Transcript 18 OUT ON THE BAYOU JANUARY 14, 2000 • HOUSTON VOICE Out In Print BOOK NEWS Brooding o\er death, follies and the emperofs clothes by ELLA TYLER If you're in the mood for some light reading, there's a trio of gay-themed mysteries that can help feed that yen for less than strenuous bedtime reading. Local writer Tim Hemlin throws everything in the pot for his fifth book, DEAD MAN'S BROTH, and the result is hearty and satisfying. \eil Marshall is the chef for a catering firm and a student in University of Houston's creative writing program. As the book begins, he and a friend are leaving a gay bar and interrupt a group of skinheads beating a man. Both men wade into the melee, and as the police arrive and the skin-heads leave, Neil recognizes a nearby anti-gay protester as a prominent hate-mongering minister. One of the skin-heads threatens Neil, and since he has picked up Neil's wallet, it may not bean idle threat. But all that happens is a series of ugly letters with the recipe for "dead man's broth" arriving at the catering office. They threaten "queers" like Neil's boss and "queer-lovers' like Neil. Then, the other prominent caterer in town is murdered and his office trashed. Neil thinks it's the skinheads, but his boss is arrested. Then the main witness, a disgruntled employee of the catering firm, is killed and Neil becomes the prime suspect. As Neil and the colorful private detective C.J. McDaniels investigate (and eat their way across town) they discover that the dead men, the publisher of a local magazine, and the minister have several things in common, including a few closets. It's entertaining to see Houston through a writer's eyes and Hemlin tosses out a few cooking dps and some of the most interesting metaphors around. Orland Outland's motto must be "too much of a good thing is wonderful." DEATH WORE THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES, the third in the series featuring Doan McCandler, who prefers to wear dresses, and Bulky Van de Kamp, a poor heiress, sends our duo and their respective lovers to New York. The guys have taken jobs with gay billionaire Andrew Weatherall, who has made a fortune for himself and many others speculating on computer stocks. Weatherall hires Van de Kamp to oversee his charitable fund, and McCandler finds a job as muse to a dress designer. Weatherall has always been out of the closet, and is unabashedly liberal. His archenemy is a right-wind media magnate, Herbert Kildare, who begins his war on Weatherall by outing Weatherall's lover, a professional baseball player. Kildare owns the team that acquires the verseWorks presents Stepkanie Jim© lene^ade Lsajatkr©pe Friday & Saturday January 21 & 22 8 PM For 24-hour reservations 713/335-3445 TIM HEMLIN A CULI MYSTERY DEAD MAN'S BROTH voice player and soon after, when it looks like his intention is to ruin the player's career, he is murdered in Binky's office. When Weatherall is arrested and the bank accounts are shut down, Binky and Tim, Doan's lover, go undercover to work for KUdare's enterprises to see what they can find out. It's Doan, though, who discovers the odd love triangle that is behind the murders. The book is totally improbable, but lots of fun. Richard Stevenson's STRACHEY'S FOLLY begins as private investigator Donald Strachey and his lover are visiting an old friend in Washington, D.C. to see the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The friend spots a panel for a former lover, Washington insider Jim Suter, but he had seen the man alive and well in Mexico only two weeks before. The other shock is that also viewing the panel is a heavily disguised, former con- gresswoman. Her politics were notoriously conservative, and she resigned after a campaign finance scandal. Strachey's friend hires him to investigate and then is nearly killed. Strachey finds out that plenty of people wanted Suter dead, including a drag queen who impersonated HiJIary Clinton and Liddy Dole. Strachey finally locates Suter, alive, but a virtual prisoner of his wealthy Mexican lover. He obviously knows something, but what? Stevenson's work is an entertaining look at the dark side of politics.
