In a place that's to die for,_ no one expects to die for real.So muses undercover detective Bradford Fairfax after an anonymous caller tells him that his ex-boyfriend, party boy Ross Pretty, has died from an accidental overdose of ecstasy in _the gayest place on earth_: Provincetown, Massachusetts. The news comes days before Brad is set to leave on a major assignment to foil a possible assassination attempt on the Dalai Lama in New York. But as the body of another _overdose_ victim washes up on the shores of P-Town, Brad becomes convinced that Ross_s death is no accident, and his intention to bury his former lover suddenly turns into a full-scale investigation. It seems that freewheeling P-Town has a dark side, one full of greed, jealousy, and deadly games. Brad quickly pins the murder on Ross's ex-employer, the malevolent Hayden Rosengarten, owner of a high-end sex resort catering to a rich and famous clientele for whom discretion is everything. But when Rosengarten also turns up dead, the list of suspects suddenly grows: could it be Cinder Lindquist, the flamboyant female-impersonator? Or Johnny K., one of Rosengarten's merciless henchmen? What about Big Ruby, the lesbian caf owner with a big heart, but an even bigger gun? And why does everyone in P-Town seem to be a Buddhist? Could there be any connection to the plot against the Dalai Lama? On top of it all, Brad finds himself falling in love with Zach, a blue-haired twink from his past. But can he trust him? Within this colourful cast of characters, it seems everyone has a secret to hide. Jeffrey Round has created a deliciously camp, sexy thriller with an unforgettable new breed of hero -- one who always gets his man.
