But who will be the next to die? Megan, the hardworking real estate agent; newly divorced Kathleen; Alex, married to a wealthy businessman; or Rachel, the spurned wife of a hot Hollywood screenwriter? Following her own investigation, Megan takes a wild ride through L.A.'s bondage parlors, hidden sex clubs, and the extravagant lifestyles of the rich and famous; soon she discovers that her quest for adventure has abruptly transformed into a dangerous game of life and death.
Mary Firmin was born in the North of England, emigrated to Canada, then traveled to Florida where she owned and operated an Arthur Murray Dance Studio. She moved on to Santa Monica, California where she worked in Real Estate Sales and eventually became Vice President of a large firm on the West Side. She began her writing career by attending many classes at local colleges, including UCLA, and then moved on to private writer's groups.

When I first starting reading Deadly Pleasures I though this really isn't my type of book, but once I got a few pages farther into the book, I loved it!!
There were two murders being called the Bondage Murders that happened close to were Megan Riley was living. There is a twisted serial killer on the lose. She was a bit nervous about the murders happening. Megan finds the handsome detective handling the case interesting. Megan and her 3 best friends make a big mistake that gets them in a lot of trouble.
This book has lots of action in it. Once you start reading it you will not want to put it down till you are finished.
I received a Copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for the review, and the review is honest and my responsibility.
