Demise of the Diva(2006)
A novel by Lizbeth Dusseau
Patrick Penny Investigations - brainchild of intrepid lesbian P.I.s Leslie Patrick and Robin Penny - takes on a really hot case: the murder of the notorious Diva Felicia Roman. The circumstances of the crime lead the pair on an excursion through the leatherdyke underground, where motives - and desires - run deep. But as Leslie and Robin soon find, every woman harbors her own closely guarded secret... Can they free their jailed client, Betsy - Felicia's last lover? She could be the killer... but so could Martha who's been topping the insatiable Diva... or Remy, Martha's jealous lover, or Zelda, their mysterious trampy friend, or even the intimidating leatherdyke Domme Jane Hugh, who may have the most to gain from Felicia's demise. While Leslie and Robin unravel the mystery at the Victorian mansion on Roman Hill, sexual feelings between these former lovers are rekindled. Suddenly Leslie finds herself profoundly attracted by the S&M world that Robin loves - the one she's so adamantly shunned.
