The Joseph Smart Mystery: A Gay Erotic Whodunnit
Simon and Andrew were lovers until Andrew moved to South Africa with his family. Now he is back in England, living at Tawleigh Manor in the West Country, and invites Simon to stay in the hope of a reunion. While here, Simon becomes intrigued with a 50-year old mystery surrounding the house. In 1961, a man named Joseph Smart bought the place, turning it into a gay 'den of iniquity' and shocking the neighbourhood~a phase which ended with a woman being found murdered, Smart arrested, and escaping from prison to return to the house and hang himself. No sooner has Simon arrived strange things begin happening. Does Smart have a hold over the place from beyond the grave? Entering the equation are Nick, a priapic local handyman--and Paul, a newspaperman who helps Simon with his investigation. But are these three sexy young men all they seem? Will Simon solve the mystery as his life is increasingly put in danger. More importantly, will he survive to tell the tale? WARNING: contains adult material of a sexual nature.
