A simple blackmail case goes south when Chanse finds the murdered body of his muscle-boy client in what appears to be a hate crime. But neither Chanse nor the police are convinced it was a hate crime, despite the frenzy being whipped up in the city by a charismatic-but-attention-seeking gay rights activist. The trail leads to a call boy ring, blackmail of wealthy uptown closet cases, and it´s not long before Chanse´s investigation has put not only his life at risk, but that of everyone he cares about! 1.

Edgar and Macavity Award nominee Timothy Hallinan´s Simeon Grist private-eye novels have become cult favorites. This sixth series installment takes place in the West Hollywood of 1995, where the community is shaken by the brutal killing of an older man who was widely loved for his generosity and kindness. In a time when the police were largely indifferent to crimes against gay people, Simeon is hired to catch the murderer - and finds himself up against the most dangerous adversary of his career, a man who kills his victims not once but twice: once physically and once in spirit. With an unforgettable climax and a twist you won´t see coming, The Bone Polisher is a top-notch crime novel from a highly acclaimed author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keith Szarabajka.

During the height of a particularly brutal Vermont winter, a woman´s body is found one morning hanging high above the interstate. The woman, found with the word dyke carved on her chest, is quickly determined to be the victim of a brutal murder. That alone is enough to bring in Joe Gunther and his Vermont Bureau of Investigation team. But when the victim is identified not only as a state senator but as an intimate friend of the governor´s, it unleashes a publicity maelstrom that makes a difficult investigation even more challenging. While the antilesbian message is an obvious feint meant to mislead investigators, it does reveal that the governor is gay and forces her to publicly acknowledge that fact. In the meantime, while the publicity rages on to even greater heights, the police begin to focus intensely on the dead senator´s life. One thing they uncover is that she had a fondness for recreational marijuana. In Vermont, however, neither lesbianism nor marijuana use justifies murder. It´s up to Gunther and his team to find out not just who but why? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Taylorson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/008126de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

This comic novel, which takes its title from the most famous Shakespearean quote that Shakespeare never wrote, explores how easy it is to perpetrate a character assassination whether by a great playwright or a gang of online trolls. It´s a laugh-out-loud mashup of romantic comedy, crime fiction, and satire: Dorothy Parker meets Dorothy L. Sayers. Perennially down-and-out socialite Camilla Randall - aka The Manners Doctor - is a magnet for murder, mayhem, and Mr. Wrong, but she always solves the mystery in her quirky, but oh-so-polite way. Usually with more than a little help from her gay best friend, Plantagenet Smith. In this hilarious episode she makes the mistake of responding to an online review of one of her etiquette guides and sets off a chain of events that leads to arson, attempted rape, and murder. Plantagenet, vacationing in England, is accused of the murder and nobody but Camilla´s shady former boyfriend, fresh from prison, can save him. Camilla and Plantagenet are caught between rival factions of historical reenactors who are fiercely pro- and anti-Richard III. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne R. Allen, CS Perryess.
