Killer Instinct

Sssmmmokin' Hot!

Catherine Tramell is a highly successful crime novelist.  She's smart, beautiful, rich and sexy, and has some mad skills with an ice pick...and maybe a few "issues" as well.  No matter, she's a perfect candidate for Hoardom, and the inspiration for this first installment of Season 5:  Revenge of the Hoar.  Who can forget the sexy club scene where she wears this bronze dress and seduces a washed-up LA detective from afar while dancing provocatively with her BFF and lover, Roxy?  It is that very scene, no, that very dress, that inspired this installment's colorway.
