Publisher's Weekly Review

Influential real estate developer Jonathan Gaetan is murdered. Was the killer Mary, his wife? Nut case Phil Jameson? Mary and Phil in collusion? Deposed detective Teddy Camel makes a comeback and sets the record straight in this ``violent, psychologically acute, grossly logical thriller, with an amusing epilogue,'' said PW . (Aug.)

Library Journal Review

Certainly not for the squeamish, this taut, gripping, and bloody thriller details the mad ravings of a warped personality. After seven years in prison, Philip confronts someone from his past, tortures her wealthy husband, and demands money. The following day, when the woman reports her husband's gory ``suicide,'' policeman Theodore Camel, astute but just marking time, suspects something more. As the plot alternates between the ex-con's depraved psychosexual fantasies and Camel's perserverance, tension takes hold, shaking the reader with the possible reality of it all. Scary.
