“Maybe you’ll be next, Mr. Busybody!”
From well-respected investigative journalist to resident busybody.
When former crime reporter Michael’s elderly friend Maurice suddenly disappears, he fears the worst. But Michael is unable to investigate, and no one is taking his suspicions seriously—least of all Nico, Maurice’s too slick, too smooth, possibly guilty boyfriend.
The only person Michael can think of who might listen is Leonard Drake, now a Lieutenant Detective with NYPD.
In fact, this excuse to contact his ex might just be what Michael has been waiting three years for.
Couldn’t put it down
The title—Requiem for Mr. Busybody—was very intriguing. Wasn’t sure what to expect, I only knew it was new and I had to read it. And I did, from beginning to end, in one go. Of course it was excellent, as I was sure it would be.
I enjoy second-chance stories—two people who know each other; who, for whatever reason, separated; then they reconnect. Michael and Len’s story, as short as it is, is big, it’s wonderful—it is perfect. And it lives up to the title.
Sooner rather than later I will re-read it...as I wait, not so patiently, for the next new book from Josh Lanyon.
