Tainted Love – T. S. Hunter

Online Blanket Fort Review

Tainted Love is the first novel in T. S. Hunter’s Soho Noir series. It’s only 105 pages long so it’s just a wee tiddler of a book, perfect for a quick read when you want to switch off for an hour or two.

I bought this as I’d been seeing the series all over Twitter and couldn’t stand missing out. Serious FOMO.

I don’t have a bad word to say about Tainted Love. Not one.

It’s short and sweet, not a word is wasted. For such a short book and the first in the series the story just gets going straight away with background being picked up as you go. I loved it and finished it over a couple of hours.

The characters are engaging and I’m already quite fond of them: Joe – the fish out of water in the big bad city of London getting a taste of the gay- scene for the first time; and Russell the ex-policeman forced from his job for being gay. Joe and Russell aren’t your usual duo but they’re perfect together.

The remaining Soho Noir books are now firmly on my to-buy list. Another smasher from Red Dog Press.

Note: The books are classed as ‘Cosy Crime’, never heard that term but I love it!
