Overview

I haven't touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.

I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.

They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide... my lust for blood, my love of death.

Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets... one is bound to escape.

What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl's life depending on you venturing into society?


Enter a world of lies, thrills, fears, and all desires, in this original thriller from A. R. Torre.

Self-published erotica author Torre (Blindfolded Innocence) plunges into cybersex “camming” in this overwrought dishing of homicidal psychosis. The Internet enables Deanna Madden (aka Jessica Reilly) to make a tidy $6.99 per minute—which translates to between $30,000 and $55,000 a month—performing sexual acts alone in live video feeds for websites patronized by the lonely and the depraved. She also broadcasts similar exhibitions four hours per day for 350 private subscribers ($20 per month), who can anonymously bare their sexual secrets and fearlessly fantasize to her. Dreading her own bloodlust, Deanna isolates herself in her scabby apartment for three years until a client’s pedophiliac fantasies threaten a child. Then Deanna reenters the world and swoops to the rescue. Readers should be prepared for superficial psychological analysis, ham-fisted red-herring-laying, and Deanna’s unconvincing redemptive yen for a handy hunky UPS driver. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (July)
From the Publisher
"It's not for the feint hearted, granted, but A.R Torre does an incredible job of taking a sensitive subject matter and telling a compelling and thought provoking story... The Girl in 6E is definitely worth a peek."—Jodi Ellen Malpas, #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author"

A.R. Torre's The Girl in 6E lifts the veil on the dark, erotic world of camming, but the book contains so many more surprises than that. At the novel's core, a tender heart beats, and the increasingly suspenseful pages fly by as its deepest secrets are revealed. This is a taut, edgy, thrill ride, powerfully gripping and impossible to turn away from."—David Bell, author of Never Come Back and Cemetery Girl"

Dark, edgy, and thrilling in a completely unexpected way."—Lisa Renee Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Inside Out series"

An incredible debut. Gritty, unique, primal, full of angst, oddly feminist, and right up my alley. The Girl in 6E deviates from formulaic romance to deliver something truly special and worthy of praise and attention. A dark soul like me isn't often surprised by controversy or taboo subject matter, but this book delivers and I'll be reading more A.R. Torre books in the future. Kudos!"—CJ Roberts, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Dark Duet"

A taut thriller unlike any suspense novel today."—The Quincy Herald-Whig"

The Girl in 6E is uniquely twisted and captivates from the beginning. The premise is entirely original, as are the characters and the pacing. The main character may be a cold killer, but inside is a woman with a soul who sacrifices everything to keep from unleashing herself on the world.... Torre has written a beautifully warped thriller that will be staying with this reviewer for a long time to come."—RT Book Reviews, Top Pick! (4.5 stars)

This is an exceptional book, both in the uniqueness of the story and the writing and character development. Though dealing with sex (camming), it is not the type that you find in erotica. This is a complex analysis of the human mind in a sexual context, but most importantly it is a beautiful account of the healing of a broken heart (and mind) and its path towards redemption. Highly, highly recommended.

I was skeptical picking up this book, but boy was I surprised... it's more than a girl getting paid for online sex. She has some serious deep issues and the twists and turns make this story really great. It is shorter than I was expecting having 58 chapters... I read this book in a day (I'm not a very fast reader), I didn't want to put it down. Highly recommend.

