Overview

FATHER. FIEND? SCIENTIST. BUTCHER? PATRIOT. NAZI?

Sebastian S. Mann, prominent member of post-WWII U.S. rocket development, has gone missing with other expedition members supposedly caving in South America. Having done so just days before revelations that he may have been responsible for the deaths of over two-hundred thousand gays, Jews, gypsies, and Romanian freedom fighters.

Years later, the male heirs of three missing members of Mann's lost expedition meet up in deep Brazilian jungle to explore evidence finally turned up of their fathers' possibly last campsite.

Brad Lexly and Kurt Mann, childhood friends and lovers, rekindle their previous passionate relationship but know its success, beyond the isolating jungle environment, depends upon an acceptable explanation for Sebastian Mann's disappearance. More dangerous people than they, though, seek answers, too, and also provide definite possibilities for this expedition ending up just as missing as the one gone before it.

    A one-handed read

    If you're a fan of gay erotica, you owe it to yourself to read 'SS Mann Hunt', by William Maltese. Maltese has once again shown us how well he writes in this genre. Similar to his 'Conspiracy of Ravens', in that the explicit sex scenes are supported by a good story, 'SS Mann Hunt', is an excellent blend of both. We find three men, Brad and Kurt, who are ex lovers from their teenaged years, and Jim, searching for their respective fathers who vanished under mysterious circumstances years before in the South American jungle of Brazil. Complicating the mystery, Kurt Mann's father is suspected of ties to Nazi Germany, in addition to the possible murder of his friends' fathers in the Amazon jungle. Kurt would like to clear his father's name for a variety of reasons. If he can, he and Brad hope to rekindle the relationship of their youths without the specter of those unanswered questions about Kurt's father as obstacles. Although they are all experienced spelunkers, their search leads them into some tight spots involving underground caves, unexpected and sudden flooding, and other surprises. If the outcome of the relationship between Brad and Kurt is in doubt, their passion for one another is not. In true Maltese fashion, Brad and Kurt show us in explicit detail just how passionate they are, and how they manage to overcome fatigue, jungle heat, imagined (or real) shadowy figures tracking their every move, and their own doubts about the wisdom of thier quest, to express their mutual enjoyment of each other. In addition to the frequent scenes of erotica, Maltese's wit finds expression in both the narrative and dialog and keeps the reader enthusiastically along for the ride. Complete with a surprise ending, 'SS Mann Hunt' is an excellent exploration into the Brazilian jungle and the land of gay erotica. For those looking for a story that will keep their attention, without being so weighty that they can't enjoy the real purpose of the book, 'SS Mann Hunt' is highly recommended.

    A TO-BE-RECOMMENDED GOOD READ!

    I like this book for several reasons. It's by William Maltese, a favorite author of mine whom I've enjoyed reading (in English and in German), since he first burst upon the gay "literary" scene. This novel a vast improvement over the author's previous attempt, WHEN SUMMER COMES, in that SUMMER is a little light in plot, while SS MANN HUNT has more than enough mystery/adventure/love story-line to spare without skimping by way of those expected hearty dollops of Maltese's super sex scenes. The Brazilian setting adding just the right amount of exotic context. I particularly appreciate how the understated book-jacket graphic, while successfully insinuating the erotic content (that is, after all, a phallic bunch of skyward-thrusting bananas as backdrop for that draping Nazi flag and SS-thunderbolts insignia), allowed me to carry the novel through airport terminals without resorting to plain-brown wrapping. Had Maltese and his publisher succumbed to typical industry standards, this one would have shown an almost completely naked stud, maybe only wearing SS cap and jackboots, his private parts conveniently draped in that Nazi flag and/or SS insignia. This way, I didn't have mothers pulling their children close and covering their eyes when they spotted me reading nearby, nor did straight guys resort to giving me those glaring I've-spotted-you-queer evil eyes. This Maltese book only convinces me to keep on reading Maltese for a guaranteed good time.
