Plenty of action and a memorable Brat who uses her considerable charms To Get Her Way get her way this one was never made into a this one was never made into a because it has everything Robbery murder double crosses car chases boat chases gun fights hot babes and hunky guys The title is one of those misleading Gold Medal marketing ploys common in the 50s Evis is no brat but she is all femme fatale going at things ike a blitzkrieg in tight nylons The novel starts right in the middle of the action with Lee Sullivan showing up ate for the robbery planned by his wife Evis
