    The RS links will remain active (so I hope) as long as my account there lasts. I did re-uplaod all the files to UL. If something isn't working let me know, also if you suggest another hoster for backup.

    Introduction
    As I have a thing for gay crime, suspense and mystery books I thought I put up what I've collected so far. A lot are my own purchases, some are from other sources (credits and thanks to the uploaders!). Most are in epub (some pdf if I had trouble with the converting) and all in english. Most of the books are part of a series (my preferred read) not stand alone novels. Not any time I was able to track the complete series down, not all seem completely available digital either. If you can add any book to those incomplete series please feel free to do so. I try to keep things sorted for an easy find as best as I can.

    I hadn't the time to read all of the books myself, so not all files are properly checked nor can I take any guarantee that the content really fits my intention (I'm just judging from the description sometimes). I either got them already as epub or converted via the free available program calibre. If you need another kind of file than epub I suggest use this program to convert into whatever you need. If you encounter a problem with a file which doesn't work properly please let me know and I try to get a replacement. Also if a link isn't working anymore. Thanks!

    I'm aware that this list can't be complete, so if you know of any other author/series worth to be added tell me and I try to find it. Or if you can contribute anything to this collection feel free to share your link or file.

    Big thank you to everyone who contributed!!!

    Miles Diamond

    01 – The Case of the missing Twin 1
    The erotic adventures of intrepid detective Miles Diamond kick off with The Case of the Missing Twin. Miles is a genius in the bedroom, although he is often at a loss when it comes to solving crimes. Unwilling to let his limitations stand in his way, Miles constantly finds himself in a variety of compromising positions with a cast of randy studs—each of whom harbors a secret of two of his own. Miles diligently sets about uncovering everything within reach as he tracks down the elusive and delectable Daniel Travis.

    02 – The Case of the missing Twin 2
    In part one, our hero, Miles Diamond, narrowly averts financial catastrophe when he is hired by David Travis to find his missing twin brother. Unfortunately, Miles’ new case almost immediately throws him into a dangerous world of sex trafficking, drugs and international terrorism where he is soon in as much danger as the man he is trying to find. As part one ended, Miles found himself in the delectable, but dangerous, clutches of criminal mastermind Nelson Chin and his henchman, Jackson. We left Miles in a pit below the high tide mark, with water rising fast. Will he be rescued before the water rises above his head permanently? Will he be able to stop having hot sex long enough to find the missing twin? Will his best buddy, Rudy Vale, be able to resist the temptation of throttling him? To find the answer to some if not all of these questions, read on.

    03 – The Case of the missing Twin 3
    As part three opens, Miles’ pals Rudy and Jackson comb the records offices in Paris searching for clues while Miles is out beating the bushes in hot pursuit of his own investigations. New friends are flushed out and old acquaintances appear on the scene to help point the way as the intrepid trio continue their search for the missing twin.

    04 – The Case of the missing Twin 4
    After organizing a stakeout in a fashionable Parisian neighborhood, Miles spends his spare time getting to know the neighborhood. After a spectacular run-in with the wife of a very handsome baker, he meets up with an old college friend who has a wealth of information regarding the case. Miles and his pals finally get a line on Daniel Travis’s whereabouts when they manage to run the nephew of Daniel’s lover to ground. Thwarted by an airline strike, the foursome ride the rails through Spain, bound for Morocco.

    05 – The Case of the missing Twin 5
    Miles and his pals arrive in Morocco and are immediately sidetracked by a sinister drug smuggler who whisks them up into the remote Atlas Mountains. After several tense days, the crew make their escape. They arrive in the fabled city of Marrakech where the action and danger intensifies as they draw closer to the elusive twin. The action reaches fever pitch in a derelict hotel where Miles makes one last heroic effort to save himself, his friends—and the money.

Casey also has a magical foreskin. When he cock docks with any perpetrator, when his foreskin tingles to let him know the criminal he has apprehended is guilty, the magic within his amazing foreskin makes any man tell the truth. What’s more, they forget how and why they told as soon as Casey climaxes, too. But if anyone finds out about his foreskin’s abilities, he could be suspended, kicked off the force at the worst. Can Casey continue to perform his duties while using his foreskins abilities? Or will he have to reveal his secret to not only protect himself but Bruce as well?

It’s up to Casey to find the leaders of the ring and all who they associate with before they strike for the eighth time. A major undertaking for all concerned, especially for Casey. He’s volunteered to go undercover, pose as a high school football jock. Thankfully, he’ll be backed up by the only man he trusts, his work partner Bruce. But will that be enough? Can Casey pull off his first undercover operation and stop the ring from grooming their next target? Or will he become a victim himself?

When Jonah begins to discover there's more to Reid than meets the eye, he risks succumbing to Reid's charms-but unlocking the vault to all of Reid's secrets could lead him down a dangerous path.

    Mark Winslow

    01 - The Fisher Boy
    Spiraling off the tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown has long been a place of escape, new beginnings, and diverse communities. Famous as an art colony, known for the Cape Cod School, its gallery scene is vibrant. Gay life is everywhere. Boston comic Mark Winslow has arrived this summer with a group of fellow improv actors ready to break into Provincetown's club circuit. It should be a carefree summer, but currents swirl beneath the sunny surface. Does the tall ship out in the harbor herald an unusually large crowd of Scandinavian tourists? If not, who are the blond and ragged visitors seen everywhere? Then, at a philanthropist's dinner opening the season, Mark gets into a very public fight with the son of local bluebloods—an old school friend. It makes him the prime suspect when the lawyer is later savagely murdered out on the beach. Though he stumbles from the scene, Mark thinks his choice is simple: find the killer or be charged with the crime. How is Mark to separate good from evil? Could the disappearance of a famous local artist 80 years ago and his famous painting in the museum, The Fisher Boy, lie at the center of the evil gripping all of the people in Mark's life?

    Killian Kendall

    01 - Bleeding hearts
    When Killian's new friend Seth is brutally murdered and he is seriously injured in the process the police think it's just a random mugging. Killian thinks there may have been a darker motive and, with Seth's father, sets out to uncover the truth behind the possible hate crime. Before his investigation is over he will uncover hatred and corruption in small town America.

    02 - Reap the Whirlwind
    "Nothing can stay the same forever. We get in trouble in life when we think it can and will. Everything changes, or as King Solomon said in the Bible and The Byrds sang in the 60's, to everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven. It's not a particularly easy lesson to learn, or a fun one for that matter. I learned it the summer between high school and college, and my life would never be the same." Will's life is changing so quickly he can't keep up. He's moving out of his parents' home for the first time, changing careers, making new friends, and falling in love with the person he least expected. In the process, he's also learning a lot about himself. As if he doesn't have enough going on, his life-long best friend dies in what appears to be a drunken accident. But when Will receives a note hinting that it may not have been an accident after all, he finds that he can't rest until he knows the truth. With the help of Killian Kendall and his friends, Will begins an amateur investigation that will result in even more death. Will thought the biggest changes were behind him, but they had only just begun.

    03 - All lost things
    Killian Kendall's life is changing faster than he can keep up. He's graduating from high school, breaking up with his boyfriend, and starting a new job with a private investigator. He's barely settled at his new desk when his ex-boyfriend calls with a desperate plea for help. He wants Killian to prove his new boyfriend is innocent in the shockingly violent murder of his abusive father. Killian reluctantly agrees to take the case, little knowing how complicated - and dangerous - things will become before it's over. On the home front, Killian's surrogate parents decide to buy a historic mansion and turn it into a bed and breakfast. The house comes with a rich history... and maybe a ghost or two. Killian doesn't want to believe in such things, but he's quickly becoming convinced that something terrible happened to the home's original owners. The century-old mystery both terrifies and tantalizes Killian. In the end, he may be the only one who can uncover the truth.

    04 - The Truth of yesterday"We like to think of life as a story - complete with a nice, neat beginning, middle, and end. Real life is seldom that orderly. We often forget just how powerful the past can be. After all, it's over and done with, so how can the past affect the present? The truth is, while it may be over, it is seldom done. The past has a way of twisting our perception, our feelings, and even our reality. Things we thought long behind us can suddenly be very much before us." Killian is thrilled when his first real case takes him on a surveillance trip to Washington D.C. - and with his boyfriend Micah, no less. When Micah takes him out to celebrate the successful resolution of his case, Micah's past comes back to haunt them in a big way. Killian is stunned by what he learns, and even more shocked to hear about the murder of Micah's former lover, Paul. The truth threatens to tear them apart, but at the same time, Killian finds himself drawn to find Paul's killer. Meanwhile, Judy has asked him to investigate an old friend, Jake, whose behavior has changed radically over the last few months. She is worried he may be involved in something dangerous...and she has no idea how right she is. Entering into the perilous and often grim world of male escorts, Killian discovers that things are seldom what they seem and everyone has a past. The truth of yesterday becomes a lie tomorrow.

    05 – A Change of Worlds
    When Killian takes on an investigation into a series of thefts from a Native American archaeological site as a favor for an old friend, he never dreamed it would escalate into violence and murder. What started out as a seemingly simple case suddenly has much higher stakes than missing artifacts. One person is dead, one injured, and more lives are on the line...including Killian’s. Things aren’t exactly smooth sailing in Killian’s private life either. His boyfriend Micah has given him a huge choice, but his ex-boyfriend Asher’s unexpected reappearance has only clouded Killian’s decision. He must decide who he wants to be with, and quickly, before time runs out for all of them.

    Banis, Victor J.

    Stanley Korski

    01 – Deadly Nightshade
    "The first in a new mystery series from the legendary author of the Man From C.A.M.P. and Longhorns, Victor J. Banis. Straight cop, gay cop, and a woman who "isn't real." Tom and Stanley are on the trail of a drag queen serial killer, and along the way, they find themselves engaged in a more intimate pursuit, trying to resolve another mystery: their unexpected attraction to one another."

    02 – Deadly Wrong
    The police say "involuntary manslaughter," but a tragic accident turns out instead to be murder, plain and simple. And San Francisco Homicide Inspector Stanley Korski, on leave from the force and his unrequited love for fellow detective Tom Danzel, walks right into a murderer's web of treachery. Wrong, Stanley. Deadly wrong.

    03 – Deadly Dreams
    A painful past. A mysterious stranger. Footsteps vanishing in the fog. All Stanley wants is just to hear Tom say, "I love you." All Tom wants is Stanley safe. And the stranger? Ah, there's the rub--what exactly is it that he wants? Be careful what you wish for, fellows. You may get it. Dreams can be deadly.

    04 – Deadly Slumber
    The House of the Dead: a mortuary whose directors are drop dead gorgeous and terminally horny-and one of them up to mischief. Stanley and Tom try to separate the naturally dead from the murdered dead and find themselves awash with coffins-until they come to the one Stanley's name on it.

    05 – Deadly Silence
    The hospital says it was an accident. Patience Pendleton says someone is trying to murder her father - but who? Her demented twin, Prudence? Or Farley, the jilted fiancee, who thought he would be marrying money? Or Zack, the queer brother threatened with disinheritance? Or, might it be the ghosts of past evil...

    06 - A Deadly Kind of Love (Thanks to aghnoul, mobi)
    Nothing bad is supposed to happen in Palm Springs. At least that’s what San Francisco private detective Tom Danzel and his partner Stanley Korski believe. But when their friend Chris finds a dead body in his hotel room bed, Tom and Stanley drive out to help the local police investigate. What they discover is a gangster’s plot, a rather nasty green snake, and an elegant hotel that offers delicacies not usually found on a room service menu. The two detectives are going to have to rely on their skills and each other if they’re going to survive this very deadly kind of love.

    Jackie Holmes

    That Man from CAMP
    Resourceful as James Bond, flamboyant as Austin Powers, and gay as a Christmas goose, there's never been a secret agent quite like Jackie Holmes, the Man from C.A.M.P. These fast-paced stories, written and set in the swinging sixties introduce a new generation of readers to the fabulous adventures of gay superspy Jackie Holmes, the Man from C.A.M.P. Armed with a cache of secret weapons, a body that just won't quit, and a white poodle called Sophie who's trained to kill with her razor-sharp teeth, the blond bombshell with a license to thrill known as Jackie Holmes will blow you away! This collection includes The Man from C.A.M.P. (#1), Holiday Gay (#8), and The Son Goes Down (#5)plus an interview with the author by Fabio Cleto.

    01 – The Man from Camp
    Lou Upton pairs Jackie with the U.S. Treasury Department investigator Ted Summers to foil a Los Angeles gang of gays headed by the lesbian Big Daddy, who are counterfeiting such fine diamonds even experts are fooled.[

    02 - Color him gay
    Steve thought to cut in on the source of blackmail money that Dingo Stark was paying the boys who wanted to COLOR HIM GAY but his hatred took him too far. As his screams drift through the still air, it's up to the debonair secret agent, Jackie Holmes, that Man from C.A.M.P., to arrive in time to save the day!

    03 – The Watercress Files
    That debonair Man from C.A.M.P., Jackie Holmes, is back once more! This time the crusader for gay justice is thrown into the most fracturingly funny escapade of his career, being joined by an unbelievably incompetent household of characters, who go by the code name of WATERCRESS, and who insist on helping him with his (barely) dangerous mission. And in process we encounter the antics of such individuals as the straightlaced CIA agent, Craig Mathews, Aunt Lily, Aunt Nasturtia, Aunt Marigold, Honeysuckle the pianist, the gigantic Gladiola, and the very strange Nick. Of course, Jackie always winds up on top in the end. Sounds like business as usual for this ever-C.A.M.P.-ish series!

    04 – The Son Goes Down
    Working with Irish agent Jerry Shannon to stop a ring kidnapping blond teenage American boys who are fans of the dead actor Dean James, Jackie heads to Tijuana and Lisbon, accompanied by the adopted son of an old friend, a male-to-female transsexual.

    05 - Gothic Gay
    The intrepid man from C.A.M.P. takes on the spirits of a haunted castle, and brings down the house.

    06 – Holiday Gay
    Would you believe a lavender Santa swishing down the chimney? Well how about Jackie Holmes in little girl drag, chasing the jewels to the tune of the Pearly Freecock as played by Birdie Wing and the Swallow Children? Cruise in for a while...'tis the season to be gay and jolly...

    07 – Ralley Round the Fag
    Jackie Holmes, that man from C.A.M.P., dons dresses and matador tights, dodges bulls and bullets and the amorous advances of would-be suitors male and female, as he tries to avert World War III.

    08 – The Gay Dogs
    Jackie Holmes, the Man from C.A.M.P., is at it again, this time surrounding himself with the most outrageous crime-fighting team ever assembled: Queens, hustlers, and strippers help out, with many coffee breaks scattered along the way to pursue their favorite sports. Will the purloined pooches bite the dust? It's C.A.M.P. versus B.U.T.C.H., as Jackie Holmes and his furry friends race to a bone-gnawing climax!

