From the Files of Mighty Mo Cadence: "Assumption Blues"
Hollywood, 1949: Detective Matt "Mighty Mo" Cadence, scraping rock bottom and on the routine trail of a wayward husband, runs headlong into an unexpected but delicious challenge - the formidable, mysterious, sizzling silver-screen ingenue, Cassie Blue.
". . . lips perfectly red, and if I’d been a Tex Avery cartoon, the cut of her dress would have pulled out my eyes. And hers -- intense, gorgeous, cobalt steel. Those eyes were clamped hard on mine as she floated forward. The air around her seemed to step out of the way and bow. Prettier women? Maybe. Sexier women? Here and there. Never both in the same woman. She knew it. They always do.
“What’s the matter, Mr. Cadence? Something got ahold of your tongue?”

“Heh. Hang on, lady; if it’s going to get this saccharine, I need a good mixer.”
[Cadence gulps down a shot.]
“Now, do tell me more about my manly jawline. Miss –“
“’Cassie,’ dear; my friends call me ‘Cassie.’ Surely a man of vision can appreciate –“
“Vision, eh? I admit I enjoy this view, doll, but you can straighten up any time. It ain’t likely you’re planning to cash the checks you’re dangling in front of me.”
“Mmm; have it your way, detective. I had so hoped we’d be good friends.”
