Book Description

England, 1792

Revolution rages in France, and war with England is imminent. But Nathan Kennett is fighting his own battle. An undercover spy catcher, he's after an unknown informant who's supplying valuable secrets about the English coastal defenses to the French.

When he discovers a dead body in his employer's house, with Sir Peter Ross hunched over it, he has his suspect. Lean, strong and firm, Peter is Nathan's ex-lover—and a member of the aristocracy. He represents everything Nathan hates and has the arrogance to match. Peter broke off their affair with no explanation, but is he capable of murder, and treason besides?

Trying to keep one step ahead of his enemies, Nathan has only two days to identify and deliver the informant to his superiors in London. Peter swears his innocence and offers to help find the true culprit, but as riots swell in the streets, Nathan can't be sure he can trust him. Or himself, when they're together.

If you adore men behaving heroically and you love historical MM romance pick up a copy of Hunting the Spy by Tyler Flynn and buckle in for the ride.

Nathan Kennett is a proud but bitter and disillusioned man. The son of a wine merchant Nathan views all aristocracy as deceitful and untrustworthy. A view shaped as much by those who treated him with distain in his father’s warehouse and the Duke who first bedded him, then sent him away the morning afterwards with a penny for his trouble. Nathan is a spy catcher. He lives and works in a world of treachery and deceit. Nathan’s latest job is to identify the traitor who is passing English defence secrets to the French. Ensconced in the tiny Kentish fishing village of Deal the last thing Nathan expects is to find is his ex-lover, Sir Peter Ross, crouched over a dead body, holding a pistol in his hands.

Nathan and Peter had a short lived affair that didn’t end on the best of terms. Coming from two different classes Nathan struggled to reconcile his feelings about the aristocracy with how obsessed he was with Peter. He thought Peter was different but in the end Peter ended their relationship with an indifferent air and the cold and callous words “I don’t think there’s any point in our carrying on this relationship, is there?”

Did Peter murder the dead man? Peter claims he is innocent. Can Nathan believe Peter, a part of him wants to, a part of him doesn’t want to see Peter swinging from the end of a rope but can the two men work together to solve the murder. Can Peter be trusted?

Hunting the Spy is Tyler Flynn’s second book, and I loved it as much as his first, Chasing the Rebel. The story is intense from the word go, it’s action packed, full of glorious detail and it had more than enough plot twists to keep my head spinning around.

What I loved most of all though is the relationship between the Nathan and Peter. The story is told mainly through Nathan’s POV. It’s his feelings and emotions we see. What we know of Peter is through what he says and does. Nathan views all aristocracy as callow and untrustworthy, yet his job and his very life involves keeping the status quo as it is. Nathan finds his proximity to Peter difficult to handle. As Nathan spends more time with Peter he struggles to view him objectively. He’s losing his detachment and that could cost Nathan his life.

Peter comes across initially equally as angry and bitter, his flippant attitude hiding his real emotions. As the two men work together to identify the traitor and murderer their relationship, and how it ended, is gradually explained and what became obvious to me, if not to Nathan, is that Peter loves Nathan dearly, he just has no idea how to deal with his feelings or the man himself. Both men bring out the worst in each other, they taunt each other constantly with sarcastic statements and appear on the surface to barely tolerate each other, but it’s all a ruse to hide their true feelings. They are both drawn to each other like moths to a flame. It’s only when Peter is in danger than Nathan finally realizes what Peter means to him. “Only Peter mattered. Sir Peter Ross. Knight of the Realm. His Knight”

I loved Hunting the Spy enormously but the only thing that I couldn’t shake off was the impression that the plot was very similar to Chasing the Rebel. Same scenarios, same type of adversary, same plot twists, just a different situation with different characters, even the ending seemed the same type of ending. That wasn’t an issue for me as I loved Chasing the Rebel but it might become a niggle for some readers, it certainly won’t stop me soaking up more of Tyler Flynn’s work, he’s become an auto buy for me now.

2.0 out of 5 stars It’s not like Flynn is just plain telling 2 Dec. 2014
By Melody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Nathan Kennett’s attempts to stop spy plots involving the trade of British secrets to French agents has Kennett coming face-to-face with ex-lover Peter. Even with Kennett’s suspicions that Peter may be involved with anti-British spy activity, they are soon working together to deliver valuable information to London.

I wanted Flynn to set the scene more. This is Britain during the French Revolution. This is prime Scarlett Pimpernel-type territory. Only with less foppish hereos. Set the scene. Make me feel it. One of the reasons I picked up this book was because it was a male/male romance novel amidst French Revolution spies. How often does that come around? Own it! This is a romantic spy novel. This leaves tons of room for action all over the place. There were plenty of events at the top, but I wanted to be shown more than told. It’s not like Flynn is just plain telling, but there’s the opportunity to craft the action into scenes a more.

Kennett’s bitterness against the aristorcacy gets somewhat old rather quickly. Mostly because for a long time it only strikes one note. We get it. Kennett doesn’t have money/power/social standing. He thinks many of those that do abuse it. But for me to really care it needs some more depth. And by depth I do not mean a backstory in which when they had their original fling Kenneth got all up in arms because Peter offered to buy him a coat. Let go of your pride dude. Let the man buy you a coat. The instinct is great. It gives us some conflict between Peter and Kennett. Kennett has to get over what he thinks Peter represents and see the person beyond and whatnot. But it’s hard to have sympathy when he’s being a grumpy Gus throwing Peter’s social position back in his face every other minute.

For a romance, there didn’t feel like there was all that much development between Kennett and Peter’s relationship. The characters changes a bit. Good. They should be doing that. But they just didn’t spend that much time together talking about themselves as people. Mainly Kennett was accusing Peter of being a spy. Then they did some spy things that were somewhat haphazardly developed in terms of plot.
