Struggling to raise money for his little brother's college tuition, he enters a strip trivia contest at a local bar. But when he's caught with his pants down by a couple of fellow agents, he worries that his extracurricular activities and his status as the only openly gay agent will crash his career.

It's his first real case: a desperate chase to catch a gang of criminals with their tentacles in everything from medical fraud to drugs to jewel theft. With every corner in this case--from Fort Lauderdale's gay bars to the morgue--turning to mayhem, Angus quickly learns that the only way to face a challenge is to assume that he'll survive this one--it's the next one that will kill him
