Book Description

9 April 2007
SEX FOR SALE!


We are the savage sisterhood of 1950s crime. Society tells us to be "good girls", marry as virgins and raise up a mess of kids. We say, "Wise up!" We know the facts of life that you've got to use what you've got to get ahead. Men are after us for one thing only, SEX -- and they must pay for their pleasures. Don't be fooled by our soft words and sweet smiles; with us, the meter is always running. Anyone gets in our way, man, woman, or child, we get rid of them - Permanently!


FATAL FEMMES


Wives, mothers, sweethearts, daughters any of us can and will turn killer in a heartbeat. Among us are dope-crazed addicts, homicidal housewives, vicious blackmailers, bone-crushing Amazons, axe-murderesses, switchblade-wielding gang girls, and many more. These are our stories. The trouble is, no matter how beautiful, cunning and deadly we are, our final destination is a prison cell or death chamber. But we sure look good getting there!

Product Description

Review

"HELLCATS, VIXENS AND VICE DOLLS is a fetish feast. Lusty lasses looking to light their Luckies. Bettie Page's freaky first cousin, the one she only sees during the summer and just got out of Juvie. Bound to give you an unbathed bullet-bra boner, va-va-Van Doren style!" -- Michael Benson, author of HOOKED UP FOR MURDER: First You Party, Then You Die

"In Hellcats, Vixens, & Vice Dolls, David Jacobs, noted true crime author of The Mafia's Greatest Hits and Sex Sadists: From The Files Of True Detective Magazine, poses the question, "Which is the deadlier of the species, the female or the male?" in his new collection of true crime tales of mid-century mayhem, USA.


"And what he unearths is an estrogen-fueled fetish feast of wasted lives, wanton sex and senseless violence. Featured are fifty femme fatales from the 1950s so hardboiled that their reckless exploits will leave any true crime reader with the sensation of being worked over with a sack of nickels!"
-- NY Book Time

5.0 out of 5 stars The seduction of the NOT SO innocent. 16 Nov 2007
By Jack
Format:Paperback
Murder, Mayhem, Drugs and Seduction - these are the tools (and pains) of the trade for these tragic, and sometimes evil, women.

The stories uncovered in HELLCATS, VIXENS & VICE DOLLS are true, and remind the reader of what a slippery-slope it is when we only give into our base passions - as these women did - following their weaknesses to broken hearts, prison, or the gas chamber,

This book receives my highest recommendation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Innocence lost and Hatred found!!! 16 Nov 2007
By Steve
Format:Paperback
These ***TRUE*** stories of some of the most wild and deranged women of the 1950's are collected from the scandal rags of the day into one rip-roaring new edition!!!
While many people assume that criminals only come from the male side of evolution, we are reminded, once again, that there was an EVE to the ADAM, and some of her descendants must be among these sultry deviants.

An outstanding collection of a different slice of TRUE CRIME - a must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Deadlier than the male! 3 Nov 2007
By Louis
Format:Paperback
Venture back to the golden age of crime to meet the sex-crazed B-girls, murderous mob molls, sinister spinsters, and doped-up dames with this over-the-top testament to the immutable rule: CRIME DOES NOT PAY! Each story is 100% true and truly unforgettable - like the housewife who cut off her husband's head with a rusty saw because of his snoring. If your looking for a great read with fifties-style fast and snappy writing, well, this little number is for you!

Format:Paperback
Hide your bankroll, slide yourself into a 57 Chevy and prepare for a nonstop wild ride into the go-go world of fifties' kink and crime. The cars are big, the music swings and the babes come with a price on their pretty little heads.

Checking their makeup in the rearview mirror while driving a fleeing getaway car or pistol whipping some hapless mug without even chipping a blood red fingernail, these desperate dames terrified and thrilled the rock `n roll generation with their true life tales of crime and heartache which have more twists than Dead Man's Curve.

Hellcats, Vixens and Vice Dolls is fueled with blood and high octane leaded gas... and does it go! Fifty femme fatales, with lust in their eyes and larceny in their hearts, race down easy street in a cloud of dime-store perfume and gunsmoke, looking for love, smack, and that one big score. Do yourself a favor and take the ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Girls Done Right! 16 May 2007
By S. Michael Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bad girls and tough dames have always been a cornerstone of crime drama both in print and on the big screen. While that truth has held fast throughout the years, never were the girls so gritty and dangerous as they were in the fifties, and this book is living proof of that.

This collection of stories ripped right of the scandal rags of the fifties is sure to please any fan of the hardcore sleaze writing that most modern authors can only attempt to emulate. A must read, to say the least.
