About this book

Ordinarily Detective Lane has a knack for discovering the whereabouts of missing persons. But the city’s latest victim has disappeared without a trace. After brutally attacking his young nephew, ex-mayor Bob Swatsky has gone missing along with 13 million dollars of tax-payers’ money. Is he on the lam with the cash, or is it something far more sinister? A zany cast of characters, a love doll, and a chain smoking grandma with an oxygen tank, lead Detective Lane on an exhilarating romp through the streets of Calgary. A man hunt is on, and alone, Lane must uncover the truth before someone ends up visiting Queen’s Park ... permanently. The first book in the Detective Lane mystery series is an intriguing look at the prejudices gay cops face on the police force, and at the dangers of keeping secrets. Find out how it all began!

Queen's Park is the first installment of the Detective Lane Mystery Series. After that, check out the second book in the series: The Lucky Elephant Restaurant (winner of the 2007 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Mystery), then A Hummingbird Dance, Smoked, Malabarista, Foxed and, coming soon, Glycerine.
