DAN KAVANAGH Duffy
The first novel in a darkly humorous Londonbased crime series featuring bisexual private detective Duffy. Duffy is a detective like no other. A bisexual ex-policeman with a phobia of ticking watches and a penchant for Tupperware. But what he lacks in orthodoxy he makes up for in streetsmart savvy and no-nonsense dealings. Hired by Brian McKechnie to find out who’s blackmailing him, Duffy heads to his old patch in Soho to begin inquiries of his own. Helped by some shady characters from his past, Duffy discover that while things have changed since he was working the area, the streets are still mean and the crooks walk arm in arm with the blues. Dan Kavanagh is the mysterious author of the Duffy detective novels. There has been much spculation over the vailidity of his biography but he says of himself: ‘Dan Kavanagh was born in County Sligo in 1946. He has been a steer-wrestler, a waiter-on-roller-skates and a bouncer in a gay bar in San Francisco. He is currently working in London at jobs he declines to specify’.
