George Baxt delivers a brilliant Pharoah Love mystery with A Queer Kind of Love. Pharoah is a black, gay NYPD detective. He's also one of the top detectives on the force and completely out, irreverent and flamboyant. His character is very well-developed, and can probably be related to several people you know. His sarcasm and wit are refreshing and well-sculpted. The whole plot, to me, was almost secondary.

Witty, creative, and clever! Three apt descriptives of George Baxt's "A Queer Kind of Love." In this book, Baxt presents detective Pharoah Love of the NYPD, black and gay. We are off for a roller coaster ride in this one as Love mixes it up with the Mafia, , luxurious brothels, and a very straight partner. This Manhattan mystery is full of excitement, surprises, and plenty of laughs, although, of course, the scenario is certainly no laughing matter! Love's partner, Albert West, is
perfect counterpoint (although predictable) and the "sounding board" he provides is Dr. Watson to Sherlock (well, in a way!) or Lewis to his Morse. The case goes back to Love's past--his old friend Marco Salino finds that his lieutenants are being killed off, one by one, This pursuit of truth and justice takes many turns through some very crazy, yes, zany, avenues before it's "wrapped up." This is a fun read--different, but fun. Baxt is to be credited with the dexterity he shows as he
gambols from situation to situation as his "not so straight-laced" protagonist gives us a treat! ([email protected])

Pharoah Love is a detective for the NYPD. However, he is also black and gay. The parts of this book that I liked the most were about him and the kind of person that he is. His character is very well-developed, and can probably be related to several people you know. His sarcasm and wit are refreshing and well-sculpted.
The whole plot, to me, was almost secondary. He investigates the murder of twin performers. The almost predictable ending did not take away, though, from my enjoyment of reading this book. Check it out today.

George Baxt delivers a brilliant Pharoah Love mystery with A Queer Kind of Love.
Pharoah is a black, gay NYPD detective. He's also one of the top detectives on the force and completely out, irreverent and flamboyant.
This latest mystery is a bit darker than most of George Baxt's writing, as Pharoah confronts tough choices presented by some of his oldest friends and betrayal by others close to him. But Pharoah deals with the conflicts and confrontations with his usual wit and style regardless of the turmoil inside him.
While parts of the ending could be predicted by the sharp observer, the book was not predictable. And the final twist of the book is definitely one of the 'laugh out loud' moments.
I highly recommend this book. It was a real treat.
