Series: Johnny Liddell
(From the publisher):
In the dim room, a drum beat softly. Someone chanted a wild song. A line of women swayed...
The drumbeat deepened. A woman sprang from the line, dancing in wild abandon...
The woman's body undulated. Her motions became frantic. Wildly, she tore off her clothes...
The others followed. Nude, they danced to the frenzied drum...
This was New Orleans. Johnny Liddell was no tourist - he had come here to investigate a disappearance. The greeting he got - a beating by a goon squad, a double-cross from a gorgeous blonde, a session as target for someone's shooting practice - weren't exactly the keys to the city. But before he was through, Johnny was conducting his own tour - through a ring of blackmail, murder and the forced prostitution of some of the most beautiful society women in town.