    09 – Blow the Man Donw
    The man from C.A.M.P. finds himself in the legendary city of Atlantis, ruled by Emperor Mother Schmucker, where gays are the norm and straights accepted if they aren't too obvious.

    10 – Gay Safe by Sam Dodson
    Jackie suspects B.U.T.C.H. is behind the death of Dr. Perry Robert, a founder of the Church of the Homosexual Community; LAPD Detective Tom Lattimer and Agent Andy Parks show up to help

    The C.A.M.P. Cookbook
    That Man from C.A.M.P., Jackie Holmes, says: "And away we go! Back to that little room. No, not that one--the one just on the other side of that place they call the dining area. The kitchen, of course. Now, I'm sure you know your way around the other rooms, especially the one with the queen-sized you-know-what, but as I'm prone to mention from time to time, one of the ways to a man's heart is through his stomach, which means you'll have to spend some time in the kitchen cooking!" This very basic guide to cooking for your guy--or for anyone else!--is broken into thirteen chapters, each dealing with a particular category of food.

    Bidulka, Anthony

    Russell Quant

    01 - Amuse Bouche
    New Edition of Canadian favourite Russell Quant's first case. A gay wedding gone bad. A missing groom. An unsullied reputation at risk. Enter Russell Quant —cute, gay, and a rookie private detective. With a nose for good wine and bad lies, Quant is off to France on his first big case. From the smudgy streets of Paris, he cajoles and sleuths his way to the pastel-colored promenade of Sanary-sur-Mer. Back in Saskatoon, Quant comes face-to-face with a client who may be the bad guy, a quarry who turns up in the most unexpected place, and a cast of colourful suspects: the vile sister, the best friend, the colleague, the ex-lover, the lawyer, the priest, the snoopy neighbour —are they involved? Or is someone else lurking in the shadows? As he works through his case, Quant juggles his detective gig with the responsibilities of a personal life full of captivating personalities. Taking a cue from the style and humor of Robert B. Parker, and evoking Armistead Maupin with his wit and warmth, Anthony Bidulka's Amuse Bouche is a rich, saucy, and engaging read.

    02 - Fligth of Aquavit
    At the dead end of a desolate country road, a late night meeting suddenly becomes an ambush. Gay private detective Russell Quant is faced with personal threats he can't ignore, a friend who may be a foe, and a cagey client with a treacherous monkey on his back. As Quant trails a menacing blackmailer known only as Loverboy, he finds himself immersed in the midnight world of e-dating and parking lot romance. Lured to New York City, Quant tests his wit, wisdom, and wiles from the Old World grandeur of Fifth Avenue to the kaleidoscope world of Broadway's electric nightspots. The fast pace continues when Quant returns to Saskatoon, where he grapples with decoys and deceit, realizing that no one is as they appear. Threat turns into deadly reality and the need to uncover the identity of Loverboy becomes increasingly desperate.

Compounding Quant's bewilderment is the complete and perfect disappearance of his once very real friend, Sereena, who has become a ghost he simply can't find. With the Boogeyman always a few paces ahead, Russell struggles to keep the hounds of failure from baying. Travelling from Saskatchewan's summer storms to the menacing Lotus Land of Vancouver, he finally touches down in the Canadian Arctic, where tragic hope resides.

    Nick Fallon

    01 – A Deadly Game
    Nick Fallon, private investigator, gets a rude awakening when his past life unexpectedly catches up with him. Four years earlier, Nick, then a member of the Pittsburgh Police Department, was instrumental in arresting Francisco Garcia, a drug dealer and cold-blooded murderer. Now, Garcia has escaped from death-row, intent on making good his threat of reprisal for the death of his son in the shootout that brought down his notorious empire-a confrontation that also claimed the life of Nick's close friend, Sam Valance. Nick, only too aware of Garcia's ruthless and cunning tactics, fears for the safety of his family and his lover, Eric Jamieson. Nick knows in order to protect those he loves he cannot, for one moment afford to let down his guard, until Garcia is either apprehended-or dead. A Deadly Game is an erotic thrill ride, filled with danger, excitement and suspense.

    02 - A Deadly Deception
    Some things are not always what they appear to be So Nick Fallon discovers when he is hired to investigate the death of a young man whose body is found buried in a wooded canyon area of Los Angeles. Not that he's surprised. After ten years in law enforcement, Nick is pretty much used to the unexpected. However, he soon becomes frustrated by the bizarre behavior of his client John Hammond, and the apparent indiscretion of his business partner, Jeff Stevens.Nick's investigation leads him to a gay bar in LA, and from there to the still recovering city of New Orleans where he finds what appear to be the answers to the mystery. But what he has unraveled is only a small part of the truth. What remains is even more terrible-a trap-where the price of pleasure is death.Along the way, Nick is reminded of the often-high cost of friendship, and that trust and honesty are essential elements in any relationship-be it friend, or lover.

    03 – Murder Above Fourth
    Nick Fallon always knew there would be a day of reckoning between himself and Harold Forsythe, a millionaire who headed a secret group paying big bucks to watch young men and women have sex-sometimes dangerous sex, that had resulted in the deaths of two young men. When one of the owners of 'Above Fourth', a popular San Diego nightclub, is needlessly murdered, Nick vows to take Forsythe down, but in his determination to see the man behind bars, Nick throws caution to the wind. In a reckless and ultimately dangerous move, he not only puts his own life in jeopardy, but also the future of his relationship with his lover.

    04 – Murder by Proxy
    Nick Fallon and Jeff Stevens take on what they consider an easy case - taking photgraphs of a man cheating on his wife - but they don't expect to see the guy shot down right in front of them . What follows is a bewildering series of events - - and who can they believe? The dead man's fiancee, her gay brother, her less than loving father, or his wife - the woman who hired them in the first place? When the fiancee turns up missing, Nick and Jeff have their hands full trying to sort the truth from the lies - and when Nick is left to face dangerous gunmen alone, who knows what the outcome will be.

    Peter Brandon/Jeff Stevens

    01 – Portrait of Phillip
    When Peter Brandon, a gifted young artist awakens from a coma of three years, he learns that his lover, Phillip, was brutally murdered and no one brought to justice for the crime. With the help of Andrew Connor, his physical therapist, he slowly regains his strength, but it is not until he visits Phllip's graveside and receives an affirmation that his dead lover is somehow guiding him to the truth, that he feels the need to get on with his life. Through mutual friends, he meets Jeff Stevens, an ex-cop now a PI, and together they discover that Phillip was not the victim of a random gay-bashing, but of a deliberate act to silence him. They unravel a web of lies, deceit and a friend's treachery. During their investigation, Peter and Jeff find a mutual attraction for each other, a situation that is thrown into jeopardy in their final face off with Phillip's killer. A prequel to the Nick Fallon Investigations series but can be read as a stand alone.

    02 – A Portrait of Emily
    When Peter Brandon is commissioned to paint Emily Hastings' portrait, his keen psychic awareness unlocks the dark secret that has haunted her since childhood. Now on the brink of at last finding happiness in the arms of the man she loves, she is faced with her father's resolute desire to destroy her life.When her father, Charles Hastings, is found murdered, Emily is suspected of the crime, and it falls to Jeff Stevens, Peter's lover, to try and clear her name. His investigation turns personal when his ex-lover is also found murdered and he finds himself tracking two killers-at considerable risk to himself.His discovery that Hastings was involved in using the services of a child prostitution ring enrages Jeff and he agrees to be the bait in a police 'sting' operation but when that goes wrong, Jeff's life is suddenly, once again, in danger.

    03 – A Portrait of Andrew
    A holly jolly Christmas with friends is all artist Peter Brandon and his private investigator partner Jeff Stevens expect when they visit their buddies, Andrew and David, in New York City. All that changes when a party guest ends up murdered and Andrew is considered to be the prime suspect! The situation worsens when the murdered man's wife accuses Andrew of trying to persuade her husband to have a gay affair with him.It's up to Jeff and a sympathetic NYPD detective, Nick Fallon, to try to clear Andrew's name. They are, at times, aided and then hindered by Peter's erratic psychic abilities (or disabilities, as he calls them) that eventually lead them to a powerful and unexpected showdown when the real killer is exposed. Along the way, new friendships are made and tested-and one is irrevocably destroyed by lies and denial.This is another fast-paced page turner from J.P. Bowie that will keep you guessing all the way to the end-and perhaps, beyond!

    04 – A Self-Portarit
    Living with a private investigator can bring an element of danger into one's life as Peter Brandon finds out in this new novel by J.P. Bowie. When his partner Jeff Stevens disappears on a routine trip to meet a friend in LA, Peter's intuition alerts him to the fact that Jeff is somehow being held against his will. Determined to find him, Peter reaches out to his deceased lover, Phillip, through the unbreakable psychic bond that still exists between them.Traumatized into unconsciousness, he dreams and remembers the life-defining relationship he had with Phillip and the subsequent events that took him almost to the point of death-and back. On waking, and with the certain knowledge that Phillip will aid him in his search, he and his close friends Andrew and David, set out to find Jeff. They enlist the help of Nick Fallon, a NYPD detective, who flies in to help them and together they face a cult of Satanists led by Paul Lefevre, a mad illusionist promising his followers eternal life. Lefevre attempts to take control of Peter's bond with Phillip by holding Peter's mother hostage-a mistake that will cost Lefevre dearly as Phillip exacts a terrible revenge.A Self-Portrait is an entertaining mix of romance and suspense, of enduring love and friendship, and above all, the human spirit's indomitable will to survive.

    05 – Portrait of Olivia
    The old axiom of "What you see is what you get" cannot be said to apply to Olivia Winters, the seemingly gracious and vivacious daytime television host whom Peter Brandon is commissioned to paint after he and his partner, Jeff Stevens, appear on her popular show. Peter quickly discovers that underneath the veneer of warmth and sophistication, is a bitter and vindictive woman-with an ego bigger than the lavish Beverly Hills penthouse she owns.Her perfect world, however, starts to unravel when she receives threatening letters from a religious fanatic, and when her blackmailing ex-boyfriend attempts to reenter her life.Jeff, hired to investigate the source of the threats, is convinced that Patricia Hastings, the mother of their close friends, Emily and Anthony, may very well be the perpetrator. Patricia is particularly incensed when her son and daughter are interviewed by Olivia on the subject of child abuse-something Patricia has long denied her children suffered. Challenged by Olivia to counter her children's stories, an enraged Patricia physically attacks Olivia in front of a studio audience.Olivia seeks to benefit from the resulting media frenzy, but a murder and a suicide deflate her plans. She turns her fury on those around her, but is silenced when confronted by a vengeful killer-with only Peter's erratic psychic ability to prevent another murder.A Portrait of Olivia, the fifth in the Portrait series, is another entertaining mix of mystery, thrills, chills and the complexity of love and friendship.

    Oscar Wilde

    01 - Oscar Wilde and the Candlelight Murders
    London, 1889. Oscar Wilde, celebrated poet, wit, playwright and raconteur, is the literary sensation of his age. All Europe lies at his feet. Yet when he chances upon the naked corpse of sixteen-year-old Billy Wood, posed by candlelight in a dark and stifling upstairs room, he cannot ignore the brutal murder. With the help of fellow author Arthur Conan Doyle, he sets out to solve the crime - and it is Wilde's peculiar genius and his unparalleled access to all degrees of late-Victorian life - from society drawing rooms and the bohemian demi-monde to the criminal underclass - that prove the decisive factors in their investigation of what turns out to be the first in a series of bizarre and apparently inexplicable killings. Oscar Wilde and the Candlelight Murders is a gripping detective story that explores the secret world of Oscar Wilde – his surprising friendships, his complex marriage, and his unusual association with Inspector Aidan Fraser of Scotland Yard. Set against the exotic backdrop of fin-de-siècle London and Paris, Gyles Brandreth evokes Oscar Wilde's trademark wit and brilliance with huge flair, intertwining all the intrigue of the classic English murder mystery with a compelling portrait of one of the greatest characters of the Victorian age.

    02 - Oscar Wilde and the Ring of Death
    It's 1892, and Wilde is the toast of London, riding high on the success of his play Lady Windermere's Fan and celebrating with friends at a dinner party where he conjures up a game called "murder" that begs the question: Who would you kill, if you had no chance of being caught? Wilde and friends, including Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker, and poet Robert Sherard (the novel's narrator) write the names of their "victims" on pieces of paper and choose them one by one. After leaving the party, Wilde scoffs at the suggestion that he may have instigated a very dangerous game indeed… The very next day, the game takes an all-too sinister turn when the first "victim" turns up dead. Soon Wilde and his band of amateur detectives must travel through the realms of politics, theater, and even the circus and the boxing ring to unearth misguided passions that have the potential to become deadly poisons…not only for the perpetrators of the seemingly perfect crimes, but also for the trio of detectives investigating them.

    03 - Oscar Wilde and the Dead Mans Smile
    Paris, 1883. Oscar Wilde, aged 27, has come to the city of decadence to discover its charms, to rekindle his friendship with the divine Sarah Bernhardt and to collaborate with France's most celebrated actor-manager, Edmond La Grange. As he throws himself into his work (and his pleasures), Oscar discovers dark secrets lying at the heart of the La Grange company – and is confronted by murders, both foul and bizarre. To solve the crimes, to unravel the mystery, Oscar risks his life – and his reputation – embarking on a dangerous adventure that takes him from bohemian night clubs to an asylum for the insane, from a duel in the Buttes de Chaumont to the gates of Reading Gaol. This is the third in Gyles Brandreth's acclaimed series of Victorian murder mysteries featuring Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle.

    04 - Oscar Wilde and the Nest of Vipers
    The fourth of Gyles Brandreth's acclaimed series of Victorian murder mysteries, Oscar Wilde and the Nest of Vipers opens in the spring of 1890 at a glamorous reception hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Albemarle. All London's haut monde is there, including the Prince of Wales, who counts the Albemarles as close friends. Although it is the first time Oscar and Bertie have met, Oscar seems far more interested in Rex LaSalle, a young actor, who disarmingly claims to be a vampire...However, what begins as a diverting evening ends in tragedy. As the guests are leaving, the Duchess is found murdered, two tiny puncture marks in her throat. No one has entered the house; no one has left. Desperate to avoid another scandal, the Prince of Wales asks Oscar to investigate the crime. What he discovers threatens to destroy the very heart of the Royal Family...

    05 - Oscar Wilde and the Vatican Murders
    In OSCAR WILDE AND THE VATICAN MURDERS, the fifth in Gyles Brandreth's acclaimed Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries series featuring Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle, the two must penetrate the highest echelons of the Catholic Church to solve a macabre series of killings. 'Intelligent, amusing and entertaining' Alexander McCall Smith In 1892 Arthur Conan Doyle, exhausted by his creation Sherlock Holmes, retires to the spa at Bad Homburg. But his rest cure does not go as planned. The first person he encounters is Oscar Wilde, and when the two friends make a series of macabre discoveries amongst the portmanteau of fan mail Conan Doyle has brought to answer - a severed finger, a lock of hair and finally an entire severed hand - the game is once more afoot. The trail leads to Rome, to the very heart of the Eternal City, the Vatican itself. Pope Pius IX has just died. These are uncertain times. To uncover the mystery and why the creator of Sherlock Holmes has been summoned in this way, Oscar and Conan Doyle must penetrate the innermost circle of the Catholic Church - seven men who have a very great deal to lose.

