Synopsis

"Angie's Story is a winner --I was enthralled from beginning to end." Rosemary Daniell, author of Fatal Flowers: On Sin, Sex and Suicide in the Deep South.
"Weintz is a serious talent." Wythe Walker, former Publisher of Arkansas Business and the New Mexico Business Weekly.
This is the unsettling, brutal tale of Angie Ferguson, a 38-year-old prostitute who works in Little Rock, Arkansas, home to conservative businessmen, fundamentalist church-goers, and high-profile political figures, many of whom are also Angie’s clients.
For Angie there’s no Hollywood ending, like in the movie Pretty Woman. Angie lives in the shadowy underworld of prostitution, sex addiction, escort services, drug and alcohol addiction, and violence. I know something about this world. While this is a work of fiction, Angie’s Story also draws on my personal experience. In 1999, I—a divorced and very conflicted Little Rock businessman—married a prostitute in the hope of “saving her.” My own story ended tragically, but at least I’m still here to tell a version of it. Others—in real life and in “Angie’s” life—weren’t so lucky.

Their boss, Gloria, a “whore-mistress … with bleached blonde hair” who likes to remind the talent that “the customer comes first,” wears a “turquoise jumper that plunges in the front, exposing most of her double-D breasts that stand out like vine-ripened Big Boy cantaloupes.” Weintz’s writing is ...
