amazon PD: 'To put it frankly, Diamond Lil was a beautiful short course to Hell.' Star of the Bowery saloon owned by powerful Gus Jordan, her latest lover, she likes nothing better than 'the white flame of her diamonds or the varied red flames of men's passions.' And seething downtown New York in the Naughty Nineties gives her plenty of both. It's all sport to her- jailed lovers, liquor, gambling- until handsome, mysterious Captain Cummings of the Salvation Army walks into her life. Preacher or no preacher, she wants that man more than any other.

As the foreword by Kathy Lette tells you, Mae West was an accomplished writer and astute businesswoman, so after that it's no surprise to wholeheartedly enjoy this novel.
Diamond Lil is a classic 'tart with a heart' gangster's moll with expensive tastes. When she finds out about her nightclub owner man's secret sex trade sending young, destitute women to South America, and falls in love with a punter everything has to change.
Great lusty fun, full of action and no padding, an easy and fantastic read. ( )