    06 - Oscar Wilde and the Murders at Reading Gaol
    It is 1897, Dieppe. Oscar Wilde, poet, playwright, novelist, raconteur and ex-convict, has fled the country after his release from Reading Gaol. Tonight he is sharing a drink and the story of his cruel imprisonment with a mysterious stranger. He has endured a harsh regime: the treadmill, solitary confinement, censored letters, no writing materials. Yet even in the midst of such deprivation, Oscar's astonishing detective powers remain undiminished - and when first a brutal warder and then the prison chaplain are found murdered, who else should the governor turn to for help other than Reading Gaol's most celebrated inmate? In this, the latest novel in his acclaimed Oscar Wilde murder mystery series, Gyles Brandreth takes us deep into the dark heart of Wilde's cruel incarceration.

    Brite, Poppy Z.

    John Rickey/G-Man

    01 - Liquor
    As much a love letter to the Big Easy as it is to the demanding (and sometimes debauched) lifestyle of a chef, horror maven Brite's (Lost Souls) first foray into the trendy genre of foodie lit is a winsome entree. New Orleans natives and lovers John Rickey and Gary "G-man" Stubbs, affable characters from Brite's recent coming-of-age/coming-out tale The Value of X, decide to capitalize on Rickey's brainchild of opening a restaurant with a "whole menu based on liquor." Word passes through the gossipy Nola restaurant scene that two up-and-comers have a hot concept but no money, and soon enough, Rickey and G-man find themselves backed by celebrity chef Lenny Duveteaux, known as "the Nixon of the New Orleans restaurant world" for his habit of taping his phone conversations. At first doubtful of Lenny's motives, the two come to regard him as a mentor even as they question some of his choices. In one of the many conflicts that Brite embroils her main characters (all of which are fun but not too convincing), the yats (colloquial for natives) have to fend off increasingly threatening actions from Rickey's former boss, cokehead Mike Mouton, while experimenting with dishes like white rum–laced fettuccine Alfredo and veal kidneys à la liégeoise. Although Brite rolls her eyes aplenty at the silly dramas and pretensions inherent in any urban restaurant scene, her affection for it is heartfelt. The plot is pretty boilerplate, but Brite's characters are as refreshingly unpretentious as a healthy helping of comfort food.

    05 - Duck
    The ghosts of pre-Katrina New Orleans haunt Brite's latest culinary caper (after Soul Kitchen) in the form of great meals, good times and the carefree spirit that gave the Big Easy its nickname. Hardscrabble chef John Rickey and his lover, G-Man Stubbs, are still cooking up a storm at their restaurant, Liquor, and struggling to survive daily adventures in kitchen dysfunction reminiscent of Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. The loose plot of this picaresque tale concerns Rickey's tribulations at crafting an all-wild-duck menu for Ducks Unlimited, a Cajun hunting club. Though Rickey's self-conscious fretting at all the possible disasters that could happen build an element of playful suspense, there's never any doubt that this will play out as a happy Cinderella story from soup to nuts. Brite does a fine job of evoking the Crescent City and its soul through delectable descriptions of its unique cuisine and the quirky characters who prepare it. This is fun foodie fiction, and readers will scarf it down as quickly as a plate of blackened crawfish.

    Lost Souls
    Abandoned as an infant, Nothing reads his true name on the handwritten note that was pinned to his baby blanket eighteen years earlier, and discovers that he is the son of a vampire.

    Drawing Blood
    Twenty years after his tortured cartoonist father killed his mother and siblings, cartoonist Trevor McGee returns to the scene of the crime, determined to face the demons of the past and the dark force threatening to destroy him

    Exquisite Corpse
    A convicted serial killer leaves his prison cell a dead man and rises again to build a new life. His journey takes him to New Orleans' French Quater- to the decadent bars and frivolous boys that haunt the luscious dark corners of a town brought up on Voodoo and the dark arts. Anticipating a willing victim he finds an equal, something he never expected even in his wildest dreams... Two men thrown together by fate share dangerous desires and a love that brings fear along with lust, and leaves a trail of blood from London to the USA.

    Brockmann, Suzanne

    Troubleshooter series

    08 - Hot Target
    Known for her adrenaline-laced Navy SEAL romances, Brockmann displays a new, more political side in this brisk but bumpy romantic thriller, which advocates gay rights. Though the book follows the exploits of sexy, silent Cosmo Richter, the man of mystery from Brockmann's earlier romances (Gone Too Far, etc.), Cosmo must share the limelight with Jules Cassidy, a gay FBI agent and also a recurring character in Brockmann's books. Both Cosmo and Jules are charged with safeguarding hot Hollywood producer Jane Chadwick, who has come under fire (literally) for making a movie dealing with two gay war heroes. A few contrived plot twists find Cosmo and Jane initially butting heads, then coming together as friends and finally burning up the sheets as lovers. More compelling is Jules's struggle to stay away from his egocentric ex, an actor who conveniently lands a starring role in Jane's film, and from Jane's brother Robin, who's so deep in the closet that he has turned to drink. At times, Brockmann goes too far in pushing her agenda—even Cosmo is a card-carrying member of PFLAG who, thanks to his gay father, "can name every Barbara Streisand album ever made"—and readers won't need second sight to foresee the story's twists. Still, Brockmann's uncanny ability to give each character an authentic voice and dialogue to match will pull readers through this shaky installment.

    11 - Force of Nature
    Ex-cop Ric Alvarado, after receiving word that Florida mobster Gordon Burns may be working with international terrorists, manages to gain access to Burns's inner circle in prolific bestseller Brockmann's enjoyable 11th Troubleshooters thriller (after 2006's Into the Storm). Alvarado's feat brings him to the attention of Jules Cassidy, a maverick FBI agent and counterterrorism expert derided by fellow agents for being gay. The message of tolerance and the personal issues—Cassidy's relationship with closeted Hollywood leading man Robin Chadwick; Alvarado's crush on his attractive assistant, Annie Dugan; Cassidy's determined struggle for acceptance and recognition—at times interfere with the terrorist plot in the mix of undercover police work and romance, but romantic suspense fans should be well satisfied.

    12 - All Through the Night
    Brockmann's 12th Troubleshooter thriller (after Force of Nature) opens with gay FBI agent Jules Cassidy's marriage proposal to gorgeous A-List movie star Robin Chadwick (recently out of the closet and out of rehab). The two men's Boston wedding shower is crashed by Globe reporter Will Schroeder, and the tape of Will's revealing interview with Robin ends up on the Net. Jules's angry friends from high-tech private security firm Troubleshooter Inc. move to shut him down. With the wedding set for December 15, Jules is sent to Kandahar (ruining Thanksgiving), and an insane celebrity stalker believes Jules, Robin and their mutual ex, Adam, are robots who need to be eliminated. A winning, innovative runup to Christmas from bestselling Brockmann.

    17 - When Tony met Adam
    Tony Vlachic, a ruggedly handsome Navy SEAL, has kept his sexuality a secret for years under the threat of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." That is, until he meets Adam Wyndham, a charismatic yet troubled film star. Tony knows that he's risking his military career to approach Adam in front of his teammates. But Adam, nursing a broken heart, has no interest in a relationship. Still, neither man can deny their instant attraction. Tony didn't become a SEAL by accepting rejection, and his pursuit of Adam leads to one unforgettable night. But the next morning, Tony is ordered to ship out to Afghanistan, and he's forced to leave Adam with too much unsaid. As Tony enters a dangerous war zone, Adam is back in Los Angeles struggling with the demons of his past, while dealing with the very real possibility that Tony could be killed in action. A half a world apart, both men must face their feelings for each other -- and decide if what they've found is worth the ultimate risk, in the name of love.

    17.5 - Beginnings and Ends
    After years of playing the tormented actor, Joe Laughlin, on the hit television show Shadowland, Hollywood star Robin Chadwick Cassidy is ready for a change. Joe’s character embodies the real demons of Robin’s past—his struggle with his sexuality, his battle with alcoholism—and portraying the part has taken a heavy toll on his personal life. Robin’s husband, FBI agent Jules Cassidy, has noticed the strain and will do whatever he can to make Robin happy. And what Robin has in mind will forever transform his career, his marriage, and his family.

    Cochrane, Charlie

    Cambridge Fellows Mysteries
    Charlie Cochrane's Cambridge Fellows Mysteries are a series of romances with a touch of mystery - or vice versa - set in Edwardian England. They feature Jonty Stewart and Orlando Coppersmith, a pair of dons at St. Bride's college who indulge in a little sleuthing alongside trying to carry on an illicit romance.

    01 - Lessons in Love
    Jonty Stewart is handsome and outgoing, with blood as blue as his eyes. When he takes up a teaching post at the college where he studied, his dynamic style acts as an agent for change within the archaic institution. He also has a catalytic effect on Orlando Coppersmith. Orlando is a brilliant, introverted mathematician with very little experience of life outside the university walls. He strikes up an alliance with Jonty and soon finds himself heart-deep in feelings hes never experienced. Before long their friendship blossoms into more than either man had hoped.Then a student is murdered within St. Brides. Then another;and another. All the victims have one thing in common: a penchant for men. Asked by the police to serve as their eyes and ears within the college, Jonty and Orlando risk exposing a love affair that could make them the killer

    02 - Lessons in Desire
    St Brides English don Jonty Stewart is in desperate need of a break from university life. A holiday on the beautiful Channel Island of Jersey seems ideal, if only he can persuade Orlando to leave the security of the college and come with him. Orlando Coppersmith is scared. Within the confines of the university its easy to hide that he and Jonty are not just friends, theyre lovers, at a time when such a relationship is illegal. How will they conceal it in an unknown place, in full view of everyone? And how can he ever dare make love, even in the security of their suite? When a brutal murder occurs at the hotel where theyre staying, the two young men are once more drawn into the investigation. The race to catch the killer gets complicated when the victims son and prime suspect, Matthew Ainslie, finds Orlando too attractive to resist. Can they keep Ainslie at bay, keep their affair clandestine, and solve the crime? And will Orlando ever get up enough courage to get into bed with Jonty?

    03 - Lessons in Discovery
    On the very day Jonty Stewart proposes that he and Orlando Coppersmith move in together, Fate trips them up. Rather, it trips Orlando, sending him down a flight of stairs and leaving him with an injury that erases his memory. Instead of taking the next step in their relationship, theyre back to square one. Its bad enough that Orlando doesnt remember being intimate with Jonty; he doesnt remember Jonty at all. Back inside the introverted, sexually innocent shell he inhabited before he met Jonty, Orlando is faced with two puzzles. Not only does he need to recover the lost pieces of his past, hes also been tasked by the Master to solve a four-hundred-year-old murder before the end of term. The colleges reputation is riding on it. Jonty, crushed that his lover doesnt remember him, puts aside his grief to help decode old documents for clues to the murder. But a greater mystery remains;one involving the human heart. To solve it, Orlando must hear the truth about himself;even if it means he may not fall in love with Jonty the second time around

    04 - Lessons in Power
    Cambridge, 1907 After settling in their new home, Cambridge dons Orlando Coppersmith and Jonty Stewart are looking forward to nothing more exciting than teaching their students and playing rugby. Their plans change when a friend asks their help to clear an old flame who stands accused of murder. Doing the right thing means Jonty and Orlando must leave the sheltering walls of St. Brides to enter a labyrinth of suspects and suspicions, lies and anguish. Their investigation raises ghosts from Jontys past when the murder victim turns out to be one of the men who sexually abused him at school. The trauma forces Jonty to withdraw behind a wall of painful memories. And Orlando fears he may forever lose the intimacy of his best friend and lover. When another one of Jontys abusers is found dead, police suspicion falls on the Cambridge fellows themselves. Finding this murderer becomes a race to solve the crime;before it destroys Jontys fragile state of mind.

    05 - Lessons in Temptation

While Orlando assesses the value of some old manuscripts, Jonty plans to finish his book of sonnets. Nothing exciting;until they are asked to investigate the mysterious death of a prostitute. Then Orlando discovers that the famous curse of Macbeth extends far beyond the stage. Its bad enough that Jonty gets drawn into a local theatres rehearsals of the play. The producer is none other than Jimmy Harding, a friend from Jontys university days who clearly finds his old pal irresistible. Worse, Jimmy makes sure Orlando knows it, posing the greatest threat so far to their happiness. With Jonty involved in the play, Orlando must do his sleuthing alone. Meanwhile, Jonty finds himself sorely tempted by Jimmys undeniable allure. Even if Orlando solves the murder, his only reward could be burying his and Jontys love in an early grave

    06 - Lessons in Seduction
    The suspected murder of the kings ex-mistress is Cambridge dons Orlando Coppersmith and Jonty Stewarts most prestigious case yet. And the most challenging, since clues are as hard to come by as the killers possible motive. At the hotel where the body was found, Orlando goes undercover as a professional dancing partner while Jonty checks in as a guest. It helps the investigation, but it also means limiting their communication to glances across the dance floor. Its sheer agony. A series of anonymous letters warns the sleuths theyll be sorry if they dont drop the investigation. When another murder follows, Jonty is convinced their involvement might have caused the victims death. Yet they cant stop, for this second killing brings to light a wealth of hidden secrets. For Orlando, the letters pose a more personal threat. He worries that someone will blow his cover and discover their own deepest secret; The intimate relationship he enjoys with Jonty could not only get them thrown out of Cambridge, but arrested for indecency.

    07 - Lessons in Trust
    When Jonty Stewart and Orlando Coppersmith witness the suspicious death of a young man at the White City exhibition in London, they’re keen to investigate—especially after the cause of death proves to be murder. But police Inspector Redknapp refuses to let them help, even after they stumble onto clues to the dead man’s identity. Orlando’s own identity becomes the subject for speculation when, while mourning the death of his beloved grandmother, he learns that she kept secrets about her past. Desperate to discover the truth about his family, Orlando departs suddenly on a solo quest to track down his roots, leaving Jonty distraught. While Jonty frantically tries to locate his lover, Orlando wonders if he’ll be able to find his real family before he goes mad. After uncovering more leads to the White City case, they must decide whether to risk further involvement. Because if either of them dares try to solve the murder, Inspector Redknapp could expose their illicit—and illegal—love affair.

