** spoiler alert ** I am listening to this in the audio format. (my traveling book) So far Lavinia and Tobias are teaming up to catch a blackmailer, and bring an end to his criminal gang. The two have discovered that they both are targets.

Lavinia and Tobias are investigating an erotic wax museum. The female figures appear to resemble prostitutes that have gone missing. The male figure interacting in different sexual acts with the various female figures appears to be made from the same model. Who is he?

The story progresses as Lavinia and Tobias discover a mutual passion for each other. After a suspect turns up dead, his wife (Constantine) is revealed as the murderer. She killed the women who her husband Neville had previously entertained as his mistresses. Now believing that he might leave her to be with the widow of the 'Blue Gang,' assuming power as head criminal mastermind, she murders him. She is on the verge of killing Lavinia who has discovered her crimes when Tobias shows up and she is subdued. In the end Constantine is committed to an asylum for the insane. Lavinia and Tobias will continue to work as investigators, after dicovering they enjoy their partnership. It is mentioned in the end that although the job is frustrating, there is a remedy for the frustraton. Although temporary the remedy can be applied as often as needed. (love is the drug) *** several erotic scenes throughout involving communion of the two ... well-written ... sensual & satifying
