Adam Murphy wants to be a serious journalist. Unfortunately, he spends his days writing copy about underwear and abs for a gay lifestyle magazine. When a troubled young porn star brings him a tip about a recently deceased marine's secret visit to an infamous pimp for underage boys, Adam is determined to break the story... until someone starts threatening his life.
Undeterred, Adam begins to unravel a deadly conspiracy involving runaway sugar daddies, salacious A-list parties, and three handsome young men who have vanished without a trace. Now he must enter the seedy underbelly of LA to find the truth behind their disappearance, as well as the disappearance of his ex-lover, Corey - who may have some deadly secrets of his own.
In this supercharged modern noir tale of sex, drugs, and revenge from New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice, getting to the bottom of a scandalous story can be dangerous... if not downright fatal.

The narration was really wonderful and they way the narrator was able to take you from character to character in different voices which makes you imagine each character in a different way. The story weaves a web that takes you down a road of surprises around every corner.
Building up the main character to understand their personality and how they react to everything going on. After that, the novelist, the bathhouse, the suicide, the boat, the everything. The boy in white running through the forest with his arms stretched out in front of him.
He was incredible. He was able to change his voice at a moments notice to match each person in the book. He didn't seem like he was reading a story but telling one. One of the best narrations I have heard.
Too many to count.
A great book for anyone. Just because it focuses on gay characters doesn't mean you have to be gay to read it. There was a great plot to a book that could have been about anyone, gay or straight.
I'm a horror, sci-fi fan. My favourites are Lovecraft, Poe, Bierce, Jackson, Levin, and King.
It was entertaining and kept me guessing for awhile.
This was much better than The Vines and The Snow Garden.
He offers each character his/her own voice, offering a perfect pace, which kept me engaged.
It made me think a lot about human trafficking and addiction, neither pleasant topics, but both serious issues in the United States.
