商品の説明

内容紹介

In this second LA-based adventure, bookseller Adrien English arrives at the Pine Shadow Ranch (left to him by a beloved grandmother) to find a corpse in his driveway. But by the time the unfriendly local sheriffs arrive, the body has disappeared.

Who are the mysterious strangers excavating on his land? And will he sort out his problems with LAPD Detective Jake Riordan, heavily into S/M sex but not so hot on relationships? Find out in this engrossing, slyly witty thriller.

(This novel was previously published by Loose Id Publishing as The Adrien English Mysteries Omnibus)

出版社からのコメント

In Josh Lanyon's A Dangerous Thing, the second in his on-going series of Los Angeles-based thrillers, featuring bookseller Adrien English, a holiday trip, following directly on from the "Gay Slasher Killings" narrated in Fatal Shadows, proves far less relaxing than English anticipates. But one corpse is not enough and as the body count mounts, so does the excitement.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Pretty damned good. 2015/5/8

Liked this one from page one. Spoiler alert for those who don't want to know what the book is actually about.

This on starts with Adrien English getting a little fed up with his on again off again relationship with Jake Riordan the cop. English is also in a mind melt trying to write the sequel to his first sold manuscript. He's getting nowhere in either situation.

Adrien knows Jake is bi sexual. He has a girlfriend as well as Adrien. Jakes a cop and he doesn't want any of his cop buddies to know he and Adrien are more than friends. Hell. He's so far in the closet he can't even see the damned door.

Adrien understands Jakes phobias but he sure as hell doesn't have to like it.

Adrien decides to get out of LA. He leaves the shop in the hands of his assistant Angus and decides he will head for the ranch his Grandmother left him.

The ranch is just north of Senora near the little town of Basking.

Adrien's grandmother raised Arabian Horses and she was the black sheep of the family. She did exactly as she pleased and didn't give a tinkers damn what anyone thought about it. Summers at the ranch were the best times of Adriens life.

Granna died when Adrien was eight. Adrien inherited half of what she left him, which was everything at age twenty one. Adrien will get the rest when he's forty.

His first inheritence funded his purchase of the property for his business. Adrian hasn't been back to the ranch since Granna died. Well. Now he's headed to Pine Shadow Ranch.

Upon arrival in the night the first thing Adrian sees is a dead body in the road.

So begins a pretty nifty read.

This one has Adrian, Jake, two dead men, a missing body, an archeological dig, missing gold, an attack on Adrien, a missing and found mine, a guy named Kevin, an Indian girl named Melissa, a Dr. Livingston, a field planted with marijuana, strang chantin and noise at the old mine, a dog that was literally ripped into peices and Adrien English figuring the whole thing out and saving Jake to boot.

Five Stars.

5つ星のうち 5.0 M/M mystery and love (sort of) story 2014/10/25

I am a huge fan of the Psycop series by Jordan Price. There was such amazing chemistry between her lead characters Vic and Jacob. When I finished that series, I nearly went into mourning, thinking I would never find another fictional couple who had me rooting for them so deeply.
I found them. Adrien English and Jake Riordan have that spark that I need to completely fall in love with a series. I know I'm finding them a little late- I always seem to find the best books years after their release, but for me, it's a first discovery, and I love it! Adrien is something of a smartass, which I love, and I also love that he pulls no punches with Jake's self-hatred.
It took me a little longer to like Jake, because I thought Adrien deserves better than some closet case who can't appreciate him. But Jake slowly grew on me, too, with the scenes in which, in spite of himself, he really does care about Adrien.
I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Adrien English and The Trouble at Ol' Pine Shadow Ranch! 2014/3/31

If the first book Fatal Shadows is noirish, than A Dangerous Thing is definitely a Western--*Adrien English Rides Again!*. Or perhaps *Adrien English and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre!*. (*said in movie announcer voice*)

Lanyon definitely knows how to infuse a book with the right sort of atmosphere. From the 2 old "geezers" telling jokes about Custer, to Jake eating his morning "vittles," to the Sheriff telling Adrien not to leave town, you never forget that you could be reading *Adrien English and The Trouble at Ol' Pine Shadow Ranch*. LA is gone...this here's mother lode country, wipper-snappers! Lanyon almost made me completely happy when Adrien said, "There's gold in thar hills!" ("Them thar hills" would've done it.)

What makes this book an homage and not a caricature (not to mention a fantastic read in general) is Adrien himself. He's just as surprised as the reader to find himself staring in *Adrien English & The Tale of the Missing Corpse* (last one I swear). I like how Adrien (Jake, too) is completely aware of the ridiculousness of his situation.

