A Perfect Obsession
2 journalers for this copy...
Leo Davies QC - charismatic, attractive to men and women alike and sexually ambiguous - inspires powerful feelings. Feelings that sometimes border on obsession. There's Sarah - manipulative, scheming but sexy; Anthony, Leo's ex-pupil and close friend; Gideon, a civil servant on the make; and sweet, smitten Camilla, a junior lawyer in his chambers - to name but a few. Plenty of opportunities, then, for a ruthless, silver-haired sophisticate to have his fun. But Leo is beginning to feel rather jaded by his hedonistic lifestyle. Perhaps what he really needs is sincerity, honest emotion - love, even? Could it be that the legendarily cool and controlling Leo will fall? And, if so, for whom...?
Part of a series of books, all set in Caper Court. I think this is book five, after The Pupil, Judicial Whispers, An Immoral Code and A Hallowed Place.
Yet another good read from the Caper Court series by Caro Fraser, although I wasn't *quite* so gripped with this one, for some reason! (It still gets eight out of ten though, so only a touch less gripping) Leo and Anthony have a fling at last, but I don't think the way Leo behaved afterwards is realistic, as he adored him before. Why would that stop so suddenly? I was also rather surprised by Leo's fondness for Camilla, although it seemed to make sense further on in the book. Perhaps this will be a relationship that lasts, although I doubt it! I hope Sarah gets her comeuppance as she's soooo spiteful. There's quite a cliffhanger at the end of the book, and although I have the next book I'm unable to start it as I have a bookring book I need to get started on! I can't wait to read 'A Calculating Heart' to find out what happens next. Always a sign of a good book .....

An enjoyable read though it didn't especially seem to go anyway, it was a nice journey not getting there!
Left outside a lecture theatre in the Roger Stevens building at Leeds University after I finished it during the ALT-C conference today. Hopefully a learning technologist will like the Web 2.0 aspects of reading Bookcrossing can bring
