Shocking and controversial when first published in 1979, The Lure rocketed Felice Picano to fame with its candid description of the gay subculture of the era. Now a gay classic. Now available in a new edition for the first time in 10 years.

Riveting and candid in its depiction of the gay sexual subculture of the era, The Lure thrusts young widower Noel Hathaway into a dark universe of physical and psychological violence; an unwilling lure used by the police to unmask an elusive killer.

Noel's life is about to change irrevocably. After witnessing a brutal murder, he is recruited to assist the police by acting as the lure for the elusive killer.

That killer has been targeting gay men.

Undercover, Noel moves deeper and deeper into the dark side of Manhattan's gay scene. A journey that stirs his own desires, until he forgets that he is only playing a role.

Need to be discreet? No problem! Everything is sent out in plain packaging.

Deliveries in the UK seem to be pretty much back to normal since the 20th May 2021. We only send things first class and 99% are arriving in 1 - 2 working days.

International orders are still taking longer, due to different country lockdowns, the increase in online shopping and the reduction of flights carrying cargo and deliveries around the world. You should expect international orders to take longer than normal, although many are arriving on time. Some international orders take 2 weeks, some take 2 months. That's just the way of the world at the moment.

We use Royal Mail for deliveries with a tracking barcode. Once an item is with Royal Mail, we're not able to track it until it's been delivered/signed for. 

We can not be held responsible if your order does not arrive for a certain date.
