Jasmine Frame is recuperating from surgery and bored. Her daily exercises and residual soreness are holding her back from the life of a private investigator. The lack of a functional car is another problem. Nevertheless, when DI Tom Shepherd requests her help with the arson and murder at Molly’s in the quiet town of Thirsbury, she is eager to get on the case.
With help from her partner, Viv, she gets mobile and is soon delving into the weird sexual practises of the owners of Molly’s, finding that some men will go to any lengths to fulfil their urges. Jasmine knows all about urges but finds that one of hers, the need to investigate, gets her into trouble that could threaten her new womanhood.

Another great story and Jasmine becoming more understandable and sympathetic all the time. I like the way you brought out all the characters and their location on the non-binary spectrum, and the fact that there were all the loves, hates, power struggles, resentments, wishing the boss dead, that you get in any group of people( club, workplace, etc). However bizarre, to some people, are their predilections and hobby, they are just like everybody else. I read late into two nights to finish it.

Jasmine Frame is back …

Three months after the events of Painted Ladies, Jasmine responds to a call for help and finds herself involved in a murder case by the special request of DCI Sloane. But who or what was the victim? What was the motive? Jasmine’s investigation leads into the murkier regions of the transgender scene. Meanwhile her own transition is progressing and she is about to take an irreversible step to lose her masculinity. What are the parallels between her situation and that of the murder victim?  Did both hope to achieve bodies by design?

  2. As a transitioning male to female myself, I can identify with some of the concerns Jasmine experiences as she pursues her chosen path. So far, I have read two full novels and two novellas and I was very interested how P.Ellis presented her main characters to the reader.
    Fantastic. Thank you.

    • Thanks for your comment. As you’ve read my blog you’ll know that the third novel is on its way. It explores some other aspects of trans life as well as a murder. I’m hoping to publish more of the novellas too. Jasmine is fiction but based on my experiences and knowledge of transwomen. Best wishes in your transition and please keep in touch. P.
