A rent boy's body is dumped in the grounds of a homophobic Boston politician's home. Under pressure from the politico, the police seem determined to pin the murder on someone, anyone, from the local gay community. Bartender Valentine and his BFF Clarisse Lovelace decide to find the real killer.

Fun piece of froth from 1980, so set in a very different world in so many ways. ( )

Murder mystery in which a gay hustler is killed in Boston. The plot involves a property broker and a gay bartender who are best friends who are investigating the murder. The bartender and some others in the gay business community are getting leaned on by a local cop. Is so so as far a story goes. It truly is a mystery til near the end of the book as to whom committed the murder with various clues pointing us in different directions. Which ultimately turn out to be red herrings. Some of the characters lean a bit too much on stereotypes, the aging queen who sings in a piano bar, the clones, promiscuous sex that seems to have been more of the time then now. But that being said that it relies on stereotypes it does have a cast of characters, the aging lounge singer, a dominatrix that's always stoned, the promiscuous bartender, the "overworked" property broker. I read this series a number of years ago and am re-reading now. We'll have to see how the rest of the series holds up. ( )

Ouch. Sometimes the beginning of a series isn't worth stretching for. I had read the fourth (and last) in this series and liked it well enough. Two amateur sleuths in Boston in the 1980s were entertaining, so I thought I'd see how the series started. My advice - don't. Overwritten, oversexed, over-stereotyped. As someone, I think Suzanne, says, a tree died for this. ( )
