Publisher's Summary

The "modern noir masterpiece" is now back in print!
Hot and scrappy Sherri Parlay gives up her life of depravity, and with best intentions, finds a respectable job as a dry cleaner in hopes for a decent future. But nature and nurture plot against her when she meets the beautiful, tortured, and rich young Payne, who tempts her with the love and life she never thought possible. Even Brenda, Payne's domineering mother, can't keep the lovers apart when Sherri's animal passions take control.
Unfortunately, Payne is not only a different kind of man from those in Sherri's past, he's worse than any on her list of sordid affairs. Twisted psychology and a pure heart lead her into the dark realm of disillusionment and crime, where she reaches into her deepest reserves for the strength to survive.
This contemporary noir novel is reminiscent of James M. Cain's The Postman Always Rings Twice, with a heavy dose of sexual realism that Cain might have enjoyed if his times would have allowed.

Bad Girl Trying to Be Good

Hendricks is literary noir at its best. I remember discovering her first stories in the 90s and literally screaming in my bed as turned the penultimate page.

In this book we get a bad girl trying to clean up her life, but she falls in with the wrong--maybe the worst possible--man.

Everything I look for in a crime novel is here--bad girls, dangerous men, damaged heroes, mystery, and sex.
