Product Description

Product Description

Detective Jim Bannon is no ordinary detective. With a dress code of anything in black, short leather jacket, blue tinted spectacles and shoulder length hair, the claustrophobic and asthmatic inner-city, Dublin born detective is on the case of London’s most cunning and perverted serial killer.
A young woman has been brutally slain in a murderous act involving asphyxiaphilia. A connection between the victim and England’s largest online dating site is discovered.
It soon becomes a race against time to catch the deviant before the bi-curious and dangerously adventurous Robyn O’Brien, an astrology-loving Harley Street receptionist, falls victim to the killer’s insatiable lust.
Asphyxia is a fast paced thriller, full of unsavoury reality, deception, thrills, twists, warped eroticism and dark humour, that will leave you gasping for breath as you approach its climax!

Asphyxiaphilia: An extremely dangerous sexual practice involving the restriction or control of oxygen to the brain through suffocation or strangulation with the objective of achieving the ultimate orgasm.

(from readers on the HarperCollins Authonomy website)
“Dark, decadent, sensual and full of tension.”
“Terrifying and edgy!”
“Very disturbing and graphic but it drew me in, evoking a morbid sense of curiosity.”
“This is one of the best thrillers I have read on this site so far and I have been here for over a year.”
“Amazing read, brazen beginning. You have a very sinister talent!”
“Brilliant build up and tension...your descriptive narrative brings the eerie images to life.”
“Best of luck with your creepy, horrible, revolting, FASCINATING mystery!”
“A tremendous thriller. Easily as compelling and readable as Deaver and Coban.”
“A bit gruesome but very scary.”
“Vivid and erotic-creepy, always a great hook for this type of book.”
“You do an excellent job in getting my attention from the first sentence and holding it from then on.”
“Terrific crime story!”

Hope you enjoy my hilarious romcoms, Dysfunctional Romance and Dysfunctional Romance 'The break-up!', my slightly more scandalous but equally hilarious 'spiritual' romcom/parody, Unholy Romance, my VERY scary and controversial thrillers, Asphyxia and Infallible, and my 'young adult' paranormal vampire extravaganza, Fiend Street!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hat Trick for Hudson 30 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thismay sseem such a departure for the author when you look at the front cover, but its written in the same witty way that I've come to expect from dysfunctional romance and the unholy romance author.

Lots of authors are formulaic and you know what's going to happen before it does (Dan Brown), but this author has a way of story telling and making each book fresh and even though the subject matter on sexual fetishes may not immediately appeal to some readers, I implore you to read if you want a good giggle! Hudson appears to be able to take sensitive subject matters and make them funny.

I loved the relationship of amateur sleuths Sam Greer and Damien Hand, they had me laughing out loud and the way that Hudson can write in a female voice is exceptional and I really want a "Hands off the merchandise" banner

Well done Mr Hudson, can't wait for Infallible and I have a slight smugness in that I can say, I've followed this author since the beginning and not just jumped on the band wagon.

If you love Irish wit and a good story, get your library stocked with asphyxia (and the back catalogue too)

4.0 out of 5 stars Crime with a sense of humour! 6 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this read very much, sex and crime together are a winner if it's well written as this is, had me gripped until the end, good characters, loved Robyn and the way her online life was described, anyone who has ever used a dating site will be laughing hard and nodding in agreement at this part of the book, absolutely bang on. A fast, funny sexy and shocking read, I'd happily recommend this book.
Torn between 4 and 5 star rating this, but it's getting 4 because I would have liked it to be longer, only took a couple of hours to read, and I would have loved more background, especially on the killer and how and why he became what he was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manic 21 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot in this book raced along at 100 miles an hour. This is the first book I read from this author & I was left panting for more. Jim Bannon the Irish Detective has a mullet which tells the reader that this is no ordinary crime novel. Gory, hilarious & heartwarming. The fans of this are demanding more in this series please.
