PUBLISHERS BLURB

A partner in a successful law firm in the seaside town of Hastings dies when his penchant for erotic auto-asphyxiation apparently goes too far.

The head of the Crown Prosecution Service in E Sussex is photographed drunk and undressed at a well-known dogging location.

A corporate lawyer in a city finance company is found drugged and drowned in his employer s swimming pool. What is the connection between these bizarre incidents and have they been deliberately set up?

Dr Jo Hughes is convinced that there is a connection, even if the police do not agree. As she searches for the reason behind the deaths and attacks, she begins to realise that there will be more, and that Detective Inspector Steve Miller may well be the next victim.

MY REVIEW

This is #3 in the Dr Jocasta Hughes series, but I found it easy to read as a stand-alone.

Jo is a GP in Hastings, but also works as a Forensic Physician for the police. She is called to a sudden death and finds the man dead as the result of auto-erotic asphyxiation……

There are soon other instances of being caught in embarrassing situations and sudden deaths…..all seemingly related to their sexual proclivities…….Jo suggests there is more to these events and the investigations begin….is someone setting them up ?

Jo is a really likeable, relatable character, busy in her life as a GP, has a wild friend in Kate, and a love interest in Dr Billy Iqbal…..( she also rather fancies the married DI Steve Miller)…..

This is a very engaging thriller with a nice twist. A nice mix of crime thriller and life as a GP……thoroughly entertaining.
