A sticky end to a hit murder mystery triology.
Best friends and sometime lovers Edward "Mitch" Mitchell and Harry "Boy" Morgan have been in terrible jams before - their adventures of murder, mystery, and unstoppable sex have made The Back Passage and The Secret Tunnel international best sellers.
In A Sticky End, Mitch must face the possibility that his chum is involved in the chain of events that led to the suicide of Boy's own colleague and secret paramour, Frank Bartlett. To absolve Boy, Mitch races around London finding clues while bedding the many men eager to lend a hand-or more. As Mitch says himself, "Holmes has his fiddle, Poirot has his liqueurs - I have cock. We all have our methods."
The policemen, working class gigolos, steam-room bathers, embezzlers and blackmailers that Mitch comes across create a tasty mystery and satisfying erotic romp.

While this isn't a major piece of literary fiction, it is a fun read. Enough plot to make it entertaining, and enough eroticism to make it spicy. A gay version of a bodice ripper.

Good grief! This story definitely took place prior to the AIDS epidemic! I mean, the amount of sex our dear Mitch has through out the bit of investigating he was suppose to be doing to help,his friend was eye boggling ridiculous! Yet I honestly liked the story. The mystery of 'who dunnit?' was intriguing and a bit sad when figured out but extremely entertaining.
I felt bad for Mitch somewhat because it's always hard to not feel as important in someone's world as they are to your world. And the ending with Vince was beautifully sad. My heart broke for Vince but I'm glad there was so much love and hope between Mitch and Vince. That part of the story was my absolute favorite.
Some might be annoyed that Mitch is American but the narration was done in a British accent. But, I'm completely smitten with Daniel Carter's voice, I couldn't care less which is crazy because if the opposite happened I'd be upset. I'm just a sucker for that sexy young British accent. ❤️
But still well worth it. Mitch is at it again, pulling Boy Morgan's bacon out of the fire. This one is more sincere and emotional than the others, but also has its facets of enjoyable romp. I recommend the series.
