Good Girls on Bad Drugs portrays the shattered lives of girls next door who became crack, coke, opioid, and heroin addicts, and who in their hustle for drugs became streetwalkers and internet escorts. In jailhouse journals and interviews, they confess with candor and courage to their sex work and drug crimes. Doomed by their addictions, most girls never recover, while others die young from AIDS, OD, or murder. Here a spotlight is shined upon 22 lives. One chapter, one life. And sometimes one death.
Living and dying on the fringes of society, four fatally overdosed, including Olivia, a 17-year-old internet escort whose death exposed a prostitution ring. Renee, Michelle, and Hope were murdered by johns. Liz was an accessory to two murders. Darlene, after her prison break, was hunted in two states. Heather robbed six banks in three states in six consecutive days. All their photos and interviews are included in these dramatic true crime stories about some guys' lust for sex and these girls' thirst for drugs..CONTENTS.Part One - The UNDERWORLD01 - MARIE - A Shadowy Figure Afoot Flashes "The Look"02 - LINDA - Mr Crack Introduces Ms Jane to Mr John.Part Two - The INTERNET ESCORTS03 - NORWICH and the Bad Bets on the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos04 - LADY LUCK - The Escorts' Guide to the Casinos05 - THE THREE GRACES - Outcasts on Outcalls06 - DEVON - Casino Escort of Last Resort07 - OLIVIA - The Grisly Death of the Girl from Griswold08 - KATRINA - Life as Hurricane09 - HOPE - Topless Dancer in a Bottomless Pit10 - LYNNE - The Crackhead Addicted to Prostitution.Part Three - The STREETWALKERS11 - NEW LONDON - A Whale of a Tale and a Tail of a Whale12 - COPS & RUBBERS - The Streetwalkers' Guide to the City13 - HEATHER - The Seriously Serial Bank Bandit14 - RENEE - A Connecticut Lawyer in Judge Arthur's Court15 - TRISH - Off to See the Wizard of Poz16 - JESSICA - The Prodigal Mom17 - DARLENE - Escape to Never-Never Land.Part Four - The HEROIN HEROINES18 - WILD and ANTIC WILLIMANTIC - The Riddle of the Syringe19 - JOE the JOHN - And Now a Word from Our Sponsors20 - LIZ - Woman Who Runs with the Werewolves21 - JENNIFER - Beauty and the Beasts22 - BONNIE - She Takes the High Road and He Takes the Low Road23 - AMBROSIA - Walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death.Part Five - ANOTHER WORLD24 - ROBIN - The Prosthetic Prostitute25 - SEX for HIGHER - A Eulogy.APPENDICESDocumentationFurther ReadingList of 41 PhotographsGlossary of Street Slang
