At twenty-three and with a notorious case under his belt, Emory Rome has already garnered fame as a talented special agent for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. His career is leapfrogging over his colleagues, but the jumping stops when he’s assigned a case he fought to avoid – to investigate an eerie murder in the Smoky Mountain hometown he had abandoned. This mysterious case of a dead teen ice-skater once destined for the pros is just the beginning. In a small town bursting with envious friends and foes, Rome’s own secrets lie just below the surface. The rush to find the murderer before he strikes again pits Rome against artful private investigator, Jeff Woodard. The PI is handsome and smart, seducing Rome and forcing him to confront childhood demons, but Woodard has secrets of his own. He might just be the killer Rome is seeking.
This is the first book I've read by Mikel J. Wilson and I have to say that I was impressed by Murder on the Lake of Fire. The book was well written and it kept you on the edge of your seat. I will also say that the ending will be a little surprising. Here's my warning because apparently some people were not aware, this book is MM. So if you like romance and suspense and MM thrown in, this is a book I would recommend. That said, there were times when I thought the MM part of it was not interwoven seamlessly and it felt choppy here and there, but overall, I really enjoyed this book and give it 4 stars.

Here is my other warning, when I started reading, I had to double check that it was MM because the beginning makes it seem as if it could be something else. There are indeed MM elements to the book. The way it all started was perfect and added to the mystery and suspense. Again, this is 4 stars for me and I recommend you one click today.
