Read full description of the books:
Gabriel and Ingrid Santerre are a wealthy, highly connected couple with a savage kink: In the privacy of a posh New York City hotel suite, they like to subject teenage prostitutes to extremely rough sex. This time, though, they've gone too far, and their victim is dead. As Gabriel goes out to buy a golf bag to hide the body in, Ingrid, strangely passive and long brutalized by her husband, suddenly feels remorse and calls the police. The two are swiftly taken into custody and separated; Gabriel calls in his high-powered lawyer and calmly schemes to frame his wife.
But NYPD detective Caroline Reese won't let him get away with it. Despite Gabriel's connections--reaching right into the district attorney's office--and a warning from her lieutenant that she's proceeding at her own risk, Reese finds the one woman who can lead her to the truth. Reese's quest is blocked not only by Gabriel's pull, but by a violent episode in her own past--one that has left her with a blind spot that keeps her from seeing the whole picture about Gabriel and his wife.
Bringing an exciting new voice to the noir thriller, Heather Lewis coolly and masterfully builds the tension until the novel's shattering--and deeply satisfying--payoff.

Heather Lewis was born in Bedford, New York and attended Sarah Lawrence College. She is the author of three published novels. The first, House Rules (1994), details the experiences of a fifteen year old girl working as a show rider of horses-an experience the author herself had in her teenage years. Lewis's second novel, The Second Suspect (1998), follows the struggles of a female police investigator trying to prove the guilt of a powerful and influential businessman responsible for the rape and murder of several young women. The third, posthumously published novel, Notice (2004), describes the experiences of a young prostitute, Nina and her involvement with a sadist and his wife. Her works explore aspects of American culture, such as the connections between power, drugs, sex, violence, love and justice. Through these themes, Heather Lewis draws the reader into questioning the nature of love and relationships, the character of human nature or motivation and, most challengingly, the boundary between pleasure and pain. Significantly, the novels present strong, yet vulnerable female characters offering an alternative to more typical American narrative constructions driven by male protagonists within male-dominated scenes.
Heather Lewis taught at the Writer's Voice and contributed to various anthologies of literature including Best Lesbian Erotica (1996, 1997), Once Upon a Time: Erotic Fairy Tales for Women (1996), and A Woman Like That: Lesbian and Bisexual Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories (1999). The collection also includes work by Allan Gurganus, Dale Peck, Mike Corrigan, Margaret Au, as well as shorter pieces by Sarah Schulman, Meg Daly, and others. Heather Lewis returned to New York in the fall of 2001, after a year in Arizona. She ended her life in May of 2002, in New York.
