Description

Private investigator Dan Sharp investigates the disappearance of three closeted gay men.

When a serial killer stalks downtown Toronto, private investigator Dan Sharp finds an unexpected link between the missing men that even the police are reluctant to investigate. A meeting with the chief of police confirms his suspicions, but does nothing to resolve the problem. Obsessed with uncovering the truth, Dan enlists a small group of friends to delve into illicit goings-on in the local sex industry. It’s only when the next man disappears, however, that Dan finds himself in a race against time to track down an elusive, manipulative killer who is a master of disguise.

Editorial Reviews

Lambda Award-winning writer Jeffrey Round should be a household name not just in households that value gay detective fiction, but outside them as well. I, who am not a connoisseur of or an inveterate fan of detective fiction, don’t read Round merely for his tricks of suspense. I value him for his true literary motive: an exploration of human relationships within the circumscription of milieu, circumstance, and character — in other words, the exigencies of our lives, especially of gay lives, that (as Edmund White puts it) express the introspective advantages of the “outsider, of the foreigner and of the pioneer.’

— — Keith Garebian, award-winning author of William Hutt: Soldier Actor

Round dramatically shows how homophobia, or at least apathy, can blind authorities to a monster victimizing a vulnerable community.

— Publishers Weekly

It’s a cracking good tale … perhaps the best in the Sharp series.
