For ex-cop turned private investigator Cole McGinnis, each day brings a new challenge. Too bad most of them involve pain and death. Claudia, his office manager and surrogate mother, is still recovering from a gunshot, and Cole’s closeted boyfriend, Kim Jae-Min, suddenly finds his teenaged sister dumped in his lap. Meanwhile, Cole has his own sibling problems—most notably, a mysterious half brother from Japan whom his older brother, Mike, is determined they welcome with open arms.

As if his own personal dramas weren’t enough, Cole is approached by Madame Sun, a fortune-teller whose clients have been dying at an alarming rate. Convinced someone is after her customers, she wants the matter investigated, but the police think she’s imagining things. Hoping to put Sun’s mind at ease, Cole takes the case and finds himself plunged into a Gordian knot of lies and betrayal where no one is who they are supposed to be and Death seems to be the only card in Madame Sun’s deck

This is my first time reading the Cole McGinnis series by author Rhys Ford.  Dirty Laundry was not hard for me to follow even though it is the third book in this series.  I liked the humor and grittiness in this book.  That blended with the friendship and love that Cole and Jae have for each other kept me turning the pages.  Cole has a way of getting into trouble without even trying. Usually Jae is the one bailing him out of some jail. When Jae is in trouble Cole drops everything to be with his man. I could tell these characters have a long history together and really love each other. They would do anything for the other person.  
The flow of this story, is really good. I liked the character development too.  This allowed me to understand this book even though I have not read the rest. ( but I intend to now!)  I really did not  want this story to end. I cannot wait to see what is in store for Cole and Jae in the future.
