Title: The Truth of Yesterday
Series: A Killian Kendall Mystery: Book Four
Author: Josh Aterovis
Publisher: MLR Press
Length: 498 Pages
At a Glance: Once again, I really liked the double-plotted mystery in The Truth of Yesterday> and how they connected. In Killian Kendall, Josh Aterovis has created a character who at times seems he can handle anything, but there are flaws too.

Blurb: Killian is thrilled when his first real case takes him on a surveillance trip to Washington D.C. with his boyfriend Micah. But Micah’s past comes back to haunt them in a big way. Killian is stunned by what he learns, and even more shocked to hear about the murder of Micah’s former lover, Paul. The truth threatens to tear them apart, but at the same time, Killian finds himself drawn to find Paul’s killer.
Meanwhile, he’s also been asked to investigate an old friend whose behavior has changed radically over the last few months. Killian is worried Jake may be involved in something dangerous…and he has no idea how right he is.
Entering into the perilous and sometimes grim world of male escorts, Killian discovers that things are seldom what they seem and everyone has a past.
The truth of yesterday becomes a lie tomorrow.
Review: Killian Kendall is now a freshman at Pemberton University in Maryland and is in a developing relationship with Micah Gerber. He also still works for Novak Private Investigators. When Shane Novak hands Killian his first real case, that of a cheating husband, Killian heads to Washington DC, and Micah, knowing the DC area, reluctantly agrees to go with Killian to guide him around.
Once Killian has concluded his investigation of the cheating husband, he and Micah find they have some free time, so Micah takes Killian out to a place he used to frequent. And some odd things occur when they run into some of Micah’s old acquaintances. When Micah finds his ex, Paul Flynn, has been killed during a robbery, he hires Killian to investigate. But along with it comes some questions when Killian realizes what Micah had done in his past profession. As Killian gets more involved in Paul’s murder investigation, he finds himself face-to-face with some dangerous individuals. He also finds himself rescuing not only a friend but a troublesome young man.
Once again, I really liked the double-plotted mystery in The Truth of Yesterday> and how they connected. In Killian Kendall, Josh Aterovis has created a character who at times seems he can handle anything, but there are flaws too. He is eighteen, going on nineteen, and sometimes his hormones get the better of him, although he seems to have strong feelings for Micah. Killian has to decide what’s important in his relationship with Micah, and the choices aren’t easy. To really get a handle on this character and his series, I highly suggest reading the books in order. The cast of characters is outstanding, they play their parts well, and they are always around for Killian—through thick and thin.
