Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago little Brian Arlington was kidnapped from his family's Long Island estate and was never seen again. The trail went cold, but investigative journalist Griff Hadley has always thought there was more to the story - much more. When the Arlingtons' patriarch invites him to stay at their estate to research his true crime book, Griff can't say no. It's the story of a lifetime. But not everyone is happy about Griff's presence. Relatives and staff alike regard him coldly, including Pierce Mather, the Arlingtons' attractive lawyer, who is more than a little wary of Griff's motives. When a stranger shows up claiming to be the long-lost Brian, Griff and Pierce are united in their suspicions. Startled to have found an ally in the buttoned-up lawyer, Griff soon realizes it's hard to keep a professional distance. Even in the midst of a groundbreaking investigation, even in the face of a shocking family secret....

Possibly the most enjoyable mystery romance I've ever read! Quintessential Lanyon!

When it comes to mystery and gay romance, no other author writes with the mastery and confidence of Josh Lanyon. His story pulls you in immediately and you know that you're in for a completely entertaining romantic adventure.
Lanyon seems to have a formula that always works and always feels new. I say "formula" only because his lovers tend to always start off at odds; one always seems more gruff, restrained, and in the closet. And circumstances conspire to bring the two together often until their mutual attraction is too compelling to ignore.
But I happen to really enjoy a love story where the lovers aren't hopping into bed in the second chapter, but instead have to learn each other's ways, work through misunderstandings and mistakes, and finally develop a true positive regard and appreciation for each other. The hot sex is the icing on the cake,
The mystery itself in this particular story was more moving and engaging because the main character is so very personally involved for the beginning. So much is at stake for him as much as for the possible suspects. Elements of the spoiled rich and class consciousness and references to The Great Gatsby all combine to lend a haunted atmosphere, both ethereal and dangerous. And classic Lanyon.

Cinderfella Lives HEA

An annoying protagonist, a hot attorney, decent sex scenes and a story with enough plot holes to drive Cinderella's carriage through add up to a mediocre read. Try Snowball in Hell instead.
