Mitch Mitchell is back! All aboard the Flying Scotsman as our horny hero tackles a new case that mixes murder, mystery, and mansex.
Handsome, muscular Edward "Mitch" Mitchell made a splash in James Lear's spicy variation on the British cozy mystery, The Back Passage. Now, in this steamy send-up of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, he's travelling from Edinburgh to London for a reunion with his ex, "Boy" Morgan. All aboard the Flying Scotsman for a ride that's anything but smooth, as Mitch discovers his fellow travellers include Belgian power bottom Bertrand and sleazy starlet Daisy Athenasy - and her butch publicist Peter Dickinson. Add to the recipe a group of kilt-wearing soldiers, some very accommodating railway workers, and a dead body tumbling out of the toilet, and you have a magical mix of comedy, mystery, and non-stop sex.

"A wickedly brisk blend of sexual romps and intricate sleuthing. Cliche-free erotica is a treasure: an intelligent mystery is a pleasure. Finding both between the covers of the same book is elegantly orgasmic." (Q Syndicate)
"Lear's prose is vibrant and colorful.... This isn't porn accompanied by a wah-wah guitar, this is porn to the strains of Beethoven's Ode to Joy, each vividly realised ejaculation accompanied by a fanfare and the crashing of symbols." (Time Out London)
I haven't seen the print version, but I suspect so. I LOVE the narrator and imagine that Mitch would sound just like him - in an American sort of way.
There are too many to mention...
He's got a wonderful voice. He's interesting to listen to and sounds so charming.
Of light and dark in the tunnel, in the bedroom and on film.
I could listen to as many of these books as Daniel Carter is willing to read. I enjoy the book and the presentations!
On the heels of The Back Door, be prepared. This is a convoluted mystery, and an introduction to a really dark aspect of M/M lives and vulnerability in a recent historic period. Not to say it couldn't happen today.
The story is compelling. The narration is perfect. How do I say it? The story isn't what I wanted for Mitch, but I have to go along with it. I really hope his next story is not as dark.
