Joanna has a good-looking man chained in her basement, and she is prepared to torture him. She has a great figure, which she uses to lure men to their doom. This particular person had taken a little girl and Joanna needed to find her. The man did not look comfortable when he saw the array of hacksaws, hammers, pick axes, and a metal poker warming on a burner. She had done this lots of times and did not expect any problems with this guy.

After a little prodding with the hot poker and judicious use of a chain saw, he told her where the girl was. After what he planned to do to her, Joanna was quite ready to kill him. She had been sexually abused by her father, and he was her first victim, and she found that she had a mission in her life – exacting retribution against every male sex molester in town. She enjoyed seeing them scream and rant as she worked on them, which helped her to keep going. The court system did not give them the punishment they deserved, so Joanna made up for that deficiency by dishing out her own brand of justice.

“Well, hello, Sugar…” is a great opening to Joanna that immediately captured my attention. DM Wolfenden wastes no time getting into the gruesome business of torture. Joanna was eliminating another predatory sex vermin, a nasty business, but that did not mean she could not enjoy her work. Joanna is a story women can relate to and understand what drove Joanna. The graphic torture narrative might be off-putting for some, but it is well written and in context without being gratuitous. A great read, but not something you want to pick up before going to bed.
