Overview

Giving screwball mystery a whole deadly new meaning.

Holmes & Moriarity, Book 2

A murderous fall down icy stairs is nearly the death of Anna Hitchcock, the much-beloved "American Agatha Christie" and Christopher Holmes's former mentor. Anna's plea for him to host her annual winter writing retreat touches all Kit's sore spots-traveling, teaching writing classes, and separation from his new lover, J.X. Moriarity.

For J.X., Kit's cancellation of yet another romantic weekend is the death knell of a relationship that has been limping along for months. But that's just as well, right? Kit isn't ready for anything serious and besides, Kit owes Anna far too much to refuse.

Faster than you can say "Miss Marple wears boxer shorts", Kit is snooping around Anna's elegant, snowbound mansion in the Berkshires for clues as to who's trying to kill her. A tough task with six amateur sleuths underfoot. Six budding writers with a tangled web of dark undercurrents running among them.

Slowly, Kit gets the uneasy feeling that the secret may lie between the pages of someone's fictional past. Unfortunately, a clever killer is one step ahead. And it may be too late for J.X. to ride to the rescue.

Warning: Contains one irascible, forty-year-old mystery writer who desperately needs to get laid, one exasperated thirty-something ex-cop only too happy to oblige, an isolated country manor that needs the thermostat cranked up, various assorted aspiring and perspiring authors, and a merciless killer who may have read one too many mystery novels.

    Highly Recommended--Second in the series is even better than the first

    The first book in this series, Someone Killed His Editor, was a fun ride and great introduction to Christopher and J.X. It was also a good mystery. This novel, the second in the Holmes & Moriarity, is a much deeper look into their relationship and explores with insight and really hot sex why Christopher is having trouble committing to J.X. Plus, the mystery in this book is very well constructed and the clues are there all along, so when the reveal happens, it provides great satisfaction.

    This novel is darker than the first. The stakes are higher for all involved. It totally delivers. Can't wait for the third!

    Another entertaining episode

    Kit attends a writer's workshop in Connecticut where snow, murder, intrigue and humor ensue. These really are very witty.

    Very enjoyable

    Since this is the second novel in the Holmes and Moriarity series, there isn't much to say. The mechanics from the first book is the same here. Basically, if you liked book 1, then book 2 will be right up there for you. The story is told from Christopher's perspective. The story has more development in terms of Christopher's relationship with J.X., including coming to terms with his own feelings. Just what I love: mystery, sexy men and lots of emotions!

    Just like with the first novel, this one kind of ends abruptly as well. So take the last few sentences slowly and savor it for the next entry into this great series.

    Excellent!

    Josh Lyman knocks another one out of the ball park. The new series of Holmes and Moriarty is better each time. Keep them coming Josh!

    Great read!

    I agree. The first was really good. This, the second, is even better. These characters are fun to follow.
