    Summary

    "By the middle of the third verse, Alex’s heart was racing; it felt like a fight. Not the music -- they were twining together perfectly, Michael’s honey baritone with Alex’s brassy tenor, mixing and swirling.

    The fight was the control over his instrument. He kept wanting to smile and the Es got musical theater bright until he got them under control. Michael glanced at him during a repeated chord and Alex gulped, his entire throat getting tense, the next note coming in sharp. He fixed the next note, but barely. Once Michael got to the “Amazing Grace” descant at the end, Alex felt -- free. Falling. Full."

    Alex Manes moves to Roswell for the first time at age 27. He joins the Queer Chorus of Roswell and meets a stunning baritone with a secret that might blow-up his whole world.

    Summary

    Alex Manes, renowned Private Detective, is resting board the Orient Express, after solving an open-and-shut case in Istanbul, when tragedy strikes and one of the passengers is discovered murdered in a locked cabin. Knowing he might be the only one who can solve this locked-room mystery, Alex takes it upon himself to solve this - seemingly - simple case.

    Things quickly take a turn for the complicated as a 10-year-old murder case becomes connected to the current victim, the passengers might not be as trustworthy as they seem and Alex runs into a few old acquaintances.

    The case may not be as simple as Alex first assumed, and soon he is faced with an impossible choice.

    Will Alex solve this case, or does a murderer walk free?

     

    Based on Dame Agatha Christie's novel and the most recent movie adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express.

    Summary

    The jock geek had just taken another bite of his hot dog as he rounded the hood of an old beat-up Chevy truck when there came a derisive snort from the other side of the windshield. The sound had carried out through the driver’s side window, and Kyle paused as he cleared the wide sideview mirror, squinting to peer inside the darkened cab. The window was rolled all the way down, which was a little odd given it was still January in the desert. Most couples brought lots of blankets and cuddled together inside their cars to watch the movie, but this guy was just casually leaning back in his seat, left arm resting on the open sill, right arm wrapped snugly around his cozy-looking—

    “Alex?!” Kyle mumbled around a mouthful of food.

    “What’s the matter, Valenti, were they all out of tacos tonight?” Alex quipped.

    Or

    Three times Kyle got schooled by his friends and family plus one time he finally got his shit together.

    Summary

    ‘Guerin, there’s someone here to see you!’ Carlos calls out and Michael groans.

    ‘What?’ He asks, he was just about to get back to work.

    ‘Oil change or something?’ Carlos just answers and why does it sound like he’s grinning?

    ‘Can’t you do it? I’m elbows deep in that Camaro.’ Michael steps towards the car again, to make sure he actually is working on the car.

    ‘No can’t do, he asked for you specifically.’

    Summary

    Rosa’s been dead almost ten years now. While dead, she’s spent more time with her sister and father and secret family than she ever did while she was living. It’s funny, people say you don’t truly appreciate someone until they’re gone. Well, Rosa can attest to the fact that the opposite is true as well: you don’t truly appreciate your family until you’re dead and they can’t hear you teasing them about what a dumbass they’re acting like in front of their high school crush.
