The Loss of Love and Truth
It’s New York City in the early ’90s when Trevor Morrow—a sharp, intuitive private detective who struggles with alcoholism—finds himself embroiled in the death of his former lover.
Trevor is a gay black man whose brilliant career on the NYPD force comes screeching to a halt following years of homophobic taunts and humiliation from senior and fellow officers. Hoping to spare his father’s reputation as a Superior Court judge, Trevor steps out on his own to focus his detective talents on helping others when the police can’t or won’t—and to save his own bacon. Trevor soon discovers that personal betrayal will be the least of his problems as the story escalates with accusations of the integral part he supposedly played in not only the murder of his ex but of criminal corruption within the NYPD.
The Loss of Love and Truth is a gripping action-based mystery that will forever break the stereotypical portrayal of gay black men.
