From the acclaimed author of Miami Manhunt and Boston Boys Club, comes a witty, new, warmhearted novel of friendship, familia, and finding a place to call home-even in a city where it's almost impossible to get an authentic Cuban sandwich. Carlos Martin is twenty-seven years old and ready for a change. Popular college professor Gabriel Galan has a job he adores in Boston, a hot young lover, and a buddy who goes along on pub crawls and Star Trek nights alike. But Gabriel wants more. Listen to books in audio format instead of reading.

This is not a paperback. It is a hardbound trade edition with full undamaged dusk jacket, no rips, stains, marking on inside text. Why get a paper back when you can have a hardbound. Great gift and fun page-turner for those long winter nights

So many glowing reviews posted here, but I didn't feel the magic. This is one of the dullest novels I've ever read. With the characters' lifestyles and location, you'd think their lives would be interesting. But a "day in the life" as the approach goes here isn't at all gripping.

First off, there's nothing sexy or even particularly romantic going on, let alone guys just having fun. But I do recall one character who fancies himself in love dealing with love in terms of "lust" which is hardly the same thing. However, the character (an overaged boytoy who is as tired of his partner in life as his partner is of him) seems too immature and naive to be believed, and unfortunately hasn't remained sufficiently physically attractive to please his partner.

Two other characters looking for love are a local tv personality and a film critic, and we spend too much time on their jobs with them. As a reader, you end up reading reviews of imaginary as well as RL films, and with the on-air personality who profiles local happenings, and not being familiar with Miami, I can't speak to the locales or organizations he gives mention of, yet a familiarity with Miami shouldn't be a prerogative for reading the novel.

I'm writing the review and realizing I have totally forgotten all the details surrounding the fourth lead, but I think there was one. However, all the lead characters take turns in narration, with each chapter devoted to telling a segment of the story from a character's POV, and all of these guys all sound alike, speaking with the author's presumed voice, though that shouldn't be the case as their backgrounds are all different. As for the minutia, if you find yourself fascinated by every detail of every humdrum thought they have, this is great, but if you don't want to be laden with inanities, this is not so great. The only thing it shows us is how each character (ourselves?) is totally obsessed with self and pay lip service to others. But I don't think the message here is that profound, especially as the novel reads like it was written pretty easily, over the course of a weekend, and isn't meant to be a depressant, either.

A trend that bothers me, which is repeated here, is to have an author have his characters in the present novel praising the author's prior work, which is either a lot of ego at work or the latest marketing ploy, which I hope dies out soon.

The author's second novel (after "Boston Boys Club") covers a subject that its target gay male readership can definitely identify with: the problem of looking for love, and knowing what it looks and feels like when you find it.

Ray Martinez is one of three late-twentysomething gay friends in Miami, who meet up every Friday night to update each other on their week, as well as check out the new faces and bodies, at Score, a popular nightspot. Ray is the movie critic for the Miami News, lives with his lively mutt Gigli (named for the particularly memorable - and not in a good way - JoLo/Afleck film he reviewed), and is somewhat jealous of his straight twin brother, Rasco, whom he feels he is more respected by his Cuban-American family, as well as due to the fact that he is soon to be married. Ted is a reporter and "lifestyle" show host on a local television station, and, although he enjoys the recognition and adoration that status brings to him, feels a bit intimidated by the buff beauties who make up the Miami gay singles scene, and longs to meet someone who will be attracted to who he is, rather that he does for a living. Then there's Brian, the only one of the trio who is technically "coupled", though at this stage his relationship with longtime partner Daniel is devoid of all semblances of romance ... or sex ... and they have an "understanding" that they are both free to have outside sexual daliances, though no more than once with the same person. That rule is in serious danger of being broken, ever since Daniel met the sexy and romantic Eros, who makes him realize how much he is missing in the relationship.

Alternating chapters between the three friends, the book takes you through both high and low points in their current lives, as well as exploring whether one has to compromise your true desires to find a workable relationship with another person. Extemely well written light novel, with likeable characters who grow emotionally throughout the book. I give it a Score of a full five stars out of five.

Ok, I finished Miami Manhunt. OH MY GOD!!!!! This was an amazing read. I did not know how Johnny Diaz was going to out do himself after Boston Boys Club, but he did. I really loved all the characters, but really loved Ted and Ray. Brian and Eros, I felt I was left hanging somewhat, but that is just my view point.

I do not want to give too much away, but when Ray had the accident and does not fight for his boyfriend, I was at the point of tears, but was not happy either.

If you are on the fence, jump over and buy the book...You will not be sad.

Johnny Diaz is a great author. I have read all his books published to date, and am waiting for the next! Very realistic characters, settings, and plots. Definitely something to add to your collection.

it reads like a sophmore english project. The grammar and construction is repetitive, predictable, and doesn't add to the book. While the stories and characters are interesting, the overuse of adjectives flatens the whole feel. i wanted to like it more.
