[nice copy, as-new with no discernible wear; jacket similarly nice, only slight blemish being some light creasing to the rear flap]. "In this unusual autobiographical work, imprisoned paraphiliac Ronald Keyes reveals the psychological and societal factors that contributed to his masochistic tendencies and criminal life." Under the spell of his dominatrix "Connie," who could only achieve orgasm by committing crimes, the author participated in nearly two dozen armed robberies in the Baltimore area during a two-month period in 1984 -- until, "as the final act of their sadomasochistic relationship," Connie turned him in to the cops. (Thanks, mistress!) "Caught and imprisoned, Keyes sought to understand the nature of his sexual drives. What led a successful businessman with a wife and child to abandon his family, take up with a prostitute, and go on a bizarre crime spree that wrecked his life?" This book, I guess, is the answer. (Sounds to me like just an extreme manifestation of the same old story -- i.e., guy-with-brains-in-pants.)
