A lurid, true crime themed, spicy pulp cover pin-up painting by George Gross featuring a bathing beauty, gun toting moll as "The Daughter of Satan," for the March, 1948 pulp digest title Women in Crime which purported to have stories based on True Fact Detective Cases. The tagline on the cover reads "Some Women Love To Kill - Some Kill To Love..." though the viewer is left wondering which category this bad girl belongs in.

The work has been re-lined and re-stretched and the white borders have been neatly overpainted to create a visually appealing image by an artist the Gallery really admires - George Gross.

From the collection of Bob and Diane Yaspan.
