Originally published in 1952, this is the first eBook publication of Junkie!
BY DAY, DONNA WEBB WAS A PART-TIME SECRETARY. BY NIGHT SHE WAS A FULL-TIME PLAYGIRL!
This is early 50's pulp noir at its finest. Jonathan Craig leads you through alleyways and seamy nightclubs to tell the tale of Steve Harper's quest for hot sex, cool jazz, and the solution to a cold murder case. Plenty of sleaze, sin, sax and cigarettes. This is hot reading. This...is Junkie!
FROM THE BOOK:
"How long ago was that?" he asked. In the glow of the match her face seemed almost too angelic to be real. An angelic call-girl, he thought.
"About a year ago," she told him. But it seems longer.
"How'd it all begin, Kathy?" he asked suddenly.
She glanced at him quickly, then away. "They always ask that," she said softly. "Always."
"I'm sorry," Steve said, meaning it.
She pursed her full lips and blew smoke out slowly, gazing toward the river.
"There was a man, of course," she said. "There always is."
