The Girl Who Was Possessed

36656035-4469758752_86731e159a_o[1]

A luscious witch practices sorcery and sins herself into an early grave

From the back:

The Voodoo she’d do would drive men wild. Her naked body glowed in the black candlelight as she danced with sensual abandon. She was a witch, a wanton. She played the devil, and she wound up dead! Homicide lieutenant Al Wheeler learns all about sorcery when he investigates the death of a beautiful hex-cat and smashes into a cult of weird worshipers who crave sensation, sin, and Satan.
