From Booklist:

First-time novelist Taylor introduces redheaded private investigator Maggie Garrett. In her debut appearance, Maggie, an "out" San Francisco lesbian, is asked to investigate a local newspaper's charge that members of San Francisco's influential Pride Club, a group of successful gay activists, are guilty of financial improprieties. Before Maggie even sets up her first stakeout on the case, she receives threats on her life, her house is burglarized, and her beloved pets are terrorized. The violence quickly escalates when the Pride Club's treasurer is beaten to death, and the Mayor's special assistant, also a Pride Clubber, is found dead. Maggie soon discovers that financial shenanigans are only the tip of the iceberg in a plot that extends far beyond the gay community and involves some of the town's most high-profile politicos. Fast pacing, a fresh, likable heroine, and carefully drawn glimpses of the San Francisco gay scene balance the mostly so-so writing, somewhat banal plot, and doesn't-always-work humor. Recommended for large collections willing to give a promising new series time to develop. Emily Melton

Review:

Taylor's engaging mystery is built around a lesbian protagonist's investigations into the politics and underworld of San Francisco's gay community. Maggie's investigation into a local gay paper's questionable accounts brings her social and political confusion as a murderer is loosed. -- Midwest Book Review
