know and poor Kathleen’s husband Gino has decided to move on child and all leaving her a wimping and crying mess Just what happens to drag these women into the murder just wait and see There is much to tell as I continue my review of Deadly Pleasures which if you think about it is the end result for these women George’s funeral would bring all of the players together but not before the police decide to uestion and arrest Michael Harrington for Sherrie’s murder Blackmail lies deceit and a serial killer are just some of what makes up this intriguing and fast paced plot As Rachel decides to do something about her life Megan wonders what she is really up to as Alex and Charlie along with the rest go to the funeral which proves to be uite uniue Each one reacting in her own way poor Junie

club to celebrate George’s life But what happens next will definitely rock you to the core if you are not familiar with hard core SM you will definitely get a first hand view education and tour of many places that offer this as recreation diversion and much Why was Rachel definitely going to enlist the aid of her own toy boy hoping to entice the others too Let’s recap for just a moment Why was Rachel trying to gain entrance into a kinky club Where does Brian fit in Why was he so friendly with Gino The investigation revealed that there were many others involved including a murder in San Francisco that links with the ones Matt was dealing with Even the owner of the Party Favorites Fantasy Films where the DVD’s originated and his wife was a member of the Yacht club even she had not idea about these businesses or her husband’s sexual preferences The plot thickens the suspects add up and the clues are all scattered but the murders all the same But when the detectives approach Helen whose ex husband owned all of the above another piece of the puzzle is revealed about the location of the Bondage Murders But Helen decides a little afternoon diversion for the ladies might be fun who better than to serve it up Michael Harrington When the pieces finally fit into place and the players are all together just who the killer is will definitely surprise the reader and the reasons behind the murders too Who lives Who else falls prey to our killer you won’t believe as Matt and Angelle race the clock to save not only Megan but also the others when the killer is revealed their lives are in danger and one woman would never be the same Author Mary Firmin allows the reader to take a first hand look at these SM clubs the history behind them is shared and the need to have a man in some women’s lives might just lead to than just Deadly Pleasures This is one book that will make you think twice before getting involved with a toy boy going to these clubs and finding happiness in
