"I can’t buy you diamonds
Can’t promise peace of mind
But I can get you a tall, stiff drink
and help you unwind."
-character Wiley Booker from Tricky Wicked Bitch

Tricky Wicked Bitch

She embarks on a time-bending journey to a 1920's blues club where she falls in love with an enigmatic singer, Wiley Booker, and struggles with history and destiny.
