Q is for Queenpin by Megan Abbott

This is my post for Crime Fiction Alphabet Q.

We all know the story of the guy with easy morals who gets seduced into crime by the femme fatale finally leading to his ruin. This is the story of the girl who is already taking small steps in the world of organised crime who seduced by a charmer plans a heist that could only go wrong. Queenpin is a short engrossing novel that tells the story of a young woman who gets entwined in the world of smuggling, gambling, casinos in the 1960s and who emerges as the leader in the game as the Queenpin. Here is my review of the book.
