Summary
Film producer and sexual adventurer James Ballard's life is transformed by a car crash. It introduces him to Dr. Helen Remington, as her husband is propelled through the windshield and into James' car, dead. No sooner are Helen and James both out of the hospital than they show up together at a late-night show staged by Vaughan, whose near-fatal accident left him obsessed with the erotic possibilities of crashes. Vaughan savors crash data and presides over a cult of like-minded fetishists, soon joined by James--comatose with lust and fascination--as he single-mindedly pursuing this new erotic linking of cars, sex, and injury
