A crippling knee injury forced Elliot Mills to trade in his FBI badge for dusty chalkboards and bored college students. Now a history professor at Puget Sound university, the former agent has put his old life behind him—but it seems his old life isn't finished with him.
A young man has gone missing from campus—and as a favor to a family friend, Elliot agrees to do a little sniffing around. His investigations bring him face-to-face with his former lover, Tucker Lance, the special agent handling the case.
Things ended badly with Tucker, and neither man is ready to back down on the fight that drove them apart. But they have to figure out a way to move beyond their past and work together as more men go missing and Elliot becomes the target in a killer's obsessive game...

Really glad I stumbled onto this book. A real jewel, well-written and believable. I'll be reading more of Josh Lanyon's works.
And thrilling....excellent book
Josh Lanyon builds a wonderful tapestry of characters within a plot that moves along very nicely to a satisfying if not too truncated mystery conclusion. If anything, he misses some opportunity to mine the full richness of character, plot and setting he so cleverly builds with excellent, propelling prose.
It's notable that he manages to make the tension between the stories love interest, Elliot and Tucker, a source of suspense that matches the growing anticipation unfolding with missing persons, murder and increasingly sinister forces at work around them.
I look forward to enjoying more of his work.
