Book description

Femme fatale. French for "deadly woman". You hear the term a lot these days, usually in connection with noir fiction and film noir. But they're not just products of literature, film, the folklore of nearly every culture. They exist in modern society, too. The genuine fe m mes fatale you hear about now and then are every bit as evil as the fictional variety. Yet what sets them apart is that they're the failures, the ones who for one reason or another got caught.

For every one of those, there must be several times as many who get away with their destructive crimes... In the thirty years the Nameless Detective been a private investigator, he has never once had the misfortune to cross paths with this type of seductress... but in Femme he'll meet Cory Beckett, a deadly woman who has brought some new angles to the species. Newand terrible.
