The Rolling Stones were wrong. Even when you get what you want, you just might find that it's not at all what you need. June 1969, New York City. Private investigator Tim Coates is having his own personal summer of love. A gorgeous blonde hires him to find her missing mother, but as Tim digs deeper into their dark private world, he discovers he's not in a mystery. He's in a horror novel.Certain images come to my mind when I think of the 1960s: psychedelic hippies, social unrest, my childhood (oops, too much information), but rarely do I think of private detectives meeting femme fatales. That is what Speak to Our Desires seems to be about in the first pages, but Brenda Clough has taken this cliche to a whole new realm of the fantastic, one that is both enthralling and chilling... The ending is the biggest surprise and one that has kept me thinking back on this book again and again.
