Bar Girl. Y'know, you drink the bar whiskey, she drinks the colored water, she may if lucky get a percentage of your tab as her salary. Gained some resonances of Not Quite an A-class person, as well.

McGivern and Higgins are a good pair. TM

*********** What's a B-Girl? I'm not joking. I don't know. I'm reading a book now where a cop tells an underling to not mess with a girl's murder because she's a "B-Girl." The book is McGivern's BIG HEAT. Aptly named. It's hot. It's one of those books that's scary even before it gets rough. It's intense. I just know something bad is gonna happen and Bannion is gonna lose his cool. Got FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE in the queue for when I finish McGivern's.

WAHOOOOO! I'm in hardboiled hog heaven. ;-)
