Mar 22, 2013

This is the first book about amateur sleuth Adrien English. About 222 pages in large print, author Josh Lanyon introduces the reader to a bookstore owner, aspiring writer who's one-time best friend turned employee is brutally murdered in the back alley outside his home. It's up to English to connect the dots, to discover the connection between the death of his friend and dark threats he's been getting of late.

Josh Lanyon spins a simple tale of innocence, of childhood secrets and lies in a tightly framed mystery. Fatal Shadows is a solid mystery, an easy, quick read that urges the reader forward to the truth, with the hint of a relationship budding between English and closeted detective Riordan. The last 50 pages will keep you from closing the book's cover until the truth is revealed.

Neet I love your review! I read this book eons ago when it was in paperback. I just started reading the series again on my kindle and I'm hooked again.

Jon Thanks! It's so, so easy to get re-hooked when reading them again. I am sure Josh would be pleased to hear this.
