Crimes and Passion Delivers Twisting Tale of Sensuality and Suspense
Greenwich, CT, December 10, 2020 — Someone is aware of seductive socialite Elizabeth Knoebel’s sexual transgressions — and they clearly do not like it.
In the gripping, psychological thriller Crimes and Passion from Jeffrey S. Stephens, author of the popular Jordan Sandor series, the murder of a beautiful, wealthy and very married socialite thrusts affluent Fairfield County, Connecticut, into the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Enter Lieutenant Robbie Whyte, a former New York City cop assigned to the investigation. Whyte understands that appearances are often far removed from reality, and this certainly proves to be true in the case of Elizabeth Knoebel, who Whyte discovers was under the care of psychotherapist Dr. Randi Conway.
When Whyte finds Elizabeth’s juicy journal, which she aptly titled Sexual Rites, he uncovers explicit details of her erotic adventures with various men, many of whom may have been the husbands of the women in her therapy group. Elizabeth was a predator bent on seducing and, in some instances, humiliating these men, obsessed with a perverse mission that Whyte is convinced was the motive for her murder.
The secrets of Crimes and Passion are peeled away one layer at a time as readers meet an assortment of Dr. Conway’s patients — one of whom may have been Elizabeth’s killer. With Dr. Conway unwilling to betray Elizabeth’s confidences, Whyte’s investigation becomes increasingly complicated, while the therapist faces a mounting sense of danger as Whyte gets closer to solving this mystery — and to the doctor herself.
The pacing of the story mirrors Whyte’s frantic search for the truth, while readers keep guessing as each revelation unfolds. Along the way, there are intimate glimpses into the dynamics that cause marriages to succeed, to fail or sometimes, to end in tragedy.
Author Jeffrey S. Stephens lives in Greenwich, Connecticut. He is also the author of the Jordan Sandor espionage thrillers, beginning with Targets of Deception and, most recently, Rogue Mission. Crimes and Passion is the first in a planned series featuring Lieutenant Robbie Whyte.
