Without looking back, casting a bad marriage and going-nowhere stage career behind her, forty-something Sheila Mackenzie, nee Ryan, took a lover, discovered crime, embraced danger, and reinvented herself under an alias in a.k.a. Sheila Doyle. Tough, wild, and sexy, she returns for another excursion into a steamy south Florida underworld of Orthodox Jewish hit men and lesbian pimps in this hard-boiled, hotly paced sequel. Sheila and Bobby Squared, her devilishly magnetic Cherokee from North Carolina who dances in strip clubs when he’s not running guns or drugs, again hitch up with Bobby’s shady business partner Sol Bilstein, as well as a flamboyantly gay black hairdresser, Sampson de la Plaine (a.k.a. Reggie Johnson)—this time for a heist that very quickly goes bad, deadly, and dangerous. Indeed, the ruthless and menacing Angela Scarpetti—also known as Angel Scot or, more familiarly, the White Witch—and Neanderthal hit man Billy the Bear prove to be foe enough to transform the recklessly passionate Sheila Doyle into a harder, colder, more formidable Sheila Weinstein.

Operating under still another name, that naughty 48-year-old Sheila Ryan (A.K.A. Sheila Doyle, 2002) continues to fuel the same adolescent fantasies.
