palm Springs, but I have never encountered him. + WilliamM and + FrankR 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
