Winner of the Lambda Literary Award At the dead end of a desolate country road, a late night meeting suddenly becomes an ambush. Gay private detective Russell Quant is faced with personal threats he can't ignore, a friend who may be a foe, and a cagey client with a treacherous monkey on his back. As Quant trails a menacing blackmailer known only as Loverboy, he finds himself immersed in the midnight world of e-dating and parking lot romance. Lured to New York City, Quant tests his wit, wisdom, and wiles from the Old World grandeur of Fifth Avenue to the kaleidoscope world of Broadway's electric nightspots. The fast pace continues when Quant returns to Saskatoon, where he grapples with decoys and deceit, realizing that no one is as they appear. Threat turns into deadly reality and the need to uncover the identity of Loverboy becomes increasingly desperate.

Review:

"...there is sincerity and just a hint of sage world-weariness about the self-questioning lifestyle and relationships the author draws from his charming, vulnerable detective."
--Canadian Book Review Annual

"Bidulka treats the reader to enough red herrings with which to open a fishmarket and more than one writer's fair share of keen observations and appealing bons mots."
--Outlooks (Calgary)

"There's plenty of action here, and Bidulka spreads it out with witty dialogue, smart commentary and plenty of good, sharp writing."
--Globe & Mail (Toronto)

"Bidulka manages to spin a compelling detective story with colourful characters, hilarious situations, and touching relationships."
--Midwest Book Review

"...Bidulka takes off and runs with it into a fast, compelling plot..."
--The Free Press (London)
