His romantic weekend in ruins, shy 20-something artist Perry Foster learns that things can always get worse when he returns home from San Francisco to find a dead body in his bathtub. A dead body in a very ugly sportscoat - and matching socks. The dead man is a stranger to Perry, but that's not much of a comfort; how did a strange dead man get in a locked flat at the isolated Alton Estate in the wilds of the 'Northeast Kingdom' of Vermont? Perry turns to help from 'tall, dark and hostile' former navy SEAL Nick Reno - but is Reno all that he seems?

And the Spirits say...

From the word 'GO' the journey of who 'dunnit' intrigues the reader, at least until near the end of the story.

Enjoyable story, Narrator gets better

I recently discovered Josh Lanyon, in the Adrien English series, and was eager to read this story which I think is one of his early novels? The story was excellent, keeping in mind it was a much earlier example of his art.

Sometimes I enjoy a writer's work so much I forget to check out the audio sample to see if I like the narrator, before I buy the audio version. Because I require a narrator, not a reader, to fully enjoy an audiobook.

This narrator, Max Miller, at first almost disappointed me, the voice seemed so lacking in energy and the narration was flat. But liking the Josh Lanyon stories so much, I persevered, and thankfully found the narration quickly improved. The individual voices become well delineated after the first couple of chapters, and the background narration itself picks up energy and rhythm as the story progresses.

I am in the midst of reading and listening to all the Josh Lanyon novels I can find, and I definitely would buy another one narrated by Max Miller.
