2 out of 5 (2 ratings)


In the depths of her blue eyes, he glimpsed...murder.Cashed out from the NYPD after 24 years, Doak Miller operates as a private eye in steamy small-town Florida, doing jobs for the local police.

Like posing as a hit man and wearing a wire to incriminate a local wife who's looking to get rid of her husband.

But when he sees the wife, when he looks into her deep blue eyes...He falls - and falls hard.

Soon he's working with her, against his employer, plotting a devious plan that could get her free from her husband and put millions in her bank account.

But can they do it without landing in jail? And once he's kindled his taste for killing...will he be able to stop at one?

Too much sex and porn. Dissappointed.

Review by

Florida private investigator Doak Miller, a retired New York detective, is, at the request of the local sheriff, posing as a hit man. But when he meets the woman who wants to hire him to do away with her husband, he recognizes her as the girl of his dreams and concocts a twisted plan to knock off the husband and claim the girl for himself.This dark and perverse novel, while paying homage to pulp and film noir, is a complex character study of a man lacking any sense of morality, a devious man who is self-centered, selfish, and who ultimately proves himself capable of the unthinkable. Think “Double Indemnity” or “The Postman Always Rings Twice” with more than enough gratuitous erotica thrown in to set fire to the pages. The book, though populated with a slew of thoroughly unlikeable characters, offers a convoluted plot, psychological tension, and plenty of complications on the way to its twisted climax. And while the writing itself is absolutely first-rate, the multitudinous, explicit sex scenes are likely to be off-putting for many readers.
