Everyone's Dead but Us: A Tom & Scott Mystery

Mark Richard Zubro, Author . St. Martin's Minotaur $24.95 (277p) ISBN 978-0-312-34345-3

Lovebirds Tom Mason, a retired Chicago high school teacher, and Scott Carpenter, a former major league baseball player, find their New Year's vacation on the Aegean island of Korkasi violently interrupted in Zubro's breathless 12th Tom and Scott mystery (after 2004's File Under Dead ). First the owner of the world's "most expensive and exclusive gay resort" turns up dead in the couple's lodgings, then an explosion at the resort's headquarters kills many staff members. A storm cuts off the island from assistance as the body count rises. Suspects include those who reek of supercilious "A-gay disdain" and others of sordid criminal habits and aliases. Smoothly written but extremely talky, this has less crossover appeal to straight readers than, say, The Actor's Guide to Greed and other titles in Rick Copp's gay-themed mystery series. (July)
