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.

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.
