I LOVED this book. It puts you so up close and personal with the Everleigh Sisters that you'll wish you'd had the privilege of knowing them. Do you think your publisher would have nixed the title "Sex in the City"? Funny how anything is possible with some big stars and a little marketing!

Y'all (or youse) are too kind. Thank you...

THANK YOU for the reminder. I hear about so many books I want to read, and I'm constantly making lists and losing them.

And thanks too for reminding me about that "Whores of War" story. *snort*

I JUST bought the paperback on Saturday and am thoroughly enjoying it at the moment! Coincidence? I don't THINK SO!

The writing is so vivid that you can almost smell Chicago and picture the people walking along the streets. It makes me wonder if Karen used a time machine to do her research.

I have far too many Whores/Horrors moments in my life being a native Californian now living in North Carolina. It's always good for a giggle once you figure out what they're trying to say down here.
I'm flying to Alabama tomorrow. Off to Quail Ridge Books to pik up Sin in the Second City. Not only will it be great reading - but should cause quiet a stir within the small-town bible-belt thumpers I'll be visiting. Wheee!
