Blackmail, My Love: A Murder Mystery
by Katie Gilmartin

San Francisco, 1951. Josie O’Conner’s gay brother is nowhere to be found. His friends claim that just before he disappeared he became a rat, informing the cops on the bar community’s nascent resistance to raids, graft and brutality.

What’s a loving sister to do? Josie sets off to clear his name, halt the blackmailers, and exact justice for the mounting number of corpses. Along the way she rubs shoulders with a sultry chanteuse running a dyke tavern called Pandora’s Box, gets intimate with a red-headed madam, and conspires with the star of Finocchio’s, a dive so disreputable it’s off-limits to servicemen...

An illustrated murder mystery deeply steeped in San Francisco’s past, Blackmail, My Love distills history and fiction into a brilliant and visually stunning read.
2014, 312 pages.
