Robert Barnard's stunning new novel of suspense once more displays his "delightful blend of witty social satire and genuine mystery," his "great skill," and his "deftly drawn characters."

Police superintendent Perry Trethowan investigates a spectacular murder in London's SoHo district. Perry knows SoHo -- its restaurants, theaters, and strip joints -- from his vice squad days, nd it's as colorful and exotic and full of life as ever. Full of life, except of course for the four murdered people.

Who would want to kill nice-guy Bob Cordle? Who would want to kill Bob's young assistant, and two beautiful models? Bob is, or was, a photographer for Bodies magazine, a soft-porn periodical, so soft that it's almost marshmellow. Bob's photos were mostly of beautiful, healthy-looking bodies, often photographed outdoors, in natural settings. No obscenity, not for Bob and not for Bodies.

Was Bob involved in something after hours? That's the question Perry must ask when he's called in to probe the bloody massacre. Who was the principal victim? Did the others die because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time?

With help from a young body-builder named Charlie -- reminiscent of Spenser's Hawk -- Perry traces the backgrounds of his multiple corpses, seeking the key to the most baffling case of his career.

Fast-moving and poignant, Bodies takes the reader into the exciting worlds of professional body-building and modeling. Robert Barnard, one of the best suspense authors of our day, reveals a subculture that is the perfect setting for this compellingly readable novel. Amusing, shocking, riveting, Bodies is the best yet from a superbly talented writer.
