The Back Passage | [James Lear]

The Back Passage

A seaside village, an English country house, a family of wealthy eccentrics, a determined detective - all the ingredients are here for a cozy Agatha Christie-style whodunit. But wait. Edward "Mitch" Mitchell is no Hercule Poirot, and The Back Passage is no Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Mitch is a handsome, insatiable 22-year-old hunk who never lets a clue stand in the way of a steamy encounter, whether it's with the local constabulary, the house secretary, or his school chum and fellow athlete Boy Morgan, who becomes his Watson when they're not busy boffing each other.

Publisher's Summary

A seaside village, an English country house, a family of wealthy eccentrics and their equally peculiar servants, a determined detective - all the ingredients are here for a cozy Agatha Christie-style whodunit.

But wait.... Edward "Mitch" Mitchell is no Hercule Poirot, and The Back Passage is no Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Mitch is a handsome, insatiable 22-year-old hunk who never lets a clue stand in the way of a steamy encounter, whether it's with the local constabulary, the house secretary, or his school chum and fellow athlete Boy Morgan, who becomes his Watson when they're not busy boffing each other.

When Reg Walworth is found dead in a cabinet, Sir James Eagle has his servant Meeks immediately arrested as the killer. But Mitch's observant eye pegs more plausible possibilities: polysexual chauffeur Hibbert, queenly pervert Leonard Eagle, missing scion Rex, sadistic copper Kennington, even Sir James Eagle himself.

Blackmail, police corruption, a dizzying network of spyholes and secret passages, watersports, and a nonstop queer orgy backstairs and everyplace else mark this hilariously hard-core mystery by a major new talent.

    "Mitch Mitchell escapades are wonderful!"

    This series from James Lear with Mitch Mitchell is wonderful..... Starting with "Back Passage".....the characters are well drawn and well executed. The story is full of interesting twists and turns and a bit of history thrown in...and let's not forget the sex...everywhere there is sex.

    Mitchell is visiting a country estate with hopes of seducing Boy Morgan, who is engaged to the daughter of the estate owner. Before Mitchell can complete his sexual machinations a murder is committed and he is in the middle of the investigation.

    I enjoyed it immensely!

    "Strangely wonderful"

    Its a light enough read that disbelief must be suspended more than once. At the same time, its a scarily accurate nod to Agatha Christie (but with more hot men). Based on this, I read the whole Mitch Mitchell series and none of them fell below this standard.
