Description

Noah Nordstrom has been getting drunk at parties, eating crackers topped with apricot-hash jelly, and dissing the religious beliefs of his father, who hosts a popular Christian radio show and whom Noah accuses of spreading hate. When two local gay teens are murdered, Noah's antievangelism intensifies—he's convinced the killer is a caller on his dad's program. Then Noah meets Will Reed, a cool guy. But when he learns that Will is gay, and possibly into him, Noah gives Will the brush-off. Meanwhile, the killer is still at large . . . and Noah is soon drawn into a game of cat and mouse as he investigates the murders and closes in on a dangerous enemy.
