The Flaming Corsage
The Flaming Corsage opens with a scene of carnage which tabloids will later call "The Love Nest Killings of 1908." The mystery of this massacre will not come fully unraveled until destiny joins the novel's principle characters, Katrina Taylor and Edwad Daugherty. Edward is a man destined to greatness as a playwright. Katrina is a beautiful and seductive woman with complex attitudes toward life and love. Theirs is a passionate attachment from the first. But when death strikes close to her family in a cataclysmic hotel fire, the marriage changes into something else altogether. By award-winning author.
