In a place that’s ‘to die for’, no one expects to die for real.
So muses undercover detective Bradford Fairfax after an anonymous caller tells him that his ex-boyfriend, party boy Ross Pretty, has died from an accidental overdose of ecstasy in “the gayest place on earth”: Provincetown, Massachusetts. Brad becomes convinced that Ross’s death is no accident, and his intention to bury his former lover suddenly turns into a full-scale investigation.
Brad quickly pins the murder on Ross’s ex-employer, the malevolent Hayden Rosengarten, owner of a high-end sex resort catering to a rich and famous clientele for whom discretion is everything. But when Rosengarten also turns up dead, the list of suspects suddenly grows: could it be Cinder Lindquist, the flamboyant female-impersonator? Or Johnny K., one of Rosengarten’s merciless henchmen? What about Big Ruby, the lesbian café owner with a big heart, but an even bigger gun? And why does everyone in P-Town seem to be a Buddhist? On top of it all, Brad finds himself falling in love with Zach, a blue-haired twink from his past.
Within this colourful cast of characters, it seems everyone has a secret to hide. Jeffrey Round has created a deliciously camp, sexy thriller with an unforgettable new breed of hero — one who always gets his man.
