Book Description

Jan. 15 1995 Stonewall Inn Mysteries (Book 2)
When the giant Millpond Company finds its plans for a mega-shopping mall stymied by the refusal of an elderly lesbian couple to sell their home, the ladies are subjected to ugly vandalism and frightening death threats. The powerful director of Millpond in turn hires Don Strachey, Albany's only gay detective, to protect the ladies, find the culprits, and clear the corporate name. Strachey accepts with misgivings that deepen rapidly as kidnapping, extortion, and murder darken the lives of Albany's gay community. Fast-paced, deftly plotted, and superbly written, this is one of the best Strachey novels yet.

Review

Critical Praise for Richard Stevenson's Donald Strachey Mysteries

"Don Strachey is a more ebullient character than Dave Brandstetter, and Mr. Stevenson has the skill to make him and the others in the novel thoroughly realized characters. Nor has he forgotten that this is a P.I. mystery. Skillful plotting carries the reader straight along. Highly recommended."--the New York Times Book Review (on On the Other Hand, Death)

"If you have never read a Strachey mystery before, you're in for a wonderful time."--Michael Nava, author of The Hidden Law

"A tightly plotted, fast-paced, entertaining mystery full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end."--Lambda Rising Book Report (On Third Man Out)

5.0 out of 5 stars Albany's not-so-private dick is at it again. Aug. 7 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Extortion, kidnapping and murder complicate Strachey's attempts to protect a lesbian couple from a vicious campaign of intimidation.
On this second Strachey "outting" twists and turns abound, there is an amusing cast of friends and foes, numerous sexual escapes and plenty of laughs. But best of all is the evolving relationship between Strachey and lover Timmy Callahan, which provides (along with the wittiest repartee in any gay mystery of recent memory), some genuinely tender moments
