The best-selling novel about the call-girl racket

From the back:

“Mister, some girls are born to be wives—but I was born for THIS!”
She was beautiful, voluptuous, alluring. You might think she was an actress or a model. But the cops could tell you what she really was: a prostitute with a record, a call girl who liked her work.
She had known more men than she could remember. But there were a few she would never forget: her stepfather, who started her on her way; Ross Drego, a racketeer who was willing to pay any price for her; Mike Keyes, who prosecuted her in court—and who was the only man she ever loved.
