Book review: Josh Lanyon: Stranger on the Shore

Griffin Hadley has set out to unravel the story of the kidnapping and disappearance of Brian, heir of the Arlington fortune, two decades ago. While Brian’s grandfather welcomes him in his home, the rest of family is less inclined to offer any support. Don’t they believe that the mystery can be solved so many years later or don’t they want dark secrets to face the light of day?
Even the handsome family lawyer Pierce Mather tries to get rid of Griffin, but it is quite obvious that the two men are driven to one another although they try to avoid it.

So, this book actually contains two stories: a love story and a detective story. And the reader is soon to find out that Griffin is much more involved in the story than it appears. This might be the reason why his life is soon in danger, and not only threatened by a dark voice.

Will things change when all of a sudden a young man appears who claims to be Brian? His grandfather wants to believe his story. And this could be the end of Griffin’s story if it weren’t for the fact that things just don’t add up. And now Pierce and Griffin join forces… well, and some more.

This is a very entertaining read. And I do love the stories of Lanyon although not all the surprises in this book are really surprising. But what the hack… enjoy it and have a nice read!
