(Gay / Erotic Romance / Contemporary / Mystery / Detective / BDSM / Dark Humor) Johnny Wager has been a loser all his life and proud of it. But when a West Hollywood twink ends up dead in a hotel room with Wager literally holding the bag, he knows his life is going to change for the worse. Pursued by the West Hollywood sheriffs for a murder he knows he didn't commit, Wager has to stay one step ahead of them and prove his innocence. It doesn't help matters any that his own son, Mark Wager, is a deputy sheriff who has joined the manhunt and has more reason than anyone to find the father who failed him all his life and bring him to justice. Add Hyacinth, a six-foot-five drag queen from New Orleans, Taz, her Puerto Rican boyfriend, an ex-Marine porno filmmaker and his incontinent Basset Hound Columbo, and the Armenian mob chasing them all through the streets of Los Angeles and the art walks and canals of Venice Beach. Wager pursues his own answers to the question of who is trying to kill him in the sleazy bars and back alleys of Hollywood all the way to Cathedral City. Can Wager stop the killers and reconcile with his son or will he end up being the next victim? Betrayed by friends, beset by his own conscience that has come back late in life with a vengeance, and the need to redeem himself, he battles the ruthless mob in the only way he knows how: with cunning and a total disrespect for the law.

In this latest glimpse of L. A.'s dark underbelly, P. A. Brown puts one very chilly hand on your shoulder while poking you in the ribs with the other. (What you do with your hands is up to you.) L. A.'s lost, lonely, and well-nigh unredeemable may find themselves stuck here in Brown's sultry, sexy Memory of Darkness, but at least they're not without a sense of humour. --Jeffrey Round, author of Death In Key West and The P-Town Murders
I just finished Memory of Darkness and really enjoyed it. Very colorful characters and I loved the father/son dynamic. I would definitely read more about them. --Rick R. Reed, author of Orientation and M4M
