“You don’t legislate love, you legislate property.” Above all this is a love story, and these words resonated in Jere Myles’ first book. In the final book of his trilogy, Myles retains the legacy and ideals that psychiatrist, Dr. Mieko Mitchell, held closely and passed to Jonathan Rose. In the previous two books, Jere Myles has provided an education as well as a commentary on gay marriage. “Murder on Michigan Avenue” leaves little to the imagination as the murder mystery series crashes to an unbelievable climax as he examines how two men in love.

This is a love story as seminal as any you will ever read on the right to choose who you love and who you want to marry. Jon is on a personal crusade to resolve issues of love, live and let live, as he and others discover “Who was behind the door?”

“Murder on Michigan Avenue” begins with an unsuspecting revelation that puts readers into the minds of characters as various stories unfold to clarify as Myles speeds you to an unforgettable ending. Questions are finally answered. Deep secrets are uncovered. The author wrenches your heart as Mieko and Jon’s story finds an unexpected ending. You’re on a roller coaster of a ride before Myles brings you back to the doorbell chime that ended the last book. Myles teases you with revelations that are haunting, yet necessary for readers to empathize fully with the characters introduced in the previous two books.

All of the principal characters are back for an encore in this third book: Jon and Eileen, the police lieutenant who botched the investigation into Mieko’s murder, and the pontifical Father Francis, a priest who is as handsome as a model. All are here seeking justice. New characters like lawyer Geri Legg, the former NFL star who’s gay and an Agatha Christi matriarch sleuth add twists that keep you reading as Myles seamlessly interweaves them into the fabric of the story. There is an essence of 'Six degrees of Separation' that stuns you as characters provide parts to an ending none of them suspected or expected while they come face to face with demons none of them realized they had.

Almost prophetic, this story could have been ripped off the front page in your town. Whether or not you are for or against gay marriage, this book will make you think about it. It will make you deal with the question, “Can you legislate love?”
