Mimi Lessing's attraction to a seduction artist has thrown her marriage plans into chaos. She never imagined that the pleasures of sex could so overwhelm her imagination. Jake Teller's attraction to Mimi Lessing is causing him to rethink his greatest pleasures: the art of the chase, the gleam of submission, the thrill of giving women greater pleasure than they ever dreamed of. A man who secretly watches Mimi sees her with Jake and is filled with rage. Soon the women who Jake has slept with begin being murdered, focusing investigators straight at Jake. Then Mimi herself disappears. "Jake & Mimi" is a relentlessly plotted and powerfully written thriller and a breathtaking exploration of the pleasures and limits of sex.

About the Author:

Frank Baldwin's first novel, Balling the Jack, was published in 1997. A graduate of Hamilton College, he attended the Berkeley Novel Writing Workshop. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Lora, and their son, Evan.

From Library Journal:

Baldwin's (Balling the Jack) erotic thriller is neither erotic nor thrilling. Mimi Lessing is engaged to a wonderful man, but although their sexual encounters are satisfying, they lack an air of danger. Enter Jake, a world-class seduction artist who works with Mimi in a leading Manhattan accounting firm. With one glance, he can make women swoon and engage in bondage-style sex. Mimi discovers his power, and Jake, intrigued by her sophistication and control, invites her to watch one of his conquests. She becomes enthralled by his games, eagerly awaiting the next opportunity to watch him in action. What Mimi doesn't realize, however, is that she is being watched by a stalker willing to kill to keep her away from Jake and his conquests. The plot seems like an afterthought in this limp and plodding novel, which overflows with extended descriptions of Jake's sexual technique. Definitely not bedtime reading; pass on this.
