Ethel Whitehead learns there's only one way for a woman to survive in a man's world : be as tempting as a cupcake and as tough as a 75-cent steak.

When the racketeer murders his rival in Ethel's swanky living room, she flees a sure murder rap, right back to the poverty she thought she had escaped. And this time there may not be a man to pick up the pieces of her shattered life.--Container
