5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be kinky to enjoy this. (Though it helps.), 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Antoniou credits Sharon McCrumb's "Bimbos of the Death Sun" for showing her "that mysteries could be funny." She learnt more than that: if you know the former work you'll immediately recognise the affectionate portrayal of the organised chaos of a convention, the things that come out when an obnoxious guest of honour shows up dead, and the reveal using inside knowledge of the subculture. But for all the tribute touches, this is an Antoniou book with the wisdom and understanding of the creator of the "Marketplace," having way more fun than she ever could in the world of the Marketplace.

And just as you don't need to be a sci-fi fan to enjoy McCrumb's whodunnit, you don't need to use so much as fluffy handcuffs in your sex life to appreciate this romp through the wonderful world of the weird. The characters are rounded and believable, the details are well set out without ever feeling expository, and the puzzle is satisfyingly constructed round both character and materials. I recommend it to any mystery fan looking for a new and interesting setting. If you already know the author, of course, her name is recommendation enough.

Laura Antoniou is branching out! After decades of writing some of the best story based erotica on the market (cf. the fantastic Marketplace series)she takes on the Murder mystery with aplomb! Set in the world of a BDSM/Leather event, things get crazy when the previous title holder is found murdered. This book is a great read-pacy,hilarious, sexy and wise. In the middle of a great murder mystery, Laura manages to do what she does so well-provide beautifully wry insights into the wonders of human nature and create characters that you hope are going to turn up in her next fabulous book. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully sharp, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A witty and very keenly observed view of the Fetish/ kinky scene by one of the premiere writers of the genre. Be warned, this is NOT at all like her marketplace books but a hugely fun poke at all the characters and types one would find at a USA kink convention. When someone is murdered at the beginning of the weekend it's down to lesbian detective Rebecca Feldblum to solve the case before everyone returns home at the end of the convention.
This book would probably be enjoyed most by those who have a working knowledge of the BDSM scene or who like an unusual murder mystery.
