Publisher's Summary

Los Angeles, 1943: Reporter Nathan Doyle had his reasons to want Phil Arlen dead, but when he sees the man's body pulled from the La Brea tar pit, he knows he'll be the prime suspect. He also knows that his life won't stand up to intense police scrutiny, so he sets out to crack the case himself.

Lieutenant Matthew Spain's official inquiries soon lead him to believe that Nathan knows more than he's saying. But that's not the only reason Matt takes notice of the handsome journalist. Matt's been drawn to men before, but he must hide his true feelings - or risk his entire career.

As Nathan digs deeper, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay one step ahead of Matt Spain - and to deny his intense attraction to him. Nathan's secrets may not include murder, but has his hunt put him right in the path of the real killer?

This novella contains scenes of gay erotic content.

    Story
    "Wonderful."

    This is a classic noir murder mystery and is just wonderful. The narrator really did a great job and listening to this really makes you believe you are huddled around a radio with the family for a Saturday night adventure. Both MCs are great. Spain is a widowed detective coming to grips with his sexuality after the death of his wife and returning from WWII. And Doyle is a man tortured by his need for other men and trauma from the war. They find each other and tackle their collective demons. I hope there are more from these two as this is a HFN ending. Classic Lanyon and worth a credit.

    "Wow! Another Masterful Performance"

    Josh Lanyon does such a marvelous job with his historicals. I love the way he has crafted this story. The dialog, the imagery, the well developed characters all bring this period to life. Parts of this story are just heart breaking, but Mr. Lanyon still manages to pull out hope. The mystery was excellent.

    Alexander Masters turned in an excellent performance as the narrator. He did a really good job with all the voices, the pacing, and telling the story. I loved his Nathan voice.
