It's his first book apparently. Good mitch Mitchell mysteries are much better. Try reading those first.

Definitely one for bed time!

This is James Lear's first - and recently republiched - book. For those of us who missed it first time round, the wait was worth it. This is Cold Glen to the author's later Hot Valley i.e. it contains what has now become a familiar mixture - and none the worse for that. The hero, scion of a Suart-supporting Highland family that has fallen on hard times is introduced in his teens to the pleasures offered by family retainers, specificaly the family groom, and he proves a quick learner. When a new tutor arrives there is clearly mutual attraction between the two hidden by resentment and reserve. But when the tutor is taken captive, our hero sets off in pursuit. He is not a young man to be deterred from his goal by moral scruple and Lear treats us to a series of arousing erotic adventures in which everyone from ruffians, to a ship's company, to army officers get their man. Lear deploys a trick he uses to good effect later in Hot Valley - increasing the erotic action by having the imprisoned tutor write to his charge of his own love for him and of his serial incapacity to resist having other sexual adventures on the way to a hoped-for reunion.
Wonderful, bawdy, supercharged gay erotic writing. Best read in the privacy of your own room.

This, I believe, is James Lear's first novel and judging by the prices it reaches here on Amazon a great collectible too.
There is an article on Lear in the current edition of Bent magazine. It is a naughty homo erotic piece of confectionery with added historic content.He has recently branched out into the detective genre with naughty bits. Definitely a bedtime read!

Quickly delivered and in perfect condition. A downright gay-book that pulls no punches on nearly every page. An interesting story line coming to an ending that is what we all want. Whether that ending is happy or not, you must read, discern and decide.
