A Dave Brandstetter MysteryeBook - 1970
From Library Staff
Fadeout is the first of Joseph Hansen's twelve classic mysteries featuring rugged Dave Brandstetter, an insurance death claims investigator who is contentedly gay. Suspenseful and wry, shrewd and deeply felt, Fadeout remains as fresh today as when it startled readers more than thirty years ago.
If you like classic murder mysteries, don't miss out on this one! This is my all-time favorite classic mystery featuring a gay protagonist from 1970's. Crisp writing, fantastic mysteries, and deep, well-rounded characters make this a series to treasure.
