Smith effortlessly uses flashbacks to lure readers into the life of Ebony Knight, who evolves from a little girl who cons wealthy men under her mother's tutelage into an ultra- successful dominatrix. But the psychological and physical pain and bondage Ebony's clients crave represent only one level of intrigue. When Ebony becomes the only suspect in the deaths of her fiance and an obsessed client, the first- person narrative becomes the scalpel that expertly cuts through presumptions of insanity and reveals a conspiracy at its core. This is a phenomenal read.

Media tycoon Erik will do --and pay -- anything to be with dominatrix Ebony who, despite her mother's admonitions, is falling in love with Jeff,
a famed photographer. But best friend Carmelita resents Ebony's newfound love. When Erik and Jeff are killed in Ebony's home, she is committed to a mental institution. But is Ebony truly crazy, or is she just crazy to trust the barracudas masquerading as friends? (Pocket, Aug., 288 pp., $14.00)
