The Monkey's Mask - Dorothy Porter
I couldn't resist a book hyped as 'an erotic muder mystery' - in verse. Really? I've certainly never read one of those before.
My library had a copy, so I got it and read it in two days. I probably could have read it in one if I had started it earlier in the day.
It is in verse. There is a murder. It is a mystery. The investigator is a lesbian who falls in love with a the murdered girl's poetry professor, who has a boyfriend. I didn't think it was very erotic.
Normally, I abhor fiction with a gimmick. But this one didn't bother me at all. I can't say that I recommend it, but for novelty's sake, you might be interested. It seems to be one of a kind.
