When Morgan Jensen arrives back in town, Patrick Newman and his clique of friends gear up
for some wild times again; that is, until Morgan gets bashed in the head and everyone
wonders who may have held a grudge from the past. Since Patrick is a lawyer with a
prestigious San Francisco law firm, his friends, particularly his lover, encourage him to
investigate the case, even though he does not practice criminal law. When one in their
group is implicated in the murder, Patrick steps forward to help out and starts delving
into the past.
Morgan had been the gay manís ďgay manĒ or so Patrick had thought until he began
discovering the different beds in which Morgan apparently rested his head. The more
Patrick learns of Morganís history, the more he realizes how little he had known about his
friend and of Morganís plain disregard for the impact he had on othersí lives. While
another friend from the past shows up and begins to challenge Patrickís assumptions about
sexual orientation, Patrick has to wrestle with the possibility that Morganís death is not
just simply a hate crime but may be based on a simple prejudice, one like his own.
