Someday I’ll own all Josh Lanyon’s books. Until then, I’ll read the ones I can afford. The Adrien English series has already been the subject of a post on Worming the Books.
This is book 3 in the Moriarity/Holmes series. I liked the first two, but this one is really good. My favourite of this series so far. Josh Lanyon has his own wonderful writing style and it shines on in this book.
My favourite quote:
I am exercising my little gay cells, mon ami.
Josh Lanyon, The Boy With The Painful Tattoo
For any Agatha Christie fan like me, this one is delicious.
The intrigue is great, the dialogue is scrumptious, the jokes are really funny – I sometimes laughed out loud – and the relationship between the two main characters is coming along nicely. I hope there’s more.
Funny though… there’s not much about the boy with the painful tattoo in the story…
