Overview

The road back to bestsellerdom can be deadly.

Holmes & Moriarity, Book 1

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!

    Great and Hilarious Story

    A great mystery that keeps you wondering through the whole story, and even a little worried about the outcome. The overall story is one of the funniest stories of this genre I've ever come across too. I highly reccomend this book.

    Highly entertaining

    A gay writer attends a conference where murder ensues. The humor is hysterical. A classic 'gather everyone in the library and manipulate a confession from the murderer' tale.

    Awesome!

    A friend had recommended this book to me as I'm a big fan of Josh Lanyon and I wasn't disappointed! I really enjoyed the banter between Kit and JX, looking forward to reading the next books in this series.

    The start of something good

    I read this after finishing Mr. Lanyon's The Adrien English series. If you were like me and enjoyed Adrien English, then there won't be much to dislike about this series! Christopher is a 39 year old, once-popular author of a popular series staring an old lady spinster. Without going into too much detail, Christopher has had a rough ten years, which doesn't get any easier when he met an old (weekend) lover from his past.

    Lanyon does a good job spinning the mystery story in this novel. I felt it was actually better, more intricate than his earlier works. I love Christopher's character and J.X., and even some of the side characters. I think the only criticism I have with this novel is the abrupt ending!

    more from this reviewer

    Read it in one sitting

    A good story with some m/m romance in it...unlike some stories that are about m/m encounters, with some story to them. This is a fun book to read on the beach, or on the bus, or prety well anywhere.
