Publisher's Summary

A sticky end to a hit murder mystery triology.

Best friends and sometime lovers Edward "Mitch" Mitchell and Harry "Boy" Morgan have been in terrible jams before - their adventures of murder, mystery, and unstoppable sex have made The Back Passage and The Secret Tunnel international best sellers.

In A Sticky End, Mitch must face the possibility that his chum is involved in the chain of events that led to the suicide of Boy's own colleague and secret paramour, Frank Bartlett. To absolve Boy, Mitch races around London finding clues while bedding the many men eager to lend a hand-or more. As Mitch says himself, "Holmes has his fiddle, Poirot has his liqueurs - I have cock. We all have our methods."

The policemen, working class gigolos, steam-room bathers, embezzlers and blackmailers that Mitch comes across create a tasty mystery and satisfying erotic romp.

Sadder than the others

But still well worth it. Mitch is at it again, pulling Boy Morgan's bacon out of the fire. This one is more sincere and emotional than the others, but also has its facets of enjoyable romp. I recommend the series.

Just for fun...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

While this isn't a major piece of literary fiction, it is a fun read. Enough plot to make it entertaining, and enough eroticism to make it spicy. A gay version of a bodice ripper.

I Hope This Isn't REALLY The Sticky End for Mitch!

I certainly hope this isn't "the sticky end" for the cast of characters in the Mitch Mitchell books. Once I got used to the over-abundance of sex in this series, I became really fond of the would-be Poirota and his many adventures through the steamier parts of London in search of answers. In this case, to solve the mystery of his very BFF "Boy" Morgan, who has been pulled in for questioning on a possible murder. But before he can solve the case, Mitch has to believe his friend is NOT the murderer everyone else seems to think he is.

As usual, Mitchell finds his way around - and finds his solution - by way of bedding nearly every man he comes in contact with, and finally - maybe way too soon for the reader who doesn't want this story to end - he finds that solution. But what of the title? I leave that to the reader to discern.

I've not fanned out into the other James Lear novels yet - he's a quite prolific author - and those are next. I want to see how he does with contemporary mystery, and with bawdy historical "costume drama" novels. Meanwhile, I also want to know who I can call at his publisher who might have a little pull with the author, to give us maybe one more of the Mitch Mitchell books. This one was a thorough delight.

😍 Daniel Carter 😍

Any additional comments?

Good grief! This story definitely took place prior to the AIDS epidemic! I mean, the amount of sex our dear Mitch has through out the bit of investigating he was suppose to be doing to help,his friend was eye boggling ridiculous! Yet I honestly liked the story. The mystery of 'who dunnit?' was intriguing and a bit sad when figured out but extremely entertaining.

I felt bad for Mitch somewhat because it's always hard to not feel as important in someone's world as they are to your world. And the ending with Vince was beautifully sad. My heart broke for Vince but I'm glad there was so much love and hope between Mitch and Vince. That part of the story was my absolute favorite.

Some might be annoyed that Mitch is American but the narration was done in a British accent. But, I'm completely smitten with Daniel Carter's voice, I couldn't care less which is crazy because if the opposite happened I'd be upset. I'm just a sucker for that sexy young British accent. ❤️
