RICH AS SIN by Patrick Anderson
Released: Aug. 1, 1991

"The perfect choice for grieving Dallas fans."
Cruel fate separates beautiful, illegitimate twin orphan girls at puberty, taking one to the top of Fort Worth society, the other to the depths of the drug world—in the latest Dynastic Supersoap from the author of Busy Bodies, The Pleasure Business, etc. Ripped as babies from the grasp of their well-born but rashly married teen-age mother by their furious grandfather, timid Jessica and gutsy Mickey grow to beautiful prepubescence at a rotten Fort Worth orphanage where a girl's 13th birthday is usually celebrated by gang rape at the hands of the orphan boys.
