If you read this book, you will never forget it. I think it is the finest example of mystery fiction in the last half of the twentieth century.
Heterosexual Noel Cummings stumbles across a murder in action. He tries to prevent it, but fails. Subsequently, he is drafted into service as an undercover operative searching for the killer in gay New York. When he enters the world, he can see right and wrong as plainly as black and white, but over time, he begins to question reality as he knows it. The murderer keeps on killing and Noel is always just one step away from him.
Picano is one of the best writers of this or any generation and The Lure is quite possibly the finest book he's ever written. When originally published, The Lure was on the Book of the Month club list and was an instant best seller. Time has not taken its toll on this book even though the action takes place some twenty years ago.
Set aside a few hours to be swept away to a dark and scary world where you don't know who your real friends are. You'll not regret it.
