I selected this audio book expecting, I guess, something a bit like Se7en. I always enjoy a darkly written 'Who dunnit' and I am I big fan of Stuart MacBride. This novel was nothing like that. The novel, although engagingly read (I did manage to finish it- just) was more like a soft porn fictional read about the Bondage underworld. Little emphasis was put on finding the killer of the murdered women mentioned at the start of the book. Instead the author follows the main character, Caitlin, as she discovers she is a Dominant and that she quite enjoys a bit of bondage even when some people get hurt. That just about sums it!

What did you love best about Control Freak?
i love the fact that this book deals with a very edgy topy. something that is very taboo mixed with a crime novel and a who-dun-it with a twist.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Control Freak?
the visions of the s&m club that the main character sees during her investigation. she describes something that 99% of the readers would never experience in their lives.
Which scene was your favorite?
the climactic conclusion
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, and i almost did - work got in the way.
Any additional comments?
not for the faint of heart or easily shocked. if you can handle it or have listened to christa's other books - its a great listen.

The Narrator for this book is so irritating at the beginning of the book, that I almost stopped listening. Her narrations gets better the deeper into the book you get, however, the reverse is true for the story which starts out so promisingly. The murder ivestigation seems to get lost in the "erotic" sub plot. I was quite disappointed in this.
