Lake on the Mountain by Jeffrey Round - Gay Guys next book

Book Cover Lake on the Mountain by Jeffrey Round

This month the Gay Guys' Book Club chose Canadian author Jeffrey Round's Lake on the Mountain.  This is the first book in the Dan Sharp Mystery series by Round.  It won the 2013 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Mystery.  The book is available in print or as an ebook.  So grab a copy and come join us on June 1st to talk about the psychological thriller.  Here's a little description of the book:

"Dan Sharp, a gay father and missing persons investigator, accepts an invitation to a wedding on a yacht in Ontario's Prince Edward County. It seems just the thing to bring Dan closer to his noncommittal partner, Bill, a respected medical professional with a penchant for sleazy after-hours clubs, cheap drugs, and rough sex. But the event doesn't go exactly as planned.

When a member of the wedding party is swept overboard, a case of mistaken identity leads to confusion as the wrong person is reported missing. The hunt for a possible killer leads Dan deeper into the troubled waters and private lives of a family of rich WASPs and their secret world of privilege.

No sooner is that case resolved when a second one ends up on Dan's desk. Dan is hired by an anonymous source to investigate the disappearance 20 years earlier of the groom’s father. The only clues are a missing bicycle and six horses mysteriously poisoned."  From Jeffrey Round's Website: .

The book club will meet July 20th in the Rotary Reading Garden to discuss which books will be read in the Fall / Winter.  Bring a friend and bring a book to propose to the group!  For more about this program, click here.
