Set in a future where Kilgarney in Ireland is a Mediterranean style holiday destination for those fleeing the brutal, global warming induced summer heat across Europe, ‘Sixty Positions with Pleasure’ by Sahlan Diver spans genres, offering mystery, relationships and political drama. The story flowed well, with humour and comic characters throughout to give this book a light-hearted feel despite a murder mystery being at its heart. IT worker Charlie Gibbs finds himself co-opted into a police investigation when his boss is killed under mysterious circumstances. Charlie’s experience working in The Netherlands and fluent Dutch seems to make him indispensable to a lot of key characters, and he may be able to uncover what’s going on. Running alongside this mystery narrative is one that is slightly more risqué. Replacing Charlie’s now deceased boss is a woman who has an interesting hobby, looking to rewrite the Karma Sutra for mature women and needs Charlie for the practical research for her book. Although these scenes are detailed throughout the book, the couple's escapades aren’t too graphic and sometimes lead to the odd humorous close call. I found that the writing flowed well and I found all of the characters interesting and entertaining. This book is set in the future and references the increasing impacts on climate change and the more commonplace introduction of robots, but other than that seems to remain fairly recognisable. I’m not sure I understood the connection between the mystery and the almost farcical political sub plot of the Gallagher cousins, although it provided an interesting change of pace on occasion. ‘Sixty Positions with Pleasure’ is an entertaining, satirical story, with mystery, intrigue and plenty of steam. Not a story for anyone looking for a darker, more serious crime fiction, nor those who dislike bedroom scenes, but an entertaining story for anyone looking for something a bit quirky and different.
