Publisher's Summary

It is the spring of 1885, and wealthy New York socialite Beret Osmundsen has been estranged from her younger sister, Lillie, for a year. Then she gets word from her aunt and uncle that Lillie has died suddenly in Denver. What they do not tell her is that Lillie had become a prostitute and was brutally murdered in the brothel where she had been living. When Beret discovers the sordid truth of Lillie's death, she makes her way to Denver, determined to find her sister's murderer. Detective Mick McCauley may not want her involved in the case, but Beret is determined, and the investigation soon takes her from the dangerous, seedy underworld of Denver's tenderloin to the highest levels of Denver society. Along the way, Beret not only learns the depths of Lillie's depravity, but also exposes the sinister side of Gilded Age ambition.

    "One of Dallas's Best!"

    If you enjoy a great 'who dunnit' mystery, you will enjoy this story. Couple that with it is written by Sandra Dallas, and you've got a winner.

    Set in Denver Colorado 1800s, The story draws you in from the start, and it is very difficult to stop listening. It's one of those stories that you find yourself thinking about throughout the day and can't stop thinking about after you've finished.

    Story
    "Perhaps women shouldn't vote"

    This book perhaps had a decent story in it somewhere. It started out promisingly. The female lead seemed like a strong character and like she had a good sense of herself and what she wanted to know and do.

    Then the story continued. She is probably one of the weakest female leads ever. Her actions have no logic from one chapter to the next. Is she strong? Is she weak? Is she just a girl who needs help from a man.

    Supposedly a wealthy powerful woman, she certainly does some very stupid and unfeminist things.

    The basic plot is decent. No real surprises as we move through the plot.

    If you don't mind an unevenly drawn group of characters and flawed plot, this book is for you!
