A – Z |The Dark Horse

I’ve read The Dark Horse (The Dark Horse #1) by Josh Lanyon which means D now is completed as well. I guess most M/M readers have come across books by Ms Lanyon. I’ve read my fair share, though far from all of them. This, for example, is from 2012, so quite a few years old now. I think, of all Lanyon stories I’ve read, Winter (The Haunted Heart #1) is my favourite, but this isn’t bad either.

We have a tough detective and Hollywood actor who has managed to attract a stalker – all in classic Lanyon fashion.

As a teen Sean, the actor, had some mental health problems, and that makes everyone around act as if he’s fragile and unable to see things clearly. He might begin to believe them, but when his best friend and his lover start making decisions for him, things go from bad to worse.

While this is a mystery, a chase to get to the stalker before it’s too late, it’s just as much a story about a fragile relationship and what lack of trust and communication might cause.

It’s Lanyon, you know what you get, you know it’s gonna be good, so if you’re in the mood, check it out.


The Dark Horse by Josh LanyonLove is a dark horse—and Sean Fairchild is in for the ride of his life.

Paul Hammond is dead. That’s what tough and sexy LAPD Detective Daniel Moran tells his lover, Hollywood actor Sean Fairchild—and Sean wants to believe him, but what about those threatening postcards in Hammond’s handwriting? What about the fact that he’s seeing Hammond everywhere he goes? Yes, Sean’s had some emotional problems in the past, but that was a long time ago and he’s not imagining things, so why is Dan looking at him that way?

The last thing Sean needs is someone doubting him, especially when he’s competing for the coveted leading role in the screen adaptation of The Charioteer. But then again, as ex-lover and manager Steve points out, what does Sean really know about his new boyfriend?

Dan is a dark horse—and maybe Sean is betting too much on this relationship. It’s not just Sean’s career at stake, or his relationship, or even his sanity—-it’s his life.
