Set in Dublin, The Gay Detective is both an explosive thriller and tender love story. When a Garda superintendent discovers his talented sergeant, Pat, is homosexual, he persuades him to make use of this fact in his work. Tracking down a queer-basher, Pat also discovers Ginger, his first real lover, but as his investigation turns to the murder of a gay TD, the moral path becomes an impenetrable maze, and what seemed a simple agreement with his Garda superior suddenly appears more like a Faustian pact.
