How long can a man pretend to be someone else without losing who they are?

“I really enjoyed this book from fellow Newfoundlander Matthew LeDrew. The corporate espionage and noir tone worked perfectly together to draw the reader into the world, setting up the twists later in the story. While I’m not normally a fan of romance, the elements here were developed well and did a lot of work in service of the story and Simon Monk’s character arc. A great introduction into Ledrew’s Engen Universe!”
– JRH Lawless, author of Always Greener.

Touch Your Nose is a seductive potboiler that pulls you in and leaves your head spinning. LeDrew’s prose elevates this tale of corporate espionage beyond the usual pulp fiction fare, subverting cliches, tropes, and expectations. It’s sexy, clever, and fun with a final twist that will hit readers harder than a right hook from Daniel Craig”
– Brad Dunne, author of After Dark Vapors
