Abstract:

"Noel Cummings's life is about to change. Irrevocably. After witnessing a brutal murder, Noel is recruited by the police to serve as a lure for the killer at large. Undercover, Noel delves deeply into New York's gay underground - shadowy backroom bars, pulsing strobe-lit private clubs, the thrill-seeking world of extreme wealth - where he gradually becomes aware of the darker forces at work in his once-placid life. Suddenly he knows too much, or maybe not enough. Caught between an obsessive policeman and his mysterious prey, Noel must decide: Whom can he trust? And he'd better make the right decision, because his life depends on it."--Page 4 of cover.
