A true mystery. Sexy and exciting. 21. Juli 1998
Von steven@datatel.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
When I read this book I was impressed with the plot development and the characters. I felt as though I was reading about someone and something important. My only gripe about this one was that there was almost TOO much sex. I couldn't figure out if this was a mystery or gay porn. I felt as though I was reading two novels. The Mystery is done very well and so is the sex. At times I had trouble dealing with them both in a single novel.

Another great romp with Miles Diamond and pals! 15. März 2006
Von D. M. Annunziata - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the sequal to The Adventures of Miles Diamond: The Case of The

Missing Twin and Miles Diamond and the Demon of Death. I'm just sorry

Derek Adams didn't write any more! It's not really necessary to have

read the first two before reading this one, but certain previous

incidents are alluded to.

As with the first two books in the series, keep in mind, it's ADULT

FICTION, so if graphic (homosexual) sex offends you, don't read the


I absolutely ADORE Rudy in this one! I loved Miles from the first

paragraph of the first book, but his pal Rudy Vale really blossomed

through all three volumes. Usually the sarcastic brains of the

operation, Rudy is a mess in this one. His nephew is kidnapped and he

freaks big time. Miles, ever the screw-up, really steps up to the plate,

though. With his friend in trouble, he is kicking butt and taking names!

At about the point where I was thinking, 'wow, Miles is really on the

ball, isn't he?' Rudy askes him, "Are you getting smarter or am I

getting dumber?" And we learn a heck of a lot about Rudy's background

and family - we learn his full name, we learn about his ivy league past

- it's great! And Rudy is really a good friend after all - he saves

Miles' life several times (although, maybe that's only so he can have

the pleasure of killing him himself).

Miles, Rudy and Jackson are fiscally solvent now, after the Demon of

Death case. Jackson is off somewhere, so this one centers mainly around

Miles and Rudy. Miles opens a new office, hires an assistent, takes a

jealous lover case - all great, right? But once again, Miles can't keep

his pants on and this jealous lover is the murdering kind. With this guy

after him, he jumps at the chance to follow Rudy to Greece - maybe a

little time away will allow that jealous lover to calm down. Adam Scott,

Rudy's old frat brother, has sent a telegram requesting Rudy's help in

finding something called The Cretan Apollo. This intrigues Rudy, because

he has never heard of such a thing and he's heard of everything, so off

they go. Miles, Rudy, Gerald (Rudy's nephew) and Toby (Miles' new

assistant) all head for the steamy Greek Isles.

Unfortunately, they step off the plane into a hornets nest of danger,

murder and intrigue. Gerald and Toby are kidnapped, Miles and Rudy are

wanted for murder (Miles is starting to get used to being accused of

crimes he didn't commit). This time, Rudy takes his lumps along with

Miles - I think he's getting a lesson in what it's like being Miles

Diamond! And they both end up in chains in this one (definitely a

pattern for Miles). The case comes to a close on an island called

Aphrodesia (I'm not even going down that road).

It's an exciting chase and some of the situations they get into are just

too much. The assault on the bad guy's fortress is particularly

note-worthy. This time, though, it's not all Miles' fault.

Once again, though - continuity problems abound. I blame this on the

editors. Miles and Rudy lose their clothes in prison and no mention is

made of them getting anything to replace them. Yet a while later, they

are fully clothed - how'd that happen? And Rudy still has blue eyes.

What's up with that? In the first book, Rudy has gorgeous emerald eyes,

but about halfway through the second book, he suddenly has blue eyes -

that's a major faux pas in my estimation.

I give it five stars anyway, because it is so damned much fun.
