NEW YORK SNEAK PREVIEW
Fire Island, the famous gay vacation spot just a quick ferry ride from New York City, is the perfect spot for fun in the sun, epic parties… and murder.
Joseph, an introverted young lawyer in need of some friends, makes a solo pilgrimage to the island. He arrives ready for never-ending parties full of eligible men, but it’s April and the parties don’t start for another month. As he sits sullenly on a pier, he meets a handsome stranger who lures him into The Meat Rack. The Meat Rack is Fire Island’s fabled hook-up spot in a secluded grove of trees. Once there, Joseph is drugged and robbed. Delirious, he staggers through the pines looking for help and comes upon a murder scene. He runs for his life and narrowly escapes.
His luck changes when he meets Cameron. Alone with no money, no phone, and nowhere to go, Cameron and his friends adopt him for the long weekend. Just like that, Joseph’s dreams of parties, new friendships, and romance are back on track. But does he dare let his guard down and have fun with a murderer pursuing him? And what about that murder; did it really happen or was it a drug-induced hallucination?
Last Ferry is a slow-burn thriller that has a little bit of everything. It has enough mystery to keep you guessing and enough danger to have you on the edge of your seat. Add in an ensemble of relatable characters with hot bodies and you’ve got everything you need for a steamy suspense thriller.
