When a successful gay restaurateur is stabbed to death, Kate Delafield's investigation puts her in conflict with her own fear of being outed as a lesbian. Can Kate testify for the prosecution with her integrity intact, when the killer's attorney, the only man who knows the truth about Kate's -sexuality, prepares a "homosexual panic" defense?

In addition to penning the legendary Kate Delafield mystery series, Katherine V. Forrest has written the lesbian romantic classic Curious Wine and the science fiction novels Daughters of a Coral Dawn and Daughters of an Amber Noon. She lives in San Francisco.
