I agree with you on Miami Purity. You should try Voluntary Madness also, a neat updating of the Bonnie & Clyde story. What I like about Miami Purity (other than the terrific writing) is as psychotic as Payne turns out to be, he's no match for Cherie. I love the ending of this one. We're actually in the middle of interviewing Vicki for the next issue of Hardluck Stories. It should be a good one!