    08 - All Lessons Learned
    The Great War is over. Freed from a prisoner of war camp and back at St. Bride’s College, Orlando Coppersmith is discovering what those years have cost. All he holds dear—including his beloved Jonty Stewart, lost in combat. A commission to investigate a young officer’s disappearance gives Orlando new direction…temporarily. The deceptively simple case becomes a maze of conflicting stories—is Daniel McNeil a deserter, or a hero?—taking Orlando into the world of the shell-shocked and broken. And his sense of Jonty’s absence becomes painfully acute. Especially when a brief spark of attraction for a Cambridge historian, instead of offering comfort, triggers overwhelming guilt. As he hovers on the brink of despair, a chance encounter on the French seafront at Cabourg brings new hope and unexpected joy. But the crushing aftereffects of war could destroy his second chance, leaving him more lost and alone than ever…

    09 - Lessons for Survivors
    Cambridge, September 1919 Orlando Coppersmith should be happy. WWI is almost a year in the past, he’s back at St. Bride’s College in Cambridge, he has his lover and best friend Jonty Stewart back at his side and—to top it all—he’s about to be made Forsterian Professor of Applied Mathematics. With his inaugural lecture to give and a plagiarism case to adjudicate on, Orlando’s hands are full, so can he and Jonty afford to take on an investigative commission surrounding a suspected murder? Especially one which must be solved within a month so that a clergyman can claim what he says is his rightful inheritance? The answer looks like being a resounding “no” when the lecture proves almost impossible to write, the plagiarism case gets turned back on him and Jonty (spiced with a hint of blackmail), and the case surrounding Peter Biggar’s death proves to have too many leads and too little evidence. Orlando begins to doubt their ability to solve cases any more, and his mood isn’t improved when there seems to be no way of outsmarting the blackmailer. Will this be the first failure for Coppersmith and Stewart? And how will they maintain their reputations—professional, private and as amateur detectives?

    Philemon Raft

    01 – Willing Flesh
    When a series of bizarre murders occur in London's notorious East End, Scotland Yard's Inspector Philemon Raft is called on to solve the crimes, but even he is powerless to explain why the victims are displayed in public places - or why the killer insists on drilling burr holes in their skulls.

But Raft has an even bigger problem: a casual acquaintance is blackmailing him, and what she knows about his secrets could tear Raft's life to pieces.

    02 – Rag & Bone

    Jared Jarvis

    01 – The Actor’s Guide to Murder
    That was Jarrod Jarvis's catch phrase as the adorable, girl-crazy moppet on the eighties sitcom, Go To Your Room! It was a great ride until the tabloids caught the popular teen idol kissing another guy at the L.A. gay rodeo. "Gay" and "teen heartthrob" not exactly being career-making words at the time, Jarrod's star crashed harder than a Kathie Lee Gifford CD. Flash forward: Now happily living with his cop boyfriend, Charlie, and their dog, Snickers, in the Hollywood Hills, Jarrod's ready to hit the comeback trail. . .but he never imagines how fame will strike this time. At a reading with his psychic, Jarrod is disturbed to hear that someone close to him will be murdered and even more shocked when it turns out to be his best friend, Willard Ray Hornsby, also a former child star. When Willard is found face down in his own lap pool, the cops call it an accident, but Jarrod's far from convinced--and he's ready to play the Sherlock Holmes of West Hollywood to prove his conspiracy theory right. . .

    02 – The Actor’s Guide to Adultry
    In screenwriter Copp's wickedly amusing second whodunit (after 2003's The Actor's Guide to Murder) to feature former child star Jarrod Jarvis, the irrepressible detective—whose voice crackles like a gay Sam Spade's as played by David Spade—is hot on the comeback trail as an actor when his insane childhood stalker, Wendell Butterworth, is granted parole. In addition, Jarvis is floored when Laurette Taylor, his manager and best friend, plunges into marriage with the promiscuous Juan Carlos Barrancos, a TV soap opera actor. Jarvis and Charlie Peters, LAPD (his "partner in life, not crime"), attend the whirlwind ceremony at Hearst Castle and witness the ultimate reception faux pas—an uninvited guest falling into the wedding cake, done in by poisoned champagne. Jarvis is immediately suspicious, since the groom's former girlfriend was ejected from the proceedings and the victim was seen arguing with the groom. Even though it means taking a supporting role in a horror film starring Barrancos, Jarvis plunges into the investigation while dealing with an upstaging brat, Florida mobsters and the fiendish Butterworth, who yearns to kill his "long-lost soul mate." This light confection is certain to tickle readers who appreciate Copp's flair in mixing mystery with a Hollywood Confidential wackiness and won't mind romance between members of the same sex.

    03 – The Actor’s Guide to Greed
    Getting butchered at the hands of a serial killer in a 'high concept' slasher movie is supposed to resurrect Jarrod Jarvis' career. It doesn't, by a country mile - and soon Jarrod is hitting the boards in London, trying to make ends meet. And the boards are hitting back. Hard. Everyone - but everyone - hates him. And the leading lady, who hates him most of all, is dead. Really, non-stage-swandiving dead - and Jarrod is the Number One Suspect. Time to hit the streets, clear his name, and get the hell outta Dodge before anything else happens...

With each day that passes, Rafe becomes further fascinated by Jeremy Halliday...but the biggest problem isn't his attraction to the cop or his growing need for him. It's the tiny little detail of Jeremy being straight. Jeremy isn't as immune to Rafe as he'd like to believe and as they work together, sifting through a case that is more mysterious and dangerous than it seems, Rafe becomes distant. Knowing he might miss out on someone incredible, Jeremy has to figure out what and who he really wants. And soon. Nothing is black and white anymore.

    02 - Question Mark
    Coming back from being dumped is a struggle for the average guy. For Mark Newland, it's much, much worse. With a long string of broken relationships behind him, Mark is confronted with a choice: grow up and fix the man he's become, or continue on his lonely and bitter path. With reinvention in mind, Mark heads for a vacation in Bora Bora, hoping it will bring him closer to what he wants. He simply never figured it would be in the form of Hollywood's most eligible gay bachelor, Zane Whitlow. If Zane is suspicious of romance, he blames it entirely on his career. Never totally sure that men he's been with wanted him over a taste of his fame, he errs on the side of caution when it comes to love. Until he meets Mark Newland, that is. Only hours into his vacation and for reasons he can't understand himself, Zane abandons his usual safe approach in favor of pursuit. But Zane's not the only one who thinks Mark might be the perfect guy... With attraction, fear, and insecurity warring within Mark, will he have the strength to believe he deserves lasting love, or will his old ways come back to haunt him?

Wishing he were free from a mire of what might have been, he is offered a chance at redemption when he comes face-to-face with the man at the root of it all.

A proud and private man, he has never shared the story of the night with Christian; though years have passed he is still affected by it. When circumstances bring the two of them together again, Kevin is shocked by the depth of anger and passion that the younger man stirs. With the obstacles of Kevin’s resentment and distrust in his way, Christian is confronted with the same choice of six years ago: stay and fight for what he wants, or run and hide…

    01 – Murder on Carmac
    Gunned down in the street, author Helmut Brandt’s life ebbs away and puts a chain of events in motion placing P.I. Marco Fontana on a collision course with the Church and local community. Brandt’s research into the decades old death of Pope John Paul the First made him serious enemies within the Catholic Church. As Fontana digs into the case, he finds Brandt also had rivals in his work and in his love life. Rivals with motives for murder. Dueling with the Catholic hierarchy and combing through seedy gay hangouts, Fontana encounters dangerous characters and powerful forces intent on stopping him. When Fontana himself is attacked, he knows he must find answers before any more lives are lost. The web of intrigue and deceit is intricate, tangled, and deadly. Fontana deftly balances his work as a P.I. with his position as owner of StripGuyz, a troupe of male strippers; he must also negotiate the intricacies of love and relationships which he has been avoiding all too long. Will the solution uncover a decades old plot to kill a pope or will Fontana find that jealous rage or academic rivalry caused Brandt’s death? The only thing Fontana can be certain of is that Brandt's enemies have killed once and won't hesitate to murder a private eye who gets too close to the truth.

    When Marco Fontana enters his friend's spa on Pine, he doesn't find the peaceful retreat he expected. Brad, the masseur, is missing.

However, when the body of a popular journalist is added to the death toll, Brad's case gets sidelined. Marco refuses to allow his friend's death to be ignored and convinces an overwhelmed young police detective to bring Marco into the hunt for the killer. He finds plenty to keep him busy. Abusive ex-boyfriends, stalker clients, politicians, scheming businessmen, and Eastern European mobsters swirl together in a dangerous mix which finds Marco in some of the most serious trouble he's encountered so Life at home doesn't stop for Marco, either. While he searches for Brad's killer, Marco's stripper troupe, StripGuyz, brings him face to face with a stripper's abusive boyfriend and, with Jean-Claude, a new member of the troupe who innocently comes between Marco and Anton, upsetting the fragile balance existing between them.

    George Martin/Mike Foster (Avondale-series)

    01 - Bodies of Work
    George Martin and Mike Foster have been best friends since childhood, but recent events have brought them even closer together: Mike has moved into George’s house now that George’s unfaithful boyfriend has been kicked out. It puts Mike in a pinch, because he’s always loved George—maybe more than a best friend should. George doesn’t suspect Mike’s feelings, being wrapped up in his job as the youngest lieutenant in the Jacksonville sheriff’s office and investigating a series of murders. But it will all come to a head when George is stalked by a psycho and Mike steps in front of a bullet meant for George. George then realizes there’s much more to their relationship than he suspected.

    02 - Drag and Drop
    After surviving the threat of a murderer and finding love with each other, George Martin and Mike Foster, best friends since childhood, are settling into a happy life. George’s new promotion to the youngest captain in the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office keeps him busy, and his current case is no exception. The body of a fifty-year-old drag queen is found in the locked dressing room of a bar. As George delves into the subsequent murder investigation, he uncovers a dangerous trail of murdered drag queens and young gay men that intersects with another case involving porn films, torture, and worse. He struggles to make sense of the murders, but it’s Mike who asks the question that leads to a break in the case.

    03 - Break and Enter
    George Martin and his partner Mike live a comfortable life in Jacksonville with their Irish Setter, but something’s missing. Maybe George, a captain in the sheriff’s office, has just been working too hard again. There’s been a rash of break-ins in the area, and the homes targeted all seem to belong to older gay men. Then when the time finally comes for George and Mike to take their vacation, they pack up and head to their mountain cabin for two weeks—only to find a small boy living in their generator shed. Robbie, who bonds with George right away, had witnessed an unspeakable tragedy, but that is just the beginning of the trouble. Alone in the world apart from a very ill maternal grandmother, Robbie stands the very real risk of becoming a ward of the state if George and Mike can’t convince a bigoted judge to change his mind. Meanwhile, George still has a job to do: solve the mystery of the break-ins—and a murder—and track down who’s responsible.

Imagine his surprise when he finds one—and the young man needs help!Nate Braddock was plenty panicked at being kidnapped by fanatics who planned to “beat the devil” out of him. With Quentin’s help, and then his partnership, Nate finds the courage to take a stand against his mother’s religious intolerance and together they’ll confront an uncomfortable truth: telepaths may not be devils, but not all of them are angels either.

    01 - Trial
    Attorney Charles Barnett thought it was all over for him and his heart. In the three years since his partner died, he hasn’t felt so much as a spark of attraction to another man.

Recent widower Philip d’Autremont has been traveling in all the same circles as Charles, but somehow they’ve never managed to meet. Now that they have, both men find themselves falling hard and fast. But there’s more than one hurdle to Charles and Philip beginning a love affair, much less maintaining it: Philip is on trial for murder, a politically ambitious and homophobic district attorney is determined to convict him, and Charles is responsible for Philip’s defense.

Future plans and home renovations take their minds off the attacks, but the danger isn’t over yet: the people behind the attacks are still at large, and they weren’t acting alone.

    Cole McGinnes

    01 – Dirty Kiss
    Cole Kenjiro McGinnis, ex-cop and PI, is trying to get over the shooting death of his lover when a supposedly routine investigation lands in his lap. Investigating the apparent suicide of a prominent Korean businessman’s son proves to be anything but ordinary, especially when it introduces Cole to the dead man’s handsome cousin, Kim Jae-Min. Jae-Min’s cousin had a dirty little secret, the kind that Cole has been familiar with all his life and that Jae-Min is still hiding from his family. The investigation leads Cole from tasteful mansions to seedy lover’s trysts to Dirty Kiss, the place where the rich and discreet go to indulge in desires their traditional-minded families would rather know nothing about. It also leads Cole McGinnis into Jae-Min’s arms, and that could be a problem. Jae-Min’s cousin’s death is looking less and less like a suicide, and Jae-Min is looking more and more like a target. Cole has already lost one lover to violence—he’s not about to lose Jae-Min too.

As if his own personal dramas weren’t enough, Cole is approached by Madame Sun, a fortune-teller whose clients have been dying at an alarming rate. Convinced someone is after her customers, she wants the matter investigated, but the police think she’s imagining things.

The fact that his favorite author, Evan Knight, would be attending this noteworthy event, just added fuel to Jonathan's barely containable excitement. The Burrows Library had been literally willed into existence by the late Chester Burrows, an eccentric collector of homosexual writings. It was said that his, was the largest private collection of books on the subject. With such a colorful character as the library's benefactor and namesake, it was not surprising that the opening night celebration was slated to be the social event of the season.

The first segment in this compendium, Death to Innocence, a precursor to the Clint Folsom mystery series. illuminates the elements of the slow, but relentless, death of young Folsom’s adolescent innocence under highly unusual circumstances in narcissistic and hedonist Hollywood. The previously unpublished Death in Manhattan traces the path of Clint’s first attempt at a fully committed relationship. And memories of his relationship with Brad feature prominently in all of the following books. Death on the Rhine has Clint Folsom taking leave from his job in an investigation of an international crime syndicate and pursuing a killer to a Rhine River gay male-oriented cruise ship, the MS River God.

    Compendium 2 – added 3.1.2014
    In this second volume of the Clint Folsom Mysteries Compendium, which includes a previously unpublished Clint Folsom adventure, Death to the Past, the concluding months of Clint’s life as an NYPD special homicide unit detective are chronicled. This four-book collection, picking up a dozen years after the Death in Eden adventure that ended the first volume of the compendium, spins out the satyriasis influences of hedonism and sexual want and preference for rough-handling sex that developed in Clint in his early life. After several years of successful work in an NYPD unit using men’s weaknesses to other men in closing criminal cases, Death in Key West takes Clint on what was supposed to be a vacation in Key West, Florida, on the yacht of the producer of many of his movie star parents’ Hollywood movies. Clint isn’t even in the air for very long, winging his way to the Keys, before he is both reunited with an old colleague and lover and being propelled into a murder case that dredges up his own past. This mystery solved, he is on the move beyond New York City again in his professional capacity, first, on loan to the Colorado authorities in Death in the Rockies to try to prevent a murder of a key witness at a male brothel dude ranch, and then to Hollywood, in Death in Hollywood, to come to terms with his own parents’ mysterious deaths twenty-one years earlier. In a concluding, never-before-published adventure, Death to the Past, Clint races back to Manhattan to help save his new life-partner, Hank Halston, who, while under cover, has disappeared into the world of old-style gangster families.

