Book review: The Back Passage

James LearSummer is in full swing in the United States and I’m taking full advantage of the beautiful weather.  I love reading mindless but entertaining books sitting poolside or on the beach.

James Lear’s 2006 kinky mystery The Back Passage is the perfect book to bring with you.  I can assure you the book’s racy cover had some unexpected benefits of nervous parents shooing their children away from you while you are reading (bonus!) and or should you be reading this some place like Provincetown or Fire Island – it is certain to initiate a few conversations with guys (double bonus!)

The Back Passage is dubbed a murder mystery à la Agatha Christie.  No disrespect intended to Lear, but the book isn’t quite that caliber however that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth reading.  The book is set on a country estate in England in 1925 and has so much sexual innuendo and trysts it probably would have to be rated X if ever made into a movie.  While I found that distracting and overall a detractor, the book was filled with humorous settings and was a quick read making it perfect for the long weekend get away.

If intrigued you may read more about the book and purchase it online here.
