Lust, Violence And Greed In The Deep South

From the back

She Could Break Any Man

Andy Douglas knew Bradley, the Florida fruit baron, would stop at nothing to gain control of his orange grove. So when Bradley’s daughter Marcia made a play for him, Andy resisted.

But Marcia was a woman who knew how to break a man — completely. And when she asked Andy to take her to a Miami luxury hotel, he could give only one answer — even if it meant losing everything he cared about.

A Reckless Blonde In A Wide-Open Town

From the back:

Anything Goes

That was Mollie Binning’s motto in life. At 13 she was a blonde trouble maker in Mrs. Baker’s School for Young Ladies. At 15 she had become a lush package. At 16, she had already married two men and left them both. By the time she was 18 she knew what she wanted out of life. And what she wanted was Mike Zelsmith fabulously successful Hollywood producer. Before she was finished with him his marriage went on the rocks. And in the stormy interlude that followed she loved and schemed her way to stardom!

The film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang features a series of pulp mystery novels (and a movie based on them) as a significant piece of the plot. Legendary pulp cover artist Robert McGinnis was brought in to paint covers for some of these fake books.
