Why read it?

1 author picked The Long Call as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I love this book because it’s a fascinating portrait of a gay cop that focuses more on his background growing up in a religious community than on his sexuality. The TV series does a better job of connecting the two, but I’m delighted that a best-selling author has dipped her toe into this genre. It’s also a cleverly-plotted mystery that kept me guessing.

From Neil's list on mysteries with gay cops.
