After seeing a curious flyer, Freya takes a job caring for Elijah, the comatose son of the eccentric Vincetti family. She soon discovers that the Vincettis' labyrinthine mansion hides a wealth of secrets, their corporate rivals have a nasty habit of being extravagantly executed, and Elijah is not the saint they portray him to be. As well, Marilyn Monroe keeps showing up, unaware she's very much deceased. And there's something very strange about the story that Elijah's brother Jack is writing...Killing Adonis is a tragicomic tale about love, delusion, corporate greed and the hazards of using pineapple cutters while hallucinating.

    Killing Adonis is a thoroughly enjoyable satire featuring unusual protagonists. Freya is a synesthete - she sees colours when she hears music. She's employed to look after Elijah, the beloved son of the Vincetti family, who is in a coma. His brother Jack has brittle bone syndrome, isn't really loved, and doesn't go outside.

    Freya takes it upon herself to find out what the Vincetti's are really up to, and along the way J. M. Donellan creates a wonderful satire where corporations manufacture disasters just so they can save the day for PR stunts, much alcohol is consumed, and someone is going around killing people.

    This is a fun read for any who like something a bit different. Highly recommended.
