Shocking and controversial when first published in 1979, The Lure rocketed Felice Picano to fame with its candid description of the gay subculture of the era. Now a gay classic. Now available in a new edition for the first time in 10 years.
Riveting and candid in its depiction of the gay sexual subculture of the era, The Lure thrusts young widower Noel Hathaway into a dark universe of physical and psychological violence; an unwilling lure used by the police to unmask an elusive killer.
Noel's life is about to change irrevocably. After witnessing a brutal murder, he is recruited to assist the police by acting as the lure for the elusive killer.
That killer has been targeting gay men.
Undercover, Noel moves deeper and deeper into the dark side of Manhattan's gay scene. A journey that stirs his own desires, until he forgets that he is only playing a role.
