About the Author

Jonathan Gash is married with three daughters and four grandchildren and lists his hobbies as antiques and his family. He is best known for his Lovejoy novels, which were adapted into the hugely successful BBC1 series, starring lan McShane.


The third in Gash's series featuring English physician Claire Burtonall and Bonn, the male prostitute (or "goer") whom she first came to know in Different Women Dancing, this entry has less appeal than the first. Gash spends less time in Claire's life and more in Bonn's world, telling more about the parlance and reality of prostitution and crime than most listeners will want to know. Richard Greenwood's narration is exquisite, with seamless switches among dialects, genders, and physical ailments (one character's emphysema) that enable one to feel that the characters are in the room, and the technical aspects of the production cannot be faulted. Unfortunately, with the exception of Bonn, who somehow usually ends up sympathetic if emotionally unknowable, and Claire, who in the end seems impossibly nave in her faith that she can have a real relationship with Bonn (who is her lover for pay), most of the characters are unlikable. Consequently, the story of the clash between the underworld and the world of politics is not as involving as it should be and will probably leave the listener wondering if spending this much time with these characters is worthwhile. Recommended only where this series is popular. Melody A. Moxley, Rowan P.L., Salisbury, NC Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
