Forth into Light (The Peter & Charlie Trilogy Book 3) Kindle Edition
For two men with the looks of Adonis and Narcissus, it’s no surprise that Greece was the destination for a romantic getaway. Once there, however, the two men fall into the beds of others, with the duplicitous Martha striving to steal Charlie away from Peter after he has a moment of infidelity.
For the final installment of the Peter & Charlie Trilogy, Gordon Merrick widens his focus on the couple to include the village in which they’re staying, creating a web of deceit and lust that comes to a head in unexpected and satisfying ways, while the love between Peter and Charlie is tested repeatedly with the emergence of a passionate young man named Jeff. The bond between these two has spanned the years and the globe, but it could well meet its end here on the lush Greek shores.

The story started out being a disappointment to me because even though the contented, highly respected Mills-Martins were intrigued onlookers of the developing plot taking place in the lush Greek Isle where they lived, they did not in the beginning play key roles. I want to make it clear that in spite of that fact, I found the story and colorful characters to be fascinating, and as it progressed Charlie and Peter became drawn into the many intermingling aspects of the tightly woven story. As with most of Gordon Merrick's stories, it is intensely romantic, erotic, angst-ridden and active.
The one thing I find extremely off-putting in Merrick's stories is his determination to force his gay men into sexual encounters and relationships with women. I have nothing against the women in the hetrosexual relationships in the stories, but when women are foisted off on Charlie and Peter I deeply resent them. For one thing it feels forced. I despised Martha from the beginning, because I knew that she secretly had every intention of splitting Charlie and Peter up at her first opportunity so she could have Charlie to herself. In this book she finally outed herself and proved that she was the sly, manipulative witch I always knew she was. Of course it backfired in her face.
Though I was saddened by the way the story ended for one of the main characters whom I had become very fond of, at least there was a happy ending for Charlie and Peter. I hesitate to call it an ending because it finishes with no real finality to it. Merrick could have picked up with another story where that one left off. I wish he had.
old long lost friends. I read these books when I was about 17 or 18 years old.
Too long of a story for here, but they were lost to fire.... and to have them back again... well, I read each one in about 4 nights.
Gordon Merrick was an amazing author, who was ahead of his time.

The paintings have been bought by celebrated New York author Mike who is on the island visiting his friend George, a not-so-celebrated author with a drinking problem and a rocky marriage. George’s teenage son Jeff thinks he may be gay and develops crushes on Mike and our two heroes (and one of the natives).
Large dollops of sex are duly introduced as Jeff works his way through his crushes. And Peter consummates his heterosexual hiccup with Judy in scenes that veer between Barbara Cartland daintiness – “He opened his mouth, and she gave him hers” - and cinematic hardcore. Charlie is not simply well-hung; his endowment is “prodigious”. Graphic – not to say pornographic – sex is Gordon Merrick’s trademark, though I wonder if gay and straight porn belong in the same book: is there a demand for “bi-porn”?
Aside from the sex, which comes close to the “classic” turgidity of the SONG OF THE LOON trilogy, the book consists of long – even tedious – conversations about love and fidelity. There’s a “MacGuffin” involving a missing wad of dollars which, with the extended dialogue, has echoes of one of Terence Rattigan stodgier dramas. The debate about the “openness” of many gay relationships is an interesting one, to which Merrick makes a thoughtful contribution. FORTH INTO LIGHT brings his ultra-erotic trilogy to an uneven climax (if I may use that word).
