Description

Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literary lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career. A career nearly as dead as the body he stumbles over in the woods. In a weirdly déjà vu replay of one of his own novels, he finds himself stranded in an isolated lodge full of frightened women?and not a lawman in sight. Except for J.X. Moriarity, former cop and bestselling novelist. The man with whom he shared a one-night stand - okay, maybe three - long ago. The man who wants to arrest him for murder. A ruthless, stalking killer, or a hot, handsome ex-lover. Which poses the greater danger? It's elementary, my dear Holmes!

**this title contains gay erotic content**

Any additional comments?

I always like anything Josh Lanyon does, but this narrator really brought out the best in this book and made me laugh throughout the whole thing which I did not do when I read it. I smiled a lot but did not laugh out loud like I did with this narrator.

And the killer is...

I have to admit...I really loved this book. My introduction to Christopher Holmes was a bit off-setting...in fact I thought I would completely dislike the protagonist. But his self-deprecating humor and his comic perspective actually endeared me. I laughed out loud on many occasions because of Kit's perspective. The introduction of J.X. brought a picture to mind that might be a bit inappropriate to share, but I knew early that something was not right in the state of Denmark, specifically concerning Kit and J.X. Josh Lanyon's writing style engages the reader and he did a fantastic job with this tale of mystery. Additionally, the narration of Kevin R. Free was superb and added to the story. One of the better narrator's and I look forward to hearing his telling of a tale again, hopefully he will continue in this series. Great book and I enjoyed it immensely!~~

One of my favorites made even better in audio.

I had recently re-read this book when I bought the audio book. I like it even more as an audiobook. Kevin R. Free's narration of Kit Holmes is just perfect. J.X.'s voice is also dead sexy.

It's a perfect case of a favorite book being converted into now a favorite narrated audiobook.

Very Well Done

What made the experience of listening to Somebody Killed His Editor the most enjoyable?

Enjoyed the narration by Kevin R Free, he captured Kit wonderfully. I have previously read this Josh Lanyon book and found the audio version delightful.

A fantastic series!

I have a confession to make — I've fell blindly and unconditionally in love with the main character of this book. Kit Holmes is struggling with mid-life crisis big time: his long-term relationship has just ended, his career is going downhill, he is concerned about his health, he feels old and he complains a lot about all and everything. What is there not to like about this man?! I enjoy the way he sees the world and himself through the sarcastic lenses and I absolutely love the unbeatable, witty logic of his!

Not many audio books have made me laugh out loud, but this one did — several times. Besides the excellent writing the best thing about this book is no doubt the fact that the author's joy of writing Somebody Killed His Editor comes across so loud and clear.

I also enjoyed the old-fashioned, Agatha Christie kind of mystery setting in this story. It all worked out extremely well — I never figured the mystery out by myself.

The narrator adds a nice touch to the story and at the same time makes some of the scenes even more hilarious. With a great narrator like Kevin R. Free this is definitely a book I can recommend wholeheartedly.

So good I read the sequel right after listening

Would you consider the audio edition of Somebody Killed His Editor to be better than the print version?

I don't know about better, but it enhanced it greatly. I always knew that "Somebody Killed His Editor" was one of the snarkiest books ever written, but through the vocal talents of Mr. Free, I really appreciated how snarky Holmes really is. Very, very good.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Somebody Killed His Editor?

Just about every conversation glows in my mind, and Kevin R Free is a master of the different voices. I didn't need any textual prompts to figure out who was talking, and it was like listening to a really great one-man radio play.

If forced to pick one moment, it would be discovering the body on the terrace, or when Holmes and Moriarity are eating in the bar late in the book. There's just something about those two moments that leap out of the audiobook and seem like I was listening to a recording of real events. Very cool.

What does Kevin R. Free bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The snark, the real emotional sense of the action taking place, are enhanced and extended.

Who was the most memorable character of Somebody Killed His Editor and why?

Holmes. He's just so sarcastic!

Loved the Narrator

I have read this book several times. Every time I read it, I enjoy it more. It is in turns laugh out loud funny, hold your breath suspenseful, and always entertaining. I really enjoyed the mystery.

At first I didn't care for the narrator because he didn't match the voices in my head. However, by the end of the first chapter, I couldn't imagine Kit sounding like anything but the way Free portrayed him. He did a wonderful job with the other charatcters, also. He really brought the story to life and made an excellent book into a fantastic experience.

Better heard that read

Kit Holmes is a writer stuck in a rut, and being put out to pasture by his publishing house, while XJ Moriarity is a best selling writer on the uphill climb to fame, they meet (again) at a writers retreat in the back woods of California. Unfortunately for Kit, he stumbles upon a dead body before he even checks in. All eyes turn on him, and the body count rises.

When I first read this book, I did not like Kit. His was the only lead character from Josh Lanyon that I didn't find charming. All that has changed now that I have heard Kevin R. Free narrate him. What in reading seemed to me as whining, comes across as acerbic and self-depreciating (as Josh intended) when spoken.

Murder Mystery. A Touch of Romance.

Would you consider the audio edition of Somebody Killed His Editor to be better than the print version?

Yes, I would. They are still Josh's words as he wrote them but I was reading them with my own voice before. Kevin puts so much emotion into every chapter and brings the story to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kit. He's a very self-absorbed person, but he knows his own failings and admits them. He's also very funny.

Have you listened to any of Kevin R. Free’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't. I must remedy that.

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

When Kit was trying to find J.X. Even though he had a few doubts about him, Kit insisted that J.X. should be found and wouldn't stop looking.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to get started on All She Wrote!

Mehr geht nicht.

Grossartig!
An und für sich dürfte das Buch bei dem Setting nicht halb so originell sein wie es ist!
Erwischte mich oft dabei breit zu Grinsen beim hören.

Bloody brillant

I've read this one a while ago and loved it. It is so entertaining. Now I do my reread on audio....I love that more and more of Josh Lanyon's books are available on audio. And funny enough...I notice things, little sentences, that I hadn't while reading it for the first time...in my haste to get on with the thrilling story. So I enjoy finding this little gems in the story that make it very unique.
