Gregory Ashe is an American author of Urban Fantasy, Horror, and Mystery series. He is a long-time Midwesterner who has lived in Chicago, Bloomington, and Saint Louis is his current home. Besides reading and crafting stories for his fans, Gregory is also an educator. While he loves reading all sorts of genres, his heart finds home reading mystery and speculative fiction books. He once kept a list of his favorite reads, but since the list changes so often, he has since given up. Gregory is always looking for recommendations, so it’s important to send him a message if you have something in mind.

Pretty Pretty Boys is the first book in Hazard and Somerset book series by Gregory Ashe. It features detectives Emery Hazard and John-Henry Somerset, based in Missouri. Each book in the series presents a standalone mystery while contributing to an overarching plot that unfolds over time.

Emery Hazard reluctantly returns to his hometown after losing his job as a police detective in Saint Louis. He takes a job in the local police department, where he grew up, driven by a need to confront old demons, settle scores, and confront haunting memories. His new partner is John Henry Somerset, who was part of the group of guys that tormented Hazard throughout high school. Hazard is determined to uncover what Somerset knows about the death of his high school boyfriend, Jeff.

Their partnership leads to a new murder case, and Hazard strives to maintain a strictly professional relationship with Somerset. However, solving a murder requires effective communication, and Hazard must reconcile the image of Somers as a teenager with the grown man who is now his partner.

John-Henry Somerset is burdened with regrets, and Hazard is a major one. Estranged from his wife and daughter, living in a small, intolerant, and discriminatory town has taken its toll, exacerbated by his heavy drinking. Nevertheless, Somers is a charismatic individual, and even Hazard is drawn to him. As they investigate the murder case, Hazard must do the one thing he never thought possible—trust John Henry Somerset.

This book marks the beginning of a challenging journey for Hazard and Somers. Returning to his hometown stirs up painful memories and unresolved issues from his past. The town is not the healthiest place for Hazard, with an increase in crimes against the LGBT community and the emergence of a hate group. Although the exact reasons for Hazard’s departure from his previous job remain undisclosed, he is immediately plunged into a new murder case.

Somers has been a part of Hazard’s life for as long as he can remember, and their history is marked by the torment Hazard endured in high school. While Somers regrets his past actions and seeks to apologize, Hazard is unwilling to hear him out and insists on a strictly professional relationship. Yet, beneath the surface, there is an undeniable spark of attraction between them.

First published in 2021, Relative Justice is the first book in Hazard and Somerset: Arrows in the Hand series. It’s a delectable blend of the familiar and more in the dysfunctional city of Wahredua. Gregory Ashe is back with his beloved detective duo, Emery Hazard and John-Henry Somerset.
Private detective Hazard and Chief of Police Somers have just returned from their honeymoon, greeted by a surprising sight: a teenage boy named Colt waiting on their doorstep. The bombshell he drops is equally astonishing—Colt claims to be Hazard’s biological son. This revelation quickly becomes town gossip, adding another layer of complexity to the newlywed couple, both well-known in the city. Hazard, the mayor’s son, is openly gay, and Colt’s existence challenges the narrative of his past.

In true Ashe fashion, before Hazard and Somers can fully grasp this personal upheaval, they are called upon by the Sheriff’s Department to assist in solving a murder case. The victim was found dead in the woods, and the only clues were his footprints. The story then delves into a gripping and captivating mystery filled with red herrings, intriguing motives, and a dark exploration of human nature—a hallmark of Ashe’s writing. Amidst the murder investigation, a scared and lonely teenager, Colt, is trying to find his place in the world, and his two fathers, regardless of blood ties, are determined to protect him from harm.

The narrative may appear complex, but it is skillfully balanced, allowing each storyline to develop without feeling rushed or underdeveloped. The pacing is just right, and Ashe masterfully weaves multiple story threads together. In addition to the mystery and the Colt storyline, readers can enjoy engaging cameos from Hazard’s mother, who proves to be a wonderful grandmother and helper, as well as Theo Stratford, now Dr. Stratford, a high school teacher.

Relative Justice features a well-structured plot and a satisfying conclusion, intricately entwined with the personal growth and challenges faced by Hazard and Somers. This addition to the series maintains a sense of realism and welcomes readers into the next intriguing chapter of their lives.
The Strangest Forms is the first book in the Adventures of Holloway Holmes series by Gregory Ashe. Jack Moreno is struggling to keep his life on track, especially after a devastating car crash leaves his father incapacitated. Jack drops out of school and takes care of his father’s custodial work at a school located high in the Wasatch Mountains, which caters to troubled teens. Everything seems to be going somewhat okay until when Jack discovers the lifeless body of Sarah Watson, who happens to be a descendant of the famous Watson.
In an uneasy partnership with Holmes, Jack embarks on a race against time to uncover the truth about what happened to Sarah Watson. This journey leads them to confront a modern-day Moriarty, expose hidden secrets, and delve into an unsolved murder that took place at the Walker School over twenty years ago. As they work together, Jack and Holmes must grapple with their own concealed truths, which threaten the fragile trust they have managed to build.

This story revolves around the joint efforts of Jack and Holmes as they strive to identify the killer before they become the killer’s next targets. However, both young men are harboring secrets of their own, which could jeopardize the tenuous bond they have formed.
