Series: Seven Deadly Sins

Summary (From the publisher):

The first volume in the Seven Deadly Sins series, Speaking of Lust is a collection of oustanding short stories on that exceedingly deadly sin known as lust. From James W. Hall's voyeuristic Fulbright fellow at a Jesuit university in Bilbao, Spain, obsessed with an exotic fifteen-year-old girl to Block's four characters--a soldier, a policeman, a doctor, and a priest--who share labyrinthine tales of passion and murder at a weekly bridge game, these stories are as beguiling as they are clever.

Speaking of Lust is a compelling anthology that will entertain and amaze readers with the power of desire raised to sinful proportions.
