First published in 2000

Dead Sexy is an erotic thriller with a comic edge, set in the Sydney CBD, which at night is dead – and so, we soon discover, is Johnny.

Nicola writes about sex for a women’s magazine. She’s playing with fire. Her boyfriend Fox is good at putting fires out. Liz, Nicola’s editor, can’t keep a secret. Just ask Johnny. You can’t ask Johnny. He’s dead. And Detective Sergeant Damien Mann? Let’s just say he’s on the case.

Praise for Dead Sexy

‘It’s a short and sweet read that is a bit like watching an episode of ‘Sex In The City’. Jaivin satirises the Cosmo Cleo world of magazine publishing’


‘There’s a decidedly designer feel about this ultra-slim erotic thriller. The writing is as slick as the magazine headlines it mildly satirises.’


‘Javin can satirise human pretensions, insecurities, and other foibles with considerable insight and verve.’
