PUBLISHERS BLURB 

LOOSE LIPS COST LIVES.

It’s 1986, and Adam Cave, lead singer of sensational pop group Loose Lips, is struggling to stay in the closet, especially as his group is going through a messy split, and media speculation about the reasons behind it are rife.

Joe Stone is assigned to Adam as a runner for the behind-the-scenes, warts and all expose of the recording of the bands last album, and an unlikely friendship begins to form.

But when Adam’s manager, Jack Eddy, is found dead in Adam’s hotel room, in what looks like a sex game gone wrong, Joe turns to his flatmate, Russell, to help him clear the pop star’s name, and keep his secret.

Russell, meanwhile, has a secret of his own. He’s just been for a test, the results of which may change his life forever.

MY REVIEW 

#3 In The Soho Noir series….Don’t you just love the cover?

Set in Soho, London in 1986, a time of crimped hair, Marathon bars and the Bangles….

Joe has said goodbye to his boyfriend, the gorgeous Luc, because he didn’t want to settle down yet…he’s not the ‘pop loving club-bunny’ that Luc called him but neither is he ready for pipe and slippers, so they part.

Joe is a runner now, working for PJ as he is working on an expose of life in the band, Loose Lips….Adam Cave, the lead singer and he has a secret….he’s gay..his manager Jack feels it should be kept from Adam’s adoring teenage girl fans…his band mates, the twins think the same…

But then Jack is found dead, Adam is arrested for murder…..and Joe and Russell begin the investigation….will they find the truth?

A wonderful, cosy crime mystery all set in the 80’s, with its music, fashion, homophobia and the affect AIDS had on so many people…brilliant characters and so atmospheric……I can’t wait to read more of Joe, Russell and the fabulous Patty.

Thank you to RedDog Press for a copy of the ebook. This is my honest and unbiased review.
