Signed by author on title page with inscription. "To David, (the tall guy). The crime starts early in this one. Hope you like it. Vicki." First Edition with full number line. In protective mylar cover. Her name is Sherise Parlay. She's just dried out after a three-month bender, and she's decided that it's going to be her last. At thirty-six (looking thirty), she figures she's still got time to cash in on the promise of the good clean life that Miami can offer, still got time to get herself out of the dark bars and into the daylight. The problem for Sherri is that daylight turns out to be only another guide-light on her downward spiral.She lands a job (as regular as any) at a dry cleaning shop. And then she determines to land Payne, the boss's son. He seems legit--works long hours, even lives with his mother--and that's something new in Sherri's life. But there's nothing new about her reaction to him:sexual heat was always permanent in me, no escaping it. It takes her no time to tap the vein of his desire, but before long there's something else running from that vein, something subtle and insidious, something poisonous. Payne's not only a different kind of man from any she's ever known before, he's a different wrong kind of man. And with him--whether she wants to or not--she's becoming a different wrong kind of woman.Vicki Hendricks has written an unrelentingly hard-hitting tale of the almost unfathomably dark emotional current--the skewed passions, the twisted blind hopes, the pure cold-bloodedness--that runs under the surface of deceptively mundane lives. MIAMI PURITY is a stunning debut: fiction NOIR propelled inexorably into the nineties.
