Editorial Reviews

Dirt and Sin - Rhys Ford
The suspense in this novella is tight and the reader is taken on a short, sweet ride through murder and intrigue, culminating with an action sequence most Hollywood films would envy.

How did I miss this Josh Lanyon novella before? The mystery may not be as in depth or central to the story as many of Lanyon's mysteries but it's still there and enjoyable. Probably a little more suspense than actual mystery. Some might not care for the insta-love between Ryo and Kai but since they have had interaction at a club even if it's brief and only memorable for Ryo, I don't really think it falls into the insta-love category but even if it did, sometimes it happens and it fits for the scenario the characters find themselves in. A great little tale that I am glad to add to my Josh Lanyon shelf.

I read "Blood Red Butterfly" as part of Lanyon's M/M Mystery box set. This was my least favorite of all the titles in that collection. There is nothing inherently wrong with the story; it's sexy and exciting, and the characterization is strong. I really, really liked Ryo; I would love more stories about him. But I had a really hard time with Kai; he was too prickly and snarky. I only started to like him towards the end of the story. An entertaining enough read, but, if you are new to Lanyon's work, I recommend the Adrien English series instead, or "Don't Look Back," or "The White Knight/The Dark Horse" duology. -- lyradora

Another wonderful story from Josh Lanyon. It has suspense, danger, lust and love and is beautifully written.
