After the Magdalene murders, Dr. Morgan Snow has become a celebrity. It's this fame that draws the Scarlet Society to her, for her resolution in not betraying her client then tells the members she will not do so now. That resolve will be severely tried, however, over the course of this case. The Scarlet Society is a group of socially elite women who meet to indulge in perverse games they play with chosen men in secret. Now, one of those men has become a victim of homicide and they need counseling to deal with it. Then, more victims appear, all of them the toys of the Scarlet women. Dr. Snow considers calling the cops, particularly the cop she's interested in, more than once, especially after she is in danger herself. In a case that runs down to the wire, Morgan Snow will be challenged on many levels, personally and professionally. ................ Ms. Rose balances the elements of her story as delicately as humanly possible. Though the nature of the crimes is sexual, that aspect is kept at arm's length. Amid all the tension charged moments are rare, sweet ones that make Morgan more real to the reader. Her protective instincts for her daughter are touching and warm, adding a human element that keeps the story grounded.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
