National Book Critics Circle Award nominee Nelson George examines New York City's seamy pop-music culture through the eyes of HIV-positive bodyguard "D" Hunter. With a client kidnapped, flamboyant music manager Ivy Greenwich enlists security specialist Hunter to deliver the ransom. Impressed with Hunter's street smarts, this "old white dude in a fro" hires him to protect teenie bopper Bridgette Hays. As he struggles with his smoldering desire for Bridgette, Hunter tries to discover who is really behind the shrouded threat that menaces Greenwich's clients.
