Jo and Lou are modern-day grifters. Blackmailing men for their sexual exploits has never been easier during the #metoo movement. But Jo owes The Lady Upstairs a debt for a previous scam that went wrong. With the due date approaching, Jo begins to wonder about what happened to the previous incumbent in her position…and what exactly encompasses “retirement” in the Lady’s world.
The Lady Upstairs is a fun feminist noir. If you like tales of women who take control of their lives, you will enjoy this twisty ride down Hollywood’s mean streets. 4.5 stars!
