Summary
<b>** 2014 SHAMUS AWARD winner **</b><br /><br />NOTE: THIS IS THE CORRECT BOOK FOR THIS COVER AND TITLE<br /><br />Tea with two spinsters thrusts 1930s private investigator Maggie Sullivan into an explosive mix of murder, political rivalries and family secrets. &#xa0;Pursuing their case means risking not only her life, but her detective license.<br /><br />The Vanhorn sisters want her to learn the fate of their father, who vanished more than a quarter century earlier in Dayton, Ohio’s, catastrophic 1913 flood. &#xa0;They believe he was murdered. &#xa0;They think they know the killer. &#xa0;But before Maggie can question the suspect, he winds up dead.<br /><br />With a nip of gin to cheer her and a Smith &amp; Wesson for company, Maggie follows a trail all but obliterated by time. &#xa0;It leads her to a local politician with bigger ambitions — and possibly secrets to hide. &#xa0;It takes her into dime stores, cheap hotels, and a violent ambush by men wearing brass knuckles.<br /><br />A determined cop wages a wily campaign to win her affections. &#xa0;A rag-tag newsboy pushes to be her assistant. &#xa0;As crimes of the past explode in the present, Maggie fights foes who must destroy her to destroy each other.<br /><br />Slide into the passenger seat of Maggie’s DeSoto for an action-packed ride through a story filled with the atmosphere of early 20th century America and well-drawn characters. &#xa0;See why fans of this historical mystery series have dubbed the one-of-a-kind detective at its center “Sam Spade in a Skirt”.
