Timothy North is trying to find out what happened that long ago summer's Written March 16, 3. The attraction is there though, at least from Tim's side. I don't know, maybe I wanted a bit more here —I'm spoiled with great Josh Lanyon stories— and this felt okay but no more.
Card On The Table is pretty sweet and well done, but I'm sorry to say, already a day later has it more or less slipped my mind.
I really liked the Los Angeles and Hollywood feeling though. Both nowadays and in the still glamorous and glittering s. The cute romance story was nice as well. A traditional "Lanyon couple". View all 26 comments. Shelves: reread , mm-gay-fiction , read , mm-fave-authors.
I love the mystery. I love the classic Hollywood movie stars, the astrologist and the gangsters. I liked Sean Crisden's narration. But the romance, man, the romance. It depresses the ever living fuck out of me. Jack the Cop who I like despite wanting to yell at him that "what? Like you're so perfect? Like you have it all together? And the Christmas coda , people, jesus christ, that just made it worse.
Usually, they give a sweet little glimpse into whatever couple's relationship. And yeah, sometimes those glimpses involve someone being an asshole or a misunderstanding. Still love! Still love the Lanyon! View all 6 comments. Jan 31, Laura rated it really liked it. Ah, Lanyon love! It feels so right and wonderful to be back in the arms of a Josh Lanyon mystery layered with humor, tenderness, and love. Cards On The Table has everything I love in an old school, cold case mystery.
The dead body, quirky suspect list, library research, mob connections, dangers and dimples! A case that reaches back through time to long lost secrets surrounded by parties, gossip and glamour. But Tim is hiding a few secrets of his own along with a heart filled pain and hesitations.
Together maybe they can piece together the facts, uncover the truth, and mend a broken heart or two. Can Tim finally put his cards on the table in life and love in time to get his man and the murderer?
Lanyon is a master of weaving a mystery into a love story or is it a love story mixed into a mystery? Haha…Either way it works for me! Two powerful mysteries that feed off each other perfectly.
No one can sneak up and steal my heart quieter than Josh Lanyon. I never see it coming. Not until the tears hit my cheek! I highly recommend this quick, mini mystery.
The pages will tug on your heart strings and bring all your senses out to play. That cozy, full of life apartment complex was so clear to me. Hell—I lived in a very similar place for awhile. Blown light bulbs and all! Fear and laundry…haha…brings back so many memories. My favorite was the snap of linen and the cool top sheet fluttering down.
I adore a Lanyon world with all its character, sounds, places, and emotions. A warm, wonderful read filled with mystery and love that you will not want to leave. Hope you bring Josh Lanyon into your reading world soon. Very soon! He slammed the door shut and grinned at me. View all 11 comments.

But her older books do a hell of a job reminding me why I fell in love with her in the first place. Aldrich died at 24 having being stabbed multiple times and with a Tarot card left on her body. Inasmuch as Aldrich died 50 years prior, there seems to be a conspiracy afoot as Timmy tries to research what happened to her.
Even worse, the last person to try and investigate her death met a tragic end as well. This is one of my favourite Lanyon stand alones. He dabbles in that angsty denial that makes this book just that much more delicious and is a wound up ball of sarcasm that gets loosened by butt rubs. In fact, he looked like any worn-out corporate executive after a long, hard day of mismanaging employee retirement funds.
Her prose just sucks you into a vortex of curiosity. That minimalist poetry sprinkled through dialogue, monologues is just the best spice for every mystery.
We all were. The young never recognize how truly inexperienced they are. Eva was not a great actress.

Story blurb: Fifty years ago a glamorous Hollywood party ended in murder — the only clue a bloody Tarot card. Review by Gerry Burnie. Although I have come across the name Josh Lanyon many times while searching through online bookstores, I had not read any of his books until I picked up Cards On The Table [ Just Joshin, January 24, ], a short story but, oh, so satisfying. Timothy North is a former reporter who has turned his hand to writing about an unsolved murder that is well and truly cold. However, as in all such cases, there is something intriguing about it; and sinister as well. The next plot step up is that the case involved a beautiful Hollywood starlet and a bloodied Tarot card. However, as Tim digs further it becomes very evident that someone wants him off the case by pinning a sinister threat to his door—a Tarot card.
