DEAD FIT by Stephen Cook


Email this review


 Police officer Judy Best's weekend begins when she has to fight off lecherous acquaintance Duncan Stock after a party he's given--and ends when she hears that his crushed body has been discovered at the health club they share. And that's not even her worst weekend, because boorish Inspector Ron Slicer (Upperdown, 1985), who's in charge of the case, is no improvement on Duncan; instead of concentrating on the intrigues in Duncan's office, he arrests Judy's black boyfriend, Clinton Pink, for the murder, gets Judy taken off her beat after she identifies the culprits who broke into Duncan's locker at the club, and warns her off the persistent meddling that's clearly the only way this uninspired mystery is ever going to get solved. Good lowlife dialogue--though otherwise utterly inert.
