Bodies

(1986)
(The fourth book in the Perry Trethowan series)
A novel by

 
 
Publisher's Weekly
In the Soho studio of Bodies magazine (porn so soft it's ''practically marshmallow'') are found four corpses: a photographer, his assistant, an actress-student and a young bodybuilder. Perry Trethowan of London's C.I.D. can't discern a motive for the murders but a few hints point toward the bodybuilder's background. The suave Trethowan finds himself involved in the seedy, naively narcissistic world of compet-itive body-building. Using a black gym-manager as an undercover decoy, Trethowan penetrates a more sinister, hardcore porno operation that specializes in teenagers. Fans of Barnard (Political Suicide, Out of the Blackout may be disappointed that the case's solution is rather strained and a bit unlikely, but the lively characters and colorful background are nicely done. Narrator Trethowan is, once again, a charming guide.
