Description

Doubling Up begins in the French Quarter with a day in the life of a young lawyer named Matt Durant gone horribly awry: after a few beers, Matt works up the courage to visit a gay bar. There he meets a stranger named Joey Buckner. When Matt and Joey duck into an alley behind the bar to take a leak, three drunks happen on the pair, beat up Joey, and force Matt to attack one of the men. Matt is thrown in Orleans Parish Prison and has to call his boss for help, which forces him out of the closet. The Kirkus Reviews Indie program has written that Verity "demonstrates dexterity as a storyteller, particularly in the book's second half, as the trial oscillates between moments of melodramatic contrivance and nail-biting narrative tension." The Kirkus Indie review concludes by describing the book as "an entertaining, by-the-numbers procedural spiced up by a likable, fresh-faced gay underdog and a zinger of a denouement."
