Heat of the Moment
by Steven Axelrod
He was a good teacher—until his student became his master.
Mike Hamlin is a regular guy with a nice wife and good job teaching at a prestigious private school. His future looks bright, if predictable—until he does the one thing no teacher should even think about.
When Mike finds himself helpless against the advances of an underage sexpot, he is racked by guilt. Soon, however, the well-meaning teacher discovers that statutory rape is the least of his problems. Susan Bishop, it turns out, is a sociopath, and when she's sure she has her teacher where she wants him, his criminal career begins in earnest.
But there’s someone else out there, a serial snuff-film maker who calls himself the Auteur, and fate has just drawn Susan Bishop into his orbit.
Part crime story, part noir nightmare, this twisted thrill ride will have you covering your eyes—and peeking through your fingers.
