OrangeReviewStarErotica veteran Reisz (The Red) will have fans rushing to grab her latest sexy spy novel. Young French spy Kingsley Boissonneault is an expert at two things: killing and keeping people from getting too close. He sates his passion by sleeping with a different woman every night, but they can't drive off the vicious boy in white who appears in his dreams: the ghost of his sadistic former lover. As part of an "unofficial" reconnaissance mission to locate his colonel's missing nephew, the lieutenant enters a mysterious sex cult that worships Pauline Réage's The Story of O and sees women as masters to be served by men. A true masochist, Kingsley fits in immediately and finds himself taken to new heights by group leader Madame's keen intuition and elegant sadism. Can one night with Madame drive the only man Kingsley's ever loved from his mind once and for all? Reisz's delightfully sensual language will thrill readers, as will the titillating intrigue of Madame's challenges for the eager-to-serve lieutenant. Lush descriptions of the beautiful monster who haunts Kingsley's dreams blend seamlessly with delightful earthly sexploits in a novel that is simultaneously weighty, sensual, and humorous.
VERDICT A masterly and rich contribution to the erotic thriller genre. Highly recommended.
