    Story
    "Dick to the rescue!"

    This is the first book in the Dick Hardesty Mystery series.

    Someone is burning down gay bars. A homophobic chief of police is running for governor and the public relations agency Dick works for is supporting the chief. When the latest fire causes the death of several people, Dick wants to know who is doing it and what the police chief’s family is hiding.

    Dorien Grey creates characters that are realistic and sympathetic. Their portrayal allows the reader to form an opinion of the character’s nature without being blatant.
    I read this book before listening to it and Jeff Frez-Albrech does a good job of presenting the characters as I visualized them in the book.

    There are many types of lose in this book which are dealt with in various fashions, showing a range of human reaction in dealing with these types of lose. Some work well for those involved, some not so well.

    I would recommend this book (and series) to any mystery reader. It is short (just over 5 hours), so a good listen when you do not have the time or patience for a long story.

    "Predictable but good"

    While the plot line is somewhat predictable, the story did have several twists and was still a great listen.
