Mar 14, Tsble rated it really liked it Shelves: While I ponder that one, I will continue with my review. Josh Lanyon is a recent discovery for me and I love how he writes, a few words explains so much, so well.

So if any of these sound enticing, Lanyon at her best could be your crack.

In addition to delighting in some very colorful secondary characters, I loved both main characters. Three years ago, a scandal cost antiquarian “book hunter” James Winter everything that mattered to him: The review must be at least 50 characters long.


This story ranks way high up there with joosh wonderful Adrien English mysteries and with “Mexican Heat” in terms of how close i felt to om main characters and what they go through emotionally. I have a huge affinity for anything and everything that relates to the Golden Age of Hollywood. What made the experience of listening to Cards on the Table josu most enjoyable? I don’t know, maybe I wanted a bit more here —I’m spoiled with great Josh Lanyon stories— and this felt okay but no more.

Another 4 star A stylish tale of a reporter investigating a year-old Hollywood mystery. I really enjoyed this book and even the mystery part about it had a different quality or feel to it.

However, to me, somehow, it doesn’t feel like a formula, more like ever so slightly differently nuanced elaborations on recurring themes that just hit home for me. A nice tight little mystery about a year old Hollywood cold case.


The mystery itself was more of a three star but the parts between Jack and Tim made me bump it up. It is subtle contrivances like these that separate the master mystery writer from the pack; this, and a list of eccentric suspects, mob connections, assorted dangers, and a cute cop with dimples thrown into the mix.

This is an unconventional love story and a truly entertaining murder mystery – written unconventionally well. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers.
