The Sun Goes Down

Sold by Simon and Schuster
2

Mitch arrives on the small Mediterranean island of Gozo, taking a holiday to escape from domestic and sexual trouble at home. He’s been invited by Bob Southern, a fellow doctor now working at the army garrison at Valetta, who wants to consult Mitch on "a delicate matter."

Bob is concerned by the apparent suicide of a young lance corporal, Ned Southern, who plunged to his death from Gozo’s cliffs. The authorities said he was being blackmailed, but Ned’s grief-stricken lover Alf insists that he was murdered. Suspecting an official cover-up of a queer scandal, Mitch gets to work on an investigation that leads him into a labyrinth of lies, false identities and secret sex.

As another body is washed up on the rocks, a gallery of suspects begins to form. Claire Sutherland, the ageing stage star who knows all the gossip on the island; Henry Jessop, the beautiful youth who may not be as innocent as he looks; Joseph Vella, a ladies’ man with a deadly secret; Major Telford, whose "artistic" photographs of the island men may tell a more sinister story…

With tension, humor and plenty of Mitch Mitchell’s exuberant sexual encounters, The Sun Goes Down cranks up the Mediterranean heat!

He lives in London. Straight Up "This might make a nice change-of-pace for erotica fans and mystery lovers alike, so if you want a book that packs heat, grab this one." —Dallas Voice "It's exciting, compelling and a rip roaring read of a story. I'll definitely be reading more Dan Stagg mysteries." —The Romance Reviews "This dazzling, fast-paced, roller coaster of an adventure story does not disappoint. With plenty of scintillating twists and turns, smoldering sexcapades, and the provocative, darkly-humorous narrative of Dan Stagg at its wheel, this is action/adventure that takes you places. Deep into the dark, seedy underbelly of the human mind and then deeper, into the vulnerable, soft places of the human heart. Top all this off with a visceral and tender ending and you’ve got what I would call a hole-in-one winner, one that I can’t wait to read again and again." —Rainbow Book Reviews
