I was wearing a mini skirt with a tight blouse, a white lace bra and matching white lace panties. I undid my skirt and dropped it to the floor. I unbuttoned my blouse and it also fell to the floor. I was standing in my bra and panties and heels. Victoria then reached over and in an almost robotic manner took off my bra and threw it to the floor, and pulled my panties down to my ankles and had me kick them off, landing to the right of me on the floor next to my other clothes. I felt completely vulnerable and exposed as I stood before her naked. I knew Victoria loved me feeling this way, which is probably why she had me do it in the first place as soon as I stepped foot inside her house. She turned me around and pulled the belt she had on around her waist off and tied it around my wrists behind my back. Then, she picked up a ball gag from the nearby table and forced it into my mouth and fastened it behind my head. Victoria then walked me over to a small door under her stairway, grabbed me from behind my head and took a handful of my hair and threw me through the small doorway. I landed on my hands and knees in the dark and pleaded with her as she closed the door and locked it with only me inside the dark small room. It was silent. I then heard her heels clacking again on the hardwood floor as she walked to the front door, opened it, closed it and locked it behind her. Then I heard her start her car and minutes later, drive away. So, here I was naked, bound and gagged locked in a dark little room all alone. I was terrified. 1. Language: English.

A Murder Scene Where Nothing Is as It SeemsBrandy witnesses a murder at a drive thru joint with the unlikely name of Cluck It: Chicken by the Bucket. And then it turns out nothing at the scene’s what it seems, or at any rate nobody’s who they seem. Seems Cluck It is not just a place to clog your arteries but also a transgender hangout. And with that discovery, you know you're in New Orleans.The Local New Orleans Color Never Stops Brandy’s complex Irish Channel family develops the kind of problem that is a lot more fun on the page than in real life. What to do when your sister gets pregnant with one of the next-door twins, but she doesn't know which twin? (Be glad it's Brandy’s problem, not yours.)She also finds a mysterious box of valuable jewelry under her closet floor, becomes the unofficial caretaker of the Tarot reader across the street who knows the future but can never predict when she’s going to get so drunk she’s going to fall into her own bushes, and develops a strong suspicion about one of her other neighbors, all the while juggling the two Romeos.Luckily, Brandy Is Better at Solving Mysteries Than She Is at Wrangling Her Boyfriends The listener can rest assured she’s eventually, and in fine style, going to weave together the myriad mysterious strands that confound the police (who happen to count Boy Friend #1 among their ranks) and present them the solution with all the panache of an old-style detective like Hercule Poirot, yet none of the pretension. You can almost hear her wondering, “Did I do that?”Fans of cozy mysteries and chick lit heroines will delight in Brandy’s flat-out lovability and Mooney’s almost offhand yet spot-on (and often hilarious) observations of everyday New Orleans life. If you like contemporary stylish heroines like those popularized by Janet Evanovich, Elaine Viets, Stephanie Bond, and Gemma Holliday, and humorous mysteries like those by Donna A 1.

“I hope, when my time comes, that I die decently in bed. I don’t want to be murdered beside the garbage cans in some Chicago alley.” (Bugs Moran)Sprightly swing music spills across the dimly lit club. The grayish curtains of cigarette smoke part every once in a while to reveal a sparkling stage and tables upon tables of patrons, some incurably inebriated and others high on the fast-paced nightlife. Fabulous flappers in shimmery cocktail dresses and stylish feather headbands throw their hands up and stomp their feet to the addictive beat on the dance floor. Smartly dressed men, their hair neatly parted and slicked back, toss fistfuls of dice onto the plush green baize of the craps tables. Some hover over roulette wheels, staring intently at the spinning flashes of silver, while others finger their playing cards as they sip on tumblers of whiskey, eyeing both the river and the tower of tokens next to them.One of the most infamous of the gangsters during this era was George “Bugs” Moran, who bore all the qualities of a stereotypical 20th-century mobster. They didn’t call him “Bugs” for nothing, as the man was a vindictive ticking time bomb who unleashed hell upon anyone who dared cross him. One of the most prolific career criminals of his time, he was convicted and incarcerated at least three times before his 21st birthday. George was a seasoned gunman (so much so that he was eventually crowned the “father of drive-by shootings”), an expert rum-runner, and the fearsome head of one of the most prominent gangs in all of Chicago.Nobody was ever convicted for the “Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre”, the most infamous gangland hit in American history, but it’s an open secret that it was the work of America’s most famous gangster, Al Capone. Indeed, “Scarface” has captured the nation’s popular imagination since Prohibition, managing to be the most notorious gangster in America while living a very visible and high-profile life in Chicago.
