For every one of those, there must be several times as many who get away with their destructive crimes... In the thirty years the Nameless Detective been a private investigator, he has never once had the misfortune to cross paths with this type of seductress... but in Femme he'll meet Cory Beckett, a deadly woman who has brought some new angles to the species.
