Unlike her other recent novels, The Love Killers is told chronologically, beginning with Margaret Lawrence Brown's killing. No in media res opening, no lengthy flashbacks: Collins deals with each major character's actions sequentially so that the reader knows what each is doing at approximately the same time as the others.

There are the usual four-lettered dialogue and several scenes of lovemaking and violence. Seekers of disguised celebrities will be disappointed for the most part; this novel is not likely to be thought a roman a clef. Only three very incidental characters hint at possible "real" people: Billy Express, April Crawford, and Sammy Albert, and there is not much about them to warrant scrutinized speculation. The Love Killers is a mainstream novel with sex, violence, and a happy ending.