    09 - Death to Blonds: Stolen Judgement – added 3.1.2014
    New York gay Homicide detective Clint Folsom, to the consternation of his partner and current lover, Danny Thompson, appears to be sinking ever deeper into his fetish for almost-constant, on-the-edge rough sex. Danny doesn’t know half the danger Clint is in, though, when they are put on two cases, one the murder of a key witness in a mobster trial and the other a serial killer on a spree on the docks in lower Manhattan, and the victims all fall into Clint’s demographic: sexually active, insatiable, and edgy bottoms who are in their late twenties or early thirties and blond, who have movie-star looks, and who cruise the gay bars of Chelsea and Christopher Street. Clint only begins to understand the danger himself as he sees the two cases begin to intersect—at him. He sinks deeper into the web of want and need as he struggles with the decision of keeping his discoveries about the cases to himself to hide his sexual binges from his partner and lover, Danny, or to not make the mistake his former partner and lover, Brad, did by investigating on his own and possibly winding up dead, as Brad did.

But as insurance investigator Dave Brandstetter is about to find out, the corruption in Ben’s police force did not die with him. By the time Dave arrives in the fading fishing town, a young activist has already been arrested for the murder. Only Dave seems to care that the evidence against the accused is laughably thin.

During a high-stakes paintball game, a hardcore supremacist gets hit by a very real bullet. Although the police claim the death was accidental—nothing but a stray round from a nearby hunting preserve—Dave knows that a man this hated seldom dies by chance. His investigation takes him into the strange world of make-believe war—a grown-up version of cowboys and Indians whose players sometimes have trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality. If Dave isn’t careful, he’ll find himself stained with something more permanent than paint.

    01 - The Death List
    Matt Wells, once a best-selling novelist, is suffering from such a bad case of writer's block that he seizes on the smallest opportunity, such as checking his Web site for e-mails from fans, to convince himself he is still a writer. But when the e-mails from one of his most loyal readers suddenly turn threatening, Matt is plunged into a nightmare so bewildering that it could have come from the pages of the kind of novel he used to write.

The blond haired blue eyed young men resemble the vice cop whose bed he secretly shares. Afraid of revealing his secret to the world, he may be too late to tell the one person that matters. Ryan Nilsson wants more than a friend with benefits. Out about his sexuality since high school, Ryan doesn’t like hiding his relationship with Tony but he’s not willing to end it. Asked to work with Tony on a series of murders, things heat up, and not always in a good way. When an old lover resurfaces during the investigation, Ryan makes a decision that may be his last.

    02 - A Helping Hand
    Deputy Sheriff Rich Taylor has many secrets. His sexuality is only the top of the list. Even his best friend Dan doesn’t know Rich is gay. For good reason.

An accident turns State Trooper Dan Fletcher’s life, and his car, upside down. With his right hand out of commission, he has to rely on his best friend for his basic—sometimes intimate—needs. After spending most of his life looking for the right woman, he begins to wonder if he’s been looking at the wrong gender—an impossible concept in their small-minded world.

On the streets, with no one to turn to, he’s resorted to selling his body to survive. Then Kyle—of all people—comes to his rescue. Dustin can’t fix the past but maybe there’s hope for a future.

When he finds a dead, dismembered bald eagle near his home, he's on the case. As guests converge upon his home, Peter searches the county for the person responsible...

There isn't much he wouldn't do for Will -- but he doesn't know how much longer they can stay teamed feeling the way he does.

Yes, Sean’s had some emotional problems in the past, but that was a long time ago and he’s not imagining things, so why is Dan looking at him that way?

It’s his job to keep Sean safe and in one piece -- happy is someone else’s problem. As tension mounts, Sean can’t help turning to Dan, while Dan is finding it harder and harder to say no.

What Brett doesn't count on is the instant and powerful attraction that flares between him and Rafferty. Once before, Brett took a chance on loving a man, only to find himself betrayed and broken. This time around there's too much at risk. But as the Bard himself would say, "Journeys end in lovers meeting."

    Come unto those yellow sands - Thanks to echolee11
    Lover of fine poetry and lousy choose-your-own-adventure novels, Professor Sebastian Swift was once the bad-boy darling of the literati. The only lines he does these days are Browning, Frost and Cummings. Even his relationship with the hot, handsome Wolfe Neck Police Chief Max Prescott is healthy. When one of his most talented students comes to him bruised and begging for help, Swift hands over the keys to his Orson Island cabin—only to find out that the boy’s father is dead and the police are suspicious. In an instant, the stable life Swift has built for himself hangs on finding the boy and convincing him to give himself up before Max figures out Swift’s involvement in the case. Max enjoys splitting an infinitive or two with his favorite nutty professor, but he’s not much for sonnets or Shakespeare. He likes being lied to even less. Yet his instincts—and his heart—tell him his lover is being played. Max can forgive lies and deception, but a dangerous enemy may not stop until Swift is heading up his own dead poet’s society

Miguel Ortega doesn’t trust anyone, but tough, street-smart Gabriel brings out the conquistador in his Spanish blood. But distractions are nothing short of deadly right now, not with his boss’s impending marriage to Botelli’s sister, which will ensure peace—and massive drug profits—for both families. On a trip to Mexico to set up drug supply lines, a violent confrontation proves they’ve got each other’s backs—to a degree.

The last thing he needs traipsing on the final shred of his patience is brash, handsome reality show host Fraser Fortune, who’s scheduled to film a documentary about the mummy’s Halloween curse.

    Lear, James

    Edward Mitchell

    01 - The back passage
    Agatha Christie, move over! Hard-core sex and scandal meet in this brilliantly funny whodunit. A seaside village, an English country house, a family of wealthy eccentrics and their equally peculiar servants, a determined detective — all the ingredients are here for a cozy Agatha Christie-style whodunit. But wait — Edward “Mitch” Mitchell is no Hercule Poirot, and The Back Passage is no Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Mitch is a handsome, insatiable 22-year-old hunk who never lets a clue stand in the way of a steamy encounter, whether it’s with the local constabulary, the house secretary, or his school chum and fellow athlete Boy Morgan, who becomes his Watson when they’re not busy boffing each other. When Reg Walworth is found dead in a cabinet, Sir James Eagle has his servant Weeks immediately arrested as the killer. But Mitch’s observant eye pegs more plausible possibilities: polysexual chauffeur Hibbert, queenly pervert Leonard Eagle, missing scion Rex, sadistic copper Kennington, even Sir James Eagle himself. Blackmail, police corruption, a dizzying network of spyholes and secret passages, watersports, and a nonstop queer orgy backstairs and everyplace else mark this hilariously hard-core mystery by a major new talent.

    Dan Stagg

    01 – The Hardest Thing – added 3.1.2014
    Once a major in the U.S. Army, Dan Stagg fell afoul of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. In his late 30s, tall, and muscular, Dan is prone to violence, always upholding what he views as justice. He’s offered a great deal of money to protect the young male secretary of a powerful real estate broker. The vain, shallow—but most of all hot—young man’s idea of protection includes sex. Dan quickly realizes something strange is going on: he’s being used as a shield for a much more sinister operation and must chose between easy money and sex or the ideals that he embodied in the Army. Why should he do the right thing—particularly when the army betrayed him? The Hardest Thing is a sexy gay mystery as only James Lear can write it: filled with lots of gay sexual encounters, romance, sweat, violence, and conspiracy.

    01 - The Secret Files of Sherlock Holmes
    The hunky young Watson and the handsome, youthful Holmes fall into each other's arms in this delirious pastiche that pays homage to the underlying homosexual subtext in the Sherlock Holmes tales. This unique collection explores the famously sexual tension between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in Arthur Conan Doyle's original short stories. The Secret Files of Sherlock Holmes focuses on the gaps and silences in Watson's narratives, offering possible ways in which the pair could have first become lovers, and then recounts further their amorous couplings and erotic escapades. There have been many pastiches of Sherlock Holmes since the original stories first appeared. But while several of these have hinted at a sexual relationship between Holmes and Watson, none have explored this idea so explicitly. Here is a book that will be enjoyed by fans of the Conan Doyle canon as well as readers of historical and erotic fiction.

    02 - The Adventures at Baskerville Hall
    Holmes and Watson lovers? And the passion set loose between these two hunks heats up even the cold London nights. But first they must deal with that most canonical of blackmailers, Charles Augustus Milverton, who is blackmailing the pair, threatening to reveal their secret romance. Then Holmes and Watson detect and love their way through six more cases including a whole new perspective on doings at the legendary Baskerville Hall. Another astounding collection of Sherlockian erotica by our resident genius of the genre!

    Henry Rios

    01 – The Little Death
    A burnt-out public defender battling alcoholism, Henry Rios has reached a crossroads in his life. While interviewing his former lover Hugh Paris in jail, Rios goes through the motions, but notices that Paris is far more polished and well off than the usual suspects arrested for drug possession. Paris is mysteriously bailed out—but a few weeks later, he turns up on Rios’s doorstep. Skittish and paranoid, he admits to using heroin and says he’s afraid that his wealthy grandfather wants to murder him. Rios tries to help Paris get clean, but when Paris is found dead of an apparent heroin overdose, Rios is the only one who considers foul play. Determined to find Paris’s killer, Rios knocks on San Francisco’s most gilded doors, where he discovers a family tainted by jealousy, greed, and hate. They’ve been warped by a fortune someone’s willing to kill—and kill again—to possess.

    02 – Goldenboy
    It’s a cause Henry Rios can’t resist: defending a young gay man on trial for killing the coworker who threatened to out him. Jim Pears is charged with first-degree murder; Pears says he’s innocent but the evidence is damning. Pears was found covered in the victim’s blood and with the murder weapon in his hand. But nothing about the People v. Jim Pears is what it seems. Rios is asked to join the case because he knows first-hand the pressures and threats that come with being gay in 1980s California. In the midst of one of the most complex trials of his career, Rios meets and falls in love with Josh Mandel, the prosecutor’s star witness. For this defense attorney, fighting for justice has never been more personal. And the stakes are no less than life and death.

    05 – The Death of Friends
    Chris Chandler, a long-married and closeted California state superior court judge, has been found dead in his chambers—beaten to death with his recent Judge of the Year award. When his young lover, Zack Bowen, is arrested, Henry Rios takes on Bowen’s defense. For Rios, who has kept Judge Chandler’s secret since law school, it means going up against a closed community—including Chandler’s angry wife and son—to defend a man he believes innocent. Then Bowen vanishes. As Rios copes with the loss of a friend, and the impending death of his lover, Josh, he finds himself front and center in a case that becomes a test of his own moral courage.

    06 – The Burnign Plain
    Defense attorney Henry Rios knows how the system can be weighted against you . . . especially if you’re gay. His worst nightmare becomes a reality when a man he had been on a date with the night before is slain. Relentlessly pursued by a homophobic Los Angeles Police Department cop, Rios goes from prime suspect to target when more gay men are savagely murdered. The victims all suffer the same fate: They’re beaten to death, with a hate message carved into their bodies, and they’re dumped in an alley. Rios must break through a conspiracy of silence that reaches to the highest levels of Los Angeles politics and Hollywood power. And the closer he gets to the truth, the closer he gets to becoming an enraged killer’s next victim.

    Death wore a smart little outfit
    hilarious Binky and Doan comedy mysteries finds our intrepid heroine (and hero in a dress) pulled into art world murders, high society divorces, international intrigue, and other bothersome events that keep getting in the way of a life of leisure. Life in San Francisco is pretty sweet for our heroes – Binky’s little trust fund check pays her rent, but doesn’t cover life’s necessities like Dom Perignon and raspberry tarts. Doan’s many part time jobs all pay something, but without a little help from those on the financial rungs above him, how would he get that new haute couture frock? A little sleuthing on the side is nice work if you can get it, and if true romance with a hot cop and a bad boy artist comes their way, too, what’s a little mortal danger from a serial killer, compared to having to work a real job?

    A series of novellas by different authors

    01 - Hue, Tint and Shade - Jordan Castillo Price
    Asking for help can be a challenge for even the best of us, and so it's doubly intimidating for quiet, introverted Tommy Roth. An online exchange leads to a meeting with a psychic who assures Tommy that his naturally subdued aura is to blame for his timidity. Blue and violet tones are out, and shades of yellow and red are in! Of course it's a bunch of baloney, and to make it worse, the intimidating shop clerk overheard the whole conversation. Just when it seems like Tommy's life can’t get any more dreary, a colorful character drops out of the sky. Nathan's so vivid, he seems to good to be true. Is he?

    02 - Slings and Arrows - Josh Lanyon
    Carey Gardner receives an enormous box of chocolates from a secret admirer for Valentine's Day. Being a pretty straightforward kind of guy, Carey's not really comfortable with expensive presents from persons unknown, and he's less comfortable when his friends Ben and Heath tell him the story about a serial killer who once stalked the Hartsburg College campus. Not that Carey really believes his secret admirer is up to anything very sinister—besides, he's already got enough problems falling for Walter Sterne, a brilliant but socially awkward grad student. Carey's friends are warning him against Walter, and even Walter isn't very encouraging. Sometimes life really is like a box of chocolates.

    03 - Moolah and Moonshine - Jordan Castillo Price
    Rust. Cabbage. A vague sour odor of spoiled milk. No, that's not the smell of the dumpster behind Sweets to the Sweet—it's Emmett Russo's horrible house. Everyone told him a home was a great investment, but the market went bad, he discovered a bunch of hidden problems, and now he owes more on his mortgage than the old Kansas farmhouse is worth. If that's not bad enough, his best friend Rosemary just landed a fabulous new job…in Paris. The Paris. And Emmett doesn't know if he can face his horrible house without her. Emmett longs to jaunt away with Rosemary, but how can he fly with his albatross of a house dragging him down? Enter tall, strapping Sam Kowalski, who's rumored to be "good with his hands." Emmett's not accustomed to airing his stinky secrets to just anybody, but Sam seems determined to help him out…and together they discover there's far more hidden in Emmett's horrible house than a bunch of weird smells

    04 - Other People's Weddings – Josh Lanyon
    Planning wealthy socialite Mallory Dalrymple's wedding is the coup of the year—maybe of Griffin Skerry's entire career. If only Mallory wasn't marrying Griffin's ex. And if only Joe wasn't messing with Griffin's mind by sending all these mixed signals. Of course, it could always be worse—and before long, it is. Much worse.

    05 - Spanish Fly Guy - Jordan Castillo Price
    JP McMahon cruises into the small, oceanside town of Brightside hoping to score a bed for the night and a few dollars to fill the Miata's gas tank. He discovers that cell phones and Internet are non-existent, and that without access to matchmaker sites and Craigslist, the local newspaper's personal ads are booming. He cooks up an unlikely scam, a foul novelty concoction called Spanish Fly. He also finds an unlikely accomplice in Ryan, the quiet local kid at the copy shop with a flair for designing irresistible labels. Spanish Fly proves popular—almost too popular—and JP suspects his luck is about to turn. But that "little voice" inside tells him to stick around Brightside just a tiny bit longer….

