Isreal and Evangeline - a gay man and his woman friend - have lived together forever while outside the city crumbles. He's an erotic cartoonist: she makes exotic jewellery and works as a receptionist in one of the whorehouses in their raunchy neck of the woods. She collects clippings of unsolved murders of women from lund newspapers and is a rational tippling cynic who has flashes of psychic ability. He's an ageing party boy who has been getting more and more into metaphysical reading and exploring heightened states of mind through S/M sex clubs and a drug called SILT that has permeated the gay community. SILT causes a shift that takes users to a different reality. Sounds pretty good, until gay men of a certain age - Prime Cuts - start disappearing without trace. When Izzy joins the ranks of the missing, Eve is forced into a mission beyond anything she's ever dreamed or imagined. Part thriller, part mystery, part ghost story - Izzy And Eve is edgy, sweet, wild, sensuous, mysterious, ominous and hopeful.
