Publisher's Summary

In this erotic horror novel, a grisly murder in New York City's downtown meat-packing district leads hardboiled crime writer Caitlin McCullough into the depths of a secret sadomasochistic underground: a perverse playground for the rich and twisted, where anything goes and nothing is taboo. There, Caitlin must risk everything to find not only the truth surrounding the murder, but the dark truth hidden inside herself.


What the Critics Say

"Christa Faust is a Veronica in a world of Betties. (Quentin Tarantino)
"Christa Faust is a fiercely original talent; undeniable and startling. Her enviable rise blends honesty, anarchist perception and a stunning voice that verges on poetry. With impolite intelligence, she uncovers beauty and finds profundity in the unthinkable." (Richard Christian Matheson)

Torturous SM potboiler

The Narrator for this book is so irritating at the beginning of the book, that I almost stopped listening. Her narrations gets better the deeper into the book you get, however, the reverse is true for the story which starts out so promisingly. The murder ivestigation seems to get lost in the "erotic" sub plot. I was quite disappointed in this.
