The Strange Case of Kurt James

Here's a nice little five star review on my gay romantic suspense novel: THE STRANGE CASE OF KURT JAMES.
"An Instant Classic!
"Kurt James is not one to stay out of the limelight. Tired of wasting his time on drugs and being known as New York's infamous call boy, he turns his life around by becoming a highly sought-after tutor for business giants and barons. However, tragedies always seem to follow Kurt wherever he goes. Scandals, violence, and murders; is he simply a spectator, or does his closet conceal skeletons? It all began when Kurt met the Darling family and found himself falling in love with the father, David, and his son, Claude — someone he has been hired to tutor. David's connection to President Richard Nixon raises a few eyebrows, but the Watergate Scandal makes things worse for him. Topped with two murders at the Darling Place on Fifth Avenue, and Kurt once again finds himself in the middle of mayhem.
The Strange Case of Kurt James by Jery Tillotson is another compelling addition to the author's fascinating list of novels with strong gay themes. This tale has the perfect amount of adventure, thrill, mystery, and excitement to make it a bestseller, similar to the author's previously published novels, Naked Jesus and White Gods. James's story will take you from the 1973 drug-fueled streets of New York to the posh neighborhoods and beyond as he tries to fight off negative labels attached to his name. Is he a home wrecker, or is there more to his story?
Jery Tillotson has long been a cherished writer. Ever since he left his career as a journalist and started penning down short stories and novels for fiction lovers, he has managed to become an international sensation, and rightfully so. With The Strange Case of Kurt James, he sustains his spot amongst other popular writers yet again, delivering a tale that is twisty and in prose that is gorgeous; the characters are nuanced and the conflict expertly written to transform the story into a page-turner.

My novel, THE ROPE ABOVE, THE BED BELOW showcased

Among the leading gay authors represented in this book, my best-seller from 1993, THE ROPE ABOVE, THE BED BELOW is highlighted with a long excerpt which describes a sex-mad Manhattan of 1980 in which a serial killer stalks blonde-haired go-go boys, which describes the hero. This book is based on an actual string of butcheries committed mostly in Greenwich Village, starting in the late 1970s. The killer was never found although the strongest theory is that the madman was actually a New York City vice squad worker.

His sibling grows into a blazing replica of his extraordinary father, Emmanuel Trident, who many in the doomed village of their birth believed to be Jesus Christ.

One nearby doorman I knew on Fifth Avenue told me that one of these gothic structures was the scene of a sensational murder trial in the seventies where the heiress was butchered. No one was ever convicted although there was heavy suspicions about the handsome young housekeeper and the stunning Wall Street tycoon and the badboy son all having a gay affair.
