Both Marie Laurent and Mélanie vow to do what they can to resist the German occupiers and help free France and their beloved city. They may not have weapons at first, but they have other ways to get at German soldiers. Marie Laurent has her young and beautiful strippers, while Mélanie has powers and magical abilities beyond human comprehension. Mélanie, whose original name was Delicia, will soon unleash the powers of Hell on the German occupiers. SINNER AT WAR is a prequel to the novels ETERNAL SINNER and AMERICAN SINNER.
