There is much to enjoy in The Sex Club,
especially in its deeply-developed characters and timely, intelligent plot. But the major pleasures come from the author s risky decision to tell her story from multiple points of view. Thus we follow Ruth into her kitchen as she bakes cookies and builds more bombs while holding conversations with God, who assures her that the only lives that matter are the lives of the unborn. We follow poor, tortured Kera, who wonders if one of her own young clients is a murderer. Most intriguing of all, we follow the conflicted Jackson as he deals with his alcoholic ex-wife and his own rebellious daughter, who he suspects may be a member of the Sex Club. This chilling book offers a rare insight into the kind of religious fundamentalism which preaches that any horrific act is acceptable if it is carried out in God s name. A thrilling, eye-opening read. -- Mystery Scene magazine
