Dorien Grey's World

What happens when an ordinary guy who does not believe in spirits encounters a spirit who believes in him?

"His Name is John" is the first in the new Elliott Smith Mystery series by the author of the 12-book Dick Hardesty Mystery series.

To get a better idea of the book and the series than can be given here, please go to to view the video trailer for "His Name is John" and to read the first chapter (on the Books page).
He was still angry when he went to bed, and the dream-voice came.

"I'm sorry."

"Yeah, you've said that." He was aware even in sleep that the anger was still with him. "Why don't you just go away?"

He instantly regretted the thought when an overpowering sense of fear, like being immersed in ice water, overcame him. The fear, he knew, was John's.

"Where would I go?"

The fear was replaced by a feeling of sorrow and loneliness so intense Elliott wanted to cry.

"I didn't mean that. I'm sorry. It's just..."

"I understand. It's very hard."

"But what do you want of me? What can I do?"

"Help me."


"I don't know."

Professional Reviews

His name is Smith, Elliott Smith. Created by ever-clever Dorien Grey, the mystery world's newest novice sleuth is at once smart, sexy, and immanently likeable. "His Name is John" is part mystery, part thriller, part romance, part modern-day ghost story. Keep this one on the night table, as it's sure to keep you reading long after lights out.

Each chapter leaves the reader desperate for more pieces of the puzzle, as one of the most unlikely and unique duos of crime fiction maneuvers their way through a maze of lost memories, family secrets, mistaken
identity, and murder.

Anthony Bidulka, author of "Sundowner Ubuntu" and Lambda Literary Award winner for "Flight of Aquavit"
