In Washington, D.C., to view the AIDS Memorial Quilt, gay P.I. Donald Strachey, his lover, Timme, and their friend Maynard discover a panel for an ex-lover of Maynard. The trouble is that the ex-lover isn't dead. Shortly thereafter, Maynard is gunned down in his driveway in a seemingly random attack. But the timing of the attack is too perfect for Strachey to believe it is conincidental, and he must find out what secrets lie behind the ex-lovers's disappearance before the unseen attackers turn their attention toward Timmy and Strachey himself.
