Della Banners was born into poverty. It had been a hard life up in the hills. But she discovered early that a girl with her figure could get things from men. So when she ran away to the city, she was ready to try anything. That’s when she met Jack. Jack immediately sized up her assets and suggested that she belonged in sales. His line of business is selling roofs and siding, but to do it right, he needs someone to find the prospects. That’s where Della comes in.


Pretty soon she finds she has a knack for finding new customers, and a better knack for conning them into buying jobs they don’t really need. Della and Jack are on their way to success. The only trouble is, Jack is married, and his wife is less than understanding. Because Della wants it all—the money, the new car, the nice clothes—and Jack. And heaven help anyone who gets in her way.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a fine novel, sleaze paperback or literary. A good number of Hitt motifs or thematic set-ups are in this book ...mainly how difficult it was for a woman not to have to resort to using her body and sexuality to get ahead in life." -Michael Hemmingson, Those Sexy Vintage Sleaze Books"A doom-laden, blue-collar soap opera... heavy-duty noir on par with David Goodis, Gil Brewer, and the best of the classical masters."-Cullen Gallagher, Pulp Serenade "His women were too hot to handle, ex-virgins, frigid wives, sin dolls, wayward girls, torrid cheats, easy women, frustrated females, inflamed dames and, most often, trapped. They used what they had to use to make a buck-limited opportunities left them few other choices. They were duped and deceived, approached and abandoned."-Brian Ritt, Rough Edges
