"When an up-and-coming business man is found murdered in a most unusual and compromising way, the New Orleans' Police Department is stumped. Not only does the victim, H R Loomis, appear to be the epitome of the popular, family-loving philanthropist, but the method and scene of his death are as puzzling as the motive.
"Loomis found in the men's room of one of New Orleans' most notorious gay bars. The police decide to enlist the help of gay ex-cop Matty Sinclair. Matty is well-equipped to penetrate the gay community in a way the police can not. None to keen to accept the assignment he is nudged into compliance to cover up his lover's own rather shady past.
"Matty is smart, bitchy and when necessary, if not the most adept sleuth there's been in the buiness, extremely resourceful. His extremely witty commentary punctuates the all-too gruesome scenario as the murders accumulate."

Lieutenant Frank Washington, NOPD, turned away from the crime scene and sorely regretted a late meal and second helping of crawfish étoufée. He pulled out his handkerchief.
'This how you found him, Rico?' Stupid question. Who would move the body? Who would want to touch it all?"
