"He swallowed, then leaned forward and carefully stripped away the wrapping paper. He then eased open the lid of the cardboard box, and stared inside. It was half full of soil to give it some weight, and on the top of the earth lay a note.

75% of this book was just torture scene after torture scene between a sadist, a pain slut and an idiot. None of it was even remotely arousing or sexy, but just cringeworthy and painful to read and I skimmed through most of it. The rest consisted of boring dialogues, repetitive explanations and a plot that hasn't moved any forward since the last book. I really don't care about any of the characters enough for me to find out neither what's gonna happen to them, nor to continue with this series, and that's why I call it quits here.
