9780140282832: Eating Chinese Food Naked

Crown Prosecutor Helen West is doubly frustrated. Her lover, Geoffrey Bailey, is off to a police education course, with weekend visits only a slight possibility. And she has just failed for the fifth time to convict a menacing little man called Logo. Brought before the magistrate for trying to lure young girls to the cemetery, Logo blames all his troubles on the daughter who ran away four years before. If she returned, he could stop chasing the others.

Until Logo misbehaves again and Geoffrey returns, Helen can just stew. Or she can strike up an unlikely friendship with Rose, a smart office clerk who has slept with most of the young constables in the area. Tart-tongued Rose lets down her guard for Helen. But neither one of them is prepared for the terror just around the corner in Rose's life--.

Product Description:

A novel set against an underworld of violence and fear, and featuring Crown Prosecutor Helen West and senior policeman Geoffrey Bailey, whose long-running relationship has become as brittle as Helen's cracked china. Frances Fyfield won the Silver Dagger Award for "Deep Sleep".

From the Back Cover:

Crown Prosecutor Helen West conldn't make up her mind about Mr Logo. Was he a threat to society or simply a poor soul with nothing left to lose? That he was seedy, repellent and slightly sinister she knew only too well. She was also frustrated by his continual ability to avoid conviction for a succession of petty but deliberate crimes.

Still smarting from Logo's most recent acquittal, Helen has more pressing concerns. Professionally she must contend with the archaic office building, its politics and its romance and also the embarrassing insubordinataion of Rose Darvey, whose teenage cynicism and promiscuity are the disguise of a terrified child. Helen must also face the fact of the brittle nature of her long-term relationship with senior policeman Geoffrey Bailey.

But she barely has time to cross-examine her feelings before she is swept up by the lives of others, pulled to the centre of a maze of violence and fear where Logo and his grubby world somehow divide and rule.

One more West and Bailey are brought together to fight their own personal demons. Only this time, they are fighting for survival too.
