4th book in the Valentine and Lovelace mysteries. This takes place the first summer that Slate is open and a number of the patrons of the bar have been murdered by strangulation. An interesting cast of secondary characters in this one, one the bartenders, an Asian woman, and her bisexual husband, a gay bartender who makes mixed tapes and a gas company service man and an alcoholic catholic priest. This is another that has you going the wrong direction clear to the very end. Up to the last few pages we are even after the wrong person as the killer. Nice quick read but the last in the series.

This is the first Valentine and Lovelace mystery I've read, and I found it enjoyable, and very evocative of Boston ( )

Book description
Valentine and Clarisse Lovelace Mystery Nathan Aldyne Business hasn't been so good at Daniel Valentine's gay bar, especially since more and more of the clientele are turning up dead-strangled with neckties. The police are baffled, so Valentine and his crime-solving partner Clarisse set about to find the murderer, and save Valentine from bankruptcy. There is no end to the suspects...or the victims. And you never know which is which-until they turn up with that necktie necklace.
