Snow & Winter

Curiosity kills. Or, in the case of antique shop owner and amateur sleuth Sebastian Snow, curiosity leads to dead bodies. With the reluctant help of his boyfriend, NYPD homicide detective Calvin Winter, and armed with his magnifying glass and understanding of Victorian America, Sebastian sets out to solve the murders he keeps stumbling upon.

 

Sebastian's antiquing knowledge becomes a critical key to every investigation he gets tangled up in with Calvin. And with the two at one another's side through thick and thin, the partnership between Snow and Winter evolves into something that'll last long after the cases are closed.

When a series of crimes set against the backdrop of film and television requires Rory to go undercover, he quickly becomes a part of Marion’s world.
