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)

This book is truly weird. The erotic scenes were also weird. There were opportuities for good sex sences but they were overlooked and left to the imagination. The murder investigation got lost in weirdness of the story.
