    1. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.The mystery was good and kept me guessing, with no obvious suspects, and it had a very satisfying end.Stan is a busy hairdresser pandering to the whims of his clients on a daily basis but he is good at what he does.

    5. I really wanted to enjoy this book and it is enjoyable as a piece of fluff reading as long as you can completely suspend your sense of disbelief. Stan (aka Vannos, Stani, Stanley) is a hairdresser who is trained as a psychologist. One of his obnoxious customers is at the shop and a man comes to meet with him there. Stan falls head over heels right away for the man after interacting for just a few minutes with him and sets a coffee date for that evening. When he shows at his customer's home, he f [...]
