Police superintendent Percy Trethowan found London’s Soho as colourful and full of life as every—except for the four corpses in a seedy photography studio. Shot doing a layout for Bodies, a soft-porn “health and fitness” magazine, the photographer, his assistant, and two models had left a camera loaded with film but no clues. Then one victim’s obsession with pumping iron sent Trethowan into the erotic world of body-building, where an out-of-shape policeman would learn that bulding biceps were beautiful and the temptations to star in the buff in the bluest of movies could really be murder. ‘Barnard brings a fine satirical touch to his account of the iron-pumping cult and a nice sense of the absurd to his portrait of the editor of Bodies.’ New York Times Book Review ‘Stylish, witty, and engaging. Bodies is pure delight from first word to last.’ Dean R. Koontz
