Day 6: Branded Woman, Wade Miller.
A fun, pulp thriller told from a unique female perspective. You won't soon forget Cay Morgan!
Lots of lush atmosphere and twisty plot turns. I'm shocked that a film version was never attempted. It seemed tailor-made for hard-boiled actresses like Lauren Bacall, Barbara Stanwyck or Lizabeth Scott.
