Mercy by David Lindsey
This WRETCHED 'thriller' from 1990 centres on a serial killer (naturally) who kills woman (but of course) who are involved in an S&M sex club. This is BADLY dated, rabidly sexist and homophobic and is a damning indictment of the 1990s publishing industry. There is malicious intent, cod psychology, psychodrama and mansplaining in this unnecessary and terrible book.
“Maybe we won't have all this complicated by prostitutes.”
“It is love they are trying to elicit.”
