When author Helmut Brandt is killed in an apparent mugging, P.I. Marco Fontana is hired by Brandt's partner, who suspects this was premeditated murder.

Brandt's work on the death of Pope John Paul I angered people in and out of the Church and made him more than a few enemies. His death happens soon after Brandt claims to have incontrovertible new evidence implicating people never before suspected.

Fontana doesn't believe in coincidences and takes the case. A former Catholic himself, he knows that uncovering Brandt's killer means more than exposing a thirty-year old plot to kill the Pope: it could also ruin the people named in the documents Brandt is supposed to have. Of course, if Brandt's enemies have killed once over this information, they won't hesitate to murder a P.I. who gets too close to the truth.

Entering the arcane world of the Catholic Church, Fontana encounters forces determined to keep him from getting to the truth. Though he manages to gain access to the upper levels of the Archdiocesan hierarchy, Fontana realizes that the web of power and deceit is every bit as intricate, tangled, and deadly as he imagined.

As the owner of StripGuyz, a troupe of male strippers, Fontana is no stranger to the seamier parts of the Philadelphia gayborhood. But in this case, he finds that there is an even murkier side to life in the city of Brotherly Love.

About the Author:

A former librarian, Joseph R.G. DeMarco is a native of Philadelphia.

Review:

...Marco Fontana certainly jumps off the page in similar fashion. DeMarco does an excellent job of making him a little gritty, a hero, and entrepreneur without going too over the top. All in all, if you re in for a fantastic gay adventure, Murder on Camac (which still makes us chuckle) will give you exactly the jolt you're looking for. --Edge Philadelphia

This fast-moving mystery, the first in a series, has interesting Philadelphia locations, wonderfully rendered dialogue, many colorful characters and, uniquely, lots of heart. Murder on Camac is highly recommended for libraries with large mystery collections. --GLBT-Roundtable of the American Library Association

Well-crafted and populated with interesting people, Murder on Camac, has just the right blend of strip club musk and Catholic intrigue to create a heady perfume just right for inhaling on a muggy Philadelphia night. Fill your lungs and don't exhale until you're sure who killed who. --Out in Print