"I'm a thirty-something gay man with a dodgy heart. I sell books for a living. Who wants to read about that?"

Normal people in the "real world" don't constantly stumble across dead bodies and then solve their murder.

[Jake] "Adrien, people get killed all the time. Since when is it your job to find out what happened to them?"
"I'm not usually suspected of murdering them."
"You have been as long as I've known you."

Sometimes authors seem to forget that in the "real world" someone like Miss Marple would've been strongly suspected of being a complete sociopath who did more than knit baby booties with those needles of hers. Lanyon doesn't and that makes reading this series even more enjoyable.

As for the romance, it's bittersweet. Jake is the perfect romance hero: a loyal friend, heart of gold, hot--& more than capable of some serious emotional effery.

But Adrien isn't some Barbara Cartland heroine. At one point he says to Jake, "you came after me...every step of the way." And that's true, but Adrien also meets Jake step for step. There are no virginal innocents here.

25 years of romance reading tells me it's all going to come out right in the end--after all Josh Lanyon did say he believes in HEAs. The tortuous jerk.

I should have written a review after I finished each book, but since I didn't, this is a review of the entire series (no spoilers):

I love this entire series. In all earnestness. It is so clever, so funny, so unique, so beautiful, just the best...probably my favorite series of all time. Josh Lanyon is probably also my favorite author because no matter how short or long the story he spins is, you always become invested in its outcome and enjoy its duration. Adrien and Jake...wow...I just love those two with all my heart. Even when I was pissed off at one or both. There's five books, and so much goes on between Jake and Adrien, and outside of them, that the story is so hard at times, spans years, and works through a lot of obstacles, but you enjoy every second of it. The mysteries are so well written, that you really have no idea who done it until Adrien knows (and I usually can guess beforehand with other authors). The characters are all so distinctive and unique and colorful that you react to them on way or another.

Things never turn out how you think, some parts pain your heart, sometimes you're sitting there yelling at the book and waving your arms around, sometimes you are tearing up, sometimes you are laughing until your abs hurt, sometimes you are hoping so hard it consumes your head, and sometimes you are smiling so hard and wide and so happily that you feel all warm inside. And through it all, you won't be able to get Adrien and Jake out of your head (nor will you want to). I don't quite hold all other books to these because I know none will stand up to them, but they easily take the cake. I really can't say enough about or fully describe the intricacies of Lanyon's writing or how he just sunk a hole in one with this series, I can only urge you with all of my heart to read it, and I will buy all of them in paperback (I have them now on kindle) to reread sometime soon. Plus I still have the interactive sixth book to enjoy! So, potential reader, the bottom line is that Adrien and Jake and their mysteries will worm their way into your heart, and will never get out, so just read, enjoy, and cherish.

P.S. After you read "The Dark Tide" (the fifth book), read the interview Josh Lanyon did answering lingering questions about the end of the series (or more accurately, clearing up a few things and "checking in" with the characters about their life sixth months after the conclusion of the series).

This is my fourth Josh Lanyon book in a week. They're all good, because Mr. Lanyon is a talented and masterful writer. If you enjoy reading well-written books, then this one is for you.

The second in a series about a bookstore owner and soon-to-be-published author, this one visits the ranch Adrien inherited from his grandmother, but has avoided visiting for many years after her death. Too many memories.

This is a pretty standard mystery, but saved from ordinariness by the quality of Mr. Lanyon's writing.

Except, that is, for his ending. Yes, he always ends with a happily-ever-after, or at least the promise or possibility of one.

But, I've noticed that, over the last few books, his endings have been rather abrupt. There's never an epilogue, just an incredibly fast tying up of all loose threads as information - no emotional context, whatsoever. For some reason, that lack of emotional resonance in his endings is beginning to get to me. Like many people (and some of the reviews here indicate that others agree with me), I prefer a moving ending that leaves me with a smile on my face, a hitch in my breathing or a soaring heart - or any combination of the aforementioned.

Update: I have just finished the 5th, and last, book in Mr. Lanyon's Adrien English series, and I withdraw my criticism of his endings. The final book has the ending that wraps up all the others, and does so with such passion, economy of words and heartfelt dialog that it's simply stunning to behold. After reading "A Dangerous Thing", I consider the endings of the first four books not to be endings, but just intermissions leading to the profound and moving finale of the last one. For more, see my review of "The Dark Tide".
