Review quote

Rock star Scott Silver has been murdered, but the prime suspect lies dead alongside him. Silver's killer broke into his mansion home on the south Devon coast, and all appearances point to the star's seductive widow Angel killing the intruder in self defence. But local journalist John Kelly encounters a very tangled web indeed when he attempts to penetrate the mystery. Before long, he is captivated by the dangerous Angel, and is in thrall to a sexual obsession that may destroy him. The considerable reputation that Bonner has built for her tautly written, no-nonsense crime novels will be consolidated by this nicely tuned piece in which the erotic temperature is considerably higher than in Bonner's previous books.
