The homosexual elements and the crime elements in the book are neatly woven together. The sex scenes are hot, very hot, and would interest anybody of whatever persuasion, but I think the author included them to help the plot and create strong characters. I particularly like the way the main characters, Dan and Bud, care for each other even when they are at odds, even fighting drunk. They take care of each other both like a couple of buddies and a real couple, so that the reader is always cheering them on. I also like Admiral Asdeck, Dan's mentor, a lot. Even though some of the deals he pulls are irregular, you can tell he cares for Dan like a son and wants him to grow more mature and accepting of the realities of life in a rough society. Any smart young man would want a father figure like Asdeck. The bar manager, Carmen Veranda, is hard to take at times but she is real believable, too. I knew people like that when I was in the Navy and believe they were funny in a sissy way but strong, too. In closing I have to say that this one of the best gay mystery novels I have read as well as one of the best gay love stories. I recommend it to all but especially to guys who want a mystery story with a lot of adventure featuring he-man type heroes who are also men who love men.
