Dick and his lover, Jonathan, finally manage to take a vacation, and it is, to some extent, a sentimental journey for Dick—it is to New York City, the site of former adventures, and where his former lover is now settled in with a new lover, Max, who happens to be involved in a theater company. So Dick and Jonathan fly in for opening night, but also arrive soon after one of the original cast is murdered—gunned down with a shot in the back, and ending up face down in a vacant lot. It seems Dick can’t even have a vacation without playing his usual role of sleuth, and there is also a different kind of role playing as well...

Dorien Grey may have started out as the alter-ego of a lifelong book and magazine editor, but in the course of the writing of the Dick Hardesty mystery series, he's taken on a life of his own. Most people live one life, in one time, and in one body. Dorien considers himself lucky to have no such constraints–he is Dick Hardesty; he lives in Dick Hardesty's world, and what Dick feels, Dorien and his creator feel. All three are hopeless romantics who share a deep rooted if offbeat sense of humor, and a fascination with words and the power of language.
Always writing with the reader in mind, Dorien considers each of his books a kind of conversation with the reader, and invites the reader to join Dick in solving the mystery. Because the clues are always there, though Dick doesn't always recognize them, the reader is sometimes a step or two ahead of him–which is fine with Dorien.Review:
A dash of Nick and Nora Charles plus hint of "All About Eve," equals flavour of "The Role Players." -- Ralph Higgins, Wayves
Grey demonstrates mastery of pure fiction, not just a whodunit but well-crafted slice of history, finest novel yet. -- Jay A. Hartman, Knowbetter.com
