Review: Ghosts of Alcatraz by Carol Lynne

Suffocation, mutilation and dismemberment aren’t the normal outside influences that bring two people together, but inside the newly refurbished Alcatraz Prison, anything can happen.

Inmates begin dying in shocking and sometimes gruesome ways. The deaths prompt Warden Jensen Black to bring in sexy parapsychologist, Brian Phipps. With the help of Brian, Jensen hopes to get to the bottom of what is killing the men he is responsible for. What he didn’t count on is falling and falling hard for the smaller man with the heart of a lion.

The attraction between the two men is instantaneous, but before they could fully explore the depths of their passion, the ghosts set their sites on Brian. As their relationship begins to heat up, the danger escalates, leaving both men to wonder if they’ll ever make it off Alcatraz alive.

Ghosts of Alcatraz by Carol Lynne was not what I expected when I originally picked up the book, and I was glad because I received so much more. Parapsychologist Brian Phipps is sent to Alcatraz prison to assist Warden Jensen Black in solving the mystery of mutilated bodies that have begun to occur at the prison. It appears that ghosts have taken residence and Phipps’s know-how is the only thing that can eradicate them.

As per Ms. Lynne’s book, the sexual attraction was heated and instantaneous; loved that aspect of the book. Why not be able to fall for someone right away and act on that attraction? Both men are solitary characters that when together they form the perfect puzzle of energy, friendship and love.

Ghost of Alcatraz was a great who-done-it book that kept me intrigued and captivated as to solving the problem of the murders. As an M/M story, the attraction and sexual chemistry between Brian and Jensen was an added bonus. I would have enjoyed the story no matter what, because this reviewer felt the story itself stood on its own merit.

Parapsychology, hot men, lots of blood and gore-an inordinate combination if you want a great read.
