Netherhall Gardens

by

First visit to Netherhall Gardens? Let me introduce you to some of the neighbours. Meet handsome trainee accountant Mark… who’s friends with beautiful petite Stella… whose sister Iris can’t abide Stella's lawyer boyfriend Hugh… who doesn’t at all like the sound of Mark… who discovers his sexuality with leather-loving policeman Steve... whose ex-boyfriend Glen is a security guard with a closely guarded secret that, once unleashed, unravels a very tangled web among the marijuana-fuelled denizens of leafy Hampstead.

And meet New Yorker Laura who teaches playboy Patrick to play the flute and runs an illegal escort agency on the side… which sends pot-head Pierre to meet the kinky German couple who have a deadly compulsion that has near fatal consequences for Mark.

Oh and not forgetting the indomitable Morag, Stella and Iris's mother, who descends on them all with a lottery win… though just how much is a mystery.

And you really must meet Fanny Rosenberg, Laura's tiresome neighbour, who doesn’t at all approve of all the funny goings on.

Finally, feel the panic as London’s gay community is gripped by a series of bizarre sexual murders.

Come on in, you know you’ll love them… they’re right up your street… in more ways than one!

Sexually explicit

Sex, drugs and kinky murder are always a powerful mix and Carl Patrick sprinkles sex of every persuasion throughout the fast-moving plot. Part sexy rom-com romp, part homage to Tales of the City, these tales of numerous characters take place across London, from dinner parties to dungeons. For a debut novel this is remarkably assured, great fun to read and we’re already waiting for the sequel. The Pink Paper **** (4 stars)
