When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis. While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies, and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients, to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance and erotica.

Some women are so afraid of turning age forty, but it's actually a beautiful age. You know what you want, you don't worry what other people think about you, you don't "sweat the small stuff," and you stop rushing all the time because you've probably learned how to delegate. Simone was my tribute to great women who've done it their way; despite the obstacles, they're all winners!
Behind The Door: A Sizzling, Psychological Suspense
At forty-two, she thought she knew her own mind and all there was to know about life. She was good at her job. She believed the choices she’d made over time had given her a life that, if not happy, was at least interesting. Carl changed all that.
