Publisher's Summary

Mitch Mitchell is back! All aboard the Flying Scotsman as our horny hero tackles a new case that mixes murder, mystery, and mansex.

Handsome, muscular Edward "Mitch" Mitchell made a splash in James Lear's spicy variation on the British cozy mystery, The Back Passage. Now, in this steamy send-up of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, he's travelling from Edinburgh to London for a reunion with his ex, "Boy" Morgan. All aboard the Flying Scotsman for a ride that's anything but smooth, as Mitch discovers his fellow travellers include Belgian power bottom Bertrand and sleazy starlet Daisy Athenasy - and her butch publicist Peter Dickinson. Add to the recipe a group of kilt-wearing soldiers, some very accommodating railway workers, and a dead body tumbling out of the toilet, and you have a magical mix of comedy, mystery, and non-stop sex.

Critic Reviews

"A wickedly brisk blend of sexual romps and intricate sleuthing. Cliche-free erotica is a treasure: an intelligent mystery is a pleasure. Finding both between the covers of the same book is elegantly orgasmic." (Q Syndicate)
"Lear's prose is vibrant and colorful.... This isn't porn accompanied by a wah-wah guitar, this is porn to the strains of Beethoven's Ode to Joy, each vividly realised ejaculation accompanied by a fanfare and the crashing of symbols." (Time Out London)

VERY guilty pleasure!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Secret Tunnel to be better than the print version?

I haven't seen the print version, but I suspect so. I LOVE the narrator and imagine that Mitch would sound just like him - in an American sort of way.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Tunnel?

There are too many to mention...

What does Daniel Carter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's got a wonderful voice. He's interesting to listen to and sounds so charming.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Of light and dark in the tunnel, in the bedroom and on film.

Any additional comments?

I could listen to as many of these books as Daniel Carter is willing to read. I enjoy the book and the presentations!

A great mystery, and goes so much further

On the heels of The Back Door, be prepared. This is a convoluted mystery, and an introduction to a really dark aspect of M/M lives and vulnerability in a recent historic period. Not to say it couldn't happen today.
The story is compelling. The narration is perfect. How do I say it? The story isn't what I wanted for Mitch, but I have to go along with it. I really hope his next story is not as dark.