In this story we meet Deanna Martin but she no longer goes by the name of Deanna she currently goes by the name of Jessica Manchild.  Jessica is an online sex cammer who charges $6.99 a minute who’s only human interaction are her clients on the internet, Simon her neighbor, and Jeremy the UPS delivery man.  What I loved about this book were the clients and her interaction with them, every client is different and at the beginning of each of the client sessions tells you a little about the type of client they are and their interaction with one another.  Deanna has her whole life set up for her; she never leaves her apartment, all her food and supplies are delivered to her, and she hasn’t been outside of her apartment in three years.  Why hasn’t she been outside of her apartment for the past three years?  Because Deanna has a secret, she has the desire to kill people or more accurately put obsession with murder.  Some people get aroused during sex, Deanna gets aroused fantasizing about killing people.  She’s killed before and decided that for the sake of the town she lives in she will lock herself up and never go outside again so she sits at her computer and makes her living only interacting with Simon who locks her up every night so she doesn’t have the urge to open the door and kill someone and Jeremy who delivers her packages and gets a simple, ‘Leave the package.  Thank you’ every single time, no face to face contact just words spoken through the door. You might ask yourself how did she manage to lock herself up in her apartment and have no one miss her?  You see, Deanna has no family anymore her mother, father, and siblings are all dead, murdered by her mother and Deanna has developed her mother’s psychotic thoughts.  Her clients think they know her, that she’s a college student who has a life outside of her apartment but they are just fabrications, no one really knows who the true Deanna is. As the book goes on you get to meet her clients and one client sticks out more than the rest.  Deanna over the years has met some interesting character guys who like anal play, guys that are into humiliation, but she has an issue with clients that are pedophiles and while some clients in the past have shown these tendencies, she has a feeling that her new client: RalphMA35 wants to hurt a little girl named Annie.  Usually these types of clients don’t mention names they just have a certain fantasy they want to act out in their minds, but he doesn’t just want pink and ruffles and innocence he wants Annie and with the introduction of Annie everything changes for Deanna. This book is written extraordinarily well and what really helps you connect with the characters is that it’s told from more than one view, however the first person view of Deanna’s character really helps you to develop a connection with her and feel what she feels.  In this book you take a journey through the mind of Deanna and the changes she begins to go through in the book and the one defining moment that changes everything about the way she feels and the way she is.  If I could I would give this book a rating of 6 instead of just 5.  I love this book and I also loved Blindfolded Innocence which is also written by Alessandra Torre.  So if you are looking for something different and unique I highly recommend that you read The Girl in 6E, you won’t be disappointed; I know I wasn’t.

I was expecting something completely different after reading some of the other innocence books by the same author. My first reaction upon completing the book was OMG! I was pleasantly surprised with the whole book. It is extremely different than the others and I loved every word. I love the other characters, the doctors, the "friend" who helps and Jeremy. I'm just a fan of wity banter and I love when conversations have sarcasm and make me laugh. The book definitely delved into some unknown territory, but I didn't mind going there. It kept me glued to the book until I finished. I can't wait for more books in either genre by A.R. Torre.

This was a great book!  It was nice to see something different from a lot of the books out!  I loved Jessica (Deanna) in this book.  I loved how  blunt she was with everything and how she pretty much commanded everyone that she came into contact with!  Jeremy was great and a pretty brave soul for what he did in the book :o)  I highly recommend this book

This is a sexy thriller, not a romance. I read Blindfolded Innocence and walked into this book expecting that - this is a psychological thriller more along the lines of Jennifer Garner: witty and leaves you guessing the entire time.

The book is way better than the desciption says. Yes, she does get paid to be sexual on the web, but it is about so much more. It's not too graphic, so people who are afraid of that blush factor can still enjoy it. It contains suspense, that had me holding my breath at times. There were twists in a few places I didnt see coming, but was so glad they were there. I definitely think people should try it. :-)

I am a thriller fanatic - and this book blew me away! I was a little put off by the 'erotica' tag on it, but once I got into the story I understood why it was there. This book, the setup and configuration, creates a lot of sexual references - you don't want your 17 year old son reading this.  BUT, if you can handle graphic sexual descriptions, this book  is INCREDIBLE! It is a pyschological thriller and addresses the interesting question: What would you do if you suspected someone of the potential to commit a crime. Would you act? Or would you wait for something to happen? I loved this writer's style - the book takes off and kept me constantly guessing - it reminds me of Gillian Flynn's books in that regard.  It was exceptionally well written and beautifully edited and formatted - a pleasure to read!

This book gave me mixed feelings when i fiest stumbled upon it and began to read. I didnt like how detailed it was about Deanna's job as a cam girl. I thought it woulf focus more on why she was messed up and wwanted to go on a killing spree. When i got to the middle of the book though, i realized hy yoy needed to know bout cam girls and how interesting snd morally challenging of a world it could be. My outlook of the book change and i got to a point qhere i couldnt put it down. The intensity from the climax of the story draws yiu in and you realized why the author set up the story tje wsy she id and are thankfuly. Over all a good read and one i would recommend to people ho were older.

