Boys4U is the world's most popular singing group - at least among teenaged girls - and they have closed out their sold-out world tour with a series of shows in Chicago's brand new arena. The premier group of the inexplicably popular "boy band" trend, they've just finished their very last concert of the tour. While hundreds of tour members, well-wishers, label executives, and various hangers on wait to celebrate another wildly successful tour, the lead singer is found murdered - shot in the back of the head at close range - in the shower of the backstage dressing area.

To make matters more distressing, the crime itself was almost impossible - there was tight security on the shower area at all times, the only other people back there were the other members of the band, and none of the dozens of people in the next room report having heard a shot. While the international press is engaged in an unprecedented feeding frenzy over the sensationalistic murder, Chicago Police Detectives Paul Turner and his partner Buck Fenwick have pulled the unenviable task of investigating the murder. But even the initial appearances are deceiving and as they dig deeper into the case, they uncover more disturbing truths beneath the wholesome façade of Boys4U. Now they have untangle an increasingly complex web if they are to stop a determined killer before more victims are claimed.

About the Author:

Mark Richard Zubro is the author of numerous mysteries, including the Lambda Literary Award-winning A Simple Suburban Murder and, most recently, Here Comes the Corpse. He is a teacher and lives in Mokena, Illinois.

From Booklist:

When the leader of the world's most popular boy band is found murdered after a concert, detectives discover dissension, power plays, and cruelty beneath the band's carefully protected image. Was the murdered star leaving the band because his girlfriend was the worm in a formerly sweet, wholesome apple? Is Riveting Records president Jonathon Zawicki power-crazed, sex-crazed, or both for forcing band members to have sex with him? Hatchetman critic Randall Blundlefitz claims he will solve the murder--and make that two when a second band member is pulled from icy Lake Michigan. Ah, rock 'n' roll, sex, and superstar life in the fast lane! What better backdrop for the drop-dead-funny cop banter of Zubro's series starring gay Chicago detective Paul Turner? Turner's mostly sleepless during this whirlwind mystery, making it home to his lover Ben and the two sons mostly for breakfast before more complications and corpses pile up. Sure to please and to grow Zubro's fandom. Whitney Scott
