More About the Author

Bestselling author of over sixty titles of classic Male/Male fiction featuring twisty mystery, kickass adventure and unapologetic man-on-man romance, JOSH LANYON has been called "arguably the single most influential voice in m/m romance today." Granted, that was yesterday.

Today Josh's work has been translated into nine languages. The FBI thriller Fair Game was the first male/male title to be published by Harlequin Mondari, the largest romance publisher in Italy. The Adrien English series was awarded the 2nd Annual All Time Favorite Male Male Couple by the Goodreads M/M Group. Josh is an Eppie Award winner, a four-time Lambda Literary Award finalist for Gay Mystery, and the first ever recipient of the Goodreads Favorite M/M Author Lifetime Achievement award.

Josh is married and lives in Southern California.

"Fair Game" is another winner from Josh Lanyon. It's a well-crafted and action-packed mystery of course, involving the disappearance first, of a student of college professor Elliot MiIls, and then other young men from the college campus where he teaches courses in History and Film. Mills has a history of his own, as a former ambitious "hotshot FBI agent" who retired from the Bureau after a receiving crippling gunshot wound. When asked by the parents of his missing student to act as their "consultant" in dealing with the FBI, Mills finds himself dealing with the formidable, handsome Agent Tucker Lance, with whom he has a personal history. Because of the nature and outcome of their past association, neither man is at all happy to have to work with one another.

The college setting, which Lanyon renders in characteristically believable detail,
allows him to take some fun satirical jabs at pretentious academic and artistic gobbledegook, not to mention the behavior of vapid young coeds trying to butter up the professor. As in Lanyon's other stories, someone is always cooking, in this case a delicious saute of mushrooms in butter. Before too long, someone should be able to compile a Josh Lanyon cookbook.

Will Elliot and Tucker find a way to cooperate without constantly making each other angry because of the unresolved issues in their mutual past? Will Elliot survive the increasing violent anonymous threats he receives? Lanyon skillfully ratchets up the suspense in both areas.

For those readers new to Lanyon, this writer creates exciting physical action sequences as good or better as anything in the Jason Bourne series. And the bedroom action is pretty exciting as well.

Enjoyed every moment of this book, as other reviewer had said, mystery is solid (I was so so happy to be fooled about the identity of the villain) and characters are well drawn and likeable. And I really loved the ending, loved that writer allowed a bit more warm and content feel than he does in some of his other books, often he leaves a lot to imagination and it is good, but I enjoyed hearing characters actually say on page what I wanted them to say to each other.

Elliot Mills is a former FBI agent who is now a college professor after a terrible knee injury while on duty took him away from the job that he loved. The injury also took him away from his lover and FBI agent Tucker Lance. Their affair might have been a brief one, but it was a passionate one that appears to have ended badly. When boys start going missing on campus, Elliot can't help himself with being drawn into the cases at the request of his father and the campus president. Little did Elliot know when he agreed to help that it would force him into close contact with Tucker.

In Fair Game, I believe Josh Lanyon does exactly what he does best - provides an interesting and fast paced mystery with well-rounded character development for all the major players and then still manages to throw in the heat and emotion amongst Elliot and Tucker that always give the reader a little hope things will work out for the two of them without the their relationship casting a shadow over the mystery plot. The pain and loneliness Elliot feels from the loss of his beloved job, his lover, and the way he has had to come to grips with a debilitating injury just oozes right off the pages. The mystery surrounding the missing boys is not one that the reader immediately figures out what is going on - it unfolds slowly but is still kept interesting. And best of all, each character has their own uniqueness and own voice which keeps the story fresh.

What I really liked about this book aside from the well written mystery that kept the pages turning is the way you see the communication between Elliot and Tucker start to blossom.

4.5 Stars! This was my first book by mystery writer Josh Lanyon. I can now see why he is considered to be at the top of his field and has won numerous awards.

The mystery begins immediately when a student goes missing. And then another. As a former FBI agent, Elliot becomes involved as a liaison between the university and the FBI agent working the case. Interestingly enough, said FBI agent turns out to be Elliot's former lover, Tucker.

Lanyon proceeds to dangle possible suspects and motives. I was sure I knew the "whodunit," and was wrong. I love it when an author can do that!

Mystery aside, I also really enjoyed the romance between Elliot and Tucker. They had a previous relationship that ended abruptly. Working closely together on the missing student case gives them a second chance to see how and why they went wrong. I love how Lanyon uses dialogue to really get inside his characters heads.

I probably would have liked to see more of Elliot and Tuckers romance, but that's just me! Very enjoyable book, which I highly recommend!!

Thanks for buying Fair Game!
Loved this book! It's right up there with Adrien/Jake, and since we can't get more of them, more Elliot is the next best thing.
