Don’t Look Back by Josh Lanyon.

Museum curator Peter Killian wakes in the hospital, accused of ripping off his own museum. He doesn’t remember stealing an artifact or tough, sexy police Lt. Mike Griffin. But Mike remembers him and is determined to see Peter behind bars.
From Loose Id.

don't look back josh lanyonPeter was defnitely a character I grew to like. His initial amnesia seemed more of a defensive mechanism, a shield if you like, to keep a barrier between himself and having to deal with the painful reality that his life has become. Mike is very still waters run deep kind of guy and doesn’t let a lot go initially. He’s a cop, stoic but with warmth and a protective streak that runs a mile wide.

The mystery was nicely written and segued in well with Peters dawning realization that not everyone is as they seem. I enjoyed the secondary characters a great deal and they really made parts of the book.

While my focus was mainly on the romance of the story, I often find myself noting stylistic features. Although far from being an expert on the subject I know what I like. I enjoy Josh Lanyons writing because there is a certain sensibility about it. Sparse, well paced , with a leanness that makes you feel like no word is wasted. An absolute breath of fresh air.

Don’t Look Back was a pleasure to read, another wonderful story from one of my favorite authors. Get the book and it’s boobalicious cover here at Loose Id.

  1. I loved this book too. It’s much quieter than some of Josh’s recent releases but still a brilliant story. Peter was such a strong character and I felt a great deal of empathy with him over his situation and the confusion he felt.