The Girl in 6E is the first installment in A.R. Torre’s dark/erotic thriller series titled: Deanna Madden. The Girl in 6E is a wild, wild ride. I can honestly say it’s unlike any book I’ve read before. I learned much more than I ever wanted to know about the profession of CamGirls and the sexual interests of the clientele. But I loved the character building of the lead: Deanna. She’s so bad ass in an evil villainous type of way, and there's just something I love about sexy, crazy, messed up heroines! Deanna hasn't left her apartment in three years. And no, she's not scared to go outside. She is scared for the safety of others around her. She's scared of what she might do to them. Yeah... she's dark, her daydreams are our nightmares, and they make her heart race in excitement. But at the same time, she’s surprisingly good and innocent. The storyline is mostly about Deanna and all that contributes to her current lifestyle choices. Is never leaving your apartment and doing absolutely everything via computer considered a lifestyle? I guess so. But there is one situation that encourages her to eventually leave her apartment and that’s when the thriller part of this book begins. Notice I said thriller and not mystery- there’s no mystery here. Believe me, I kept waiting for the big twist at the end and it never came. But that’s OK, pretty much everything else made up for it! Besides, it was pretty thrilling to watch Deanna transfer her villain persona to superhero/vigilante awesomeness. You’ve got to check it out! My favorite quote: “No one is normal. Everyone is just pretending to be normal.”

This book is a page turner. It's an adult book about a girl who does cyber sex. She hasn't left her apartment for three years. She locks herself in her apartment because she has the urge to kill people. Warning: This book has lots of sexual content and can be inappropriate for young readers. Adult psychological thriller For mature audiences only.

The plot line is genius storytelling. The characters are psychologically complex and unique. The writing is magnificent. I so love reading anything written by Alessandra Torre! The girl in 6E is deeply traumatized. Her life is very unusual to say the least. She has locked herself away in her apartment to prevent hurting anyone else. She has killed before. Her method of employment at home is rather unique too. She comes into contact with quite a number of men with different fetishes. Pedophilia is one she abhors ... just like we all do. Presented with the possibility and then the fact that a 6 year old child has been abducted, she is faced with a decision of saving a life or staying locked up in her apartment. Anybody out there who is looking for something unusual, not raw or depressing, but unique and is looking for a psychological suspense/thriller... look no more and read this book. No wonder it won the RT Award for 2014 for the best Suspense novel!

This book was not what I expected. I could not put it down. Its not exactly erotica like people think it is. There is sex in the book, but its just telling a story, not meant to turn you on. It is a very dark read. I enjoyed it, and am excited fir the second book!

I really enjoyed listening to this. It definitely enhanced the story to listen instead of read, because I wasn't tempted to skip ahead in the story. Jorjeanna Marie's performance did have one, small set back, though. In the beginning she kept changing her voice for Jessica's character and it threw me off, but eventually I either got used to it or she stuck with one. It didn't ruin anything, but it did distract for a moment. Regardless, I would definitely listen to Jorjeanna Marie again. The story was very different from what I am used to reading, especially in the new adult genre, and I loved that. This story was unique, interesting and kept me listening. I cannot wait for book two!

An excellent thriller! ‘I don’t lock it. I never lock my door. I figure if someone is stupid enough to come inside they have ill motives and deserve to die at my hands. It’s one of my favorite fantasies because it is one of the ones most likely to occur.’  In the beginning of this novel, I had doubts that I would like it. While I do enjoy a good thriller, I tend to prefer romantic suspense over hardcore-in-the-mind-of-sickos-mysteries. I wasn't sure if I could stomach being in the mind of a character with homicidal thoughts or in the mind of some of her (sexually deviant) clients. However, audiobook narrator, Jorjeana Marie soon won me over. She was simply fantastic and really enhanced my reading experience with her narrating style. I quickly discovered that Deanna was a complex character with layers that I wanted to peel back and understand.  Fascinating, interesting and/or cool things revealed: Statistics and explanations of sexual proclivities, the world of web sex caming, social disorders, Deanna's daily routine, Jeremy’s mission to actually see who the Girl in 6E was, Dr. Derek’s counseling. Other random things that stood out for me: Deanna's first face-to-face encounter with Jeremy had me seriously worried because he was such a likable character, and I didn’t want him to be her 2nd murder victim. Mike, one of her techie clients, was funny and plays a vital role in her search for scum of the earth, perv extraordinaire Ralph. I loved the role Jeremy unknowingly plays in helping Deanna rescue Annie. I also loved when he later took care of Deanna upon her return.  Their through-the-door courtship was so adorable, and I really hope they make it as a couple in the sequel in spite of Deanna homicidal urges. I'll be marking my calendar for the highly anticipated release of Do Not Disturb (Deanna Madden #2) on April 21, 2015.

I wasn't sure about this book at first. But staying with it, proved in my best interest. Clearly illustrates the human condition, self control, and subversive lifestyles... while somehow remaining quite wholesome and charming.
