Master of Pain, this is one for the extreme horror/genre fans. It is extremely graphic in the content, sex, violence and BDSM. It is far from one for the sensitive/faint of heart.
Melanie has always been attracted to assertive, dominant , alpha males. She has always been curious about sadism and masochism, bondage, and submission, but when she meets a man on an online BDSM website, who calls himself SLAVEMASTER, she will experience a level of sadomasochism the goes far beyond safe, sane, and consensual. Inspired by the true story of America’s first online serial killer. From the twisted minds of Wrath James White and Kristopher Rufty, comes a story of extreme violence, sex, perversion, and the occult.
Master of Pain is inspired by the internet serial killer, John Edward Robinson.
It’s a well written story, abet a little on the graphic side and far too much sex for me, but I accept that this is all needed as it is based on a true life sex killer. The characters have many layers and provoke a rapid response in the reader. The offset between the killer and Melanie works very well, such different temperaments and lifestyles. They compliment each other wonderfully.
This is a good, yet tough, read if you are a fan of the more extreme genre and true crime/serial killer works.
