Best friends and sometimes lovers Edward “Mitch” Mitchell and Harry “Boy” Morgan have been in terrible jams before — their adventures of murder, mystery, and unstoppable sex have made The Back Passage and The Secret Tunnel international bestsellers. In A Sticky End, Mitch must face the possibility that Boy is involved in the chain of events that led to the suicide of his own colleague and secret paramour, Frank Bartlett. To absolve Boy, Mitch races around London finding clues while bedding the many men eager to lend a hand — or more. The policemen, working class gigolos, steam room bathers, embezzlers, and blackmailers that Mitch comes across create a tasty mystery and satisfying erotic romp.

Farewell, Mitch! Farewell, Boy!


For me-the best installment in the series.

Differently melancholic? Maybe.

Nostalgically touching? Yes.

More serious than the previous books(IMO).

But as always funny.

And as always- VERY DIRTY.


I don’t need to recommend it to anyone.

You finished the second book and enjoyed it? You have probably already started to spare money for the next book or made debt to buy it. Because my only complaint- James Lear is not cheap!
But the quality has its price.

A passionate reader from Germany. I learned to read at the age of 4 and never stopped since then, though my books from that time were very different from what they are now. English is my third language, and I'm sorry for all grammar mistakes I made in my reviews. But I assure you, that my reading English is much better than my writing English. I'm a seeker for the books that differ from mainstream, that provoke the reader or have very often very opposite ratings.
