          Yeah! Deadly Pleasures is a winner!

Hi Friends,
I want you to know that Deadly Pleasures has been selected as one of the top 100 Indie Books of 2012. It is thanks to all of you who have purchased the book and given me fabulous reviews. Please check the professional reviews below.  

"Firmin writes more like a seasoned storyteller than a debut novelist,...Deadly Pleasures  is recommended for readers who like to be both titillated and entertained. Ones certainly hopes that the author, an iUniverse Rising Star, has more naughty novels up her sleeves." Jill Allen, Clarion Reviews. (Five star review)

"Firmin's first novel is a first-rate murder mystery...swiftly paced tale of lust, seduction, duplicity and horror, Firmin's debut easily keeps the pages turning." Kirkus Reviews

"Sex and the City meets James Patterson in this tale of friendship that's peppered with enough thriller action to make Deadly Pleasures a solid guilty pleasure." Blueink Reviews

Deadly Pleasures doesn't rely on gimmicks. Firmin writes with authority. Fully developed characters keep the story moving. -Reviewed by Doris Parmett, National Best-selling author of Lies, Risk, and 11 other novels.

"There is a nice balance between romance and mystery making this a great read. I always enjoy a good mystery and I am looking forward to more of Firmin's books as this is one of the best mysteries I have read!" -Kristie from Readers Favorite

"While I've been struck by her abundant humor, I am a little ill at ease, how Mary Firmin, most evidently a woman, managed to acquire such intimate details of America's deepest abysmal levels of human depravity. If you are excited by murder, mutilations, SM or practically any other sign of human degeneracy, then this book is for you." -Stan Law

"A detective story with some powerful sado-masochism, Deadly Pleasures is set in the Hollywood lifestyle complete with wealth, yachts, trips to Catalina. It is filled with hot guys and hungry women. There's love, even love that fulfills and there is lots of infidelity. Best of all, it's well written. The mystery holds your attention, the characters matter, and the pages keep turning along with the twisting clues." -Kenneth A. Weene

Men don't let the cover fool you check out the two reviews above that are from men! It's a great murder mystery that men and women both can enjoy! Get yourself a copy today! Amazon, Kindle, B&N

Best Regards,
Mary Firmin
