By Nadine Nightingale


So it’s not often I find myself sitting down to read books about hot witches and hot hunters and now I ask WHY NOT?  I couldn’t read this book fast enough. It was as if the pages turned themselves. I’ve just surfaced from a four hour session on the sofa, not sleeping, but absorbed in the adventure.  And the undercurrent of sexual desire is so good, it’s like an episode of Moonlighting, where you really want them to, but you know it might change the dynamic.

Nadine Nightingale is on fire. This is non-stop boom which can’t be left waiting for next read o’clock, for the dialogue is feisty and amusing and characters so assured. And the author’s choice of images super up-to-date, with ‘Coco Austin’s’ posterior providing excellent google search fodder.

In terms of the story, it’s like a great action, slightly scary, detective thriller, which you could easily see HBO picking up on and making a mint from. You’re not left thinking thank goodness that’s over, rather I wish I had the box-set to gorge on.

And did I mention there’s something very steaming in the telling, a distinctive touch of raunch, which when middle-aged is always a pleasant surprise. When you meet Bay on page 37 you’ll know what I’m talking about.

If there is anything I could beg of Ms Nightingale is bring on Book Two.
