When author Helmut Brandt is killed in an apparent mugging, P.I. Marco Fontana is hired by Brandt's partner, who suspects this was premeditated murder. Brandt's work on the death of Pope John Paul I angered people in and out of the Church and made him more than a few enemies. His death happens soon after Brandt claims to have incontrovertible new evidence implicating people never before suspected. Fontana doesn't believe in coincidences and takes the case. A former Catholic himself, he knows that uncovering Brandt's killer means more than exposing a thirty-year old plot to kill the Pope: it could also ruin the people named in the documents Brandt is supposed to have. Of course, if Brandt's enemies have killed once over this information, they won't hesitate to murder a P.I. who gets too close to the truth. Entering the arcane world of the Catholic Church, Fontana encounters forces determined to keep him from getting to the truth. Though he manages to gain access to the upper levels of the Archdiocesan hierarchy, Fontana realizes that the web of power and deceit is every bit as intricate, tangled, and deadly as he imagined. As the owner of StripGuyz, a troupe of male strippers, Fontana is no stranger to the seamier parts of the Philadelphia gayborhood. But in this case, he finds that there is an even murkier side to life in the city of Brotherly Love.… (mere)

PI Marco Fontana is asked to investigate the death of a writer who was gunned down in Philadelphia, but was it a mugging that went wrong as the police claim or was a hit put out on him by a spurned lover or by people who did not want the research in his latest Work In Progress to surface?

Enjoyable, twisty, puzzle. Marco is lots of fun and both his PI business and his side business bring him into contact with a intriguing mix of characters both professionally and personally. ( )

Murder on Camac was not an easy book to start reading since it’s almost 400 pages long, and I was there thinking, well, it’s a mystery, not exactly the genre of book I like, and it’s soo long… will I have the patience to finish it? So I waited and waited, till the moment I was at home, quite and with a lot of time, and gathering all the patience I have, starting reading and… it was fast and easy and light… it was light, something that I have almost never found in a mystery. And there was also a romance, or maybe two, or three, or… I lost the count and all the romances have the same man, Marco Fontana.

P.I. Marco is a mix of Philip Marlowe and Don Juan, with the added spicy that he is gay. You can’t turn a page that Marco is eyeing once man more, and adding this to the fact that he is the owner of a male stripper group called StripGuyz, there are a lot of young, hot and willing boys around Marco. Plus he is in two possible relationships: Anton, stripper and manager of StripGuyz who is waiting for Marco to that THE decision, to commit for a long term relationship, and till the moment Marco will not say the magic two little words, “I do”, he is not putting out; and then there is Luke, willing to put out and willing to wait for Marco, and in the meantime helping out him with his P.I. job, and there is also the little detail that Marco’s mom likes Luke. But even if Marco should have his hands plenty occupied, he is not unaffected by all the pretty boys he sees around, I think that practically every men he met was subjected to a check over and weighted as possible fling or maybe something more. And if they didn’t pass the test as applicants for possible lovers, they were offered a job as strippers, if they are in the age range; but Marco didn’t test only the young one, in this novel there are also a lot of older guys, even an 80 years old guy, and all of them received a special look from Marco.

But the pretty boys are not the only thing to make this novel a special one, there is another important and wonderful main character, Philadelphia. All the novel is set in the gayborhood of Philadelphia and around there. Since I visited the city this last September, I recognized some places, and some of the shops, like Giovanni’s Room, I know they are real. I don’t know if all the others are, like the gay themed videostore or Bubbles, the stripper club, but even if they are not, I bet there are similar one, since the city felt too real to not be.

Ok, ok, I know what you are thinking, this is a mystery, when you are starting to talk of the mystery. Never! Since you can’t talk about the mystery without giving out the mystery itself. What I can say you is that, I would have bet the culprit was one person that in the end was not, but I had to arrive to the last chapter to understand it.

Murder on Camac will bring you hand in hand inside the old cobbled paved street of Philadelphia, searching the evidences to resolve the mystery why “window shopping” men candy: all the best (at least for me) in one book.
