Red Rover by Liz Bugg
Thalia Spencer is missing. Is she in trouble or is she simply avoiding her family?When Thalia’s conservative tycoon father confesses to private investigator Calli Barnow that he offered his daughter money to give up her girlfriend and start dating men, Calli thinks she knows where to start looking. She and her best friend, novice drag queen Dewey, comb the bars and clubs of Toronto’s gay village, hoping to find Thalia hiding in plain sight. But then Thalia’s beautiful lover, Zoe, says the girl is missing from her life too, and Calli realizes the situation is more dangerous than she’d thought. Following Calli Barnow as she chases an angel-faced killer through the twists and turns of the city, from Kensington Market’s cozy coffee bars to Rosedale’s chilly mansions to the seductive drinking dens of Church Street’s gaybourhood, Red Rover is a thrilling puzzle with a sexy edge. Calli is an engaging companion, willing to throw herself into danger: body and soul.
