Overview

From the author of THE CHIMNEY SWEEPER and TORSOS comes a novel of a gay private eye working the mean streets of New York City's Chelsea circa 1998.... Greg Quaintance sports a Desert Storm tattoo, packs a Glock, and drives a Plymouth Barracuda, but only those who know him best see the wounds etched in his heart. As a P.I. in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, he is hired to thwart an extortion attempt aimed at Jimmy Gilbert, a billion-dollar man-child musical superstar accused of having sexual relations with a teenage boy. But when Gilbert's accuser turns up dead and the boy goes on the run, the bodies of the rich and not-so-famous start piling up. From the canyons of Manhattan to the halls of presidential power, Quaintance must now penetrate a minefield fused with greed, depravity, and violence.
