Charley McElroy, a female-to-male trans spy, is having a midlife crisis. He’s been suspended from the Agency – and yet another marriage proposal has been spurned. On the other side of San Francisco, Electra, a Manhattan socialite-turned-dominatrix is reinventing herself. At the same time Frankie, a lesbian police sergeant, riles up the SFPD for too much whistle-blowing. Before long the three find each other … along with a Christian extremist’s deadly plot to drop sarin on the ‘hedonists’ of San Francisco. Yet neither the SFPD nor the CIA will take the threat seriously due to Charley and Frankie’s outsider status. Will the three be able to save their fellow ‘hedonists’ themselves? Set against San Francisco’s quirky, stunning backdrop, this funny, compelling page-turner keeps readers enthralled right up to its finish.
