In 1979, Felice Picano rocketed to fame with the publication of this shocking, controversial thriller. Riveting and candid in its depiction of the gay sexual subculture of the era, and praised by Stephen King as "Explosive...Felice Picano is one hell of a writer," "The Lure "thrusts young widower Noel Hathaway into a dark universe of physical and psychological violence; an unwilling lure used by the police to unmask an elusive killer.

Felice Picano is the author of 18 books, including the international best-sellers "The Book of Lies "and "Like People in History "as well as the acclaimed literary memoirs "Ambidextrous, Men Who Loved Me, " and "A House on the Ocean, A House on the Bay." He has been nominated for several Lambda Literary Awards and is a recipient of the Ferro-Grumley award for fiction. Formerly a longtime New Yorker, he currently resides in Los Angeles.
