How have I not heard of this author before? I could not put this book down; It was as if I were watching a movie. Based on my limited research, the description of the BDSM lifestyle seemed accurate. It was refreshing to find people enjoying the lifestyle without all being damaged by past abuses. The suspense part of the story was well written and there were several options for murderers that kept me on the edge.Special note: the BDSM activity and scenes can be extremely intense so if you're new to BDSM I would not recommend this as your first try. I found the scenes dealing with power exchange to be intensely emotional and powerful, striking me very deeply. In fact I'm so moved by this book I believe it's going to be my book review for my blog this week.A very well-written book.
