Saz is ok, but the story lacked reality. Some things seemed to happen because the story had to move along. The end was no surpise really.

Stella Duffy’s excellent London based private detective series starring Saz Martin returns in this superb sequel that takes in love and sex, San Francisco cults, a decades old cold case, a charming serial killer and lots of interesting characters making alternative lifestyle choices.

It reads easy and Duffy weaves an intriguing web in similar style to the first entry, tipping her hand to the reader with back story of the crimes which serves to heighten the tension as we ride along with Saz in to

I don't as a practice read detective genre novels. This one got my attention by being published by Serpent's Tail, with an English lesbian private eye and being about a murderous self-help cult that started in San Francisco (all things that are separately relevant to my interests.) It was interesting but kind of predictable for my Criminal Minds-honed taste.

Enjoyed the writing, but was bored a lot.

I'm quite disappointed that I didn't like it more. Can't quite put a finger on the why of the boredom. The mystery wasn't really one, the Process didn't interest me, the climax to me just meant good riddance, this is over.

Picked this up by chance a while ago, haven't given up on this author yet.

This is a bizarre and intriguing novel about a private detective who becomes a pawn in a woman's revenge fantasy. The main character makes the story compelling, but the story itself has an inevitable conclusion that sometimes made it hard for me to sustain my interest. Overall, though, I really enjoyed the novel and will seek out more books by Stella Duffy.

This was my first exposure to Saz Martin and it got me hooked -- on the strength of this book I went and hunted down the others in the series. This was what probably got me reading crime novels again.
Interessante.... qualche sbavatura alla fine... ma devo essere io, non e' la prima volta....
Una cosa certa. E' un'autrice che mi piacerebbe leggere in versione originale!!!
