The sweet death of Coyote, master taxi driver, was only the first. Soon people are sneezing and dying all over Manchester. Telekinetic cop Sybil Jones knows that, like Coyote, they died happy – but even a happy death can be a murder. As exotic blooms begin to flower all over the city, the pollen count is racing towards 2000 and Sybil is running out of time.

Not a sci-fi but a fantasy
Perversions aside, this book would have been better classified as a YA novel rather than a science fiction work. There wasn't an ounce of science. The fantasy realm felt very juvenile.
The Vurt world was un-fascinating. The lust-infused world fell flat.
She was all-around good.
Nope. difficult to finish as I lost interest in the Alice-In-Wonderland parallel universe
