Katherine V. Forrest: Murder by Tradition (USA 2003)
From the Publisher:
When a successful gay restaurateur is stabbed to death, Kate Delafield's investigation puts her in conflict with her own fear of being outed as a lesbian. Can Kate testify for the prosecution with her integrity intact, when the killer's attorney, the only man who knows the truth about Kate's sexuality, prepares a "homosexual panic" defense?
