First Sentence
The dark side of my mind took control on one of those slippery-hot Miami nights about a year ago, the start of my unraveling, my spin into psychosis and murder. Read the first page

I read Miami Purity when it first came out and have been waiting patiently for Hendricks' next book. I'm waiting for Iguana Love to arrive in my mailbox now.
Writers tell us lies about life because publishers pay them to do so. If you run a search on my name here, you'll see why I think that. Every once in a while, quite possibly by mistake, the filter fails and somebody honest slips through. We've got Vicki Hendricks among us now, and I hope she lasts a good long while and writes many more books like this one.
This is a book that lets you see into a woman's head the way some rare male writers occasionally let you see into the heads of men, without wallpapering the set with fairy tales. The woman in the story will scare you, and she should.
Ms. Hendricks, if you read this: Well done!

I had never read a fiction noir before. Reading this book has made me want to read more fiction noir. True, this is not a book for everyone. The language is sharp. The dialogues are crisp and raw. The story is dark yet plausible.
I read the book in one sitting. Detractors may wish to trash this book as a jerk-off companion, but this book is about dark, perverse and depraved human passions, lust and lies.

This book leaves you wondering what will happen next. You really feel Sherri's struggles with overcoming the mortal fact that she is, and always will be a "bad girl". My opinions of the characters were constantly changing. However, must Sherri have sex on every other page! It takes your interest somewhere else entirely.

While you might find fault with this zippy and startling book, you cannot afford to miss it if you're the least bit interested in this genre. Tough guys doing the same thing become famous and beloved characters, but it seems this sexy, ballsy female heroine upsets people. Why? Read it and see. No one writes tough-girl dialogue as well as Hendricks. Perversion? Sure...the main character certainly is--she uses people...she uses men as sex objects. I found her unforgettable and the writing equal to any author in this genre. The fact that she repulses so many readers only shows how powerful and unnnerving this anti-heroine is....

I read Vicki Hendricks' Miami Purity in one sitting--twice. No female in America even gets close to handling noir fiction the way Hendricks does--this is unblinking, unsquinting, truth-telling wrapped in a terrific story. The character of Sherri Parlay has no equal, and when it comes to writing about sex and obession, either does Hendricks! Finally. This book is liberated and liberating. I can't wait to read her next book, Iguana Love.
