Overview

When two suburban high-school students are found murdered--both boys who were well respected and liked, with solid family lives and no apparent enemies--Detected Paul Turner is assigned the case. However as a gay father with two teenage sons and a new lover in his life, Paul Turner has trouble bringing his full attention to bear on the case. But as details slowly emergy, he begins to suspect that he is investigating something more deadly and horrifying than a pair of senseless killings, something that could threaten the lives of the people he holds most dear.

Booklist gives Another Dead Teenager a rave review: "As in Zubro's previous books, readers have both campy humor and an action filled plot to keep them entertained. Highly recommended--this one's a good read in every sense of the term!"

Editorial Reviews

Charles Harmon
Zubro's style and pacing keep getting better. Consequently, his third mystery featuring Chicago police detective Paul Turner is the best yet. This time, openly gay Turner (who, interestingly, has two sons, one of them with spina bifida) and his straight partner, Buck Fenwick, are on the trail of a serial killer who brutally murders high-school athletes. (Part of Zubro's charm is how naturally he works the unexpected into his mysteries; in addition to Turner's gayness, which Zubro fits into the story without it intruding upon the plot, here he has a female suburban police chief.) When Turner and Fenwick close in on the killer, the killer goes after Turner's elder son and then his lover. The third Turner is a real treat for both fans of detective stories and fans of gay fiction.
