Review of James M. Cain The Cocktail Waitress
Femme Fatale point of view
I was so excited the day this book arrived in the mail and I was not disappointed one bit.The lost novel by James M. Cain and i'm so glad Hard Case Crime found it.
The story is told in first person in the voice of Joan a widow with a child trying to make ends meet. She gets a job as a cocktail waitress but then finds the seedy side of the job. Does she go with what would be best for her and her child or does she fall under the spell of desire?
The book is a very intriguing as you follow this Femme Fatale down her road of lust,money, and plenty of twist. The chapters are short and it keeps you panting to find out what happens next.
This book will be kept on my shelf in the category of all time favorites Hard Case Crimes is filling up my wish list on Amazon.
