The BookViral Review: Genre – LGBT Crime Fiction

Intense and compelling, Nightsticks and Negligees marks Lucinda Mack’s debut in the LGBT fiction genre and it proves to be a nail-biting page-turner from beginning to end. Taking a tried and tested formula allied to an original narrative style Mack delivers an enticing plot that keeps its intrigue throughout whilst maintaining a calculated balance between suspense and transparency which armchair detectives will certainly appreciate.

When writing in a genre as popular as this an author has to be careful not to retread the ground of previous bestsellers to come up with something original. Crime and police procedurals require a twisted logic whilst LGBT fiction is about character and Mack captures the requisite elements of both. Delivering an authentic air whilst almost absent dialogue between her characters really gets us into the mind of Lexi as her relationship with Katia goes from colleagues and first kiss to take on the weight of something far more significant.

With both characters imbued with the depth and characteristics of their roles, they are immediately engaging whilst the ever-present threat of danger pervading their lives is sure to keep readers on tenterhooks to the final pages.

A confident and assured debut which bodes well for future releases from Lucinda Mack, Nightsticks and Negligees is definitely recommended. Especially to fans of the LGBT and crime genres.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.
