Publisher's Summary

Wealthy playboy Brett Sheridan thinks he knows the score when he hires tough guy private eye Neil Patrick Rafferty to find a priceless stolen folio of Shakespeare's The Tempest.

Brett's convinced his partner-in-crime sister is behind the theft - a theft that's liable to bring more scandal to their eccentric family, and cost Brett his marriage to society heiress Juliet Lennox. What Brett doesn't count on is the instant and powerful attraction that flares between him and Rafferty.

Once before, Brett tok a chance on loving a man, only to find himself betrayed and broken. This time around there's too much at risk.

But as the Bard himself would say, "Journeys end in lovers meeting."

Disappointing work from a favourite author

The only Lanyon book that I haven't loved.

The voice - a film noir style hard boiled detective - was unconvincing and irritating. The mystery was OK but the main character did not seem real and the romance/passion was unconvincing.

Overall it was formulaic and not gripping or intriguing in the least. It is the first time I haven't enjoyed a book by this author.

Excellent writing!

I love everything about this but the end. For some reason, Josh Lanyon always cuts the story abruptly. I love his storytelling and will continue to support this guy cause he is just an amazing gay writer. But come on man, please make the ending last for at least a chapter or two.

Gay Sam Spade

Well Mr. Lanyon does it again. This is a wonderful mystery/romance told by the perfect narrator for the 1930's noir-like style of storytelling. There is a slow build up of the romance while trying to solve the mystery of who stole a valuable copy of The Tempest (thus the title). He throws in lots of red herrings and action; but, for me, the mystery is really secondary to the MCs journey of self discovery. It all blends together for a truly wonderful listen. Definitely worth a credit.

One of my favorites!

Loved the feel of the time frame. The narrator's gruff voice for Neil and the ever so upper snobbish of Brett yo flighty Juliette. Fun Perfection!

Good mystery

Enjoyable listen for all the little twists but I should check if there is a sequel as many questions were left unanswered

Great story, great narration

A lovely period piece about hard nosed private eye and a society chap who fall for each other whilst chasing down a missing antique. Think Phillip Marlowe crossed with Big Trouble In Little China. I always love JL's protagonists - they are always so very well fleshed out and rounded, complete people. Rafferty and Brett both have faults and weaknesses. They find their way to each other despite that. The narration really hit the spot for me, it matched the style of the story perfectly.
