Dorien Grey's World

In the terrifying early days of the AIDS epidemic, as hundreds die, private investigator Dick Hardest tracks a man deliberately spreading the disease

The 11th book in the popular Dick Hardesty Mystery series (four of which have been finalists for a Lambda Literary Award), "The Dream Ender" presents Dick with challenges he's never had to face. Luckily, he has the support of his partner Jonathan and the circle of friends regular readers of the series have come to know and like, and the heaviness of the theme is lightened with the usual humor, clues, and red herrings for which the series is noted.

Its appeal extends beyond the gay community to all mainstream mystery fans.

Potential readers are encouraged to visit Dorien Grey's World (http://www.doriengrey.net) to watch the video book trailer and to read the first chapter of the book.

It is currently on sale or on order from nearly every bookstore, or on line from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other on-line booksellers.
Excerpt
Brunch with Bob and Mario was great, as always. As a bar owner and bar manager, respectively, they always had an endless string of stories, and we all laughed a lot...something I, for one, definitely needed. But eventually, the conversation inevitably turned to the subject of AIDS and the rumors and speculations circulating through the bars.
There's a new one going around that's really unbelievable," Mario said. "I don't know if Bob's heard it, but I'd guess so.:
"What's that?" I asked.
"That someone is going around deliberately spreading AIDS," and Bob nodded.
"Yeah, I've heard it too," Bob said.
I shook my head. "How can people believe that crap?" I asked.
Mario looked at me. "I thought so, too, until I was talking with one of my regulars who had just lost his best friend. The friend had told him he had gotten it from a really butch guy who refused to wear a condom, and after they'd finished and the guy was leaving,he stopped at the door and casually said:'Oh, and I've got gay cancer. Welcome to the club.' And he left. The friend though it was a really cruel joke, but then he got sick."