    06 - Pretty Ugly – Jordan Castillo Price
    Just because Dominic Mann personally lacks beauty doesn’t mean he can’t appreciate it. His keen eye has made him one of the most celebrated and sought-after photographers in Nashville. The grand re-opening of the Cypress Mansion is an event for Nashville’s truly elite, and Dominic is the official photographer of the evening. Not that he’d need that excuse to introduce himself to up-and-coming singer Johnny Palomino and grab a few shots…but it doesn’t hurt. Dominic hopes to take his flirtation with Johnny to the next level at the Cypress Mansion tea, where they’ve arranged to meet. But what greets Dominic in the mirror the next morning is such a shock, he’s almost late for the party. No one at Cypress Mansion is acting like they notice anything different. Or do they?

    07 - Sort of Stranger than Fiction – Josh Lanyon
    When Michael Milner opens a dojo down the street from Ethan's bookstore, Red Bird Books, he makes ripples not only because he's a newcomer in the small desert town of Peabody, but because half his face has been horribly scarred. How? Ethan isn't sure. Michael's not exactly the chatty type, which only adds to his allure. Michael may not be the most sociable person in Peabody, but he's quick to defuse a tense situation when Ethan finds himself cornered by Karl Hagar, fellow writing group member, and creepy author of even creepier serial killer tales. Ethan's sister Erin is convinced that Karl himself is responsible for the bodies turning up lately in the desert—after all, don't all the advice books say, "Write what you know?" While Erin's idea seems pretty far-fetched, Ethan does have to wonder why Karl's eerie focus has landed squarely on him.

    08 - One Less Stiff at the Funeral – Sean Kennedy
    When he hung his brand new psychology degree on the wall, Jason Harvey had imagined working at one of the many hospitals or clinics in Melbourne. The want ads, however, hadn’t cooperated. Now Jason finds himself facing the newly bereaved across the counselor’s desk of the Newlin Funeral Parlour. Certainly all people deserve sympathy and patience in their time of loss, but Jason’s current client has him at wit’s end. What’s worse, the deceased has included a bizarre request in her final wishes: that her passing be commemorated…with chocolate. Things start looking up for Jason when amicable young Fred takes over the funeral coordination duties from his sour aunt, but despite their best efforts to honor the departed in the manner she’s requested, they find the memorial service sliding inexorably out of control….

    09 - Critics Choice – Josh Lanyon
    If there’s one thing film critic Crispin Colley can say about his ex-boyfriend Rey, it’s that Rey likes to remain friends with all his former lovers. Rey’s a friendly guy. Maybe too friendly, judging by the incident that drove the first and last nail in the coffin of their relationship. But now Rey’s been hired for a DVD commentary on a classic horror flick. In typical Rey-fashion, he’s used his clout as a lauded director to win Cris a spot on the commentary right beside the star of the film, his idol, Angelo Faust. The recording of the commentary goes about as smoothly as a half-decayed film through a stuttering projector…but that’s nothing compared to the strange scene that unfolds once the tape’s done rolling.


    10 - Wishink Well – Jordan Castillo Price
    Dying with dignity. Passing on one’s own terms. Approaching the end in a caring, nurturing atmosphere. There are plenty of reasons people check in to Hospice House…but Eddie Flynn’s just there for the morphine. Eddie’s lung capacity is down to 15%, he’s in continual pain, and he’s constantly burning up with fever from the infection he just can’t shake. Given his physical condition, he’s baffled to find himself fawning over the hot guy stocking the vending machines. Eddie figures it’s futile to even flirt with someone, considering how little time he’s got left. But there’s something about the guy with the name “Chance” embroidered on his coveralls that he just can’t stop thinking about—not only for Chance’s naughty smile and bedroom eyes. It seems Eddie’s somehow ended up with Chance’s pen.

    11 – Happily Neverafter - Jordan castillo Price
    Greece is full of history, so it figures that Chance’s on-again, off-again lover would find him there. Sweets to the Sweet appears in Athens during a string of riots, and the beguiling creature who now goes by the name Hunter has insinuated himself among the staff of a nearby hospital. Milo Alexakis is a member of the Hellenic Police—and with all the protests and the rioting, he’s ruing the crappy grades and crappier finances that kept him out of university and put him in the daily path of hurled insults, spit wads and cobblestones. American Dave Shaw is ruing the fact that he never managed to learn any Greek before he embarked on the world’s worst vacation, alone.

    12 – London Eye - Clare London
    Oliver's been dumped by his date in the backstreets of London, where his Armani suit and a rich family background don't count for much.

Then Des’s cheerful generosity meets Oliver’s lovelorn confusion over a cup of coffee and a bag of sinfully good chocolates...Enter Chance, working at the Cafe Mystique under the looming presence of the London Eye, searching as always for The One, matchmaking with his own brand of sensual, sweet and shocking magic.

    13 – Spirits & Second Chance - Sean Kennedy
    Wes Jackson doesn’t believe in ghosts. His Fremantle ghost walk is for entertainment purposes only—right down to the psychic medium (aka his mother) who’s always shocked to find “presences” on his tours…four times a week. If ghosts were real, the Fremantle Round House would be teeming with them. Australian convicts built the forbidding walls, and after the prison outgrew it, mental patients were locked away within its stark cells. But preternatural activity? None. Any trepidation Wes usually displays while leading his tour through the tunnel beneath the Round House is pure theatrics—until the longtime partner he split with turns up, and ghost of their relationship rears its head. Can Chance help them resurrect the spirit of their lost love?

    14 – Just Desserts - Josh Lanyon
    Broken in body and crippled in spirit, Ridge Baneberry sees death as the only way out. Not his death, of course—the death of his obnoxious cousin, Raleigh, the one who was responsible for the accident. It’s not easy plotting the perfect murder from his wheelchair, but when Raleigh’s body is eventually found, who’s going to suspect a cripple? Ridge might not be able to get around so easily, but if there’s one thing he has, it’s time. Then a painfully cheerful physical therapist named Tug shows up at his front door with an appointment book and an agenda. Tug’s personality is equal measures of patience, optimism, and warm Georgia sunshine. Since this Tug person won’t take no for an answer, Raleigh decides he might as well put him to good use. Almond candy would be the perfect camouflage for a lethal dose of cyanide, and Tug knows just where some gourmet chocolates can be found….

    15 – Loose Change - Sean Kennedy
    If there’s one thing you can always count on, it’s change. But the shift in Chance’s job description is one change he could have done without. It’s an ill-fitting role, and his displaced colleague is just as much in the dark as to its purpose as he is. Chance finds matchmaking particularly irksome from his lonely post behind the counter of Sweets to the Sweet. From Belfast to Auckland, Bruges to Los Angeles, he works his magic, hoping that sooner rather than later his own fate may be fulfilled. Thus far, Chance’s only reward for a job well done is more of the same. Since he’s had enough with going through the motions, he decides it’s time to make a big splash. Will management take notice?

    16 – Media Naranja - Jordan castillo Price
    Love is not for the faint of heart. Mild-mannered Trevor accompanies his Gran Elsie on holiday at a luxury resort in Majorca, hoping for some rest and relaxation under the dazzling Spanish sun. But they didn’t count on arriving in the middle of Flamenco Week. Instead of massages and siestas, they find noisy builders and tacky theme parties. Trevor has a choice to make: put up, or shut up—and finding the nerve to complain to the staff, the mysterious Chance and imperturbable Hunter, is far from easy. But the impromptu assertiveness training comes in handy when he catches the eye of the manager’s son, Alejo. There’s someone for everyone—even Trevor—providing he finds the courage to stand up for what he wants.

    17 – Immortal Coil - Jordan castillo Price
    Chance wasn’t sure he even had a heart—until he felt it breaking. Richard Hill should be grading papers, but a dilapidated roadside carnival distracts him from his clipboard full of essays on the function of the human heart. The weather is cold and the carnies are dour, but the cotton candy is good enough to lure him back for more. It doesn’t hurt that former student Joel Weaver, all grown up, is working there too—and not only is he quirky and cute, he seems to be putting off an “interested” vibe. Chance is accustomed enough to the love gig by now to get The One situated without breaking a sweat—until he finds the fates of the newfound lovers are more tangled than he’d anticipated.

    Victor Bayne (PsyCops)

    01 - Among the Living
    Victor Bayne, the psychic half a PsyCop team, is a gay medium who’s more concerned with flying under the radar than in making waves. He hooks up with handsome Jacob Marks, a non-psychic (or “Stiff”) from an adjacent precinct at his ex-partner’s retirement party and it seems like his dubious luck has taken a turn for the better. But then a serial killer surfaces who can change his appearance to match any witness’ idea of the world’s hottest guy. Solving murders is a snap when you can ask the victims whodunit, but this killer’s not leaving any spirits behind.

    02 - Criss Cross
    Criss Cross finds the ghosts surrounding Victor getting awfully pushy. The medications that Victor usually takes to control his abilities are threatening to destroy his liver, and his new meds aren't any more effective than sugar pills. Vic is also adjusting to a new PsyCop partner, a mild-mannered guy named Roger with all the personality of white bread. At least he's willing to spring for the Starbucks. Jacob's ex-boyfriend, Crash, is an empathic healer who might be able to help Victor pull his powers into balance, but he seems more interested in getting into Victor’s pants than in providing any actual assistance.

    03 - Body & Soul
    Thanksgiving can't end too soon for Victor Bayne, who's finding Jacob's family hard to swallow. Luckily, he's called back to work to track down a high-profile missing person. Meanwhile, Jacob tries to find a home they can move into that's not infested--with either cockroaches, or ghosts. As if the house-hunting isn't stressful enough, Vic's new partner Bob Zigler doesn't seem to think he can do anything right. A deceased junkie with a bone to pick leads Vic and Zig on a wild chase that ends in a basement full of horrors.

    04 - Secrets
    Victor Bayne's job as a PsyCop involves tracking down dead people and getting them to spill their guts about their final moments. It's never been fun, per se. But it's not usually this annoying. Vic has just moved in with his boyfriend Jacob, he can't figure out where anything's packed, and his co-worker is pressuring him to have a housewarming party. Can't a guy catch a break? On a more sinister note, Vic discovers there's absolutely no trace of him online. No trace of anyone else who trained at "Camp Hell," either. Everyone Vic knows has signed a mysterious set of papers to ensure his "privacy." The contracts are so confidential that even Vic has never heard of them. But Jacob might have. What other secrets has Jacob been keeping?

    05 - Camp Hell
    Victor Bayne honed his dubious psychic skills at one of the first psych training facilities in the country, Heliotrope Station, otherwise known as Camp Hell to the psychics who've been guests behind its razorwire fence. Vic discovered that none of the people he remembers from Camp Hell can be found online, nor is there any mention of Heliotrope Station itself. Someone's gone through a lot of trouble to bury the past. But who?

    06 - GhosTV
    For the past dozen years, Victor Bayne has solved numerous murders by interrogating witnesses only he can see—dead witnesses. But when his best friend Lisa goes missing from the sunny California campus of PsyTrain, the last thing he wants to find there is her spirit. Disappearing without a trace in a school full of psychics? That's some trick. But somehow both Lisa and her roommate have vanished into thin air. A group of fanatics called Five Faith has been sniffing around, and Lisa's email is compromised. Time is running out, and with no ghosts to cross-examine, Vic can't afford to turn down any offers of help. An old enemy can provide an innovative way to track Vic's missing friend, and he enters into an uneasy alliance—even though its ultimate cost will ensnare him in a debt he may never manage to settle.

    07 – Spook Squad – added 3.1.2014
    Everyone enjoys peace and tranquility, and Victor Bayne is no exception. He goes to great lengths to maintain a harmonious home with his partner, Jacob. Although the cannery is huge, it's grown difficult to avoid the elephant in the room...the elephant with the letters FPMP scrawled on its hide. Once Jacob surrendered his PsyCop badge, he infiltrated the Federal Psychic Monitoring Program. In his typical restrained fashion, he hasn't been sharing much about what he actually does behind its vigilantly guarded doors. And true to form, Vic hasn't asked. In fact, he would prefer not to think about the FPMP at all, since he's owed Director Dreyfuss an exorcism since their private flight to PsyTrain. While Vic has successfully avoided FPMP entanglement for several months, now his debt has finally come due.

    Nick Hoffman

    01 - Let's Get Criminal
    English professor Nick Hoffman is mightily suspicious when obnoxious Perry Cross, with whom he has to share his office, is hired in a nontenured position with a tenure-track salary (i.e., more than his). When (before the semester is over) Cross turns up dead and a leading suspect in what soon seems to be murder is Nick's life partner, Nick becomes obsessed with discovering the truth about Cross and his murderer.

    02 – The Edith Wharton Murders – added 3.1.2014
    Whoever said that the pen was mightier than the sword might have had The Edith Wharton Murders in mind. In this campus mystery by the talented Lev Raphael, a conference on Edith Wharton becomes a killing ground when various literary factions carry their war of words a little too far--and someone ends up dead. At the heart of both the hostilities and the mystery is Nick Hoffman, a Wharton bibliographer saddled with the thankless task of moderating the conference. Once the murder has occurred, Nick must switch his focus from panel discussions to investigation, a course of action that provides plenty of opportunities for author Raphael to skewer the academic world he left behind.

    03 – The Death of a constant Lover – added 3.1.2014
    Academic politics turn steamy at the State University of Michigan when Delaney Kildare--a buffed, studly graduate student--starts making waves among the faculty. What's his story? What does he want? What will he do to get it? Amateur sleuth Nick Hoffman, an English professor, finds his career and his happy menage with writer Stefan Borowski suddenly threatened by the turmoil spreading around Kildare. Where does it all lead? Scandal and murder, of course.

    Rice, Christopher

    A Density of Souls
    Take the sensuous, fecund New Orleans setting, add a generous helping of tangled Southern family history, and season liberally with a sensitive teenage boy rejected by his friends and frightened of his own homoerotic impulses and you wouldn't be surprised to discover that the novel containing all of the above was written by someone named Rice. But a few paragraphs into the first page, it's clear that Anne Rice's son's first novel isn't about vampires or witches and does not otherwise read like one of her exceedingly popular books. The only family resemblance is in the setting, the sexual orientation of the lovingly described male characters, and the scent of overripe magnolias.

    Light before Day
    A 20-something magazine reporter becomes embroiled in a Hollywood murder mystery in Rice's (The Snow Garden) third, richly developed thriller. It's a blessing in disguise when Adam Murphy is fired from racy fluff rag Glitz, since he'd been chasing a real story involving a closeted Marine helicopter pilot, Daniel Brady, whose association with a pedophilic pimp produced a sordid videotape that led to Daniel's suicide plane crash. But Adam's still reeling from the demise of a heated, three-week affair with hunky but secretive Corey, who'd outgrown Adam's blackout-inducing drunkenness. Adam soon becomes the assistant to sharp, sarcastic straight mystery novelist James Wilton, who instructs Adam to continue researching Daniel Brady. One of Rice's most spirited characters, James consistently counteracts Adam's hyperactive enthusiasm with candor and a sensible "working theory," and when Corey disappears, Adam discovers that three other gay men have inexplicably vanished over the past few years, supposed victims of the West Hollywood Slasher. Armed with a dossier from a trustworthy Hollywood reporter, Adam sets out to solve the crime that swells into blackmail, murder, a child porn ring and a subplot involving a "rogue assassin" who blows up methamphetamine labs.

