Community Quote

... ‘The Back Passage’’ was written by James Lear and I have no idea if Mr Lear is in fact homosexual or not, but if he isn’t then he certainly knows a lot about this lifestyle and what makes a gay man tick. Now I know too. As I said, sacry biscuit. The reader will need to suspend reality ... Read review

It was Mitch whodunnit - to everyone

AdvantagesGraphic, extremely humerous, sexy, there is a plot even

DisadvantagesNone

"...I buy it: It looked intriguing, the title alone caught my eye and I enjoy a ‘whodunit’ type murder mystery but also like a bit of sexual shenanigans thrown in to liven things up a bit. It seemed the ideal read. I have been off work ill of late and Mother has been taking very good care of me and feeding me up as she always does.

Product Information for "The Back Passage - James Lear" »

Manufacturer's product description

Hardcore sex and scandal meet in this brilliantly hot and funny whodunnit. A seaside village, an English country house, a family of wealthy eccentrics and their equally peculiar servants and a determined detective - all the ingredients are here for a cosy Agatha Christie-style whodunnit. But, Edward "Mitch" Mitchell is no Hercule Poirot, and "The Back Passage" is no "Murder on the Orient Express". Mitch is a handsome, insatiable 22-year-old hunk who never lets a clue stand in the way of a steamy encounter, whether it's with the local constabulary, the house secretary, or his school chum and fellow athlete Boy Morgan, who becomes his Watson when they're not busy boffing each other. When Reg Walworth is found dead in a cabinet, Sir James Eagle has his servant Weeks immediately arrested as the killer. But, Mitch's observant eye pegs more plausible possibilities: polysexual chauffeur Hibbert, queenly pervert Leonard Eagle, missing scion Rex, sadistic copper Kennington and even Sir James Eagle himself. Blackmail, police corruption, a dizzying network of spy holes and secret passages, watersports, and a non-stop queer orgies mark this hilariously hardcore mystery by a major new talent.
