I was just struck by a curious notion. Has anyone tried writing a HB story from the point of view of the Femme Fatale? Or perhaps better asked, Who has written HB from the POV of the femme fatale.

************* Turned out to be an excellent question. Bottom line answer was that practically zip has been written from the femme fatale point of view. The truly bad girl that triumphs appears to not make a good protagonist. The closest I can make is Hendricks's IGUANA LOVE. Although she puts it to the guy in a grand way in the end, it is revealed that there is a lot more strife in the life of this femme fatale as what might earlier been imagined.

Great question!
