Back in the day the early 90 s Johnson wrote a couple of mysteries starring a gay NYC cop It s been a while since I ve read them but I remember enjoying them I think they were solid if not exactly spectacular A third was advertised but never happened which was kind of disapppointingAnyway I was pleased to find this new ebook on The Yellow Canary follows a pretty familiar noir blueprint corrupt cops shady land deals a B movie starlet who is both and less than the public perceives her to be but adds a gay romantic triangle I had a little trouble keeping the characters straight so to speak in the beginning but the story really picks up steam as it rolls along and the last third is very hard to put down The same with the love triangle I thought the romantic complications seemed a bit forced at first but the resolution is satisfyingPulp fun Recommended to noir fans

This is an unusual gay mystery because it is set in 1950 s Los Angeles Paul Winters the assistant DA finds himself investigating the apparent suicide of a gay man in a police cell Paul is convinced the man was murdered and sets out to prove this Along the way he meets Jim Blake who is a new cop with secrets of his ownPaul uncovers a web of corruption and murder that involves both police and city officials but in seeking to uncover this Paul puts both himself and those he loves at riskThis is the first novel in a uartet of novels across four decades This first one is set in the 1950 s and the seuel is set in the 60 s It is really well written and plunges you into the intolerance of 1950 s America Homophobia racism sexism corruption and brutal policing are all drawn together in this story and left me feeling uite relieved that I wasn t alive back thenThe mystery itself is good and I am hoping that some of the story lines and themes started here will develop further in the next books The book has a noir feel to it and captures the prevailing corruptions and social expectations of the time The most brilliant thing about this book is the way it draws the reader into 1950 s America where everyone was in the closet because to be out was to risk imprisonment harassment and all kinds of discrimination and exclusion A brilliant start to what I am sure is going to be an excellent series
