COVER REVEAL! ISABEL FEENEY, STAR REPORTER
Coming March 1, 2016!
Extra! Extra! Read All About it!
Isabel Feeney is one of the few newsgirls working in 1920s Chicago, during the era of guns and gangsters. Every day, while she sells copies of the Tribune, she dreams of being a journalist, like her hero, famous crime reporter Maude Collier. When Isabel stumbles upon a murder scene on her own street corner, she’s determined to solve the case. Who murdered mobster Charles “The Bull” Bessemer? Was it his beautiful fiancée, Miss Giddings, whose fingerprints were found on the gun? Miss Giddings's less attractive - and very jealous - sister? Or Bessemer’s associate, Al Capone? As Isabel tracks down clues, she finds herself working alongside Maude, who is covering the case. But as Isabel gets closer to discovering who killed a gangster, someone becomes determined to silence her, too.
