Freak Show by Patti Larsen – Review


Blurb:

When transsexual starlet Aisling is murdered, Detective Geraldine Meyers is assigned the case. With help from medical examiner Dr. Rachel Hunter, Gerri realizes this is no ordinary killing. While she might not want to call in over-eager anthropologist Dr. Kinsey DanAllart, the detective is forced to trust her friend’s expertise in symbology, even though doing so means admitting “weird” things might be happening in Silver City. As the three friends unravel the mystery of the dancer’s death, one thing is made absolutely apparent–something isn’t right in their new hometown. And someone is doing everything they can to make sure the truth doesn’t come out.

In Silver City, sometimes friendship can be murder.

My Review:

First up, I hope Jackson gets shot in the face, and soon.

Now, this is a story that brings thought to mind. From working out who the killer was (didn’t see it coming), to the idea of six races of paranormals (I think I know what the unrevealed four are), to a cri-fi story shielding the truth of a paranormal romp. Well-written and covered in enough racism (as in, of paranormal races), sexism, homophobia and self-denial that I wonder why every character hasn’t been slogged in the face at least once.

Definitely a story to read, one that will keep you entertained, for a few hours at least.

4.5/5
