Publisher's summary

Gay teacher Skyler Foxe thought teaching English was murder. Wait till he falls into the real thing.

Skyler Foxe is a brand new English teacher in his hometown of Redlands, CA. He loves literature, loves his students, loves his friends, especially his best friend Detective Sidney Feldman. But he doesn't love keeping his orientation a secret, afraid of the backlash in this conservative county. But will murder thrust him into unwanted limelight?

Who killed the principal's son outside a gay dance club? And what's the connection to James Polk High? Is the macho football coach or his mysterious and gorgeous new assistant coach involved? Can Skyler trust anyone at the high school when there seems to be conspiracies around every corner?

Hot homo handling homework and homicide.

Where does Foxe Tail rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Certainly in the realm of gay-themed fiction I would rate it very highly. Often the narrators that agree to do this kind of material sound more like my grandfather than the characters they portray. The voice for this was spot-on. The writing is smart, sassy and the book also surprises you with real emotional depth. I certainly would listen to more from this series and this narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Foxe Tail?

There is a moment between two of Skyler's students that really took me by surprise...and i loved it. It's always tough to talk in too much detail about a mystery - but this book has plenty of twists and turns. There is a romantic high point in an abandoned classroom between Skyler and Keith that was really hot lol.

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

I haven't - but I think he has a great energy for this kind of material. He embraces the different characters and makes them very specific and entertaining.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love the fact that Skyler is flawed... he's not perfect. There's a conversation he has with his friend Phillip that I thought was really great in terms of character development. Walsh invests as much time in her supporting cast as she does in Skyler.

Any additional comments?

Happy to be a member of the SFC. :)
