Publisher's Summary

Mavis St. Paul had been a rich man's mistress. Now she was a corpse. And every cop in New York City was hunting for the two-bit punk accused of putting a knife in her. But the punk was innocent. He'd been set up to take the fall by some cutie who was too clever by half. My job? Find that cutie - before the cutie found me.

An Early Winner from Westlake

The Cutie is a fast-moving, "tough guy" crime novel that keeps you listening and ends on a powerful note. Westlake's writing is crisp, his characters well-drawn and he does a nice job of adding descriptive touches that evoke the era in which this was written. The audio narration is excellent. I really enjoyed this book!
