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.
Fred Hunter is the author of a number of gay mystery novels in the Alex Reynolds series including Government Gay, Capital Queers and Federal Fag (all currently available from Turnaround).
