*4.5* stars.
This is the second book I have read in 2019 featuring Dan Sharp, a gay private detective. He specializes in finding lost persons. Jeffrey Round’s mystery novels have won Lambda awards, for books which celebrate or explore LGBT themes. His mystery novels give gay readers a chance to be represented in crime fiction, but would give most everyone some insight into the gay community while reading this gripping, thrilling mystery. The author builds suspense and tension, while presenting

I usually take breaks from my 2020 Arthur Ellis entries reading project to read the latest releases by favourite authors and this book is the latest release in Jeffrey Round’s fine Dan Sharp series. I sure am glad I read it because I found it a very enjoyable read and it possibly ranks as one of the best yet in the series. Although this book has a great main plot and lot’s of suspects and the usual Dan Sharp persistent investigation and some really surprising twists it also is very character ...more

This is the story of the kidnapping of a four-year old autistic boy. The two women who are his mothers and his biological father are beside themselves with worry. They go to Private Investigator Dan Sharp with their story and that they have received a very odd request from the kidnapper. He wants a “donation,” instead of asking for a ransom. Later he says he demands a million dollars.

Dan is on the case. With the assistance of his boyfriend Nick, who is a detective with the local police,

Dan Sharp series is a MUST read for all gay mystery's fan. (And I swear, the MUST , written in big letters wasn't my intention, that did my tablet on its own, a very smart device, by the way, it knows my taste and it can recognize the high quality ).

Because we are talking about the book #7 in the series, some readers would probably like to know, if it is nesseserily to start the series from the very beginning. As much as I prefer you to do it in the right order, I think you can read

Private Investigator Dan Sharp of Toronto is like a flaming arrow of justice. This man is unstoppable. He won't let go until a case is truly closed out, and this time, such determination could result in a fatal outcome. Dan is asked to take on a parallel investigation into the kidnapping while camping of an autistic three-year-old, but the facts are buried deeply and are immensely tangled. It's recommended to read this one between AFTER THE HORSES and THE GOD GAME.

I received this book for free through NetGalley.

Lion’s Head Revisited by Jeffrey Round is a mystery, part of the Dan Sharp Mystery series, but it can be read as a standalone without any issues. It’s not dark or noir, but not exactly cosy either. I would call a it a moody book, set partly in the Canadian wilderness and partly in Toronto, with a serious topic and a Private Investigator who has flashbacks of unhappy memories related to the area this investigation is taking place.

PI Dan Sharp is

Lion's Head Revisited by Jeffrey Round is a multi-layered mystery that is quite compelling. Although this newest release is the seventh novel in the Dan Sharpe Mystery series, it can be read as a standalone.

Private Investigator Dan Sharpe's new clients bring him what should be a straight-forward investigation. Janice Bentham's four year old autistic son Jeremy has been kidnapped and a ransom demand has been made. She is accompanied by her girlfriend Ashley Lake and friend Eli Gestner

This was a solid, well-written mystery! This book is part of a series, but I haven't read the previous ones and I still found this very enjoyable. I'm certain there is a lot more interesting history of the characters in previous installments so I'd suggest going back to the beginning and reading if you're interested in a great mystery series!

Good, solid mystery. The reveal was far more complicated than I expected, and I didn't expect the ID of the ultimate baddie, but the mystery was satisfyingly twisty. I also liked the subplots with Dan's friends and family (e.g. His BFF Donny not liking his BF Nick).

The story of Sandy -- a dog Dan's parents made him abandon when he was a kid -- made me really sad.

Another very solid mystery by Jeffrey Round. Dan Sharp is an intriguing character, and Round does a great job of situating him in his personal life, and of making this case matter to him. The settings in Toronto and out in the country are very evocative, and the case is appealing.
