Overview

The camera doesn't lie; but is the film worth killing for?

When journalist Velvet Erickson's oldest friend, movie director Jeff Conant, takes a header off the Golden Gate Bridge, she refuses to believe his death was a suicide. Private investigator Yoshi Yakamota isn’t so sure.

Still she agrees to investigate his death with her Blind Eye Detective Agency. The team members soon find themselves embroiled in everything from burglary and kidnapping to drug culture and backstabbing betrayals. As they inch closer to exposing the truth, new questions emerge. Has an independent filmmaker captured the events of fateful night? And will they all live long enough to see it, or will one of them join Jeff in his watery grave?

Meet the Author

Diane Anderson-Minshall is the executive editor of Curve magazine, the country's best-selling lesbian magazine. The co-founder & former executive editor of Girlfriends magazine and the co-founder & former editor/publisher of Alice magazine, Anderson-Minshall's writing-which focuses primarily on lesbian life, popular culture, travel, entertainment and celebrities-has appeared in dozens of magazines including Passport, Film Threat, Utne Reader, Wine X, India Currents, Teenage, Bitch, Seventeen, American Forests, Femme Fatale, Diva, The Advocate, Fabula, Bust, Natural Health, Venus, and numerous newspapers.

Her essays have also appeared in several anthologies including Reading The L Word: Outing Contemporary Television; Bitchfest: Ten Years of Cultural Criticism from the Pages of Bitch Magazine; Body Outlaws; Closer to Home: Bisexuality and Feminism; Young Wives Tales: New Adventures in Love and Partnership; 50 Ways to Support Gay & Lesbian Equality; and Tough Girls. Anderson-Minshall is the co-editor of the anthology Becoming: Young Ideas on Gender, Race and Sexuality and co-author of the upcoming Blind Eye mystery series. Diane was recently named one of PowerUp's 2006 Top Ten Amazing Women in Showbiz, for her work with lesbian filmmakers.

As a park ranger, Jacob Anderson-Minshall, completed the National Park Service's law enforcement Ranger Academy and patrolled forested lands above Silicon Valley, bay and ocean-side parks and rolling hills north of San Francisco. When a disabling injury ended his ranger career, Jacob returned to his first love—writing. He co-founded Girlfriends magazine and served as the publication's first director of circulation. Now the transgender writer's weekly syndicated column, TransNation runs in LGBT publications from San Francisco to Boston; and he is a frequent contributor to the feminist publication, Bitch. Jacob's interest in criminal investigation was amplified by the 2000 murder of his brother-in-law, Tom Sherwood in Pocatello, Idaho. To date, that case remains unsolved.

Originally from Idaho, Jacob and Diane have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 14 years-and continue to do so in the company of three spoiled dogs.
