About Kyle Michel Sullivan

Kyle Michel Sullivan is a writer and self-involved artist out to change the world until it changes has already happened in far too many ways. He has lived in London, Los Angeles, San Antonio, El Paso, Kansas City, Honolulu, Austin, Houston, and now resides in Buffalo, NY.

He has won multiple awards for his screenplays and has all sorts of books available -- from sunshine and light (“David Martin”) to cold and dark (“How To Rape A Straight Guy”, which has been banned a couple of times) to flat out crazy (“The Lyons’ Den) to mainstream (“The Alice ‘65”). His previous book, “Underground Guy”, was a return to his cold, dark roots, followed by his first SF-Horror novel, "The Beast in the Nothing Room".

He uses Tolstoy as his guide and tries to build characters as vivid and real as possible. He has a lot of fun doing it mixed with angst, anger, and amazement ... but that’s the lot of a writer.

He re-published himself in both paperback and ebook, beginning in 2013, with a couple in hardcover; anything earlier than that is out of print, except for “Boys Will Be Boys” (which contains a novella he wrote); it was published through STARbooks Press and continues to sell on Amazon.

If you want to keep up with him, here’s how -- (will link you to where to buy the paperbacks and hardcovers)

This was a very intense and at times complicated story. Jake is a man with a complicated past and messed up family trying to find out what has happened to his Uncle. Tone, is his lover. I didn't really get Tone, maybe if there had been a bit more of his backstory I would have understood their story-line a bit better. The main story-line was The Vanishing of Owen Taylor. It was intriguing, twisty, and fast-paced. It flowed well and the imagery was well done. Most of the secondary characters were well fleshed out and interesting in their own right. The character interactions and dialogue made sense and were realistic. At times I found it was challenging to follow how Jake reached the conclusions that he did, but everything came together in the end. I really loved how the little guy 'put the screws' to 'the man', but hated how the little guy 'put the screws' to the little guy.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a complicated murder mystery and doesn't mind it served up with a strong and angry gay man willing to fight back.

For those readers who may have triggers, there are two off-page rapes, an on-page attempted rape and a couple of violent gay bashing
