Perry Foster’s return from a
disappointing trip is made even worse when he finds a badly
dressed dead body in the bathtub of his apartment.
Horrified, he flees the room, but the only help he finds is
his surly neighbor, Nick Reno. Then the body disappears,
and the police don’t believe it ever existed. At least Nick
grudgingly invites Perry to stay with him, so Perry doesn’t
have to go back to his place.
Nick Reno is not happy to be dragged
into Perry’s problems. The kid gets on his nerves and he
has his own problems. Unfortunately, he doesn’t believe
Perry made the whole story up. Against his will, he finds
himself helping Perry find out what’s going on in their
Can Perry and Nick figure out what’s
happening before it’s too late?
I absolutely loved The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks.
Josh Lanyon has such a knack for creating flawed yet
fascinating characters, and Perry and Nick are great
examples. Perry seems so fragile at the beginning, yet he
has a core of stubbornness and strength that keeps him going
no matter how tough things get. Nick starts out surly,
cold, and even mean at times, but he too has hidden depths.
As they attempt to find out who killed the man in Perry’s
tub—and where the body went—they learn a lot about the odd
inhabitants of the apartment building, and about each
other. The interaction between Perry and Nick kept me on
the edge of my seat just as much as the mystery did, and the
ending is even more satisfying because of that. The
Ghost Wore Yellow Socks has everything you could ask
for in a romantic suspense story: mystery, action, romance,
and emotion. In my opinion, The Ghost Wore Yellow
Socks is required reading for anyone who likes a
good mystery with a satisfying romance.
