The apparent murder-suicide of newspaper tycoon Fred Masters and his girlfriend Miranda Jay supplies titillating gossip for the tabloids and has many high-placed persons running scared. As former mistress to a wealthy man with powerful government connections, Miranda was privy to confidential information, which many feel could be exposed by her death. In a series of flashbacks, Davis ( The Pretenders and other novels) traces Miranda's life from Midwestern yokel to an expert at sexual bondage and domination. The author's attempts to fashion a novel that functions as a mystery, political thriller, and an essay in eroticism fails. Cardboard characters jet from one exotic setting to another, and none is as flat as Miranda Jay.
