(From the publisher):
Someone was in my room. I pushed the door open with my foot. There she was. Curled up in the only easy chair in the place, wearing a pair of very tight black pants, a see-through pink blouse and one of those sly baby faces full of wonder and wickedness.
We stared at each other for a moment. Then I looked down. She had her hands in her lap and the barrel of a small, efficient revolver was tilted up, aimed straight at my breastbone.
"Shut the door," she said.
I shut the door.
Suddenly she tossed the gun on the bed and stretched out against the pillows. "My name's Sheila," she said in a sofy, lazy voice. "I brought the gun for you. I want you to kill somebody."
