The Wicked City, Paperback

The Wicked City Paperback


The Jazz Age comes alive with a love story for the ages: a rugged Prohibition agent and a saucy flapper from one of Appalachia's most notorious bootlegging families...Manhattan, present day: stuck in a new and unusual apartment after discovering her boyfriend's infidelity, Ella Hawthorne thinks she's going crazy when she hears strange noises coming from the walls late at night.

When the handsome piano player across the hall tells her that the place used to be home to a speakeasy during the Jazz Age, Ella is determined to discover the building's secrets...Manhattan, 1924: Geneva 'Gin' Kelly, a smart-mouthed, red-haired flapper from the hills of western Maryland, reluctantly agrees to help rugged Prohibition enforcement agent Oliver Anson catch her stepfather, a notorious bootlegger.

But Gin's adventures will shake Manhattan society to its foundations...and reveal secrets that shock even our irrepressible red-headed heroine.
