Geoffrey Knight and Ethan Day have written the ultimate gay Southern gothic novel, complete with a decaying old mansion, a somewhat unhinged mother, a swamp behind the house which in itself holds secrets and mysteries of its own, corruption and scandal not to mention a hot, steamy affair between two sizzling men. And the hotness does not necessarily come from the temperature! All that is missing is a dead man walking around minus a head and hand. I was totally immersed in the book from page one and not once did I find any page or chapter not able to hold my complete interest. The book is full of quotes, comments and asides that would make for enjoyable tidbits at a cocktail gathering. I have filled several pages of my chapbook with these as a reminder to pass along certain bon mots when the occasion calls for such.
At the conclusion of this book, we are promised more thrills, chills and sex with the publication of book 2 of the series, "A Fox in the Hole", and to quote the last words in this first installment, "....and we'll be waiting." I know I will with the other many fans of these two talented writers.
Jon Fox has his share of flaws but he is an immensely appealing character. He is haunted by his family's tragic past and he keeps an emotional distance from everyone. Jon is a successful private investigator who sometimes trades sex for information from his various contacts. His latest case finds him investigating Tucker Wilder and his attraction to the sexy screenwriter quickly complicates an already perplexing case.
Tucker Wilder's personal life is just as messed up as Jon's. Abandoned by his drug addicted mother, Tucker was raised by his no nonsense Aunt Millie. Returning to New Orleans after his career as a screenwriter fizzles, Tucker is reluctantly working as a waiter in his aunt's restaurant while he works on his next screenplay.
The secondary cast of characters is rather quirky but highly entertaining. Jon's mom, Savannah, fell apart following her husband's suicide and suffers from dementia. Virgil, Jon's dad's best friend, is a cantankerous old coot who has his hands full keeping both Jon and Savannah out of trouble. Mason Willis is Jon's uncle by marriage and he runs Fox Industries for Jon. Detective Rick Ford is Jon's trusted contact on the New Orleans police force. This seemingly straight cop and Jon often trade sex for info. One of the neatest characters in the story is an unusual pet that comes to Jon's rescue on more than one occasion.
While I enjoyed the overall story, the first half of the book is very slow moving and riddled with editing errors. However, the second half is moves much quicker with Jon and Tucker finally beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle together. There are still a few misspelled words but on the whole, the story flows much more smoothly.
The mystery aspect of To Catch a Fox is very well written and it has plenty of unexpected twists and turns. Closely guarded family secrets are revealed as the investigation unfolds. There is plenty of pulse pounding action as Jon and Tucker find themselves in some very perilous situations.
Despite a few flaws, To Catch a Fox is delightful first installment in what promises to be a fabulous series. The ending of the novel neatly sets the stage for the next book, and I am very curious to see what Geoff Knight and Ethan Day have planned for Jon and Tucker.
