Social reform with a ripping good story
Gangsters posing as upright citizens and activists treated as criminals. Good stuff and so relevant today.

Another winner from versatile Jess Walters
Thank you to HarperCollins and Edelweiss for sharing Jess Walter’s new novel. I really enjoyed this historical fiction title. Jess Walters is a great and multifaceted writer. I’ve started comparing him to Chris Bohjalian and Mary Doria Russell, authors who write on a huge variety of subjects and genres, all successfully. This story especially will be enjoyed by fans of Russell’s “The Women of the Copper County” as there are a number of thematic similarities. It was somewhat slow going in the beginning, but stick with it, things pick up. I recommend this to an fan of historical fiction.
