Inhaltsangabe: During his distinguished career as a journalist, Mark Manning has seen it all--riots, murder, political corruption, and every manifestation of the dark heart of the human species. But even his proven emotional resources will be stretched when the home he shares with his lover, architect Neil Waite, and his ward and nephew, Thad Quatrain, becomes the site of one of the most daunting, taxing, and potentially dangerous of all human rituals--a wedding.

Roxanne Exner, best friend to both Mark and Neil, is having her nuptial ceremony at their house in the normally bucolic Dumont, Wisconsin, partly because Carl Creighton, her husband to be, is in the final weeks of his campaign for lieutenant governor of Illinois. For Roxanne, Dumont will afford some needed distance from the campaign, and for the city of Dumont, it will be the social event of the season. The wedding, despite everyone's fears, comes off with nary a hitch. The reception, however, takes a disastrous turn when a local matron, who happens to be a major donor to the campaign of Creighton's rival, is killed in what appears to be a freak electrical mishap.

Authorities soon discover that the electrocution was no accident. Then another shocker--Roxanne herself becomes the prime suspect. If Roxanne is ever to enjoy her honeymoon, and if Carl and his running mate are to stand a chance of election, Mark finds himself in a race against the clock to solve a most perplexing murder.

Vom Autor: In many ways, my sixth Mark Manning mystery seemed to "write itself." Previous installments had established a momentum of converging plotlines that cried for resolution in this book. When I set to the task of outlining the story, I found that its overarching framework was already in place. All of the subplots relating to Manning’s home life were drawing to a close.

The main subplot of these books, which gives the series its "serial" flavor, has dealt with Manning’s self-recognition and development as a well-adjusted gay male. In Hot Spot, he’s where I want him to be in his journey toward maturity. The ending of the book, therefore, has an unmistakable tone of finish and conclusion, but loyal readers needn’t fret. This is not meant to signal the end of the series. In fact, a seventh Mark Manning is already contracted for. But future books may exhibit a shift in tone and focus, and the stories may grow a bit darker, with more "edge." We’ll see.

Regular readers of the series will also note that the main plot of Hot Spot—the whodunit—is considerably more topical, timely, and opinionated than previous installments. The story deals, at least tangentially, with some political issues that affect me deeply. If the depth of those feelings sometimes spills over into the narrative, so be it.
