(sfmaster would like to thank Blue Moon for sending a review copy)

Some years ago Blue Moon Books began publishing a series by author Stan Kent
about the character of Violetta Valery Cutrero; who possessed the power to
relive sexual experiences when she put on other people's shoes - both male
and female. This in turn led her to become the Avenging Angel, the serial
killer of serial killers. In previous installments ("Shoe Leather"; "Shoes
Your Weapon"; and "Violetta") she learns how she came to possess her power;
which has come down in her family since Roman times.

"Lucretia" is the fourth and possibly last volume in the series; which
brings up the critical question: does Erotica have to have a happy ending?
Most commercial Erotica usually has a happy ending - even non-consensual sex
novels have the slave happy in her chains. It's only when you read back to
the infamous De Sade do you find violent endings: "Juliette" and "Justine"
come to mind.

As "Lucretia" opens Violetta finally has the peace that she desires; living
with her lover Ellen and son Luc in California; until they purchase a pair
of old boots at a sale. Putting them on, Violetta discovers that they
belong to the most infamous killer of all time - Jack The Ripper - and she
has unleashed his spirit in San Francisco to kill again. However Violetta
has been betrayed by Ellen in a conspiracy with the Catholic Church which
wants to put an end to the Cutrero curse once and for all.

Given that Violetta already knows that the Church is against her, she should
have made herself vanish and change her name and assume a new identity. Had
she done that, of course, then there might not have been a fourth book.

If you have not read the previous books in the series, this one might be
confusing and distressing for the new reader. So if you want to read a
challenging work different than the usual Erotica, then this is the series
for you! Else the graphic violence and less than happy ending will put off
some readers.

With all those caveats; "Lucretia" is still a great book and an excellent
addition to any library - provided you have the other three volumes in the
series with it.
