A good read, and the world always needs more gay mysteries. At times you can really sense the story's age (1987) but the societal norms and issues of the time are poignant even today, serving as a reminder that as far as we've come, there is still a ways to go. Our intrepid reporter is everything I love about a good old gossip columnist. Like many mystery novels, this is difficult to discuss without spoiling the story (the title itself is a red flag) but I can say it was a quick, fun ride.
3.5 stars. Good gay mystery (originally published in 1987) about a successful society reporter still trying to recover from the suicide of his lover, a closeted cop, the previous year. When he tries to figure out the truth behind why one of his good friends murders her husband and his young girlfriend, he slowly realizes that nothing is quite what it seems. Unfortunately, I found the title to be something of a spoiler for the mystery.
