Nathan Doyle & Matthew Spain – The New Thrilling Detective Web Site
As Nathan digs deeper, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay one step ahead of Matt Spain - and to deny his intense attraction to him. Nathan's secrets may not include murder, but has his hunt put him right in the path of the real killer?
This is a classic noir murder mystery and is just wonderful. The narrator really did a great job and listening to this really makes you believe you are huddled around a radio with the family for a Saturday night adventure. Both MCs are great. Spain is a widowed detective coming to grips with his sexuality after the death of his wife and returning from WWII. And Doyle is a man tortured by his need for other men and trauma from the war.
They find each other and tackle their collective demons. I hope there are more from these two as this is a HFN ending. Classic Lanyon and worth a credit. Any additional comments? The mood setting was perfect in the written word, and is carried through to the audio as well. The characters are well-rounded, and easily cared about. What else can I say? Josh is a fantastic author and Alexander Masters is a fantastic narrator. I read a review of another of this author's books recommending reading this book instead so I did, and it was superb, really a terrific read.
Plus, the narration by Alexander Masters was absolutely outstanding. I hope I enjoy the next Audible book as much as I enjoyed this one. I love all of Josh Lanyon's works. This was not one of my favorites. There were a couple of things that made it less favored. The Matt Spain character was great. Nathan Doyle I just never could muster up any liking or empathy for him. And the descriptions and atmosphere of fear for being gay in the 40's didn't sway me when it came to his whiney, self destructive TSTL behavior.
While I liked Matt alot, and his story gained my empathy, Nathan just annoyed me. I hate when a character experiences an emotional connection to the other main character, and immediately goes out and has sex with a stranger. Its one of my big turn off's in a book. Who was your favorite character and why? Matthew Spain. He's strong, loyal and has tons of integrity. A great character that you can root for! Did Alexander Masters do a good job differentiating all the characters? Yes, but thats about all.
