Desiree Blanc wants to be a gun-moll. Born into poverty in rural northern Mississippi, Dorothy Jellnick grew into an ash-blonde beauty. Everyone told her to go to Hollywood, show the movie people a real southern belle. She made it as far as Bourbon Street, New Orleans, where she became Desiree Blanc, a white-hot stripper at Hotsy Jazz Club. Determined to never be poor again, Desiree discovers a short cut to big money – crime. It is the summer of 1947.
As the story opens, Desiree and her hoodlum boyfriend rob a tourist from Kansas, leaving the man in his skivvies on a rural highway just outside New Orleans. More crimes and more money follows. The white-hot beauty surrenders to avarice – the unreasonably strong desire to obtain and keep the money – in a dangerous and deadly game.
This is a classic noir mystery with a femme fatale, arrogant criminals, La Cosa Nostra mobsters and an army veteran wounded at The Battle of the Bulge whose love for Desiree is her only chance. $0.99 on Kindle.
