Jayda Thomasz is a sassy homicide detective who never lets her emotions get in the way of a case. So when a serial killer re-emerges after 25 years, the last thing she expects is to catch herself fantasising over the hot, smooth-talking stranger who crosses the path of her investigation.

Seth Friedin is a reporter chasing the story that'll make his career. When he enters the world of swinging for research, he never imagines he'll be distracted by a hard-talking female detective whose kiss plagues his mind long after she's gone.

Past experience has shown Jayda that reporters are ruthless and unscrupulous. But when the murders get personal, will she make a deal with the devil to catch the killer? How far will she and Seth have to go? And do you ever really know who you can trust?

Evocative of noir cinema, Lethal Love episode 5 leaves us with the mother of all cliffhangers when the sensual haze Jayda and Seth find themselves in dissipates in the wake of the choking claustrophobia of a killer closing in. There are yet more revelations of a repressed childhood and sins of the previous generation coming to light as the incongruous bond between detective and reporter strengthens into something more that both can’t quite yet name. I loved the building suspense and the tightening noose of the game where there’s only one winner, and ultimately, how the strings so deftly woven by Michelle Somer are pulled taut to breaking point.
