Electra Campos has kept her life cleanly divided. By week she tends to her academic duties and her students. Weekends she frequents the Down Under, a Chelsea sex club for women. When her spiteful ex Isabel Cortez issues yet another petty threat, she brushes it off-until she finds Capital College's dean in a pool of his own blood. At first, NYPD Detective Carolina Quinn seems concerned only in Electra's details of finding the body. Then the interest grows intensely professional...and personal. Why would the police think Electra had a motive for murder? She had no personal interaction with Dean Johnson. But his wife was no stranger to the Down Under, and Detective Quinn is extremely curious about every detail of Electra's other life. Bella After Dark title! Electra's Complex is a sexy romp through queer New York and the groves of academia from a writer who knows the landscape and is a confident and engaging guide. Emma Perez's book is a pleasure! -Michael Nava, critically acclaimed author of the seven-volume mystery series featuring gay attorney Henry Rios.