    Blind Fall – added 3.1.2014
    John Houck became a Marine to become a hero. But his life changed when he failed to notice an explosive device that ended up maiming his captain, a respected military man who nearly sacrificed himself to save John’s life. Home from Iraq, John pays a visit to his former captain, only to discover the captain has been gruesomely murdered. John pursues a strange man he sees running from the scene, but he discovers that Alex Martin is not the murderer. Alex is, in fact, the former captain’s secret male lover and the killer’s intended next victim. A gripping story of honor and integrity, of turning failure into victory, Blind Fall is the story of two men, one a Marine, one gay, who must unite to avenge the death of the man they both loved—one as a brother-in-arms, one as a lover—and to survive.

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?

    Sherlock Holmes (various authors)

    A Study in Lavender
    What other characters from English literature have captivated hearts and minds as thoroughly as Sherlock Holmes and his loyal companion John Watson? Many fans imagine the relationship between these men is deep and more than platonic. In A Study in Lavender, the Holmes universe is queered and ten authors have devised stories in which Holmes and Watson are lovers, or investigate mysteries of inverts hidden from the laws and cultures of the Victorian era; even the indomitable Lestrade has his turn at love; and famous actors who helped put Holmes on the silver screen face trysts they never dared to film.

    Kevin Connor

    01 – Firt You Fall
    Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Best Mystery, 2009. When his friend's death is ruled a suicide, Kevin Connor--a hustler by trade, sleuth by default--sets out to prove a case of murder. It doesn't help matters that the victim's grown children, who disapproved of their father's sexual orientation, are only concerned about their inheritance. But they are not Kevin's only problem. His high-strung mother has moved in with him--and she knows nothing about his questionable . . . job. Throw in his super-hot ex - now a New York City detective - and Kevin has more than his hands full.

    02 – Second You Sin
    Someone is killing New York City's hottest male prostitutes, and it's up to full-time call boy, part-time sleuth Kevin Connor to find out who. With his spectacular boy-next-door looks, quick wit, and ability to role-play even the most outrageous scenarios, Kevin is facing his most challenging position yet--to stop a ruthless killer. As Kevin begins his investigation, there s no shortage of possible suspects or motives. Could the killer be a sadistic head case with a deadly fetish? A high-profile celebrity worried that his biggest secret might get out? Or perhaps it's a right-wing politician, guilty of protesting too much from his pious and unforgiving soapbox. As Kevin gets closer to the truth, he'll find himself trapped in a scandalous web of secrets where the line between victim and predator blurs, and no sin goes unpunished. . .

    03 – Third You Die - added 10.1.2013
    Former callboy Kevin Connor settles down with his hunky cop boyfriend and starts a new career producing his mother's TV talk show, but finds himself drawn back to his old life when Brent Havens, a gay porn star, is found dead in the Hudson River after appearing on his mother's show.

    A serial killer is targeting gay men, preying on them in popular bars and parks. Assigned to the case, rookie cop Pat St. James feels all too close to the victims. He's gay and firmly in the closet at work. The fact that he's sent undercover as a gay man is a stroke of irony. Pat and his fellow cop, Hank, are hanging out in bars, trying to get a lead on the killer. At the same time, Pat's looking for Mr. Right - juggling three men, hoping he'll find the perfect match for himself. He picked up Bill at a bar, Dean's a longtime friend . and in yet another ironic twist, his partner, Hank, is also gay and on the list of possible beaus.

    Promoted to his own patrol beat after solving a series of anti-gay murders, Prince George County police officer Patrick St. James is happily deepening his relationship with his new lover, Dean, when more young, gay men start turning up dead. He and fellow officer Hank Capstone, now in a relationship of his own with a cute clerk from the local Seven-Eleven, face being outed by a blackmailer as they begin their investigation into the murders. As the killings continue and the pressure to find the perpetrator intensifies, Pat and Hank go undercover again, and Dean has to face the sometimes harsh realities of loving a cop.

    03 – Four Grooms and a Queen
    Life is good these days for rookie cops and best friends Patrick St. James and Hank Capstone. They've closed the books on two high-profile serial murder cases and survived unscathed. Now they learn that they've earned the admiration of their peers and superiors and that they've both been promoted to detective third-class. Things are good on the homefront too--both men have loving partners who worry about them but support them wholeheartedly. Could things get any better? How about a double wedding on Christmas Eve?

Though Hank and Shawn, along with Pat and Dean, enjoy a weekend at Gay Pride in New York City, they know their investigation into the brutal murders of rent boys will be waiting when they return home. Along with trying to investigate the murders, they must also deal with Pat's old training officer who is now working in the detective bureau. Blinded by ambition and alcoholism, Flanders wreaks havoc on an otherwise solid case against the killer. When their sergeant's gay nephew, Clay, is lured into a meeting, then drugged and raped, the sergeant asks for Hank and Pat's help.

A former Iraqi general with a grudge against Hank arrives in the area seeking revenge. Does his appearance connect to a terrorist threat made against the local mall?

    David J. Windsor/Shane Thompson

    01 – Condor One
    The Democratic Party's 2012 nominee for President, David J. Windsor, and America are equally shocked when he is outted by his opponent just six weeks before the Fall election. Following his heart, David chooses honesty over media spin and overcomes the obstacle to win the election. Despite that success, dark forces around the world begin to plot against him, and President Windsor's security is a must. Inside and outside the White House, Secret Service Agent Shane Thompson becomes the President's shadow, always present and silent, ever vigilant. As the two men grow closer, Shane does far more than just his duty - he becomes as vital to David's happiness as he is to the President's health. Together they realize they must find a way to balance the President and the Agent against David and Shane before stress and responsibility tear them apart.

    02 – Talons of the Condor
    David J. Windsor, the first openly gay president of the United States, has his hands full. After surviving an assassination attempt, he's now dealing with the fallout: finding all of the culprits is at the top of his list. Will his enemies give up trying to bring down the administration, or will they try again? In the meantime, he has to deal with fractious allies, hidden foes, the vice president's kidnapped son, and secrets that tear at his heart-including his relationship with his lover, Shane Thompson, who is also his Secret Service agent. While they want to live a more open life, it's impossible while David is in office; the demands of the job and the constant spotlight would tear even the most devoted couple apart. Throw in David's attempts to help gay teens and they're living in a pressure cooker that threatens to boil over. Will David be able to get a handle on the intrigue and danger of his job and find a way to keep his lover as well? Or will Shane become a casualty of Condor One's political decisions?

    03 – Condor and Falcon
    President David Windsor's former Secret Service agent, Shane Thompson, is now a permanent partner in his life, and David is determined to see Shane receive the respect he deserves as the First Gentleman. Assigned the codename "Falcon," Shane will be taking on the traditional duties of the First Lady as David, codenamed "Condor One," continues his administration. But the tests of the Presidency are still looming as David faces both domestic and foreign political challenges. Just doing his job could mean extreme danger for himself and Shane, the man he loves most in the world—the man David wants to marry, despite all the press and attention it will bring them and the possible repercussions on a run for re-election.

    04 – Out of Gilded Cage
    After his eventful term in office, former President of the United States David Windsor is looking forward to retirement with his husband and love of his life, former First Gentleman Shane Thompson. As a part of their new start, they've bought a home in beautiful Cape May and started proceedings to adopt a homeless gay teenager. With the faithful Marys-his secretary and his Scottish terrier-at his side, David's set to enjoy a life out of the limelight. But fate has other plans for the no-nonsense politician. An agreement forged between China and the Taliban sends new President Victoria Wilson to David for advice. David will do anything to help his former Vice President keep Al-Qaeda from destroying the world, and he soon finds himself back in the heart of the storm, Shane at his side. Toe to toe with the leaders of the opposition, both foreign and at home, David must convince them to turn aside from their deadly plan.

    05 - Condor and Crown
    When former President of the United States David Windsor is appointed the American ambassador to the Court of St. James, it necessitates a move to England. Uprooting his family and moving his staff, David and his husband, ex-Secret Service Agent Shane Thompson-Windsor, settle into Winfield House with their adopted son, Jack, and two feisty Scottie puppies. Life is finally settling into a routine when Jack is abducted by Libyan nationals. No longer able to call directly upon US military forces, David turns to his successor as President, Victoria Wilson, to enlist her aid and gain her approval of a daring rescue attempt, and asks his cousin King William for help luring the kidnapper to British soil for retribution. It’s a mission that will ultimately involve the British Marines and even personal phone calls to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi as David will stop at nothing to see his son safely home.

    Don Strachey

    01 - Death Trick
    It's 1979, the height of the post-Stonewall era of gay sexual liberation, and a young man has been brutally murdered. The gay son of a wealthy family has disappeared. Now it's up to private dick Don Strachey to get to the bottom of this mess—even if he has to cruise every gay bar in the city to do it! — Don Strachey isn't exactly the most so... more »ught-after private eye in Albany, New York. In fact, this gay P.I. has gotten to the point of having to write checks to pay his tab at the cheapest lunch counter in town. And he isn't sure that the latest one, for the grand total of two dollars and ninety-three cents, is going to clear. Then the phone rings. Billy Blount, the gay heir to one of Saratoga Springs' upper-crust families, has disappeared, and his parents want him back. On top of that, Billy, a young and outspoken gay activist, is wanted for the grizzly murder of the man he slept with on his last night in Albany—a man he'd never met before that night!

    02 - On the other hand death
    When the giant Millpond Company finds its plans for a mega-shopping mall stymied by the refusal of an elderly lesbian couple to sell their home, the ladies are subjected to ugly vandalism and frightening death threats. The powerful director of Millpond in turn hires Don Strachey, Albany's only gay detective, to protect the ladies, find the culpr... more »its, and clear the corporate name. Strachey accepts with misgivings that deepen rapidly as kidnapping, extortion, and murder darken the lives of Albany's gay community. Fast-paced, deftly plotted, and superbly written, this is one of the best Strachey novels yet.

    03 - Ice Blues
    Shocked to discover the body of the grandson of the godfather of Albany's political machine in his car, P.I. Donald Strachey knows he is in for trouble. But when he learns that the murder victim left a $2.5 million legacy with instructions that it be used to destroy that machine, along with a personal letter to Strachey asking for his help, his ... more »suspicions are confirmed. Faced with power-brokers at all levels, Albany's only gay P.I. tries to fulfill the dead man's mission-with his own survival at stake

    04 - Third Man Out
    After an attempt is made on his life, Queer Nation activist John Rutka asks tough-as-nails gay private detective Don Strachey to provide him with protection. Why does someone want to kill him? The activist's efforts at outing closeted gay homophobes have earned him a multitude of enraged enemies who would just as soon see him dead. After Strache... more »y refuses to help, the man's body is found savagely murdered in apparent retribution for his deeds. Now, because of this, the reluctant Strachey feels obligated to investigate. Third Man Out brings back one of the most popular gay heroes in mystery fiction, Don Strachey, a private investigator as hard-boiled as they come, along with his lover, Tim Callahan, in a topical and very entertaining mystery dealing with the ethical issues of outing.

    05 - Shock to the system
    Donald Strachey is asked to investigate the suspicious death of Paul Haig by three different people -- Haig's homophobic mother, his ex-lover, and the psychiatrist hired to "cure" him of his homosexuality.

    06 - Chain of fools
    Timmy Callahan's ex-lover Skeeter triggers gay private eye Don Strachey's involvement with the Osbornes, a twisted family on the verge of selling their liberal newspaper. But someone within the family has ideas on settling just who should buy it, and those ideas include murder. Chain of Fools is the sixth entry in Author Richard Stevenso... more »n's critically acclaimed series of popular mysteries starring tough, wise-cracking private detective Don Strachey and spouse Timmy. This time out, Strachey's investigation discovers more danger and family skeletons than any family has a right to own. The crisp dialogue and realistic characters (including the introduction of a memorably trash-talking lesbian surgeon) keep the reader entertained until the very end. The novel also includes a brand-new preface from the author written specifically for this edition.

    07 - Strachey’s Folley
    In Washington, D.C., to view the AIDS Memorial Quilt, gay P.I. Donald Strachey, his lover, Timmy, and their friend Maynard discover a panel for an ex-lover of Maynard.

But the timing of the attack is too perfect f... more »or Strachey to believe it is conincidental, and he must find out what secrets lie behind the ex-lovers's disappearance before the unseen attackers turn their attention toward Timmy and Strachey himself.

    08 - Tongue Tied
    A long-defunct gay activist group seems to be threatening radio shock jock Jay Plankton. As The J-Bird, the man's hate-filled rants offend Strachey deeply. Among the subjects Stevenson tackles in this series entry is homophobia in modern police services like the NYPD, where coming out carries more than its usual share of costs.

    09 - Death Vows
    Gay marriage in Massachusetts is a fine institution------except when it leads to murder, as it does in this taut, suspenseful Don Strachey private eye novel, the ninth in the classic series. Strachey and his loving foil, Timothy Callahan, are back in perfect form in this witty, ripped-from-the-headlines thriller.

    12 - Red White Black and Blue
    In an election year, Don finds himself in the unlikely role of political operative. Rumors about the Tea Party's opportunistic gubernatorial candidate, Kenyon Louderbush, paint him as an unfaithful, callous exploiter of young men...young men that he puts into the hospital...or perhaps the morgue. Don smells truth in those rumors. But, he's confounded by a shadowy conspiracy, witnesses' fear and a grieving family appallingly willing to give up on justice for a brutalized son and brother. In RED WHITE AND BLACK AND BLUE, series creator Stevenson takes witty aim at the polarization, dissembling and double-dealing of American politics.

    Ty Grady/Zane Garrett

    01 - Cut & Run
    series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case. Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he's paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it's hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop-bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer. Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again – this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer's knife.

    02 - Sticks & Stone
    Six months after nearly losing their lives to a serial killer in New York City, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are suffering through something almost as frightening: the monotony of desk duty. When they're ordered to take a vacation for the good of everyone's sanity, Ty bites the bullet and takes Zane home with him to West Virginia, hoping the peace and quiet of the mountains will give them the chance to explore the explosive attraction they've so far been unable to reconcile with their professional partnership. Ty and Zane, along with Ty's father and brother, head up into the Appalachian mountains for a nice, relaxing hike deep into the woods... where no one will hear them scream. They find themselves facing danger from all directions: unpredictable weather, the unrelenting mountains, wild animals, fellow hikers with nothing to lose, and the most terrifying challenge of all. Each other.

