About the Book

It is 1984, and Brad Morton is a twenty-three-year-old college student who is still devastated by his brother’s suicide. For four years, he has done his best to not think of Byron or his untimely death. All he needs to graduate from Brown University is to complete a thesis on Paradise Lost. But first, he needs to find out why his brother died.

After he dies from Rhode Island to Berkeley, California, Brad heads to Byron’s former apartment building, where he retrieves a small cardboard box that belonged to his brother. The box contains a journal, several photographs, and a lm reel that send Brad on a determined quest to understand his brother’s secret life. As Brad’s search for answers leads him into a dark gay underworld plagued by a heartbreaking disease, he crosses paths with a flamboyant sculptor, a female detective, a New Age psychic, and Byron’s past roommate. But when he realizes his brother’s death may not have been intentional, Brad journeys through pandemonium filled with a long list of suspects and possibilities. Will he ever find the answers he so desperately needs to move forward with his own life?

Pandemonium shares the compelling and poignant tale of a brother’s quest amid 1980s Berkley to learn the truth behind his brother’s death.
