Three famous but closeted celebrities plot to assassinate a homophobic US Senator while a straight FBI agent goes undercover to stop them.

Nominated for 2 Lambda Literary Awards: Best Men’s Mystery and Best Small Press Title.

What if a pop star as famous as Michael Jackson or Madonna, an athlete as big as Michael Jordan and a tycoon as powerful as Ted Turner were all secretly gay? What if they all joined forces to assassinate a homophobic, Jessie Helms-type senator? What if the FBI got wind of this threesome and assigned a straight undercover agent to investigate? A straight undercover agent who¹s a tough, blond, muscular ex-athlete, chosen because the bureau knows the pop star has an irresistible attraction to tough, blond, muscular ex-athletes?

Would the senator find a hole in his head, ending his re-election hopes? Would the gay community want such a violent solution? Would the closeted celebrities be cunning enough to pull it off? Or would they be done in by their own egos? Or worse—would the pop star succumb to his lust for a hunk of a dream man who¹s really out to bust what he calls the Gay Goodfellas?

These are the questions asked and answered in Uprising, the suspense thriller by Randy Boyd. Uprising takes premises and situations previously commandeered by straight books and films—think Grisham, think Clancy, think Crichton—and claims them for the gay community.

The result is a roller coaster ride of a novel that was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards, including Best Men's Mystery.

Professional Reviews

IN Los Angeles
A provocative compelling tome that is decidedly not politically correct. The story, part thriller, part love story, adds up to a morality tale that basically asks the reader: is violence ever justified?

The Blade Newsmagazine of Southern California
Not only is Uprising thoroughly entertaining as a suspense thriller, [it] deals frankly and directly with some of the most important issues of our age.

Zenger's Magazine
A striking, exciting and thought-provoking thriller. Though it works effectively as sheer entertainment, Uprising also raises questions about activism and how far the queer community should go in responding to the radical right.
