“Good clean fun. They should stick Sex, Blood and Rock ‘n’ Roll beside the plastic-wrapped cups in every hotel room. What’s more American than S&M and sexy serial killers? A novel that would make Roger Corman and Roman Polanski both drool.”–Jerry Stahl
“Hell hath no fury as a dominatrix scorned! Warner-Cohen directs a noir loop of 1990’s New York, a debut contoured by ironic seduction, rage and retribution.”–Arthur Nersesian
Midwest transplant Cassie Chambers revels in her early 1990s East Village on the cusp of gentrification lifestyle: a long-haired musician boyfriend, days employed at one of the hippest stores on St. Mark’s Place, nights clubbing at Coney Island, the Pyramid and other infamous New York hangouts. But, along with the fun, she is haunted by nightmares of violence and murder. After taking a job as a professional dominatrix, Cassie’s simmering hatred for other people–and other men in particular–begins to spiral out of control. When she is attacked by one of her clients and loses her unborn child, Cassie’s murderous fantasies become reality, as she begins to kill her clients in order to exact revenge for the death of her baby. In the graphic tradition of American Psycho, Sex, Blood and Rock ‘n’ Roll is a shocking and disturbing look inside the mind of a serial killer, and one novel you will never be able to forget for as long as you live.
A lifelong New Yorker, Kimberly Warner-Cohen secured her BFA in Creative Writing while working as a professional dominatrix, which is where the idea for Sex, Blood and Rock ‘n’ Roll germinated. These days she lives in New York with her fiance, three cats and two rats.
