At thirty-two, Benjamin Justice was one of Los Angeles best known journalists. He had the respect and envy of his colleagues, the admiration of his employers and the ear of the city's population. Until he won the Pulitzer Prize for one of his features and everything came crashing down. Found to have invented the subjects of his piece, Justice was forced to return the Pulitzer, was fired from his job, and became a pariah to most of his former colleagues. Now in his mid-forties, still considered a disgrace to his former profession, HIV-positive, and once again single, Justice has once again begun to put his life back together. Under contract to a major publisher to write his autobiography, Benjamin Justice is trying to put all the elements of his life into perspective for the first time. While searching out a priest from his childhood, Justice enlists his closest friend's fianc - a columnist for the Los Angeles Times - to bring pressure upon the powers that be to reveal the long-hidden truth about this almost forgotten priest. Then his friend's fianc is killed in a tragic hit-and-run accident and Justice is called upon to look into the mysterious circumstances of the too-convenient accident. Reluctant at first, Justice soon finds himself in the midst of a complex case involving a decades old child murder, a powerful and controversial Cardinal, and elements of his own dark past. John Morgan Wilson's Edgar and Lambda Literary Award winning Benjamin Justice novels are amongst the most highly regarded and widely praised crime fiction to have emerged in the past decade. Now, in Blind Eye , Benjamin Justice returns in the most compelling and controversial novel yet in this not-to-be missed series.

I started this book because of a favorable review in the Globe & Mail. Benjamin Justice is a HIV positive male whose partner has died. The reader learns that Ben shot his father at age 17 and was molested by the local priest. Hard to believe that his best friend is a black female reporter, and the plot gets harder to believe, so I gave up. I read a paragraph here and there in the rest of the book, and it gets quite gory. Not my type of book.
