AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The son of a Baptist preacher, Bryce Petty looked like a choir boy. But when he was found murdered in Wellington, New Zealand, his less-than-angelic past became front-page news. President of the Melbourne-based gay and lesbian broadcasting firm, Spectrum Television, Bryce had vanished a few months previously, leaving behind him a trail of bad publicity and debts - and a slew of enemies. New Zealand top cop, Detective Inspector Amanda Valentine, follows the trail to Melbourne, where she and her Australian colleagues join forces to track down the killer. Complicating matters, Amanda's personal life is in turmoil. Unable to balance careers and commitment, she and her on-again/off-again girlfriend Debby Daley have decided to try an 'open' relationship. With Debby away on special assignment in Rwanda, Amanda finds herself increasingly attracted to Detective Sergeant Mary Devine, who is working with her on the Australian end of the investigation.'
