FROM THE PUBLISHER - 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 guidelight on her downward spiral. Bookseller Inventory # 28002

About this title


Hitting bottom for the last time, Miami exotic dancer Sherry Parlay breaks away from the business, takes a job at a dry cleaner, and begins a relationship with a man that pushes her most violent buttons. 75,000 first printing. $60,000 ad/promo. Tour.

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.
