One of my favorite sub-genres is historical fiction. Will this new addition live up to expectations; does the plotted mystery keep you on the edge of your seat? Read it and let me know what you think!
A beautiful, wealthy heiress is murdered in the little mining town of Mt. Hope, Pennsylvania, at the height of the golden era of the coal and coke industry, and the town is left in shock. Hapless strangers, a father-and-daughter, are accused of murder and face hanging in this vengeful town. In preparing a defense, Jenny and Marcus uncover evil and corruption among the ruling coal-rich elite. Powerful, ruthless, and ambitious men are involved with this charming heiress, but which one is the murderer?
