Glen & Tyler’s Scottish Troubles (Glen & Tyler Series 2) by JB Sanders

This novel reminded me very much of the ’30 movie, The Thin Man, where a married couple, Nick and Nora Charles, “played” detectives while attending poshy parties (Nora is a Nob Hill heiress). The only difference is that here, Glen & Tyler are both men, and Tyler is way, way more wealthy than Nora. And how he uses his money makes this novel also similar to some James Bond movie, with all the hyper technology gadgets only in those movies you were able to see.

Really, the mood is not really different from those comedies, just pick the relationship between Glen and Tyler, they are married, so they are allowed to share a bed ;-) but the “censorship” behaves like they were in the ’30, if they are in bed together, one of them has at least one feet touching the floor, or if not, one of them is above the blanket… those were the rules at the time, and this is the rule for Glen and Tyler, they can prove they are in love in many other way, sharing secrets, exchanging kisses, bitching like only long-term couples are able to do (and considering they were friends way before getting married, they have the right to that title).

As for the gadgets, true, to an ordinary man they seem like impossible dreams, but Tyler is not an ordinary man, he is the fourth richest man in the world, and so, if he was to flight from US to Europe in a private airship… well he can, since he owns the airship; if he want to donate 50 million dollars to charity, again, for him it’s like peanuts, and they are tax deducible too.

Don’t read this series trying to find the realism in it, this is not a “serious” mystery/thriller, this is a comedy about two men with enough money and power to make their own real life video games out of everything, even attending post-graduate College in one of the oldest University in the word, and why not, making friends with some royalty too.

So buckle up and take a flight with Glen & Tyler on their airship, you will spend some hour in mindless entertainment… that is the best by the way!
