Pressure Head

Pressure Head wouldn't have been the title I would have put to this story because it doesn't really have anything to do with it. Even with the strange title the story was fairly decent just a little drawn out when it could have been faster paced. I liked the attraction between Tom and Phil, but it was slow going. I do recommend this book for the decent read it is.

Whenever the police call Tom Paretski is headed for a case. He finds missing people or bodies. Tom's normal job though is working as a plumber. When he runs into Phil Morrison at one of the murder scenes he’s not too happy. Phil was one of Tom's crushes during high school and the reason he has a bum hip. Phil asks for Tom's help in proving the innocence of the victim's boyfriend who also happens to be an old friend of both of theirs. Tom decides to help even though he's not sure of Phil's intentions. With their attraction heating up so is the investigation of the murder. Can Phil and Tom solve the murder before they themselves become victims or will both men find the killer the hard way?

Book Blurb for Pressure Head

Some secrets are better left hidden.

To most of the world, Tom Paretski is just a plumber with a cheeky attitude and a dodgy hip, souvenir of a schoolboy accident. The local police keep his number on file for a different reason—his sixth sense for finding hidden things.

When he’s called in to help locate the body of a missing woman up on Nomansland Common, he unexpectedly encounters someone who resurrects a host of complicated emotions. Phil Morrison, Tom’s old school crush, now a private investigator working the same case. And the former bully partly responsible for Tom’s injury.

The shocks keep coming. Phil is now openly gay, and shows unmistakable signs of interest. Tom’s attraction to the big, blond investigator hasn’t changed—in fact, he’s even more desirable all grown up. But is Phil’s interest genuine, or does he only want to use Tom’s talent?

As the pile of complicated evidence surrounding the woman’s murder grows higher, so does the heat between Tom and Phil. But opening himself to this degree exposes Tom’s heart in a way he’s not sure he’s ready for…while the murderer’s trigger finger is getting increasingly twitchy.

Warning: Contains a flirtatious plumber with hidden talents, a cashmere-clad private investigator with hidden depths, and an English village chock full of colourful characters with plenty to hide.
