This story knocked my socks off! It tells the story of Jimmy Hawthorne, whose fetishes revolve around bondage. He takes this a step further by acting out his fantasies. Am not going to ruin the storyline, but suffice to say if you're not happy with reading about extreme acts of fictional violence, then stay away from this book. If you like your books brutal and graphic, then you can't go wrong with this. The suspense throughout the book is palpable and the author does an exceptional job of character development. I can't fault this book. It was well constructed and beautifully presented. One particular scene I would like to mention is the fingernail scene. (You will know what I'm talking about when you reach this part!). I was physically squirming whilst reading this; it was horrific! This scene will stay imprinted on my mind for a long time, and if a book does that to the reader then in my opinion it's done its job. An excellent read, but not for the faint-hearted.
