Evan Ericson is young and beautiful, a former fashion model and a gifted actor. When he is offered the role of a detective in a new film noir indie movie, he jumps at the chance, certain that this is his opportunity to leave behind the notoriety of appearing in porn movies and his dependence on drugs.

Some things are better left hidden. Tom Paretski's not just a plumber with a dodgy hip courtesy of a schoolboy accident. He also has a sixth sense for finding hidden things. Called in by the police to help locate a body near Brock's Hollow, he's staggered to encounter Phil Morrison, his old school crush--and the closeted bully whose actions contributed to Tom's accident. Phil's all grown up now, and Tom's unwilling attraction to him is back with a vengeance. Phil's now openly gay--and what's more, he's interested in Tom's personal charms as well as his psychic talents. As a private investigator called in by the dead woman's parents, Phil is sceptical about Tom's unusual gift, but nevertheless quick to spot its potential to aid him in his work. The further they go with the investigation, the less they can ignore their shared past, and the more the pressure and the heat build between them. But Tom isn't certain he wants to know the secrets he's helping to uncover, while there's a murderer on the loose who won't hesitate to kill again--and this uneasy couple is moving right into his sights. Publisher's note: This is lightly edited reprint of a previously published novel.

With less than a year of experience and only one big case behind him, FBI Special Agent Angus Green has joined the rarefied group of agents who have been wounded in the line of duty. Assigned to a desk job while he recovers, Angus wonders if he’s chosen the right career. He’s been following his late father’s dream for a life of adventure and travel—and instead encountered danger, pain, and heartbreak. But when Angus discovers that gay teens are being sexually abused by a pornographer in the same neighborhood where he lives, he shoves aside his lingering doubts about his job and accepts his new assignment. The case takes him from Fort Lauderdale’s seamy underbelly to boisterous beachfront bars where big-fish Russian émigrés launder illegal cash. Angus is back in full effect, but with great power comes great responsibility, and he’ll soon find his stake in saving these trafficked teens is more personal than he could have anticipated. Every case leaves a lasting scar—some are just more difficult to see. In the end, Angus will learn the truth of a saying he learned as a boy—there is a price to pay for every decision we make.

South London mechanic Devan Thompson has gone to Porthkennack to track down someone he's been waiting all his life to know. But Dev's distracted from his quest by Kyle, a broodingly handsome local of only a few months, who's already got a reputation as an alcoholic because of his strange behaviour--including a habit of collapsing in the street. Kyle Anthony fled to Porthkennack to escape from the ruins of his life. Still raging against his diagnosis of narcolepsy--a condition that's cost him his job as a barrister, his lover, and all chance of normality--the last thing he wants is another relationship that's doomed to fail. But Dev's easygoing acceptance and adaptability, not to mention his good looks, have Kyle breaking all his self-imposed rules. When disaster strikes Dev's adored little sister, Kyle steps up to the plate, and Dev sees a side of his lover he wasn't prepared for: competent, professional--and way out of Dev's league. With one man determined that they don't have a future and the other fearing it, life after Porthkennack is starting to look bleak for both of them.

Speakers of the Dead is a mystery novel centering around the investigative exploits of a young Walt Whitman, in which the reporter-cum-poet navigates the seedy underbelly of New York City's body-snatching industry in an attempt to exonerate his friend of a wrongful murder charge. The year is 1843; the place: New York City. Aurora reporter Walt Whitman arrives at the Tombs prison yard where his friend Lena Stowe is scheduled to hang for the murder of her husband, Abraham. Walt intends to present evidence on Lena's behalf, but Sheriff Harris turns him away. Lena drops to her death, and Walt vows to posthumously exonerate her. Walt's estranged boyfriend, Henry Saunders, returns to New York, and the two men uncover a link between body-snatching and Abraham's murder: a man named Samuel Clement. To get to Clement, Walt and Henry descend into a dangerous underworld where resurrection men steal the bodies of the recently deceased and sell them to medical colleges. With no legal means to acquire cadavers, medical students rely on these criminals, and Abraham's involvement with the Bone Bill—legislation that would put the resurrection men out of business—seems to have led to his and Lena's deaths. Fast-paced and gripping, Speakers of the Dead is a vibrant reimagining of one of America's most beloved literary figures. From the Trade Paperback edition.
