Overview

Agatha Christie, move over! Hard-core sex and scandal meet in this brilliantly funny whodunit.
A seaside village, an English country house, a family of wealthy eccentrics and their equally peculiar servants, a determined detective — all the ingredients are here for a cozy Agatha Christie-style whodunit. But wait — Edward “Mitch” Mitchell is no Hercule Poirot, and The Back Passage is no Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Mitch is a handsome, insatiable 22-year-old hunk who never lets a clue stand in the way of a steamy encounter, whether it’s with the local constabulary, the house secretary, or his school chum and fellow athlete Boy Morgan, who becomes his Watson when they’re not busy boffing each other. When Reg Walworth is found dead in a cabinet, Sir James Eagle has his servant Weeks immediately arrested as the killer. But Mitch’s observant eye pegs more plausible possibilities: polysexual chauffeur Hibbert, queenly pervert Leonard Eagle, missing scion Rex, sadistic copper Kennington, even Sir James Eagle himself. Blackmail, police corruption, a dizzying network of spyholes and secret passages, watersports, and a nonstop queer orgy backstairs and everyplace else mark this hilariously hard-core mystery by a major new talent.

This was an outrageous romp! People who enjoyed the movie Gosford Park, or like Agatha Christie novels with a twist, will find this book naughty fun. A tongue-in-cheek mystery set in 1925, in England. Mitch is a handsome wannabe sleuth who's attempt to solve a mystery nets him sex around every corner! Witty, fast-paced. Read it in one night.

Mitch loves a good mystery. In Drekeham Hall, Mitch gets into the pants of a very athletic rower, Boy, and he has a murder mystery fall into his lap (no pun intended) in the same hallway as his encounter with Boy. Drekeham Hall is filled with an odd and a very wealthy and influential family. The body of Walworth is found by Boy's fiancé, and James' servant Meeks is arrested for the murder. Mitch will investigate with Boy to prove Meeks' innocence. And he will find that this 1920s English family is hiding all kinds of secrets, as well as their house servants. Mitch's sexual interviews start with the disgusting Leonard, to Hibbert the chauffeur, to Shipton the copper, and on and on. Until, all is answered by "The Back Passage."