    03 – Fish & Chips
    Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job, settled into a personal and professional relationship built on fierce protectiveness and blistering passion. Now they're assigned to impersonate two members of an international smuggling ring-an out-and-proud married couple-on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As their boss says, surely they'd rather kiss each other than be shot at, and he has no idea how right he is. Portraying the wealthy criminals requires a particular change in attitude from Ty and Zane while dealing with the frustrating waiting game of their assignment. As it begins to affect how they treat each other in private, Ty and Zane realize there's more to being partners than watching each other's backs, and when the case takes an unexpected turn and threatens Ty's life, Ty and Zane will have to navigate seas of white lies and stormy secrets, including some of their own.

    04 – Divide and Conquer
    Baltimore, Maryland, is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage, and all law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are catching blame. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners. Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally—throwing the city, the Bureau, and Ty and Zane’s volatile partnership both in and out of the office into chaos. They’re hip-deep in trouble, trying to track down bombers and bank robbers in the dark with very few clues, and the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel together requires Ty and Zane to close their eyes and trust each other to the fiery end.


    05 - Armed & Dangerous
    Left alone in Baltimore after his unpredictable lover bails, Special Agent Zane Garrett takes his frustration out on everything in his path until he is ordered to Chicago to back up an undercover operative. When he gets there, though, he finds himself face to face with his wayward partner, Special Agent Ty Grady. They have to deal with the uncertainty lingering between them while they work to retrieve their intended mark, a retired hit man and CIA wet-works operative named Julian Cross. Ty, once a Marine and now an FBI hotshot, has a penchant for being unpredictable, a trait Zane can vouch for. Zane is a man who once lived for his job but has come to realize his heartbreaking past doesn’t have to overshadow his future. They're partners, friends, lovers, and the go-to team for unusual cases. With Cross and his innocuous boyfriend, Cameron Jacobs, in tow, Ty and Zane must navigate the obstacles of a cross-country trek, including TSA pat-downs, blizzards, their uncooperative prisoners, CIA kill teams, a desperate lack of sleep and caffeine, and each other. Ty and Zane are determined to get Julian Cross to DC in one piece, but it’s starting to look like it might be the last thing they do.

    06 - Stars & Stripes
    Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have managed the impossible: a few months of peace and quiet. After nearly a year of personal and professional turmoil, they're living together conflict-free, work is going smoothly, and they're both happy, healthy, and home every night before dark. But anyone who knows them knows that can’t possibly last. When an emergency call from home upsets the balance of their carefully arranged world, Ty and Zane must juggle family drama with a perplexing crime to save a helpless victim before time runs out. From the mountains of West Virginia to a remote Texas horse ranch harboring more than just livestock and childhood memories, Ty and Zane must face their fears—and their families—to overcome an unlikely enemy and bring peace back into their newly shared world.

    Warriors Cross
    Cameron Jacobs is an open book. He considers himself a common waiter with normal friends, boring hobbies, harmless dogs, and nothing even resembling a secret... except a crush on a tall, dark, devastatingly handsome man who dines alone at his restaurant on Tuesday nights. All it takes is one passionate night with Julian Cross to turn Cameron's world on its head. Julian's love and devotion are all Cameron could have hoped for and more. But when his ordinary life meets and clashes with Julian's extraordinary lifestyle, Cameron discovers that trust and fear can go hand in hand, and love is just a step away from danger.

    Zimmerman, R.D.

    Todd Mills

    01 - Closet
    It began with a brutal attack in a posh Minneapolis neighborhood. And from the first killing to the next, Todd Mills was at the center of the story. The son of Polish immigrants, Todd had changed his name and risen to the top of his field as a TV news reporter, winning two Emmy Awards along the way. Then his world came crashing down. Suddenly, the double life he'd hidden for so long was brutally uncovered: he was the secret lover of the first man to die. When Michael was murdered, Todd lost everything, including a life lived as a lie. Now he's out of the closet and under suspicion, desperately investigating the killings himself, moving through a world of gay bars, steamy nightclubs, and double identities?where the one secret that matters most belongs to a killer who will strike again . . . and again.

    02 – Tribe
    The crisp Minneapolis winter is the stage for the unraveling of old secrets in this latest Todd Mills mystery. Trying to move on with his life after the murder of his lover, Michael, Mills, a respected journalist, is taken by surprise when college sexual encounters reemerge to disrupt both his life and that of his best friend, lesbian attorney Janice Gray. Janice, it turns out, had a son either by Todd or by another classmate, who also had an affair with Todd. Now that son, Zeb, appears, desperate to protect his own baby daughter from the religious cult of his adoptive father. The plot unfolds swiftly and efficiently, and the characters have widely diverse but always believable motives. But what makes this mystery stand out goes deeper than narrative and characterization. The importance of loving friendships and the implications of homophobia and self-loathing (really internalized homophobia) lie at the heart of this multifaceted story.

    03 – Hostage
    When two men and one woman suffering from AIDS kidnap an antigay U.S. congressman in Minneapolis and threaten to inject him with the virus, they unwittingly thrust an enterprising gay television reporter into the limelight. On the scene during the kidnapping, Todd Mills (recently seen in Tribe, Dell, 1996) shows his mettle in the ensuing media frenzy. He is further tested when his detective lover, Steve Rawlins, goes missing and then finds himself caught up with the kidnappers. Nitty-gritty details and a credible and fast-moving story; recommended.

    04 – Outburst
    In the middle of one of Minnesota's worst rainstorms, TV newsman Todd Mills--"the most visible gay person in Minneapolis"--is standing on the Stone Arch Bridge, waiting to meet a supposed blackmail victim with a hot story. Instead, he finds an about-to-be-murdered young gay cop named Mark Forrest, lured there by the same tipster/killer. So begins the investigation in this fourth Mills book from Zimmerman, one of the best of the current crop of writers of gay-themed mysteries. This time, involved in the police investigation is Todd's lover, Steve Rawlins, recently diagnosed as HIV positive--a fact that adds darkness to an already grim story. Rawlins becomes a target for the killer who has a grudge against gays and cops, the roots of which we begin to learn about gradually and with several sideways moves. Zimmerman creates a landscape perhaps a bit too dominated by variations on gay sexuality to be totally believable. But after decades of mysteries featuring nothing but straight sex, a little reverse imbalance isn't that hard to bear.

    05 – Innuendo
    The fourth Todd Mills mystery offers the intriguing premise of dual investigations: one into the murder of a 17-year-old gay runaway, and the other into the sexual past and proclivities of Tim Chase, a movie star who has successfully sued a tabloid that claimed he was gay. Without pressuring his police officer boyfriend, Steve Rawlins, for more information than he can safely give, Minneapolis television reporter Todd Mills must try to uncover details about the boy's murder. At the same time, he is granted an exclusive interview with the glamorous Tim Chase, who immediately makes a pass at Todd in the guise of "research" for his next film. Is Todd's boyfriend hiding something important from him, something about Steve's own connection to the dead boy? And what about Tim Chase? Is he gay? And if so, how far would he go to protect his secret?

    Zubro, Mark Richard

    Tom Mason/Scott Carpenter

    01 - A Simple Suburban Murder
    A high school English teacher in suburban Chicago sets out to find the murderer of a very unpopular colleague in this competently written debut, which is surprisingly entertaining in spite of its focus: child homosexual prostitution and snuff movies, among other unsavory topics. Unlocking his classroom one morning, Tom Mason finds the body of Jim Evans of the math department, his head caved in. When Evans's son Phil, a former student of Mason's, disappears, he becomes the prime suspect. Determined to investigate despite police disapproval, Mason is aided by his lover, professional baseball player Scott Carpenter, who is still leery about coming out of the closet. The two uncover evidence that the dead man ran a computerized bookie system, blackmailed his colleagues and was involved in a homosexual child prostitution ring in Chicago. Although their lives are in danger, Mason and Carpenter manage to break up the ring and an associated snuff movie operation, and to find the killer. Zubro handles the love story tastefully and gives a vivid description of life in the underworld homosexual ghetto.

    08 – One Dead Drag Queen
    Gay Chicago superstar pitcher Scott Carpenter, who recently revealed to fans that he loved schoolteacher Tom Mason, finishes a bout of serious housecleaning and turns on the television just in time to catch a news bulletin announcing the bombing of the Human Services Clinic, where Tom volunteers. Plucked from the rubble, Tom is hospitalized in a coma while his family stands vigil. His visitors include Myrtle Mae, an aging drag queen; Cubs catcher Morty Hamilton; and a hate letter that appears at Tom's bedside, scaring Scott into beefing up his personal security with a high-powered, albeit homophobic, investigative firm. Scott's other assignment is dodging newshound Brandon Kearn, who wants a tragedy exclusive from him to go along with the emerging conspiracy theories. A late-term abortion doctor may have been the bombing target; a nurse practitioner may have set the bomb; or the terrorists in the building across the street may have had a hand in it. The rendering of the catastrophe's aftermath is poignant but packaged with as many improbable villains as All-Star relievers, and a plot as porous as the Cubs infield.

    09 – Here comes the Corpse
    What's the world coming to? It's getting so a couple of decent guys can't even tie the knot in peace any more, what with murder victims popping up in bathroom stalls and runaway nephews skulking around the crime scene. Schoolteacher Tom Mason and major-league pitcher Scott Carpenter finally decide to marry, in style in a Chicago hotel's 20-story atrium ballroom, all done up with orchids, rainbow-flag bunting, Godiva chocolate centerpieces, and an ice sculpture nearly as long as most housefronts. The occasion is marred by the sudden, uninvited appearance of Ethan, Tom's high-school flame, who has treated him badly in the past but now urgently needs to talk with him. But Ethan winds up dead in the john before Tom has the slightest idea what he might have wanted. Old flames die hard, though, and Tom cannot decline Ethan's parents' plea that he look into the homicide. Zubro's fans will cheer just about everything in the new Tom and Scott mystery--even Scott's sulky adolescent nephew.

    11- Everyone’s dead but us
    Lovebirds Tom Mason, a retired Chicago high school teacher, and Scott Carpenter, a former major league baseball player, find their New Year's vacation on the Aegean island of Korkasi violently interrupted in Zubro's breathless 12th Tom and Scott mystery (after 2004's File Under Dead). First the owner of the world's "most expensive and exclusive gay resort" turns up dead in the couple's lodgings, then an explosion at the resort's headquarters kills many staff members. A storm cuts off the island from assistance as the body count rises. Suspects include those who reek of supercilious "A-gay disdain" and others of sordid criminal habits and aliases.

    12 – Schooled in Murder
    Tom Mason, Chicago area high school teacher, has been teaching at Grover Cleveland High School for a while - long enough to loathe the faculty meetings and long enough to know that as bad as they are, they aren't fatal. Usually. Having had all he can take of the endless bickering, picking and factional disputes, he sneaks out of the meeting for a short break only to find the meeting over when he returns, the usual suspects having departed to the four winds. Having decided that this was a sign of his good fortune, he decides to see if the stockroom actually has the supplies he needs. What he finds there however is a trysting couple in the dark (one married, the other not) and, once the light is turned on, a dead body in the corner. The body is that of one of his colleagues who stormed out of the faculty meeting earlier, a blackboard eraser stuffed into her lifeless mouth. Having disappeared from the meeting at roughly the same time, Tom finds himself in the unwelcome position of prime suspect and with the help of his husband, former baseball player Scott Carpenter, he'll have to figure out who really killed the other teacher before the crime is pinned on him.

    13 – Another Dead Republican – added 3.1.2014
    Another Dead Republican is a mystery of familial destruction set in a world of violent intrigue and deadly ambition. A ringing phone in the middle of the night set Tom Mason and his lover, baseball player, Scott Carpenter on the trail of a vicious killer in a suburban enclave. Tom's brother-in-law has been murdered. Tom rushes to be with his beloved sister. The dead man was the son of the vicious Republican county that runs a county. The ruling cabal will stop at nothing to destroy people and lives that get in their way of accumulating more useless wealth

    Paul Turner

    01 – Sorry Now –a dded 3.1.2014
    While in Chicago, right-wing televangelist Bruce Mucklewrath is attacked and his daughter killed. Sensing a potential time bomb, and with Mucklewrath creating great pressure, the police brass assign the case to Detective Paul Turner whom they trust with sensitive matters. During their investigation, Turner and his partner discover that other right-wing bigots have been suffering odd attacks, and they begin to suspect a conspiracy of vengeance, perhaps even from the gay community. This is an uncomfortable thought for Turner, who is himself gay, but when Turner is attacked and his two sons threatened, he has to enlist the help of people in his close-knit neighborhood, as well as his contacts in the gay world, to find the solution in time.

    06 – Sex and Murder.com
    Within 24 hours Chicago software tycoons and business partners Craig Lenzati and Brooks Werberg are murdered, each stabbed repeatedly. Both men were rich nerds; one was gay. Detectives Paul Turner (the gay father of two boys) and Buck Fenwick (a macho type who secretly writes poetry) take on the two cases. As they painstakingly strip away layers of computer code, the detectives discover that the murder victims were playing a childish sex game. Lenzati and Werberg each offered sex partners money and kept score, their way of gaining nerd revenge for years of social and sexual ineptness. As Turner and Fenwick crack wise and interview copious hired lovers, mysterious gifts of chocolate begin to arrive on Turner's desk, as do threatening messages on his computer screen. A cross-country killing spree targets policemen with good arrest records. The cop murders and the two dead software magnates might just be connected. Or they might not.

    08 - Nerd Who Kill
    Paul Turner is a widowed father of two teenaged boys, one of whom has spina bifida, rapidly approaching middle age, and used to dealing gracefully with all the challenges these things entail. Turner, however, is slightly different from others in his situation - he's openly gay and a homicide detective for the Chicago Police Department. Despite everything, his personal and family life is relatively placid. Until right now. This time, his life couldn't possibly get more complex and problematic: there's a Science Fiction and Media convention in Chicago this weekend - one of the world's largest such gathering - and his sons are both attending. In full costume. And Paul Turner, like any good father, is going with them. If the prospect of that weren't bad enough, one of the convention's guests - one of the field's most successful fantasy writers - is found murdered, mostly likely by the broadsword found rammed through the corpse's chest. In most circumstances, a broadsword would be a unique murder weapon, but this time there are hundreds of attendees carrying similar ones as part of their costumes. Including his own son. That one gruesome murder is just the beginning - the dead bodies amidst the revelers are starting to pile up - and Turner must sort through a confusing array of suspects in short order if he's to find the killer in time.

    10 – Black and Blue and Pretty Dead too
    Paul Turner returns. In his first appearance since 2007, this gay Chicago detective and father of two sons gets caught in a tangle of intrigue and corruption. A brutal Chicago cop is found murdered at a gay leather festival. Turner, plus his police department partner, Buck Fenwick are assigned the case. Through a rising tide of danger, they need to find the truth among police corruption and cover ups. Some top cops and A-list leather queens are among those whose lies and fears drive the web of desperation and deceit that Turner and his partner must unravel.
