Behind The Door
by A. Gavazzoni

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Psychological and Erotic Thriller

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

“Yes indeed, my friend. I’ve seen a lot in my short life. I’ve bent over backward to please. I’ve been a puppet. That wasn’t for me, so one day I decided to stop.”

More than a hint of pain showed in her eyes…unsettling to find in such a young and beautiful woman. Who could have hurt her so much that she’d come to behave as she did?

“I know how it is,” I said. “It’s like apnea. What’s pleasurable at the start of relationships doesn’t last because it’s not real. You’ve decided to be real, once and for all.”

“Apnea?”

I’d finally said something that had surprised her.

“Yes. I like to go diving. Sometimes I dive without air tanks. I hold my breath. It’s called apnea and you can do it for only so long. At the beginning of relationships, people hold their breath. When they can’t do it anymore, they go back to being who they are and relationships end.”

“I adore that description.”

GUEST POST:

Five Reasons You Should Read My Book

It’s hard to brag about my own work, but I believe there are some good reasons readers would like my books

1)     My books are like roller coasters – there are emotional ups and downs all the time, the readers won’t have a monotonous reading experience, and like riding a roller coaster, they are going to experience highs and lows as they hate, love, cry, and laugh with my characters.

2)     To have fun – The psychiatric patients in my novels are fun, they have their own language, and their medical conditions provide for some funny scenes.

3)     Learn about having compassion and not judging – my books are about different behaviors, people judged “not normal” by society. All of them have complicated lives or traumatic pasts that play a role in their behavior, and this (hopefully) shows the reader you can judge a person for what you see, but you have to know her deeply to pass sentence on her.

4)     Readers are going to know places they don’t dare to go in real life—places I don’t go, either! Swing houses and orgy parties and nightclubs have their doors opened to the readers.

5)     Be surprised every step of the way – As a former FBI agent who endorsed my second novel said: “You are going to feel like the special agent trying to decipher the crimes.”
