Felix Day, author of the Constantine Sphinx mysteries, and Leonard Fuller, author of the Inspector Fez mysteries, are bitter rivals and the best of enemies. Both happen to present when a notorious author of roman à clef is shot by an invisible assailant during a signing at historic Marlborough Bookstore.
Even if they weren't both suspects, it's the perfect opportunity to match wits and sleuthing skills.
If only the murderer was equally amused.

Josh Lanyon does 1940's fiction Noir.
As much as I love Josh Lanyon, and think that her books are the gold standard of m/m romance, especially her historical books. I am sad to say this one fell a little flat.The 1940's ambiance was present, but the characters felt a little one dimensional.And maybe because this was a shorter story, there wasn't the character background and development that we see from Lanyon's longer stories.I did enjoy it, but its not my favorite of hers.
Snowball in Hell, the "Doyle and Spain #1" which I loved, and so wish had a sequel, and also her Holmes and Moriarity series.
Anyone. Although he had a nice well modulated voice it was very confusing because the 2 main characters sounded exactly alike. And I was very confused, not realizing until the 3 or 4th chapter, that the POV switched back and forth. I never was able to discern differences in Fuller and Day, marking them with their own personalities. For me the narrator did a poor job of making each a separate persona.
The plot was interesting, and the MC's had great potential. And I am still and always a Lanyon fan. I wish I had read it, instead of listened to this one.
Murder,and mystery in a bookstore murder, and authors become amateur sleuths.
