Benders by Jonathan Orlando Woolf
A suspenseful contemporary serial murder novel, 'Benders' takes place against the steamy underworld in California amongst transgender nightclubs and the street walkers looking for money, drugs and the ultimate hustle. New to the task force, Detective Alan Patrick is drawn into the erotic world of the ladies from Club Paradiso, causing him to question his sexuality while searching for the killer committing a series of grisly murders. All the prominent victims can be linked to sketchy pickups of the benders on the strip, and the mayor's office is pressing for swift resolution. In this small community of transgender suspects, no one is above suspicion.
Past traumas, dramatic motives, and increasing tension from police bias, leaves close friends banding together... and questioning which one of them negotiating a price for a few hours of passion, is hustling their john on a one way trip. Benders is a razor sharp psychological thriller, digging deep into a world of shadows and exposing complicated layers through anger, frustration, and sensitivity. No longer viewing from the fringe of their world, cruise the strip, watch the burlesque show, and become immersed as the drama unfolds. [Now Available!]
