About This Item

Guild Press was a Washington, D.C. publishing house that catered almost exclusively to a gay male audience and played a major role in expanding the legal protections for gay publications against obscenity laws in the United States.

Content: Matthew Burlock is a brilliant, eccentric judge, faced with the facts of a bizarre ritual murder. In the run-down Delorse Hotel, two men are found half-eaten by flames: one tied to a cross, the other tied up on the bed, with African lioness masks laid next to him. The police say it is a homosexual murder but Burlock disagrees. Slowly; a strange connection between Burlock's exotic past and the murder is revealed. Somewhere in the family history of the international gun trade, his father's mysterious identity and his radical ex-girlfriend lies the answer to the bizarre puzzle.
