Antoniou is the author of the top-notch "Marketplace" erotica series. With "The Killer Wore Leather," she's branched out into mystery-erotica, and--humor. And this book is hilarious--not a compliment I dole out easily. Antoniou writes a tight little mystery with all the gratification of a jigsaw puzzle. She peoples it with an S/M community that she skewers with all the love and familiarity of a close family member.
What if Raymond Chandler was more explicit with his implied S/M? What if Agatha Christie's Miss Marple was a demanding bottom? (“That’s SLAVE Marple to you!”) What if Chandler and Christie wrote their books with the humor of Steve Martin? We don’t have to wonder “what if?” We only need to listen to this book.
Narrator, Lauren Fortgang gives an especially excellent performance. Each character has a clear "voice," but it never sounds gimmicky.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Killer Wore Leather to be better than the print version?
Never read print version
What other book might you compare The Killer Wore Leather to and why?
Not because the stories are similar but they are both about murders and are very well done. "Punishment With Kisses" by Diane Anderson-Minshell a well d done book about kinky and wild behaviors. Good ending too.
What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?
Excellent narrator, she brings characters to life even the men and emotions are well played.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were lots of laughs, and a few heart tugs, but it was an interesting murder mystery. Especially for the genre it's written for.
Any additional comments?
I'd like to see more well written books in the kinky, gay, lesbian, erotic, area. This one on a scale of 1 being the worst and 10 being the best was a 7.5

I love and care about all the characters. well written and excellent plot too!
a tongue in cheek look at the pageantry behind fetish events. The authors knowledge and previous books culminate in a very funny parody. it's not particularly titillating but it's not meant to be. just pure comedy.
