Publisher's blurb: "Two novice FBI agents are pitted against a ring of sordid sexual blackmailers known as The Damocles Conspiracy, but first they must become compromised in the most bizarre manner imaginable!" From the Foreword: "Nathan Hale reportedly declared that his greatest regret was that he could give no more than his life for his country...How much, then, can two young civil servants be expected to give of themselves in the interests of their country, and what sort of doubts must prevail in their minds as they are asked to surrender that most private aspect of their lives, their sexuality." The Blueboy Library was the pulp fiction arm of Blueboy Magazine, founded in 1974 by Editor and Publisher Donald N. Embinder, proprietor of the first gay disco in Washington, D.C., Lost and Found, and later of Baltimore's iconic gay nightclub the Hippopotamus. Scarce in the trade. Adults only.
