Disquieting and sometimes disturbing influences permeate the story, since to a greater or lesser degree, the thoughts, words and actions of just about everyone in it are influenced by the sex-drive. Even the murder weapon is a parody of Cupid's dart.
Initially, it was distracting to have Eros & Aphrodite interfering with the development of the mystery, then as the story unfolded, the mystery started getting in the way of Eros & Aphrodite, but eventually, everything slotted into its rightful place and made sense.
All the right ingredients are present - the intense love/hate emotions aroused by world-famous personalities, the highly charged attraction of opposites, the essentially down-to-earth police procedures required when dealing with a murder enquiry. As always, HRFK's characters are depicted with unerring accuracy, especially when the Hard Detective struggles to remain true to her name.
But as in all traditional detective stories, the murderer is eventually tracked down. There was even a moment near the end when the awful suspicion dawned that maybe someone very close to the Hard Detective might, just might be the killer.....but read it and find out for yourself.
If you expect a straightforward detective tale you will be disappointed. If you want something in which the layers of the story are gradually stripped away to reveal the final inescapable truths concealed at its heart, then this is for you.
Another tour de force for this accomplished author and most definitely a MUST READ.
I struggled to get into it and found it a little repetitive.
I will give the next one a try. And hopefully it will be a little better.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in return for my honest opinion.

This book must have been self published. This very amateur book would never have got past any type of editor. I read to the end in the hope it would improve, it didn't.Published 10 months ago by Steven Brierley
bit confusing, the solving of a murder was all a bit hit and missed overshadowed by a badly written romancePublished 11 months ago by Mr Stephen Ashley Stone
