I don't know how to rate this book - it was well written but I didn't like it so I'll compromise and call it a 3.
Intense and disturbing read. It's Vonna Harper so you know there's going to be bondage style sex but you also know that the sex normally serves the plot [and yes, there is one]. And it does here also.
Our hero, Reeve Robinson, is part of a vigilante organization known as The Clan. They are after the Slavers, who take young women, turn them into slaves, and use them how they want - including abduction, and sometimes murder. To do this he's willing to kidnap Saree, and use her in much the same way as the Slavers to gain entrance with The Slavers by broadcasting their sessions over the Internet. Here's my BIG problem - I'm not a big fan of 'you can't make an omelet without breaking eggs' philosophy used by the good guys. Why is kidnapping, abuse, and non-consensual sex bad for the Slavers but OK for him? Because he has a moral purpose? [He does eventually let her in on the situation.]
On a lesser note, OK they've caught the bad guys [all of whom are obscenely wealthy]. They're going to hand them over the cops. Even with the most crusading of DAs, with our current judicial system most of them are going to walk and they'll probably charge the Clan [and especially our hero] with everything from assault to piracy...
I'll be honest, I skimmed over about two thirds of the book.
Very noir. Experienced bondage/porn star/nymphomaniac is drugged & kidnapped by undercover agent who is trying to bring down a ring of slavers. It was hard to like these characters, they were so egocentric. She is turned on by anything and everything. He is the brooding, hurting hero. Even though he finally lets her in on the scheme, it's hard to reconcile it with "the end justifies the means" attitude. This book is a total downer.
I've read other Vonna Harper books and have liked them, this book however disturbed me. I couldn't finish reading it.
