    I like this series such a strange period piece But the San Francisco public library only has non circulating copies of the next and last two books in the series Have to figure out how I m going to read those.

    Well, Valentin and Clarissa are now at Provincetown for the summer Valentin working as a bartender and cruising as if the world was about to end Clarissa, working in a tourist trap that sells the tasteless knickknacks that even the evilest person in the Universe couldn t imagine But at least she had nabbed a hot cop for herself.Now, if she were to stop finding dead bodies, well everywhere that would be nice, too.This is funny, entertaining and well written, with Clarissa on the lead, tryi Well, Valentin and Clarissa are now at Provincetown for the summer Valentin working as a bartender and cruising as if the world was about to end Clarissa, working in a tourist trap that sells the tasteless knickknacks that even the evilest person in the Universe couldn t imagine But at least she had nabbed a hot cop for herself.Now, if she were to stop finding dead bodies, well everywhere that would be nice, too.This is funny, entertaining and well written, with Clarissa on the lead, trying to find what s really going on while Valentine refuses to acknowledge any possibility that the deaths are another thing than accidents or suicides And it s also a portrait of the gay s summer Paradise, with a lot of wonderful, quirky characters and the particular fashion sense of the 80s So many padded shoulders And believe me, when the end comes, you ll be as surprised as everybody there was PA very recommended read

    I thought this pulpy gay mystery from the early 80 s would be a fun read for a weekend getaway But it s pretty terrible.I get that rejection of traditional norms was important to the evolution of the gay movement, in much the same way that a rebelious teen questions his parents values while forming his own identity But the characters here aren t free, they re just slutty and self satisfied Boring, even Worst of all, they aren t nearly as witty as they think they are.The mystery is underdeve I thought this pulpy gay mystery from the early 80 s would be a fun read for a weekend getaway But it s pretty terrible.I get that rejection of traditional norms was important to the evolution of the gay movement, in much the same way that a rebelious teen questions his parents values while forming his own identity But the characters here aren t free, they re just slutty and self satisfied Boring, even Worst of all, they aren t nearly as witty as they think they are.The mystery is underdeveloped, and the ending is ridiculous Not campy fun ridiculous, so stupid it makes my head hurt ridiculous

    This book is fun, lots of fun, brining back happy memories of summer life in Provincetown The story starts with a party in Ptown and everyone is dressed up as their favourite evil characters with plenty of gay camp to go around The mystery is secondary to the story, I know who did it after reading the book but I m still not really sure why.The scenes in the tacky gift shop add great humour, I laughed out loud at parts.Really enjoyed this book, started the next in the series as soon as I finish This book is fun, lots of fun, brining back happy memories of summer life in Provincetown The story starts with a party in Ptown and everyone is dressed up as their favourite evil characters with plenty of gay camp to go around The mystery is secondary to the story, I know who did it after reading the book but I m still not really sure why.The scenes in the tacky gift shop add great humour, I laughed out loud at parts.Really enjoyed this book, started the next in the series as soon as I finished it

    Second Review To kick off Pride Month, I revisited this Nathan Aldyne gem On my second read, it was still a delightful slice of summer Provincetown makes for a great setting, and the mystery involving secret trysts, drugs, drag, and bodies on the beach and poolside makes for a cheeky, wild ride full of humor and sunshine One of my favorite mysteries First Review Another enjoyable entry in this series The Provincetown setting makes it a great summer read Lots of fun


  9. Jayde Jayde says:

    Published in 1981, it is very much of its time Before AIDS became news In its own way, it mirrors Kramer s Faggots , less direct but very much a parody of the gay community, in this case as seen through a very pink filter It s witty, especially in the banter between to two leads.

    Just a fun, campy romp through 80s Boston and Provincetown gay life as the setting for this Thin Man style noir reluctant detective novel.
