Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literary lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career. A career nearly as dead as the body he stumbles over in the woods. In a weirdly déjà vu replay of one of his own novels, he finds himself stranded in an isolated lodge full of frightened women?and not a lawman in sight. Except for J.X. Moriarity, former cop and bestselling novelist. The man with whom he shared a one-night stand - okay, maybe three - long ago. The man who wants to arrest him for murder. A ruthless, stalking killer, or a hot, handsome ex-lover. Which poses the greater danger? It's elementary, my dear Holmes!

Listener Opinions

    " Once again, Lanyon hits it out of the park ... though it's nothing less than I have come to expect from his writing. A solid murder mystery, well developed plot and characters; the m/m romance aspect plays second seat fiddle as always. Realistic and plausible down to the smallest detail, this one will probably have you second-guessing your attendance at the next writer conference or retreat. Especially if it's set out in the middle of Bum-Fuck, Egypt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/23/2014

    " I really really liked it. The main characters have great chemistry. JX is really sweet. Christopher is way whiny but he's got a great sense of humor. Very self-deprecating. Only one problem. I couldn't really get a good picture in my mind of what Christopher looks like. Can't wait till I get #2! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 1/9/2014

    " Excellent! I did think the ending was a little rushed and not as satisfying as it could have been, but overall, very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colette | 1/1/2014

    " I loved this, a classic Then There Were None trapped with a killer mystery. Witty, fun and entertaining. "

    " Lent - Kindle "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whiskey | 12/25/2013

    " As always a great read, although Holmes was a tad bitchy from time to time. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake Harrison | 12/23/2013

    " Funny, sexy, and totally not what I was expecting...Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joeyr | 12/12/2013

    " Okay, let's just say I do overidentify with one of the characters and leave it at that. Good, light mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SusieQ | 12/10/2013

    " Can't wait for the next one!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teddy | 12/9/2013

    " I enjoyed it, but not as much as the Adrien English books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janean | 12/6/2013

    " Read as part of my July Category Challenge. I think I am going to like reading more of this series. I was a bit apprehensive but in the end it turned out well. The twists and turns kept me guessing - just what a good mystery should do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Rupured | 11/16/2013

    " Slow to get going but once it did, a lot of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Finn Marlowe | 10/1/2013

    " Took a while to warm up to the MC's, but am now looking forward to reading the next one of the series. There were some really funny lines in this book and I hope Kit keeps his sense of humor in the next book(s). I found the ending a little weak, which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 farmwifetwo | 9/29/2013

    " Enjoyed it. Was silly, romantic, the sex scenes didn't overpower the story, and a good play on the cozy mystery style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dante | 9/12/2013

    " Hit all the right buttons for me. Mystery, romance and humour. I adore a story that makes me laugh. Holmes and Moriarty are a great pair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 7/17/2013

    " Very enjoyable; I chuckled quite frequently. One quibble: I do wish the ending hadn't been so abrupt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea M | 7/2/2013

    " Relatively good. Definitely scary at some parts...had to read with the lights on... anyway I found J.X. and Kit likeable. "

    " This was a great book. Funny, witty and a nice mystery. "
