What a delight! One of the great pleasures of this book is the way the author develops clearly identifiable and differentiated voices for the three women; another is the way she translates classic elements of film noir into a lesbian love triangle, maintaining a sense of obsessive love between damaged individuals and combining that with a light, deft touch for dialogue. The author successfully creates a sense of inevitability while maintaining suspense even as Bravura, Lena and Susie move inexorably towards their final destinies.

Jill Dearman has written a brilliant novel! I'm a fan of great noir films like 'Double Indemnity' and 'Mildred Pierce' and this harkens back to them and the books they were based on. If you love those old movies you'll love this novel too. Fun, fast, outlandish and sly, grab your popcorn, turn on the night light, and enjoy a true page-turner.
