Product description

Review

'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
