A nice girl like Robin Hudson never expected to find herself at an S&M club, but as a third-string reporter for a tabloid TV news show, she must pursue all the sleazy leads her jerk boss hurls her way with a smile on her face—at least on camera. But this time the story hits close to home.
Robin’s always thought a person has to be a little sadistic to become a gynecologist, but when her new OB/GYN is shot through the heart and handcuffed to his office chair, a matchbook from an S&M establishment is the only clue. Much to the delight of Robin’s muckraking boss, the not-so-good doctor had his hands in all sorts of sordid activities. But Robin, on the other hand, is having a hard time whipping up any enthusiasm to interview the dominatrix who runs the club.
It’s also the worst time for her Bible-toting Aunt Mo to visit New York City—aka Sodom and Gomorrah—to set Robin on the straight and narrow. Aunt Mo is convinced the streets aren’t safe—and maybe she’s right. A sniper is taking potshots at anxious All News Network anchormen, and it’s starting to look like the target practice is connected to the dead doc. Now, it’s up to Robin to dodge the bullets—not to mention Aunt Mo—and get the killer in her sights. And then she needs to find a new gynecologist!
