Destination Unknown by Liz Strange, the third in the David Lloyd Investigations series, tackles a young woman’s disappearance from a cruise ship (available February 21, 2014).
Perfection is a flaw. This is how Liz Strange views her characters. David Lloyd is no different. This ex-cop turned private investigator can take a punch, feel compassion for a former hooker and never miss Sunday dinner at Grandma’s.
So how does Ms. Strange balance this man of every woman’s dreams? Well first I should say every man’s dreams. David is gay.
David Lloyd’s homosexuality isn’t as much of a challenge in this installment of the series. Previous books addressed the trials of David being gay and also an officer of the law. I think part of her challenge in writing from a gay man’s perspective is to keep David’s emotions in check. Strange avoids making him a stereotype.
David assesses the situation of his latest case, the disappearance of Piper Falco, a college student working on a cruise ship.
