What the community says about Fatal Shadows (The Adrien English Mysteries)
- "People may seem a bit uncomfortable at the gay romance genre, but if it is well-written, has a good plot and keeps you involved, who cares?! Fatal Shadows certainly does that, as Josh Lanyon tells the tale of Adrien English, who had his friend murdered, getting stalked by a very weird man, and a homophobic detective (because every gay novel has to have a bad guy who hates LGBTQ, but I digress) has to try to figure out who committed the crime. Keeping up? See, it's a great read!"
- "I am interested in this book after reading the reviews and the description. I think it goes well with the topic and the reader will be happy with this book. The solution was a great suggestion to the topic."
- "I really liked this book as although it was a novel about homosexual romance, it is tied to mystery and murder which made it even more interesting and exciting. I thought this book was a good introduction to the series and introduced the writer as a good story teller."
- "I was skeptical at the concept of a dark gay detective story, but Fatal Shadows turned out to be a lot more interesting than I had expected. Adrien English’s malevolent stalker is a legibly nasty, scary villain, not just a cheap plot gimmick, and Adrien’s feelings of terror, despair and frustration at the killer’s taunts feel very real. What also feel’s real is the status of the police as both potential threat and potential source of help. Adrien needs them, but they’ve patched into him as a suspect and anything that happens gets turned into proof that he is the culprit — his bookshop gets ransacked and threatening notes left behind? Clearly it’s Adrien trying to throw them off the scent! Adrien spends days under surveillance without doing anything remotely sinister? Obviously it’s a sign of what a diabolical criminal mastermind he is! Sadly, this type of thinking is all too common in real life. Adrienisa more fun protagonist than Jake, whom I could take or leave, honestly. Adrien’s fast-paced, mike-a-minute and surprisingly funny internaland external dialogue fits perfectly with a man who loves books and sells them for a living. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and plan to check out more Josh Lanyon in the future."
