Overview

Don’t talk to strangers, young man—especially the dead ones.

It’s the Roaring Twenties. Skirts are short, crime is rampant and booze is in short supply. Prohibition has hit Little Egypt, where newspaperman David Flynn has come to do a follow-up story on the Herren Massacre. The massacre isn’t the only news in town though. Spiritualist medium Julian Devereux claims to speak to the dead—and he charges a pretty penny for it.

Flynn knows a phoney when he sees one, and he’s convinced Devereux is as fake as a cigar store Indian. But the reluctant attraction he feels for the deceptively soft, not-his-type Julian is as real as it gets.

Suddenly Julian begins to have authentic, bloodstained visions of a serial killer, and the cynical Mr. Flynn finds himself willing to defend Julian with not only his life, but his body.

I once again enjoyed the vintage, paranormal behind this mystery. Passion, skepticism, drama, weariness abounds in this tale. Once again my only flaw is that it's just not long enough. Josh Lanyon creates characters and plots that just latch on to my heart, soul, and sets my imagination into overdrive that I just don't want to say goodbye when the last page hits.

Strange, romantic, and unforgettable. The ending made me gasp.

This second novel in the five-novel saga of the romantic trials and tribulations of amateur sleuth Adrien English and LAPD Detective Jake Riordan is my favorite. For the first time, Jake is away from his cop buddies, and doesn't have to be closeted and totally uptight. As always, Josh Lanyon's mystery, which sets the story in motion, is first rate, and the characters' interactions are tender and sweet. This rapport isn't achieved again until the very end of "The Dark Tide," the fifth, and final, novel in the series. Read ém in order, but I'm betting you'll like this one the best; even more than the award-winning "The Hell You Say," the third novel in the series. Enjoy a brief respite in the tumultuous English/Riordan sturm und drang; you'll be glad you did.
