"Overall, this was an exciting read. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a non-cop type action 'hero' who’s not afraid to use his drag skills to get the clues to solve a crime. (4.25 Stars)" --Joyfully Jay Reviews

After his exciting debut in The Combat Zone, detective-for-hire Cody Harper finds himself in the sights of Rodney Jessup, a pious reverend turned failed presidential candidate. Despite Jessup’s involvement with the Combat Zone killer, Cody finds himself unable to refuse the job: he must discover who has been threatening Jessup and his family… or die trying.

As his investigation heats up in New York City and gets ever more dangerous, Cody meets Tony Vargas, Jessup’s bodyguard, and the two realize an immediate connection that is more than just physical. With the help of Tony and Desdemona, Cody’s gorgeous cross-dressing persona, Cody intends to close this case quickly and throw the perpetrator in prison. But can things really be that easy? Or is there much more to this case than meets the beautifully mascaraed eye?
