Doan McCandler and Binky
Created by

Absolutley fabulous! This outrageously campy series is to die for!

It features the wacky adventures of San Francisco cross-dressing P.I. DOAN McCANDLER, and his good pal, Binky Van de Kamp, and their attempts to live large, but, like the blurb says, "catering to high-class tastes on a temp-job salary can be such a drag!"

What's a poor boy who wants to be a girl to do? Amateur sleuths Doan and Binky decide to turn pro in the second book in the series, Death Wore a Fabulous New Fragrance (1998), as the private investigation agency of McCandler Van de Kamp, Inc.


  • "Death Wore A Smart Little Outfit has the feel of a darker, tangier Tales of the City, a comedy of manners with a murder plot."
