Series: Daniel Valentine/Clarisse Lovelace
Part: 3

Summary (From the publisher):

Recovering from a bout with pneumonia (or, possibly, from his adventures inthe "underground" gay community of Boston's Combat Zone of the popular gay wateringhole of Provincetown), Daniel Valentine is visited by his longtime straight sidekick, Clarisse Lovelace, who announces (1) she plans to enter law school and (2) her uncle is giving her money to open a gay bar called Slate, which must open by New Year's Eve and be run by Valentine.

Before that end-of-year deadline, though, the ambitious twosome will have encountered an array of highly engaging, most unusual Bostonians. And more. Clarisse will have found a corpse in her bed, Dan will have found a few living bodies in his, and together they will have met such diverse characters as Mr. Fred of Mr. Fred's Tease 'n' Tint; his affectionate manicurist, Miss America; Slate's gossipy assistant manager, Ashes; the handsome and disingeuous Linc Hamilton; the shameful bouncer Apologetic Joe; and the gay girls upstairs—Julia, a swimming pool repairwoman, and her companion, Susie, a member of the Prostitutes Union of Massachusetts (PUMA).
