After finding the name of a friend, who isn't dead, on an aids memorial quilt, Strachey starts to look into the disappearance of a man who was deeply involved in US politics but who also broke an uncountable number of hearts. Traveling around the US and Mexico Strachey tries to find out what has happened... And why.
Although this Strachey detective is quite an entertaining read, it is unfortunately nothing more. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312243286, Paperback)

In Washington, D.C., to view the AIDS Memorial Quilt, gay P.I. Donald Strachey, his lover, Timme, and their friend Maynard discover a panel for an ex-lover of Maynard. The trouble is that the ex-lover isn't dead. Shortly thereafter, Maynard is gunned down in his driveway in a seemingly random attack. But the timing of the attack is too perfect for Strachey to believe it is conincidental, and he must find out what secrets lie behind the ex-lovers's disappearance before the unseen attackers turn their attention toward Timmy and Strachey himself.
