When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor, and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis.
While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance, and erotica.
What was the hardest part of writing this book?
Colleen McCullough’s Thorn Birds – a sad love story with all the right ingredients to make you cry a river. An author who showed me how important it is to stir emotions in your readers.
The Devil’s Advocate, by Andrew Neiderman – a book to make you think where vanity can take you. It’s a potent and surprising book. I love surprises, and I always try to add one to my novels.
John Grisham’s The Firm – power, money, or freedom? A hard choice for a young lawyer. Choices are going to lead your life. I always make my characters face hard choices.
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell – this book is pure poetry! It inspired me to show beauty in my work; even when the situation is tragic, I try to include pretty settings. Beauty must exist, in spite of bad circumstances.
