She Was A Girl With A Price Tag
The Violent Story Of A Handsome Heel
And The Women Who Loved Him

Johnnie’s kisses were hot on Josette’s mouth. Her body knew the beginning of a strange ecstasy. Then a voice inside her sounded a warning. She tried to fight free…

It happened at a summer dance. Josette Veech should have known she was asking for trouble when she went to Johnnie’s car. In that way she was like the rest of the Veeches – a shiftless family in a whistle-stop town – all headed for trouble. There was Kenny, a good-for-nothing bum. He lived off his sister, Mary. She, in turn, lived off other men. There was Ernie, a crooked railroad foreman. And pretty Jen who was burning life’s candle at both ends. Here is a vivid, compelling novel filled with violence and the lust for life!
