Publisher's Summary

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!

I always like anything Josh Lanyon does, but this narrator really brought out the best in this book and made me laugh throughout the whole thing which I did not do when I read it. I smiled a lot but did not laugh out loud like I did with this narrator.

And the killer is...

I have to admit...I really loved this book. My introduction to Christopher Holmes was a bit off-setting...in fact I thought I would completely dislike the protagonist. But his self-deprecating humor and his comic perspective actually endeared me. I laughed out loud on many occasions because of Kit's perspective. The introduction of J.X. brought a picture to mind that might be a bit inappropriate to share, but I knew early that something was not right in the state of Denmark, specifically concerning Kit and J.X. Josh Lanyon's writing style engages the reader and he did a fantastic job with this tale of mystery. Additionally, the narration of Kevin R. Free was superb and added to the story. One of the better narrator's and I look forward to hearing his telling of a tale again, hopefully he will continue in this series. Great book and I enjoyed it immensely!~~
