Brad's day job is with a mysterious CIA-type organization called Box 77 so he is not so far afield. But then the problems with the story begin. The plot is overly complicated involving a ghost, candles that predict the future and too many characters. If it had been played as a straight (you should pardon the expression) murder mystery it would have been more credible. And speaking of credibility, the murder of five people on a single night in a resort town like Key West would have been the crime of the century, not a routine homocide assigned to one lonely police sergeant

Secret agent Brad Fairfax is summoned by a mysterious voice to come to Cape Cod to claim the body of his ex-lover and best friend

Secret agent Brad Fairfax is summoned by a mysterious voice to come to Cape Cod to claim the body of his ex-lover and best friend. On site he discovers that Ross was murdered, the first in a string of four corpses to show up. Victims and suspects have two points in common: they are all connected to a gay guesthouse for wealthy clients where anything is permitted, and most have some connection to Buddhism

It was too early to check out the bars, but if anybody knew of Provincetown's notorious guesthouse it would likely be someone in the sandy. Playland at the ocean's edge. If he was lucky, he might even find a source that could tell him about the infamous Hayden Rosengarten.

A Bradford Fairfax Murder Mystery. Rounder Publications. By the time I was finished, however, I already had ideas for a second, Death In Key West, and this book, the third. An initial trip to Puerto Vallarta in 1997 opened my eyes to the city’s seductive allure, but it wasn’t till a second trip the following year that it opened its heart to me. On that stay, I made the acquaintance of a man who turned out to be Celine Dion’s agent.

Bradford Fairfax?" "Yes. I thought you should know Ross Pretty died of an overdose of Ecstasy last night. The parents who shunned him in life wouldn't embrace him in death. This was one prodigal son who'd never return home. Ross's real life had been with Bradford and his chosen band of brothers and sisters in those few years they'd spent together. Ross had known they would never desert him, shooting star that he was, hell-bent on burning through life before it burnt him. The real question, Brad realized, wasn't why Ross had died so soon, but why he hadn't died sooner.

This book was better than the first one!! I love the zany characters that dance in and out of the story. This one had be wondering and guessing who the killer was, boy was I off. It was engaging and I am happy to say that Jeff(after being with a slimy publisher that did not pay him for the 3rd novel and tried to publish it anyway and failed)is now publishing the 3rd said novel VANISHED IN VALLARTA on his own. As of right now December 2013 he is in Vallarta editing and revisiting places in the novel to update and revise the book (it has been 4 years since he wrote it), so hopefully it will be out soon. When I last spoke to him he said he was in the process of getting an artist to do the cover art...so it looks like it is a go. I for one can't wait to see what Bradford and his cute, blue haired boyfriend Zack get into next!!

I really wanted to like this book. Really. Love the setting. On the plus side, the main characters, lovers Brad (31) and Zach (21), are appealing (except maybe for Zach's blue hair which in Florida might be assumed to have come from a rinse in an old ladies' beauty parlor). Our boys are spending their vacation in Key West where they become entangled in a series of murders. Brad's day job is with a mysterious CIA-type organization called Box 77 so he is not so far afield. But then the problems with the story begin. The plot is overly complicated involving a ghost, candles that predict the future and too many characters. If it had been played as a straight (you should pardon the expression) murder mystery it would have been more credible. And speaking of credibility, the murder of five people on a single night in a resort town like Key West would have been the crime of the century, not a routine homocide assigned to one lonely police sergeant. Then there is the writing. I'm sure the author, Jeffrey Round, is a nice person but he tends to be a bit of a name dropper. In the space of just a few pages are numerous references to famous authors, movie stars, fictional and non-fictional characters, and just about everybody who has sung or written opera. But apparently this is part two of a series of novels featuring Brad (the first was set in Provincetown). One can assume that we can look forward to stories set in Fire Island, West Hollywood and, of course, San Francisco and that's a good thing. I'm sure each will be better than the last.

I love Key West and its diversity. I have been there over 30 times since 1980. I have read every book by Tom Corcoran, Lawrence Shames, Lee Sandiford etc. I guess I should have "looked inside" before purchasing this book. A good novel does not need blatant sexual overtones to make it a good read, especially gay overtones. I could not get past the "pool boy with the permanant erection in his bath trunks" to the every other paragraph of gay flirting and way to detailed descriptions of the characters of the plot line. I do not need to know about anyones body to the detail described in this "novel". It is funny, I think this could have been a decent read if there was less beefcake and more developement of the characters beyond the physical.

Thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Rounds writing style and his expressive and descriptive words...I was reading this book on the Go Train and was laughing out loud at points in the book which were particularily humourous!! The storyline provoked thought and interest and I found it entertaining throughout!! Hoorah to Jeffrey Round...you are obviously talented!! and stimulating to any reader gay or straight!!!
