The 9th Man
by Dorien Grey
Beware of strangers bearing gifts.
A serial killer is on the loose, apparently targeting gay men at random for death by a most unusual means, and the homophobic police force seems much more interested in meeting its parking ticket quota than in bothering with a bunch of dead faggots. As the body count mounts, it’s up to PI Dick Hardesty to find out not only to find what all the dead men had in common, but who killed them, and why.
