There seems to be enormous potential in this book - a young novitiate kicked out of the convent and desperate to experience sensual joy; a life-hardened hero who may or may not be into kinky sex and a murderer into the bargain; a call-girl in hiding and a troubled hunk of man who happens to also be a priest. These elements could have blended into a fantastic erotic novel or a compelling mystery, but the combination of all these things produced, in my opinion, rather a muddle. Do they, don't they, will she, or has she already, nothing is ever really clarified and although the sexual tension is well developed, it never seems to be as resolved as it should be. The characters act rather irresponsibly, without their motivation being fully explored, and Ms. Forster's use of Catholicism throughout the story just muddies the waters. I believe that there is the possibility that Suzanne may be a first rate writer - and I am going to try another of her books - but this one certainly wouldn't rank as her masterpiece. Whatever point she was trying to make here never seems to be revealed. Sorry!

I think this is one of her best books. I have read all of her work and sometimes find the writing can be a bit off, however I did enjoy this book very much.

I bought this book because I read a book by Ms Forster in the past and it wasn't bad. But this book was obscenely bad. How can someone love a man who ties you up, drugs you, cuts you with a blade, and throws you to his enemies? On top of that the guy can't have normal sex.... The story line was not believeable the characters were horrible and weak. Don't waste your time or money on this book...
