Publisher Comments:

What happens when beautiful, twenty-year-old petty thief and ex-stripper Mink LaRue finds out she's a dead ringer for the age-progressed photo of the missing oil heiress Sable Dominion?

Harlem-born Mink LaRue makes a beeline to Dallas, Texas, pretending to be the Dominion's long-lost daughter, Sable. She knows she's hit the jackpot when she and her super ghetto partner in crime, Bowlegged Bunni, are admitted into the Dominion's 20-room mansion, complete with all the trimmings of a luxurious family estate. But it's not long before Mink's newfound siblings grow suspicious of the ghetto princess, who has a rap sheet a mile long. If Mink is to worm her way into their pockets and get her hands on their dough, then she must tell enough lies to convince everyone that she really is the precious daughter who was stolen from their fold. But with a DNA test standing between her and a hefty inheritance, how long can Mink's bag of lies keep her rolling in the Dominion's riches?

Review:

"The prolific 'queen of urban erotica' (Natural Born Liar) continues the saga of Harlem 'con-mami' Mink LaRue in an irrepressible melding of Shakespearean-style mistaken-identity and separated-at-birth antics with J.R. Ewing — like backstabbing and blackmailing. This time Mink is working a scam with Philly grifter Dy-Nasty to claim a stake in the oil fortune of Viceroy Dominion. Mink boasts that grifting is her 'favorite pastime,' but when she returns home for the funeral of the cold-hearted mom who once tried to kill her, she meets a twin she didn't know she had, who brings her into dangerous proximity to her archrival. Everyone around Mink has secrets, and enemies anxious to reveal them — including Viceroy, the cutthroat patriarch, who awakens from a coma to discover the devious plans of his cheating wife, Selah; scandal-scarred son Barron; and business rival Rodney. Cons, identity crises, and X-rated sex play out at a dizzying pace, and Noire (Sexy Little Liar) gently skewers the raggedy band of horny strivers. An explosive finale suggests that Viceroy's revenge will be sweet. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
