Publisher's Summary

Death reveals all truths....

Mystery author and sometimes amateur sleuth Christopher Holmes is settling into domesticity with his sometimes rival, sometimes nemesis J.X. Moriarity when he learns a body has been discovered in the backyard of his former home. 

To complicate matters, Christopher's ex turns up accusing Christopher of doing away with his former personal assistant - the man for whom David dumped him.

It's life as usual at Chez Holmes. In other words...murder.

Expectations Exceeded!

I love this series. This last book was my favorite (I say that every time, but it's true each time) and I've been so looking forward to the Audible release. I was not disappointed. In fact, I am planning to listen to it again, right away.. A truly scary villain, lots of lovely schmoop, and an absolutely hair-raising ending. Oh, and Josh has done a great job with Kit and JX's relationship. From book to book it's been growing, lovely to see. Kevin R. Free -- well, he does a great job with all the character's voices, but he really IS Kit.

If I had to choose between this series and Josh's Adrien English series, I seriously don't know what I'd do.

A perfect marriage of narrator and story.

In Other Words, The One Where Christopher Holmes Grows Up.

This is the fourth book in the series and, much like a fine wine, the series has improved with age. And that’s the nice thing about a series: the author has the time and luxury to let the characters mature and learn and just be.

The story takes place four months after the events of ‘The Boy With the Painful Tattoo’ and we find Christopher Holmes and J.X. Moriarity enjoying domestic bliss. Of course, that comes to a screeching halt when Christopher gets a call from his ex David informing him that a body has been discovered in the backyard of his former home in Los Angeles. To make matters worse, David suggests the body is Christopher’s former assistant (who David ran off with) and accuses him of killing him.

The cops soon appear and Christopher, once again, finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation. The difference here, is this isn’t his first rodeo and he’s actually been paying attention.

The book is well-plotted and well-paced and there are some surprising (and pleasing) twists and turns in the relationship between Kit and J.X. We’re treated to the hilarous insanity that is Rachel Ving and we also see the return of an old frenemy.

Lanyon (as usual) is at the top of her game with punchy dialogue, most notably Kit’s withering self-assessments and witty asides. Of course, J.X. gets his licks and quips in, too. However, the real revelation is Kit’s newfound self-awareness and restraint. I found the book to be eminently satisfying.

But the star here is narrator Kevin R. Free, who turns in another bravura performance, as he seamlessly switches between the distinct voices of Kit, J.X., and Rachel (as well as the entire cast of characters). He doesn't miss a beat as he brings each line of Lanyon's fantastic dialogue alive.

I Love Chris Holmes

I'm a big Josh Lanyon fan. I've read pretty much everything he has written. This series is one of my favorites and this is a really fun story. In Other Words---Murder isn't my favorite in the series but it is entertaining and it's still worth reading and especially listening too. Chris still makes me laugh out loud. I particularly enjoyed the way the MC's relationship has progressed.I think fans of J.X. and Chris will enjoy it.

As always Kevin R Free does a great job on the narration. He really brings the characters to life.

Perfect

Kevin R Free is superb, reviving his role as Christopher Holmes and JX Moriarity. I couldn’t imagine anyone else doing such a great job with these wonderful books and characters. The book was a pleasure to read and listen to, suspense, romance, comedy, and automatic buy for me at any time. Long may this series continue. If you have already read this series you know what I mean, if you haven’t go start at ‘Somebody Killed His Editor’, the story grabs you from the first sentence and doesn’t let go!
