The disappearance of financier
Philip Maur initially is only a disturbing item in The New York Times to sex
therapist Dr. Morgan Snow. Then she's asked to counsel 12 women called the Scarlet Society. In their sessions,
Morgan becomes privy to sensitive
information: Maur is one of a few
men involved in the society's sexual games, and the women fear that's
connected to his abduction.

The idea seems far-fetched -- until
a second man who's also a regular
with the society vanishes, and Detective Noah Jordain comes back into Morgan's life, questioning her involvement in the case. Discussing what she knows with Noah is tricky for several reasons: Privilege restricts what Morgan can reveal, and the attraction between
them has intensified since their last meeting. But the clock is ticking: There's every suggestion that more
men are in danger.

Rose excels at creating multifaceted characters and atmospheric, quickly paced stories with a twist. This is all
of those things and more. It's also an interesting peek at how some of the other half presumably lives. (Jan.,
416 pp., $6.99)
