From the author of The Last Madam: A Life in the New Orleans Underworld comes an edgy novel, a racy gumbo of suspense, comedy, and sisters in crime.
Karen and Raynie are roommates hiding from sticky pasts. When vengeful gangsters and old boyfriends descend, Karen can't hide from the Miami thug who wants his money back, and Raynie's would-be rapist gets a gun and goes on a rampage. To top it off, Karen's boss, LaDonna, has a young lover with a new and dangerous idea. The three women unite to face the repercussions of the stolen money and the violence that ensues.
From Mamou to Miami to New Orleans, money and friendship are at the heart of Shoot the Money as it explores women's desires for big bucks. They see what money does to those who have it, lose it, pursue it, or steal it--and what happens when they try a little revenge on their rapid chase toward a better life.
They've got the money, they're smart, and they're daring. And they've got a gun. They could whip it out and shoot somebody, but that would be way too easy.
