Not the tale you’ve been told
In this modern-day retelling of Salome, Herod is a drug lord. Herod’s life is mostly the same until he marries his business partner’s wife and her daughter comes to live with him. If his wife is not trying to destroy him, his new stepdaughter is disobeying at every turn.
Everything changes when Salome comes home from college and he has to use her help to clean up her mother’s mess with a snitch. Things change even more when he asks her to dance for his birthday. Things go totally to hell for Herod when he promises Salome anything she wants if she spends an entire week with him dancing. Herod has avoided heartbreak for so long and is used to having power over everyone. Salome has all the power now, and what she asks for could ruin his entire cocaine empire and have the cops at his door.
This is a tale of debauchery, sex, drugs, and romance.
