An Amish farmer turns 30 and finally realizes that his sexual orientation is not going to change, setting in motion a thought process that pulls him out of the Amish community and outside of faith altogether. His journey leads him to a university in ...
Philadelphia to study computer graphics, a studio in L.A. that produces a purulent computer game called Bloodbath, and a house in West Hollywood which he shares with two drag queens, one of whom has an ominous dark side. A gay private detective appears on the scene, and he and the ex-Amishman hit it off immediately. Their relationship hits a snag called intermittent rage disorder, and they actually break up for a time when an ex-lover reappears. There are murders, porn studs, blackmail, rape, grand larceny, illegal gambling, drug dealing, aggravated assault, a sophisticated hacker, a celebrity stalker, torch songs and more, all in a moody, low-key-lighting atmosphere pulled from the film noir classics of the 1940s. Its a fun, suspenseful read that isnt heavy-handed when existentially dissecting certain sacred-cow aspects of contemporary life.
