Someone's out to get Los Angeles bookseller Adrien English. His best friend has been viciously murdered, now he's getting weird phone calls and sinister gifts from a mysterious "admirer." The cops think he's trying to divert suspicion from himself - with the exception of sexy and homophobic homicide detective Jake Riordan. Is Riordan really such a great detective - or does he have a few secrets of his own? Is his offer to help Adrien on the level or is he out to nail his favorite suspect - to the wall?

Would you consider the audio edition of Fatal Shadows to be better than the print version?

Both are great....

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

This is my first with Chris Patton but boy he nails it.....

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

Laughed out loud often...First, I am not gay and I only recently discovered Josh Lanyon due to a free download from Amazon...But I have about 25 books now.... and I think Adrien (with an E) English has to be one of my all time favorite series...The growth of the relationship between a man, who is so far back in the closet he would need a flashlight to find the door and a man who openly accepts who he is, is amazing... thru each book, the relationship is strong and so turbulent at times.... I just wanted to slap the shit out of both of them at different times.... love the characters, and Adrien's crazy family....I just can't say enough good things about this author.....Did I mention how much I love the characters...GREAT series.

I love, love, love the new narrator. Jean-Claude has an actual French accent. Hurrah!!! And as you go on to the other three older books with this narrator, Richard doesn't sound like a cranky old man. Can't wait till the rest of the older books are on Audible. Did I mention how much I love the new narrator??

Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

Love! Love! Love! I don't know how she continues to do it and, oh my goodness, how long do we have to wait for number 8. Along with J.D. Robb and Janet Evanovich, Diana Gabaldon has me hooked. And I have shared that addiction with several friends and now they are just as bad as I am. Don't stop writing, pleaaasssseeee.
