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?

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.

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!
