This is a superbly written mystery thriller whose descriptions of erotic activity are very much ‘no holds barred’. The narrator, whose sexual prowess conquers all the women he encounters, sets off in pursuit of a legendary beauty who has been abducted and kept prisoner in North Africa. As intrepid as you would wish, he braves all possible hazards in order to find and rescue the damsel. As you would expect she is ultimately suitably grateful, giving of herself fully at the successful conclusion of the book. A classic, which has appeared in several editions including this one from Masquerade in 1990, in which Trocchi remains anonymous, in character with a large fraction of this erotic genre. ( )

This is Headline's reprint of 'The Carnal Days of Helen Seferis', usually ascribed to Alexander Trocchi. It is an erotic thriller, beautifully written by a master of the erotic genre, and it describes the quest of a young private investigator for a young woman, Helen Seferis, who has gone missing in North Africa. She has left a notebook which indicates her capture by Arab tribesmen, and her subsequent treatment as a whore. Anthony Harvest is paid to locate and rescue Helen, which he does by following a trail of unsavoury and corrupt male characters and subjecting them to the violence they would prefer to exert on him. At every turn he encounters many gorgeous young women, and without exception he engages these in well-described erotic engagements. His investigatory technique would be the envy of any investigator, and he is no slouch when it comes to exercising his loins between the women's thighs. There is something of an air of the pot-boiler here, although the books ability to arouse adequately compensates for this. ( )
