Strut, 470 Castro Street Map It

Late one rainy night in Baltimore, Andrew—an affable graduate student researching the works of Dostoevsky—meets a handsome stranger named Jack. The two immediately hit it off and start dating, despite the fact that Andrew already has a super-duper boyfriend and that Jack has the Mark of the Beast—you know, 666—burned into his forehead. Andrew finds himself breaking things off with his super-duper boyfriend, distancing himself from his friends, and doing things that–well, they’re just not right. But then he realizes Jack wants more than a boyfriend. It’s too horrible…and he must escape.
