why stopBook Reading & Signing by Richard Lipez

Becket resident Richard Lipez, who writes the Don Strachey gay private eye series under the name Richard Stevenson, has a new book out called Why Stop at Vengeance? 
A reading/signing will be held at The Bookstore in Lenox on Thursday, June 18, at 7 pm. 
The jacket describes the new novel: “A young African living in Albany is bent on avenging the death of his former lover in Uganda at the hands of a gay-hating mob.  When John Suruma tries to hire PI Don Strachey to burn down the church of an American missionary who promoted Uganda’s harsh anti-gay law, Strachey recites a Chinese proverb—‘If you set out on a journey of revenge, dig two graves’—and says he has a better plan.  But does he?  For soon Strachey himself is a victim of the kind of religion-inspired violence gays and lesbians are struggling against across the African continent.”
