Publisher's Summary

Erotic, drug-ridden, and violent, the story of Renata and her male and female lovers takes the listener into the heart of South Beach, Miami, where no one is surprised to find a friendly python or a "torture box" in the line of work for a hooker. Her search for love is strewn with body parts, but not through evil intent.

Florida Behind the Postcards

What is it about Florida that inspires so many writers? The mix of cultures? The combination of beauty and sleeze?

In Cruel Poetry, Hendricks has created the ultimate femme fatale, Renata, rather that the typical noir detective, she's ruining the lives of writers and academics.

Set in Miami’s gaudy vacationland and the haunts of the Everglades, Cruel Poetry is a gripping story of fatal attraction that captures the Florida behind the postcards.

Sex, crime, and whiplash plot twists had me hanging on every word.
