My latest fiction novel, the MM suspense tale "Whistle Pass" set in 1955, was released today by Dreamspinner Press.
I'm really proud of this story for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact it contains no active sex. Dreamspinner believed as I do that two men in life threatening circumstances beyond their control and falling in love, don't need to be naked to tell their story.
To Robert D.... thank you for asking me to write Charlie and Gabe's story.
By the way, fictional Whistle Pass is based on my hometown of Savanna, IL, a little river town whose business district remains almost as it was when I was growing up.
On the battlefields of WWII Europe, Charlie Harris fell in love, and after the war, Roger marched home without a glance back. Ten years later, Charlie receives a cryptic summons and quickly departs for his former lover’s hometown of Whistle Pass.
But Roger Black isn’t the lover of Charlie’s dreams anymore. He’s a married, hard-bitten political schemer who wants to secure his future by destroying evidence of his indiscreet past. Open homosexuality is practically a death sentence, and that photo would ruin Roger and all his wife’s nefarious plans.
Caught up in foggy, tangled events, Charlie turns to hotel manager Gabe Kasper for help, and Gabe is intrigued by the haunted soldier who so desperately desires peace. When helping his new lover places Gabe in danger, the old warrior in Charlie will have to take drastic action to protect him... or condemn them both.
