Quinn has been secretly suffeing from bizarre blackouts for a few hours at a time, the most recent during the times when Lulu was killed. As the story progresses more bodies are found and all tie in with the times of the blackouts. One of the few to support Quinn is Lulu's cousin but as more bodies are discovered even she has fight off the doubts.
Parts of this books are well written but I did find a lot of the plot to be predictable, I probably would not recommend you buy a new copy but i if you can borrow or pick up a used copy like I did its not a bad read.
The actual scene of murder and crime solving were ok but I found some of the sex scenes to be a little dull and did not add much to the story other than to serve as background knowlede to Quinn.
