One of the residual spots of conflicts in gay rights is in the police force, and this work takes that conflict head-on in the murder of a gay policeman and the investigation by the inimitable Dick Hardesty. We meet many of the familiar characters as well as get to know Jonathan, a young hustler who becomes more than a casual acquaintance. The entire police force is suspect in this community mystery of intrigue and murder.

About the Author:

Dorien Grey is the pen-name and alter ego of a former book and magazine editor now living in a remote and time-warped area of the upper mid-west. While working for a large publishing house in Los Angeles, Dorien was instrumental in establishing a division exclusively for the publication of gay paperbacks and magazines, of which he became editor. He moved on to edit a leading L.A.-based international gay men's magazine. Dorien left Los Angeles for the mid-west to pursue his dream of opening a bed and breakfast and starting a literary service to work with writers through the mail. ("Beware of your dreams," he cautions.) He currently devotes his energies to writing, and has more novels and poetry in the works.

Review:

Grey enriches the niche with hard-boiled, sexy-yet-sensitive sleuth Dick Hardesty, sure to get the bad guys. -- Richard Labonte

Grey's best effort to date. Gritty dialogue, well-developed plots, twists and turns, everything good in entertaining mystery writing. -- MJ Hollingshead

Impeccably written mystery filled with truth and soul-searing humanity - absolutely the finest endorsement I could ever give. -- Beth Anderson
