Summary
"At a time when gay communities were hidden worlds, Crang needs to root out a killer and do his best to right a grave wrong. At the height of the AIDS crisis in the early nineties, Crang is enlisted by Alex Corcoran, a close friend who has just lost his lover to the disease, to find the man who infected him. Crang, concerned Corcoran might follow up on his threat to murder the man, tries to find the man to prevent Corcoran from getting himself in trouble. However, when Corcoran himself is killed, Crang owes it to his friends to find their killers. The case, which explores the gay scene in Toronto at a time when LGBT culture was still very much a hidden world and open persecution was commonplace, ends up involving a cabinet minister afraid of being exposed. A clever political mystery, Blood Count is also an emotional and moving story of a couple whose lives are devastated by AIDS and a community damaged by the prejudices of the world around them."--
