Treating the wealthy and prominent isn't unusual for sex therapist Morgan Snow, but her privileged patients don't usually arrive at her office in disguise. So she's slightly suspicious of "Bob," an addict of live pornography on the Internet. Then some of the women he's been watching begin to die. Ethics prevent Morgan from discussing the subject with her lover, homicide cop Noah Jordain, although it's a sore point between them.

Morgan is also counseling a group of teenagers who've been accessing the same websites, and it turns out that some of them have information pertinent to the case. But she can't share these details either, so Morgan takes action herself -- and it could cost her more than her relationship with Noah.

Rose has created another edgy, intriguing story with a topical theme. As always, Morgan's personal problems are as interesting as her professional ones, and there's an agreeably sneaky twist at the end. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
