Abstract:

Ladystinger presents us with a mistress of the scam, but this prettiest grifter of them all may get herself double-looped by her own chicanery. Here is a tightly paced thriller about forty-eight fateful hours in the life of a very appealing and very resourceful con woman, who plies her trade in hotel bars among the unsuspecting marks of New Orleans and Jamaica. Maggie Rohrer makes her living picking up wealthy businessmen, doping their drinks, and later robbing the unconscious victims in their rooms. It's risk-free work, since these guys are usually very married, very embarrassed, and very unlikely to report the crime.
