Publisher's Summary

It's moving day at Chez Holmes. Somehow, against Kit's better instincts, he and J.X. are setting up house together. But while J.X. is off at a writing conference, Kit unpacks a crate that should contain either old books or new china.
It doesn't. Within the mounds of Styrofoam popcorn is a dead body. A very dead body. There goes the neighborhood.

Any additional comments?

Josh Lanyon is, as always, fantastic as an author. He transcends his genre every time and you forget that you're listening to 'gay' fiction and you can just revel in the superior storytelling and characterisation. I've got a lot of his books in audio and I've never been disappointed - I can absolutely recommend anything he's ever created. The narrator here is absolutely brilliant - he drives everything along perfectly and had me glued throughout. So, so much fun and you won't regret the credit spent!

Wonderful book and amazing narration

Would you listen to The Boy with the Painful Tattoo again? Why?

Absolutely - this book is the third in a series and I love the characters and storylines The books are funny and romantic and tick all the right boxes . Kevin Free narrates all three and he is wonderful. He absolutely nails the voices and is without doubt my favourite narrator of all time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Kit - who is bitchy and funny but kind underneath and I adore JX, who is the perfect mix of loving and controlling, so please don't make me choose between them.

What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

There aren't enough superlatives to describe Kevin's performance. He doesn't just read - he acts the parts and does so brilliantly.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me laugh out loud, but it is also a romance so it made me sigh as well.

Any additional comments?

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an excellent gay/comic/ romantic/mystery read.
