Summary
  • "Strange Embrace: They say the show must go on but in the case of Broadway's next sensation, A Touch of Squalor, someone's out to make sure the show never opens. And when threats don't do the trick, a straight razor to the throat just might."--Jacket flap
  • "69 Barrow Street: Greenwich Village: home to every form of depravity and perversion known to man or woman. It's on the streets of the Village that Ralph met Stella but what started as a love affair between a painter and his seductive muse has become torment as he's found himself drawn into her world of cruel pleasures. It is a tinderbox of hatred and desire and when beautiful Susan Rivers moves into their apartment building, tempting Ralph and Stella both, it's set to ignite."--Jacket flap
