Street kid Sean O’Hara never had it easy, but New Orleans has driven him to his knees. His girlfriend’s broken up with him for a sugar daddy, a gun-toting pimp has robbed him of everything but the clothes on his back, and he’s down to his last two OxyContin. Sean’s no seasoned streetwalker, but he’s not above it either, not when he’s already itching for his next fix.A familiar-seeming stranger named Ángel may be his ticket to some quick cash, but only if Sean’s willing to help him indulge a high-class john’s weird fetish for the night. As Ángel tells him, in this city and this business, you have to get a little weird to survive.When night falls on the French Quarter, Sean realizes Ángel and the john want more from him than he was expecting to give. What once seemed merely strange soon crosses the line into supernatural and sinister. And Ángel, the man Sean had viewed as a partner and protector, might also be his otherworldly judge and executioner.(Publisher's note: This title contains drug use, dubious consent, and an off-screen rape.)

3,5 starsI have a hard time rating this book because I honestly have no idea if I liked it or not. I’m not saying I don’t know if it was good because it was. A little too cryptic or rushed at times maybe, but good.Sean’s life is sordid and pathetic. The only relationship he’s got is a mirage, he and...
