DOWN IN THE GUTTER LIKE ME by Stephen A North is nothing like his previous work. Apparently, the author has decide to try his hand in erotica. The sex scenes aren't to over-the-top, but the lack of story is disappointing.
In fact, this reads more like fan-fic written by a guy with a threesome fantasy than anything else. Maybe if the main character had been a serial killer or something, anything to give depth to this novella, there would've been more suspense.
If this is the direction North is headed with his writing, he should consider using a pen name or risk alienating some of his fan base.
