Noel is soon totally immersed in his assignment and gay life; but in order not to blow his cover how far will he need to go prove that he is gay? How far can he trust his police boss? How will he cope when he finds himself strangely attracted to his supposed target Mr X with his reputation for sadistic M/M preferences, and equally attracted to Mr X's beautiful and aloof female lover and model?
Noel's world is turned upside down as he is drawn deeper and deeper into a word of gay sex and drugs, as he comes to learn things about himself he never knew. The deeper he gets the less sure he is of who he can trust, and the less sure he is of who is in control.
This all makes for a thrilling suspenseful adventure, fast paced and so well written. A fascinating mystery and game of psychology that grips the reader throughout, and which is made all the more compelling with its cast of appealing characters and ruthless villains. Highly recommended.
One of our members thought that it was a typical detective story in that nothing important happens between the finding of a corpse and the dénouement, the discovery of `whodunit' at the end. Everything in between is `a plot disaster'. Another, however, thought it was a clever use of the detective genre to introduce the gay underworld at a time when most people hardly knew that it existed and to chart a voyage of self-knowledge which passes through choppy waters. (Though that would have been better portrayed had the book been written in the first person) It doesn't seem to take itself too seriously but then, suddenly, it does. Is the cook who is into martial arts meant to reflect the author's sense of humour?
`A touching period piece,' said one member of our group, `A lot better than some of the junk/trash we sometimes read.'
`Not hard work,' said another, `a ripping read. Lots of tension'
As one of our members said, "Despite being put off by the personality of the author as revealed in the Preface, I was surprised that I loved the book and perhaps for the following reasons:
1. Its pace seemed to match that of the time...i.e. speed and cocaine fuelled
2. The posh sluttiness of it all and how superficial it was (J G Ballard would have liked the empty decadence)

written ages ago .. but to this day one of the best ... and worth re-reading it ..
houseguests are never allowed to borrow it .. this book will never leave my library...
