Every page brings new twists to a wild adventure plot that never stops. Every time a character makes a move, something goes wrong, adding to the conflict. Although the main characters have an immoral edge that might bother some readers, they end up on the right side and are always sympathetic. The sex is sizzling and touching to see in a married couple.

Eva and Jake Kelly have it all: a glamorous life in Manhattan, successful careers and a wild passion for each other. But what adds real spice is their secret life. Eva picks up drunken businessmen and Jake takes compromising pictures of her with them, then they blackmail the men. When they choose the wrong mark, they find themselves in bigger trouble than they could imagine, forced to work a con that could kill them. (St. Martin's, Oct., 256 pp., $19.95)
