Top 5 interesting facts/tidbits about Fair Chance

1 – When I came up with the idea in Fair Game, the first book in the All’s Fair series, that the serial killer had “disposed” of his victims’ heads, I had not yet figured out where those heads might be hidden. Thinking about the possibilities gave me some creepy evening walks!

2 – There are several “Easter egg” moments in Fair Chance for attentive readers, including advice from Sam Kennedy (The Art of Murder trilogy) and condolences from Adam Darling (Winter Kill).

3 – I did not realize until Fair Chance that Elliot was the recipient of a Shield of Bravery medal. According to Wikipedia: “The FBI Shield of Bravery is presented for brave and courageous acts occurring in the line of duty or within the scope of FBI employment which may extend to major assistance to a task force or undercover operation, grave situations, or crisis confrontations associated with the highest priority cases of the FBI.”

4 – It didn’t occur to me until Fair Chance that Tucker had made a will naming Elliot as his sole beneficiary, and that there was probably enough money involved to give the police reason to suspect Elliot of wanting to get rid of Tucker.

5 – Originally the character of Sheba was not supposed to outlive her first appearance.


Fair Chance (All's Fair #3) by Josh LanyonElliot Mills comes face-to-face with evil in this follow-up to Fair Game and Fair Play from bestselling author Josh Lanyon

One final game of cat and mouse…

Ex–FBI agent Elliot Mills thought he was done with the most brutal case of his career. The Sculptor, the serial killer he spent years hunting, is finally in jail. But Elliot’s hope dies when he learns the murderer wasn’t acting alone. Now everyone is at risk once again—thanks to a madman determined to finish his partner’s gruesome mission.

When the lead agent on the case, Special Agent Tucker Lance, goes missing, Elliot knows it’s the killer at work. After all, abducting the love of his life is the quickest way to hurt him.

The chances of finding Tucker are all but impossible without the help of the Sculptor—but the Sculptor is in no position to talk. Critically injured in a prison fight, he lies comatose and dying while the clock ticks down. Elliot has no choice but to play this killer’s twisted game and hope he can find Tucker in time.


Bestselling author of over sixty titles of classic Male/Male fiction featuring twisty mystery, kickass adventure and unapologetic man-on-man romance, JOSH LANYON has been called “arguably the single most influential voice in m/m romance today.” Granted, that was yesterday.

Today Josh’s work has been translated into nine languages. The FBI thriller Fair Game was the first male/male title to be published by Harlequin Mondari, the largest romance publisher in Italy. The Adrien English series was awarded the 2nd Annual All Time Favorite Male Male Couple by the Goodreads M/M Group. Josh is an Eppie Award winner, a four-time Lambda Literary Award finalist for Gay Mystery, and the first ever recipient of the Goodreads Favorite M/M Author Lifetime Achievement award.

Josh is married and lives in Southern California.

    Congrats and thanks for the post and list of 5 tidbits. They make it sound interesting enough to read. Even more of a reason is that I loved the Adrien English series, but haven’t yet started on this one; so now with the third book it looks like I can do what I did with English – binge read.
