The year is 1935, but this is an America where cross-dressing goes almost unremarked, often unnoticed, and gay relationships are mundane; gay marriage, a quotidian fact of life. Famed chef and female impersonator Pancetta Brulee of New Orleans has been hired to cater a gay engagement party for two prominent grooms at the infamous Faux Pas Island and the Robicheaux estate. Both the family and island have a terrible past, and most Cajuns and Creoles avoid the place like the plague. Pancetta attends the weekend engagement party, only to be faced with a gory murder. The family enlists her and her gorgeous yet restless ex, who happens to be on the island as a groundskeeper. The two embark on a strenuous search for the truth of a tragic Saturday night. Among the suspects are a disillusioned fiancé, a Hollywood starlet sister-in-law, an old family friend and admirer of the deceased, a godmother and countess of Romania, a disapproving mother and father, and a spurned lover of the dead man who has long been a rival for his father´s affections. Murder on Faux Pas Island unfolds as a yarn with campy humor and a hint of romance. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Lusignolo.

On the scene of a multiple murder that´s grisly even for a veteran homicide detective, Brian Clifton is stunned when one of the victims bears an uncanny resemblance to his boyfriend, James. As the similarities keep piling up, so do the bodies...and the evidence pointing to James as the killer. Since long before the shooting, James has been dishonest. He´s been evasive. Oh, and there´s that minor detail he withheld from Brian about being a gambling-addicted drug dealer. James may not be the best boyfriend in the world, but he begs Brian to believe he´s no killer. In fact, whoever did pull the trigger undoubtedly wants to finish what they started, and Brian is the only one James trusts to keep him safe.

´´I´d be damned if I would ever worship their God of unconditional forgiveness. Mine was the Old Testament´s God of justice - the God who had exposed the lascivious elders of Babylon plotting the ruin of Susannah, the God who fortified yound David against a giant Philistine.... They were flesh and blood, they prized their own worth, and asserted it, even to the point of bloodshed. What God brought out of their revenge for Israel or anyone else was not their concern. Who knows the mind of God? Man´s business is to know his own mind, and he sins when he ignores its commands.´´ In Madrid, at the age of 7, Juan Ramon Fuertes witnesses the murder of his parents by two thugs supervised by his father´s business partner, Martin Esteban. His identification of the murderers dismissed by the police, the boy vows to avenge his parents. Sustained by his lust for revenge, Juan Ramon endures years of abuse in a Spanish orphanage, where he follows the movements of Esteban in news reports, eventually noticing Esteban´s beautiful and pious son, Bernardo. Later, when Bernardo begins training as a monk, Juan Ramon´s plan crystallizes: Use the son to get the father. With cool calculation, Juan Ramon begins monastic training, finally entering Bernardo´s monastery in Toledo as Father Juan Ramon. Sensing Bernardo´s attraction to him, Juan Ramon seduces the young monk to gain access to Esteban. Gradually enthralling the devout, troubled Bernardo, Juan Ramon pursues the two thugs while planning Esteban´s murder. But all his schemes for justice hit an unforeseen snag when the fierce avenger falls in love with his tortured protgé. Told from the points of view of both Juan Ramon and Bernardo, Blood Brothers explores the fascinating mixture of lust, love, spirituality, and revenge underlying the mutual seduction of a holy monk and his unholy brother.
