Description

Suffering from writer's block and frustrated with his tentative relationship with hot but closeted LAPD Homicide Detective Jake Riordan, gay bookseller and mystery writer Adrien English travels to northern California where he finds a body in his front drive. By the time the sheriffs arrive the body has disappeared, and Adrien once again finds himself playing amateur sleuth. But when the game turns deadly, Adrien turns to Jake. Jake may be confused about some things, but keeping his lover alive is not one of them - no matter what the cost.

A Seamless Transition from the First Book

Josh Lanyon really outdid himself this time. This book is simply great. The story was so compelling I listened to the whole thing in one day! The book made a perfect transition from Fatal Shadows. If you haven't listened to Fatal Shadows yet, I recommend buying both and listening to them in order.

Number 2: Very Enjoyable...

Number two in the series and I must admit that the mystery plot was a bit less obvious than the first book and the budding relationship between Adrien and Jake was tantalizing, to say the least. The twinge of jealousy from Jake was a welcomed surprise and certainly opened the door for hope. On a side note, I have been more careful checking my mailbox since reading this story! Another great tale by Josh Lanyon and again Chris Patton’s narration was excellent and added to the story. Looking forward to reading the next in the series! Recommend!!

A wondefull follow up to Fatal Shadows

Chris Patton's narration is even better in the second book of the Adrien English series. The was a very enjoyable listen of one of my favorite series.

Fantastic narration, awesome mystery

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES! I've recommended both audio and book to several friends and they've all enjoyed it. The mystery is great, i really like the setting and absolutely adore the characters. A Dangerous Thing is an all time favorite of mine, and the narration is perfect while somehow still getting better and better with each book.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked best two things: the mystery, and the character arc. One of the reasons i like this book best out of the series is that the two main characters get to spend a lot of time together, figuring things out, both personal, and mystery-wise. I love the dynamic and the sense of humor.

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

I first listened to Chris Patton in Fatal Shadows, the first Adrien English mystery, and fell in love with his amazing voice and narration skills. He's exceeded my expectations and beyond, and he keeps getting better and better.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes! It made me laugh many many times, and also sigh happily often, and be on the edge of my seat, and more. There's no moment with no reaction in this book. Josh Lanyon's books always elicit a wide range of emotions.

Continuing to love this series!

"Aren't you the guy who told me a cop's gut instinct is one of his best tools?"
"You're not a cop, baby. You're a bookseller. You don't have a gut instinct. You have knack for nearly getting yourself killed."

I love the blend of quick wit and humour with the intrigue of the murder mystery. But as good as the mystery is, of course I'm really only reading to see to the evolution of the relationship between Adrien and Jake.

I adore Adrien! He's the sort of guy I would love to have as a friend and as a friend, I want him to be happy. His admission (to himself) of love for Jake is painful because we know loving Jake won't be easy. Oh, but the first kiss with Jake - just beautiful!

I have been continuing to 'read' this series by listening to the audio version......Chris Patton does a stellar job of narrating this series. I loved the way he voiced Adrien - his inflection, his tone, the quality of his voice - and the sexy, gruffness of Jake is perfect!

A dangerous thing - definitely recommended

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this and I have spent the last couple of driving trips listening to the story. I was so lucky.
Firstly, I have all of Josh's books both as ebooks and in print as well. I'm now going to add audio books to my collection. When driving long distances listening to an ebook is a great way to pass the time. The story is interesting and Chris Patton does a great job at narrator.
I can't recommend this author, this story or this format highly enough.

A fun tale, but...

As much as I enjoyed the story and the characters, Jake is starting to grate my nerves a bit. I’m hoping that eases up in the following books. Adrian is alright, but I want more from him too.

I did notice a bit of audio skipping and repeating, so that was a little obnoxious.

Over all though, it was enjoyable.

Adrien & Jake just get better

Overall Series 5th Re-Read 2019:
Adrien with an "e", what can I say that I haven't already said? Nothing really because I absolutely adore Adrien and Jake. Yes, there are multiple times I want to whack Jake upside the head but he's learning, albeit slowly sometimes but still learning. There's heartbreak, there's joy, there's murder, and well there's plenty of love(even if it takes Jake a little longer to accept).

All but the final Christmas novella is narrated by Chris Patton and his voice is perfect for these two. I couldn't imagine listening to anyone else bring life to the pair but then when I listened to So This is Christmas, read by Kale Williams, he too is . . . well for the lack of a better word(and not to sound redundant😉) . . . brilliant. Obviously there is a difference between the two narrators but since Adrien and Jake are settled, or as settled as they can be considering Adrien's knack for stumbling into mayhem, which changes people and so the difference in narrators kind of reflects that I thought. So I say spot on to all involved bringing Adrien English and Jake Riordan to life.

Best series ever

I love this slow burn romance/mystery series so much. I’ll never get sick of listening to it

One of my favorite series

This is book 2 in the Adrien English series. I highly recommend the whole series (to be read in order), these are some of the "need to read"-books in the m/m genre. Josh Lanyon is an author who mangages to entertain without falling into stereotypes.

The narrator Chris Patton did such an excellent job that I'm definitely going to check out other books narrated by him.

Highly recommended but you need to listen in order because despite every mystery story is solved in each book, the relationship between Adrien and Jake spikes and crashes and survives over the whole series.

I already have read and reread the series on my kindle but I need to have them on audio, too. Yes, I think these books are so good.

Chris Patton is perfect!!!

I've already read the entire Adrien English series but since I couldn't get enough of the series, I'm giving the audio books a try, even though I haven't heard an audio book that I really liked before. Apart from one narrated by Sean Bean which is why I thought audio books were forever ruined for me cause Sean Bean is awesome.

I was wrong.

Chris Patton does a wonderful job with the Adrien English series!
Not only is Riordan's even better than I imagined it to be, but the intonation of every single sentence is just perfect!
Chris Patron really enhances the Adrien English experience!!

Eine gut geschriebene Mystery Geschichte

Der Sprecher ist sehr angenehm zuzuhören, die Geschichte schön geschrieben. Die Liebelei zwischen den beiden Hauptcharaktären steht zwar im Vordergrund aber schmiegt sich sehr gekonnt an die Geschichte an. Es gibt ein schönes hin und her schaukeln zwischen dem verkorksten latent homophoben/schwulen LAPD Cop Jake und Adrien, und der gruseligen Bedrohung die übernatürlich sein könnte... Oder ist? Auf jeden Fall eine sehr schöne Geschichte, die auch für heterosexuelle interessant sein könnte. Das grauenhafte Cover sei verziehen.

bin gerade betrunken

also ich bin sicher gerade auch etwas betrunken, aber irgendwie springen die von einem Punkt zum nächsten ohne den Zusammenhang zu erwähnen. der Typ ist gerade im Krankenhaus, keine Ahnung wie der da hin gekommen ist, und dann ist der plötzlich wieder auf dem Berg wo wohl jemand gestorben ist was ich aber auch nicht wirklich mit bekommen habe .... also echt kein plan was das gerade passiert, ist aber wohl ganz nett. kann man mal hören - denke ich

Der Sog wird langsam stärker

Die Geschichte hat mir insgesamt besser gefallen als der erste Teil. Mit diesem Teil fing ich an den Sprecher richtig gerne zu hören, besonders wie er Jake Reardon liest, ist mehr als angenehm. Während der Kriminalfall wieder "nur ganz nett" war, wird die Beziehung zwischen Jake und Adrien folgerichtig und sehr schön weiter entwickelt. Zum Glück konnte ich gleich Band 3 anschließen.
