Lady by day… Pick-up by night
“Freddy moved toward her. He heard Ernestine laugh. He put his mouth on hers. He might as well have kissed a store dummy. ‘You’re a strange girl,’ he said.”
But Ernestine was stranger than Freddy thought. During the day, she was an alert and proper college student. At night, she liked to go out and pick up sailors. And shortly after Ernestine met Freddy, she disappeared. A few days later, her body was found, horribly mutilated.
Someone had taken a terrible revenge on a cheap dame who liked to tease men… and nice, easy-going Freddy was the only live witness to her murder!
