~*~ Featured Book/s ~*~
"Penzler Pick, February 2000: Astonishingly unappreciated in America in her lifetime, Patricia Highsmith has suddenly become a hot writer, four years after her death. This has been aided in no small part by the theatrical release of The Talented Mr. Ripley, with its cast of attractive young people. The success of the film has induced readers to try the book--not uncommon for popular movie adaptations--and then to look for other books by her as well. This excellent trilogy of the first three (of five) adventures of the utterly amoral Ripley helps fill that need.
In spite of being a bestselling writer in Germany, France, Austria, and other European countries, and in spite of the great fame accorded her first novel, Strangers on a Train, and the film adaptation by Alfred Hitchcock, Highsmith enjoyed no success in her native America, and she became an expatriate, living virtually all of her adult life in Europe.
The first of the Ripley novels is The Talented Mr. Ripley, in which the ne'er-do-well Tom Ripley commits murder and assumes the identity of his wealthy friend. In Ripley Underground, he is in danger of being discovered to have defrauded a large company out of a fortune, which could cost him his wealthy wife. In Ripley's Game, a casual snub causes Tom to concoct a scheme involving several murders, the Mafia, and a great deal of money.
These superbly crafted tales about the unfailingly charming but entirely reprehensible criminal are irresistible, much like watching Mike Tyson in a boxing ring (or out of it, for that matter). You know it's wrong to be titillated by it, and you feel guilty about enjoying the spectacle, but it's impossible to avert the eyes. (Amazon.com)"

Fred Hunter - Government Gay All Books by Fred Hunter - Author of : Government Gay
Paperback - 224 pages Reprint edition (May 1998) 
St. Martin's Press; ISBN: 0312187211

"Gay Mystery Novels, From the Author: A few words about the Alex Reynolds mysteries: The Alex Reynolds mysteries feature Alex and his lover, Peter Livesay, who are a supremely symbiotic "old married couple" who happen to be gay. They are based, in part, on the relationship that I had with my late husband. No, we weren't forever falling into government plots, but the dynamics of the relationship are there: the obvious caring and the "completing-each-other's sentences-ness" that happens when you've been with your partner for a while.
Along for the ride is Alex's mother, with whom the couple lives. Together, the three of them form a truly unusual sleuthing team, and an equally unusual family unit.
Although these books have the trappings of mystery/adventures, I think of them primarily as comedies. There's been some confusion about that point, and I have to take the blame for that, at least in part. I was once asked in an interview to describe GOVERNMENT GAY, and I said jokingly, "Well, if you took 'North by Northwest' and put the man of your dreams in the Eva Marie Saint role, you'd pretty much have it" -- never in my wildest dreams thinking that anyone would take a statement like that seriously (especially after reading the books: Alex and Peter's relationship is almost a polar opposite to that of Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint)! But then, in black and white and with no vocal inflection, it's all too easy to misunderstand. If anything, the series spoofs adventure type movies.
My purpose in writing this series was twofold: to make them as different as possible from my other books, the Ransom/Charters mysteries, and to write a series with gay characters where the object was for the reader to have FUN--something I've found all too lacking in gay lit. It's my hope that readers will come away from these books feeling that they've had a good time!"

"Gay Mystery Novels, Thrillers and Detective Fiction; Alex Reynolds Finds Life on the Campaign Trail Leads to Sabotage and Murder; Alex Reynolds and his lover Peter Livesay are campaigning volunteers for gay-friendly politician Charlie Clarke, stuffing envelopes and fielding telephone hate messages from the Religious Reich when the headquarters is bombed, killing the office manager. The boys reluctantly agree to help uncover the truth about the bombing but soon find their lives on the line. There's never a dull moment on the home front either, since Alex's mother Jean is caught up in a whirlwind courtship with a visiting professor. The thought of his mother dating - and effervescing about it - has Alex in a tailspin as he suspiciously questions the coincidence - or is it? - of seemingly unrelated events."

Paperback - 224 pages (May 2000) 
St. Martin's Press; ISBN: 0312263015

"Gay Mystery Novels, Thrillers and Detective Fiction; Alex Reynolds is not what one could reasonably call a "dog person"---although his mother, Jean, and his lover, Peter Livesay, most assuredly are. So when their friends Mason and Ryan need someone to care for their beloved West Highland Terrier, the only one who isn't thrilled is Alex himself. But the long week is over, Mason and Ryan have returned from their trip to Washington, and to Alex's relief, it is time to return Muffin (!).
But Alex's relief is short-lived. Ryan comes home one day to find Mason brutally murdered, Mason's doll collection destroyed, and the house thoroughly searched. Shortly thereafter, Ryan is also murdered. Now, in addition to the rest of the consequences of their untimely deaths, Alex has the one thing he never wanted---custody of Muffin. Given the state of the house and the brutality of the murders, Alex is sure that someone out there thought that the couple had something specific---something that they wanted badly enough to kill for twice.
Alex, unfortunately, could not be more right. The killers now mistakenly believe that, in addition to inheriting their friends' annoying dog, Alex and his family have the missing artifact. And they are more than willing to kill again if it isn't returned very soon."
