What People Are Saying

Denise Pickles
The Paper Mirror, this tenth book in the Dick Hardesty mystery series, displays the development of the author, Dorien Grey, as his plotting and writing become increasingly skilled. While setting out all the clues to the mystery quite fairly, he is not above dragging a few small fish of an interesting hue across the path of the reader. The plot is well constructed and intriguing. His characters are, as ever, skillfully drawn.
Elizabeth Burton
As always, Dorien Grey offers splendid entertainment and enough plot twists for the book to qualify as rotini. It's hard to decide which is more fun, working with Hardesty to solve the riddle or watching him adjust to parenthood.
Mollie Martin
The Paper Mirror, a Dick Hardesty mystery by Dorien Grey, is his best to date. As is found in other writings offered by this writer, the characters are clever, often conniving, excellently masterminded, and thoroughly developed. I particularly enjoyed the repartee between gay partners Hardesty and Jonathan as they settle into their roles as new parents to an energetic youngster. The Paper Mirror is an excellent choice for any who enjoy a good mystery, excellent presentation, and fine writing.

    Paper Mirror

    Paper Mirror is the tenth installment in the popular Hardesty Mystery series. Author, Dorien Grey has crafted a fast paced mystery that continues an established and much loved series, yet easily stands alone, welcoming new readers. Private investigator extraordinaire, Dick Hardesty was settling into the role of family man after adopting Joshua, his partner's orphaned nephew when an invitation to a highly publicized gala leads to the most intriguing case of his career. Once a crotch-tingling playboy, Hardesty had never been particularly fond of black tie functions, he was more of the party persuasion. Jonathan, on the other hand, was always eager to square his bow tie and rub elbows with the wealthy and well to do. The fact that his favorite author, Evan Knight, would be attending this noteworthy event, just added fuel to Jonathan's barely containable excitement. The Burrows Library had been literally willed into existence by the late Chester Burrows, an eccentric collector of homosexual writings. It was said that his, was the largest private collection of books on the subject. With such a colorful character as the library's benefactor and namesake, it was not surprising that the opening night celebration was slated to be the social event of the season. At the very moment Jonathan is being introduced to famed author, Evan Knight, the courtesies are interrupted, when Dick is informed the body of a library cataloger had been discovered in the basement. Police surmise Taylor Cate's death was the result of blunt force trauma caused by an accidental fall down the stairs. However, due to lingering doubts among board members, Dick is asked to investigate the incident. As the story progresses readers are treated to a collage of friendships, romantic entanglements, and secrets among individuals with long shared histories. The twists and unexpected diversions are all part of this skillfully constructed mystery, which in retrospect provide several 'a-ha' moments for the reader. Dorien Grey's strong emphasis on story development and character interaction, as opposed to stereotypical fluff, has almost certainly opened the doors to a wider audience. A well written novel, that showcases our similarities rather than our differences, I recommend Paper Mirror to all who enjoy a good read. Happy Reading! RJ
