Overview

London, 1899. The beautiful people are dying…

A malevolent power is attacking London’s bright young things, and the only clue to what's happening is written in ancient Egyptian script. As ghost-hunter Simon Feximal and his companion Robert Caldwell investigate the mysterious deaths, the arrival in London of a notorious scholar-sorcerer seems to hold the answer to more than one of their problems.

A quiet break in London while en route to Egypt turns dramatic for Dr Percival Endicott Whyborne and his lover Griffin Flaherty when they encounter the hostile ghost-hunter. Feximal clearly suspects the worst of Whyborne – and his flirtatious sidekick seems to think a great deal too well of Griffin...

Jordan L Hawk’s heroes Whyborne and Griffin meet KJ Charles’ occult detectives from the Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal in a mystery that takes all four lovers through the decadent underworld of Victorian London in pursuit of an ancient and deadly evil.

    Terrific Paranormal Mystery

    This is a great crossover between Charles' and Hawk's Victorian era paranormal mystery/romance series. It is not necessary to have read the previous books, although it helps.

    Appealing characters, strong world-building, and a few hot sex scenes -- a perfect read while riding to work or waiting at the doctor's office. -- lyradora

    Love these two teams together!

    Cute, funny, sexy, exciting short story that left me wanting more. I have read the Griffin and Whyborne series by Jordan Hawk, but have not read Simon and Robert yet. Note the word, "yet". I will be looking into them soon. If you love Griffin and Whyborne, then you will love Simon and Robert.

    What a fun, invigorating romp of a novella. I picked this up because I'm a big fan of Jordan L. Hawk's Whyborne & Griffin series of Lovecraftian horror with gay central protagonists, and this story introduced me to KJ Charles' very different British supernatural detectives Feximal & Caldwell. The four characters are such different personality types that no one feels extraneous or side-lined. Each character brings different strengths to the case: Feximal's magickal abilities are different in style and execution from Whyborne's beginners' sorcery; Griffin's detection skills compliment Caldwell's authorial knack for details. The first meeting of the four starts out as the classic "heroes have to fight before they can team up," but the conflict this time is at least laid out with a logical backstory: Feximal is more aware of Whyborne's family history than Whyborne himself, and that history is not pretty. They do team up in short order (it's a novella, after all, so the conflict between the leads cannot drag out forever) but the interpersonal jealousies of two committed couples who are all attractive men with strong libidos and lots of ingrained insecurities hamper their ability to work well together until near to the case's close. I won't give away how the case is resolved; suffice to say the plot twists are sensible and of course the sexual tension runs high. (Both of these authors are known for writing very steamy sex scenes, after all.) On the strength of this, I do intend to seek out Charles' Feximal & Caldwell book and any other shorts with those characters. (For those keeping track of Whyborne & Griffin, this tale takes place when they are on their way to Egypt at the beginning of the novel Necropolis, the fourth book in the series.)

    Fun Crossover!

    A great introduction to two fantastic writers and their characters. Charles and Hawke's styles may differ, but both authors show great humor, witty banter, and hot men are still a supernaturally deadly triple threat! Would love to see these guys together in a longer story!

    Excellent

    Quite a good read! Great characters, interesting mystery, good action; a wonderful sequel to "Butterflies." Definitely recommend to any mystery/fantasy/gay romance readers.
