Albany P.I. Donald Strachey and his lover, Timothy Callahan, take a trip to Washington, D.C., to visit Maynard Sudbury, one of Timmy's old friends from his Peace Corps days, and to see the AIDS Memorial Quilt. But their visit to the quilt is marred when Maynard comes across a panel for an ex-lover - a conservative Washington insider named Jim Suter - whom Maynard had seen alive and well two weeks earlier in Mexico. Even odder than the bogus panel is the disguised visitor they spot looking at the panel - conservative ex-Congresswoman Betty Krumfutz, who resigned her seat in disgrace after a fiscal scandal erupted over her election and her husband left her for another woman. But what first seemed odd soon becomes dangerous. Strachey must find the secrets behind Suter's disappearance, the fake panel in the AIDS Memorial Quilt, Betty Krumfutz's mysterious appearance, and, most important, who is willing to kill to protect those secrets.
