On June 24, 1973, the UpStairs Lounge—a crowded gay bar in New Orleans’ French Quarter—was fire-bombed. Thirty-two people died in the greatest mass murder of gay men in history. Yet this seminal event in the story of American crime was little noted and never solved. JESUS BURNED centers on this tragedy and on one man’s tortured search for justice. The novel is populated by quirky and wounded characters, ear-ready dialogue, and more than one gloriously surprising plot twist.
