Tainted Love by T.S. Hunter Blog Tour


SOME RELATIONSHIPS ARE JUST MURDER

It’s 1985, and Joe Stone is excited to be joining his old school friend, and lifelong crush, Chris, for a long weekend in London’s Soho—home to a vibrant, developing gay scene, and a million miles from the small town Joe and Chris grew up in.

But when Chris is brutally murdered, the police just write his death off as another rent boy, fallen foul of a bad hook up. Joe realises that his best friend was killed deliberately, and joins forces with former police detective, Russell Dixon—Chris’s flatmate—to find out why.

Spiralling debt, illicit sex, blackmail, spurned lovers and hard-nosed gangsters all play their part, but who among the celebrities, fashionistas, drag queens, ex-lovers and so-called friends is Chris’s killer?

A noirish whodunit set in 1980s London, with all the big hair, electro-pop, shoulder pads, police discrimination and lethal killers that the era had to offer.

Tainted Love is the first book in the Soho Noir series of cozy crime novellas.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is a short story which packs a lot of punch into not all that many pages! I am really looking forward to future installments.

The story is set in the mid-80s and is placed perfectly in the setting. It captures the seedy, loud, slightly dangerous, and fearful of AIDS environment. It is frightening how the police treat a serious crime, but sadly not surprising – but the unlikely duo of Joe and Russell do the legwork themselves to find out what happened to their friend Chris. It is a crazy, but sadly believable answer, which is revealed in a clever way.

I had to read this book to find out how the contents of the blurb could fit into 85 pages. Well, it is done with style, and covers all bases, so my compliments, T.S. Hunter!



Claiming to be only half-Welsh, T.S. Hunter lived in South Wales for much of his latter teens, moving to London as soon as confidence and finances allowed. He never looked back.

He has variously been a teacher, a cocktail waiter, a podium dancer and a removal man, but his passion for writing has been the only constant.

He's a confident and engaging speaker and guest, who is as passionate about writing and storytelling as he is about promoting mainstream LGBT fiction.

He now lives with his husband in the country, and is active on social media.
