The Case Of The Missing Boyfriend
, by Nick Alexander (UK link
C.C. is nearly forty and other than her name (which she hates so much she canít bring herself to use it) everything about her life appears to be wonderful: she has a high powered job in advertising, a great flat in Primrose Hill, and a wild bunch of friends to spend her weekends with. And yet she feels like the Titanic Ė slowly, inexorably, and against all expectation, sinking.
For despite her indisputable success, C.C. would rather be shovelling shit on a farm than selling it to the masses Ė would rather be snuggling on the sofa with The Missing Boyfriend than playing star fag-hag in Londonís latest coke-spots.
But opportunities to find The Missing Boyfriend are rarer than an original metaphor, and CCís body-clock is ticking so loudly that at times she can barely hear her mother wittering on about her own Moroccan boyfriend.
Could her best friend be right? Could her past really be preventing her from moving on? And if she unlocks that particular box, will the horrors within simply drift away and leave her free? Or will they sink her?
If she can shake off the past and learn to trust again, will she stop attracting freaks and find The Missing Boyfriend? Or will she just end up tethered and gagged at the bottom of the stairs?
A Death In Beverly Hills
, by David Grace (UK link
When the pregnant wife and three year old step-daughter of fading movie star, Tom Travis, dis-appeared, a massive, fruitless, search was launched. Three months later, the body of Travisís wife was discovered in a shallow grave only a few miles from where Tom had been riding his dune buggy on the day she vanished. Of the three year old little girl, Sarah, no trace was found.
Arrested and placed on trial for capital murder, Tom Travis is now only a days away from an almost certain guilty verdict. Desperate to find some way out, his lawyer hires suspended Ex-Deputy D.A., Steve Janson, to review all the files and find some over-looked clue that might keep Travis off death row.
Janson, whose own wife had been murdered almost two years before, accepts the assignment, not to help Travis, but in the faint hope of finding Sarah still alive. Jansonís investigation leads him on a twisted path from Travisís mistress to her drug-dealing brother to the writer and producer of his last movie and on across the landscape of Southern California until, eventually, Janson begins to wonder if Travis might really be innocent after all.

Stefanie is not just in love, she is alight.
She has met Gary and they have fused like a rocket headed for the farthest reaches of the galaxy, exploding as they go.
Wow! It is perfect. It is ecstasy. It has no limits. What could possibly go wrong?
Gary's friends are not so keen on Stefanie as Gary is. They think she doesn't appreciate him. They think he could do better.
And Gary is beginning to agree.
It is not the way Stefanie sees things Ė not at all Ė but it is the story she is going to have to deal with. Deal with, or get out.
And it could be so good.
