Description
Long before Desperate Housewives , there was Bedelia: pretty, ultra femme, and "adoring as a kitten." A perfect housekeeper and lover, she wants nothing more than to please her insecure new husband, who can't believe his luck. But is Bedelia too good to be true? A mysterious new neighbor turns out to be a detective on the trail of a "kitten with claws of steel"--a picture-perfect wife with a string of dead husbands in her wake. Caspary builds this tale to a peak of psychological suspense as her characters are trapped together by a blizzard. The true Bedelia, the woman who chose murder over a life on the street, reveals how she turns male fantasies of superiority into a deadly con. Femmes Fatales restores to print the best of women's writing in the classic pulp genres of the mid-20th century. From mystery to hard-boiled noir to taboo lesbian romance, these rediscovered queens of pulp offer subversive perspectives on a turbulent era. Enjoy the series: Bedelia ; Bunny Lake Is Missing ; By Cecile ; The G-String Murders ; The Girls in 3-B ; Laura ; The Man Who Loved His Wife ; Mother Finds a Body ; Now, Voyager ; Return to Lesbos ; Skyscraper ; Stranger on Lesbos ; Stella Dallas ; Women's Barracks .
