Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595385125, Paperback)The long anticipated third novel in the Adrien English series finds the “ill-starred and bookish” mystery writer and bookseller battling demons—maybe literally. After bookstore clerk Angus flees following terrifying death threats, Adrien must contend with a mysterious Satanic cult, a hot and handsome university professor, and his on-again/off-again relationship with closeted LAPD Homicide Detective Jake Riordan. And, oh, yes, murder.... PRAISE FOR THE ADRIEN ENGLISH SERIES. “Written in a terse and laconic style, this is an exciting and entertaining read.” —Colin Spencer, gaytimes on A DANGEROUS THING “Lanyon’s second book is a riveting romp, moving along at an incredible pace. Detective Jake Riordan’s coming to terms with his first relationship with a man manages to be touching without being cliche-ridden.” —Scott Matthewman, Gay.com UK on A DANGEROUS THING “The second Adrien English murder mystery, A Dangerous Thing, is a likable, fast-paced detective story featuring a gay bookseller/novelist turned amateur sleuth. Enjoyable enough to have fans old and new clamoring for a third.” —Gary M. Kramer, Lambda Book Report on A DANGEROUS THING “Funny, filled with great thumbnail characterizations…a thoroughly satisfying read.” —Eden Embler, I Love a Mystery on FATAL SHADOWS

Adrien English isn't really a detective, he's a bookseller and mystery writer who has a knack for attracting real life mischief and mayhem -- much to the displeasure of his sexy, sometimes-boyfriend, closeted homicide detective Jake Riordan. When bookstore assistant Angus falls afoul of a Satanic cult, Adrien falls afoul of Jake -- but despite the fact that his amateur sleuthing is playing hell with his love life, Adrien can't help but delving into this case of kooks, cults, devil worship, and human sacrifice.
