Pumpkin Eater: A Dan Sharp Mystery Book
Dundurn Books
ISBN 9781459708174

Following an anonymous tip, missing persons investigator Dan Sharp makes a grisly find in a burned-out slaughterhouse in Toronto's west end. Someone is targeting known sex offenders whose names and identities were released on the Internet. When an iconic rock star contacts Dan to keep from becoming the next victim, things take a curious turn. Dan's search for a killer takes him underground in Toronto's broken social scene — a secret world of misfits and guerrilla activists living off the grid — where he hopes to find the key to the murders.


"Jeffrey Round's new mystery, Pumpkin Eater, has a lot of moving parts and they all work beautiful to deliver a complex, suspenseful and touching story. "
Michael Nava, author of the Henry Rios Mystery series


"Pumpkin Eater reminds us why we keep coming back to Jeffrey Round, with a mystery that hooks us and some of the most engaging, complex and satisfying gay characters currently in print. Creepy, touching and funny in just the right measure. I look forward to the third installment."
Christian Baines, author of The Beast Without

Lake On The Mountain: A Dan Sharp Mystery Book
Dundurn Books
ISBN 9781459700017

Dan Sharp, a gay father and missing persons investigator, accepts an invitation to a wedding on a yacht in Ontario's Prince Edward County. It seems just the thing to bring Dan closer to his noncommittal partner, Bill, a respected medical professional with a penchant for sleazy after-hours clubs, cheap drugs, and rough sex. But the event doesn't go exactly as planned.

When a member of the wedding party is swept overboard, a case of mistaken identity leads to confusion as the wrong person is reported missing. The hunt for a possible killer leads Dan deeper into the troubled waters and private lives of a family of rich WASPs and their secret world of privilege.

No sooner is that case resolved when a second one ends up on Dan's desk. Dan is hired by an anonymous source to investigate the disappearance 20 years earlier of the groom’s father. The only clues are a missing bicycle and six horses mysteriously poisoned.


"Skillfully told…Round draws readers deep into Dan's physical and psychological worlds, balancing his protagonist's faults with his gifts as an investigator and father."
Publisher's Weekly


"Round is at the top of his game. The pace of this tale of love, loss, and betrayal never flags…a splendid read."
Gail Bowen, author of the Joanne Kilbourn series


Vanished In Vallarta: A Bradford Fairfax Murder Mystery
Rounder Publications

What happens in Puerto Vallarta, stays in Puerto Vallarta...  On a mysterious assignment in the famed Mexican resort town, gay caballero Bradford Fairfax finds he has a lot on his hands while celebrity-sitting a troubled diva in sunny Mexico. Third in the Bradford Fairfax Mystery Series, Vanished In Vallarta was my eighth completed novel.


The Honey Locust
Cormorant Books
ISBN 978

Globe-trotting photojournalist Angela Thomas has spent all thirty-two years of her life dreaming of far-off places. Nothing that has happened to her thus far can convince her that home is where she belongs. Every foreign assignment is a chance to trade in family conflicts for situations that may kill her but won't break her heart. From the battlefields of Bosnia to the jungles of Chiapas, this is one woman's extraordinary journey.

My third full-length novel, and fourth to be published, The Honey Locust is a literary work in the tradition of The English Patient. It took me a lot longer to complete than I would like to admit, but I am very proud of it.

"This is a book of insightful humanity, one that understands our frailty and understands that courage comes in many forms."
Anne Michaels, author of Fugitive Pieces and The Winter Vault

"The Honey Locust reveals the home truths of relationships in love and at war, baring the waste—and redemptive power—of intimacy."
Carole Bruneau, author of Glass Houses and Berth

Death In Key West: A Bradford Fairfax Murder Mystery
Cormorant Books
ISBN 9781897151433

The rich really are different from you and me. On vacation in Key West, special agent Bradford Fairfax meets James Quentin Ashley Vanderbilt III, an "heiress" to one of the world's biggest fortunes who is convinced his own father wants him dead. The follow-up to The P'town Murders, it was my fourth published book, but my fifth completed novel.

"Page-turning fun. It feels like a game of Clue with drag queens, thugs and crocodiles."
James K Moran, Xtra!

"A suspenseful, campy, rollicking ride with the perfect blend of serious and silly."
Ralph Higgins, Wayves


Rounder Publications (2nd Edition)

Warden Fields, an ingenuous college student from Toronto, is discovered by an Italian model agency and persuaded to work in Europe.

Originally published in the UK, this revised second edition has an author's foreword and a cover photo of me in my halcyon modelling days. (So sue me!) Available on-line through Amazon.com, or through this website (signed), as well as in Kindle and Kobo formats.

"A Cage of Bones reminds me of why I read and why I write."
Shyam Selvadurai, author of Funny Boy and The Cinnamon Gardens

First in the Bradford Fairfax Murder Mystery Series, The P'town Murders is a comic take on the classic murder mystery.

"A breezy read that's hard to put down!"
Paul Bellini, FAB Magazine

"Whether shaken or stirred, this exquisite cocktail is irresistible entertainment."
Paul Russell, author The Gay 100 and The Coming Storm
