Fiery vixen Silk Moreaux will do anything to get what she wants. Lying, stealing, and even killing don’t weigh on her conscience. But when a prophetess, Big Mama, warns her that she’ll come to a tragic end if she doesn’t change her wicked ways, Silk moves to a small town in Pennsylvania to reinvent herself.
With a sweet, loving, childlike temperament, Silk endears herself to the community—especially the men, who slyly compete for her affection, bearing gifts and offering money for just a little bit of her time. She becomes especially close with grieving widower Raymond Dixon, who expects a hefty insurance payout. When Raymond receives his windfall, Silk rushes him to the altar. But when the money begins to dwindle, she devises a scheme—involving a handsome hustler, Tate Simmons—to ensure that she maintains the comfortable lifestyle she’s become accustomed to. Together, Silk and Tate plot a callous murder that could be their biggest payday ever.
Can Silk’s greed ever be satisfied or will the karmic scale finally tip, resulting in her prophesied destruction?
