- Customer Reviews:
'As elegant and witty as it is disturbing.' 'Lovely, sparse, elegant writing, highly original plot and ever- building tension make this book irresistible.There's sex and drugs and rock-and-roll, a whiff of true evil and a scream-out loud finale. Wow!'― Australian Women's Weekly
'Accomplished and gloriously black comedy'-- Allan Guthrie
'Thinking woman's noir'― The Daily Telegraph

I really enjoyed it, although I did wince a lot as I read it. I've read most of Helen Fitzgerald's books and enjoyed all of them.
Not for the faint hearted though!
