Anthony Bidulka, "Amuse Bouche"
Publisher: Insomniac Press | 2000-09-01 | ISBN 1894663918 | PDF | 272 pages | 12.15 MB
Anthony Bidulka gives us a gay private investigator, Russell Quant, in the city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Russell is celebrating his first year as a PI, when a case is dropped in his lap. A man has gone missing on the day of his wedding nuptials to a member of Saskatoon's upper class. This takes Russell on a wild chase through France, and ending up back in Canada, where the case continues to unfold. Refreshingly, unlike most gay fiction, Mr. Bidulka doesn't rely on tons of sex with everyone Russell meets in order to tell his tale. Amuse Bouche has a slightly slow start, while we learn about who Russell is, and how he works, but it pays off in the end. If you can, read this, then A Flight of Aquavit (the next book in the series), and you will get an excellent idea of how Russell works.
