A twisty, pulp noir classic — doubling down on Double Indemnity — back in print for the first time in over 60 years.
Cleo McGowan is all of a man’s desires wrapped in a tight fitting dress…she’s also greedy, fiendish and sexually insatiable. Her older husband Clifton hires door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman Danny Slick to seduce her and create the grounds for a clean divorce. Meanwhile, Cleo wants Danny to kill Clifton, her brutal and rich spouse, so they can get all of his money and run off together. Just another sinfully sunny day in Southern California…James L. Rubel / Crime Fiction
