Publisher's Summary

A crippling knee injury forced Elliot Mills to trade in his FBI badge for dusty chalkboards and bored college students. Now a history professor at Puget Sound University, the former agent has put his old life behind him, but it seems his old life isn't finished with him.

A young man has gone missing from campus and as a favor to a family friend, Elliot agrees to do a little sniffing around. His investigations bring him face-to-face with his former lover, Tucker Lance, the special agent handling the case.

Things ended badly with Tucker, and neither man is ready to back down on the fight that drove them apart. But they have to figure out a way to move beyond their past and work together as more men go missing and Elliot becomes the target in a killer's obsessive game....

    Story
    "Runaway? Suicide? Murder...oh my."

    New to teaching after his career with the FBI is over, Elliot Mills is not looking for a mystery, but family dynamics get him involved with finding a missing student. And then another student comes up missing, the 2 boys seem to have nothing in common except they both go to school at Elliot's College. As Elliot picks his way thru the clues, he meets up and starts up again, with his ex-lover FBI agent Tucker Lance, and catches the eye of a serial killer who wants to play a game with Elliot - catch me if you can.

    Josh Lanyon writes a great mystery, and he does not telegraph the killer so you keep guessing until the very end. JL's men are always sexy, smart, and fun to read. His romance/mysteries give you just enough loving to make them spice but never too much to detract from the mystery.

    One of my go-to authors.

    On a personal note, there are errors in geographical facts that irked for me (having been born, raised, and still residing in Washington), but it is a slight irritation that no-one not from the Puget Sound area would even know.

    "Narration lacked emotion"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story is good - I'd like to read more about the two MCs.


    What aspect of Ray Ramano’s performance would you have changed?

    During the sex scene, the narration did not really convey much emotion. It kinda sounded like the narrator really didn't want to be reading that part of the book.

    "Great story, terrible performance"
    What did you love best about Fair Game?

    Fun Story, interesting connections.


    What other book might you compare Fair Game to and why?

    Since this was my second Josh Lanyon book and you can feel the same writer it what is written and it was very enjoyable.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ray Ramano?

    Charlie David is always my first choice, also the recording says it was read by Sawyer Allen. And if it was him and to Ray Ramano that needs to be changed. Because i would hate to give an AWFUL review of a the wrong person. He was flat in the whole performance showing almost no emotion or vocal range.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very entertained with the mystery


    Any additional comments?

    none

    Story
    "Fair Game Review"
    What did you love best about Fair Game?

    It was a great mystery and love story. The relationship between the two men was highly believeable and the mystery was very interesting. I enjoy mystery and action and this book had both.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fair Game?

    There were two moments, the first was when Elliot was being unexpectedly shot at and Tucker came to the rescue and the other was when Elliot walked in and found his neighbor dead in his bed. These two incidents were not the only good moments in the book but I don't do spoilers, although those two scenes could be considered too much info! The relationship dynamic between Elliot and his father is also very interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Ray Ramano’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was a first listening to Ray Ramano and I thought the performance was very good.


    Who was the most memorable character of Fair Game and why?

    It is hard to say, Elliot, Tucker and all of the support characters. The story is written so smoothly that each character is fleshed out pretty well.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a gay mystery.
