      Icarus was written by Russell Andrews (published by Pocket Books in 2002)

      I almost didn’t want to continue with this book the beginning was boring - about Jack and Caroline Keller; their courtship, marriage, business venture and success. The tempo only started picking up when Kid Demeter re-entered Jack’s life; and then it fizzled out with Kid’s death!

      As a child, Jack had seen his mother thrown off from a high rise building to her death. He later married Caroline and


      was successful into starting their restaurant business.

      Then Caroline was murdered, and Jack badly injured. Kid Demeter, who had disappeared from Jack’s life, re-appeared soon after Caroline’s death, trying to nurse Jack back to health, as he was a physical therapist.

      Kid had an interesting vocation, though. He called them his team - a group of ladies whom he identified by specific names - and took care of their sexual and emotional needs.

      Then Kid jump off the roof of his ...


      • apartment. Not believing it a suicide, Jack investigated Kid’s life; and had the shock of his life when he discovered secrets in Caroline’s life, her affair with Kid and other events of jealousy that led to their deaths.

        And now the killer was targeting Jack. I was really disappointed when Kid died, the story died as well.

        The only part I found worth reading was about Kid’s women. I have no qualms about the author’s descriptions and character building

        he was good; however the story is just far-fetched.

        I had lots of questions. Jack was rich why did he have to go sleuthing alone, getting himself injured or in trouble with the unsympathetic police? One of Kid’s women who didn’t die, disappeared and then reappeared, wanting to make love with Jack.

        And it seemed too easy to kill the head of the mob families in his house. Unbelievable! If I want fairy tales, I would read Grimms!
