Episode 59 - I'm Living But I'm Not Alive: Book One in the Black Caviar Thriller eBook Series by Psymon H.

121 minutes

The editor for this series posted about how bad the writing was in a Facebook group called Men Failing at Erotica. We happened to see the post and another TBC episode was born. Thanks to Preston for bringing this one to our attention!

Content Warning! In addition to our usual barnyard language, this week we've got: drug trafficking/drug use, forced prostitution, guns, kidnapping, murder, sex, and torture.

Drug trafficking, a Chicago crime syndicate, dirty cops, murder, and torture sure seem like topics that could make for an exciting book. When the author includes an introduction informing you that he is, "a new breed of thriller writer," with a, "raw and sexy ability to place you in the box seat," then surely this book will deliver! ...right?
