The Pride of Lyons by Donald Peters

This book will take you on a crazy ride! A ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Horse racing, mystery, blackmail, male prostitutes, and murder all tied into one thrilling novel.

Sometimes what you are trying to find is right in front of your face.

This is a story about a gay private investigator, Quince, sent out to discover the story behind mysterious blackmail photos. What he ends up finding out is not what he expects at all.

I like how this story takes you through the solving process; it doesn’t leave you in the dark like some other mystery/suspense novels. It is almost encouraging you to guess along with Quince. Only at the end is some information withheld from the reader in order to frame the twist at the end – which was a thrilling one.

This book had almost the same sort of feeling as a James Patterson novel which really drew me in. The chapters are short, and the characters are all well rounded. Quince is the type of character you could make a series out of. He is intelligent and sarcastic, and his story line never runs dull. I would love to read another book with him as the main character.

Overall, 5/5 stars. I couldn’t put it down, and the ending was great. I never saw it coming!
