Wife or Death
Date: July 2015
Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes
Angel was a voluptuous child-woman, bouncing in and out of every bed in town, until she landed in the wrong one and found death was her lover. Then the town that had played voyeur to her indiscretions pounced upon Angel’s husband Jim, branding him cuckold and killer and screaming for blood. But what could Jim do when even the DA, last in a parade of Angel’s lovers, was out to pin the murder on him? He had to find the one who had played Angel false or let an avenging Angel cheat him again. Only this time he might pay with his life!
