Who is brutally murdering the male residents of the Hourglass Heights apartment complex? At first glance, it would appear that their spouses are the killers, but Detective Marcia Tanaka believes that a serial killer is responsible. Through the course of her investigation, Detective Tanaka is pulled into a world of Japanese folklore and the supernatural as she explores the darker side of relationships, sex and psyche. She must learn to defeat her own personal demons before she can defeat one that is far more sinister. People's Book Prize Award nominee. (Autumn 2014)

Male residents of Hourglass Heights Apartment Complex are being brutally and mercilessly murdered. At first it's believed their spouses are the killers, but Detective Marcia Tanaka believes a serial killer is responsible. As she starts to investigate, she is soon pulled into a world of Japanese folklore and the supernatural. I love serial killer books that are gritty, dark, disturbing and really get under your skin and although this had a fair amount of erotica which I don't like, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and found it quite addictive. The graphic murders are very, very gory with lots of blood and guts and certainly not for the faint hearted, but they do play a huge part in the plot and therefore quite necessary. The main character Detective Marcia Tanaka is a very intricate and troubled person following the murder of her father fifteen years ago - for which she blames herself. The storyline does leave you intrigued as to what happened to her dad and you soon find out how it fits in with the murders of the males at Hourglass Heights. There's a interesting supernatural theme to this book which adds to the entertaining storyline and I was compelled enough to want to read this book in one day. To give credit to the author Ian David Noakes this is a definite 5 star book, but due to the amount of erotica which is just not my thing I can only award 4 stars. However, if erotica, the supernatural and grizzly murders are all your chosen genre then you should love this book and I highly recommend "Hourglass Heights" to you. 4 stars.
