graphic mutilation, teen prostitution

book cover

David believes in minding his own business -- until the handsome young heir who seduces him one night is found dead the next morning. To his dismay, David is the prime suspect. With the help of a young hustler named Snake, David sets out to find the real killer. Meanwhile, he must deal with a troubled Catholic priest named Father Alexander and a deadly spectre from the past.

Qvamp says:

This book felt more like two separate stories barely stuck together. On the one hand, you had a mystery populated with gay characters, soap opera relatives, and underage gay prostitutes. One the other hand, was a stuck on story involving a gay exorcist living in a homophobic religious system trying to exorcise a gay demon.

This said, though the story wandered a bit, it was good for a first novel.
