David McConnell links murder, sex and desire in recounting the killings of gay men in America in a book that Sebastian Junger The Perfect Storm says is written “with beautiful clarity and power….(on) a topic that all of us think about and few dare to discuss.” Both objective and riveting, this book combines literary narrative and journalistic reportage, relying on prison interviews and case files of some of the most notorious crimes of our era as it delves into the male psyche and blurs the line between violence and arousal.
