About this title


“Sex and murder, sunny places and shady people—Miami Purity is a modern noir masterpiece.”—Michael Connelly

Miami Purity is the toughest, sexiest, most original debut noir novel ever written. . . . Gripping, super-sexy, and unforgettably raw.”—Lauren Henderson

“Vicki Hendricks has been called the ‘Queen of Noir,’ and after reading Miami Purity you’ll know why.”—Timothy Lockhart, The Virginian-Pilot

A modern, feminist take on James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice.

Vicki Hendricks is the Edgar Award–nominated author of Cruel Poetry (Serpent’s Tail). She lives in Florida.

From the Inside Flap:

Sherise Parlay thinks she's found a good thing in Payne, her boss's son, who's so legit he even lives with his mother. But Payne may just turn out to be a different kind of wrong man. And no sooner has he taken Sherise as a lover than he's turning her into his accomplice--in a crime spree that only begins with murder. "A cracked hymn to American trash culture."--New York Times Book Review.
