Every disaster has a story - none more thrilling than this one. Set during the great San Francisco earthquake and fire, this tale of political corruption, vendettas, romance, rescue - and murder - is based on recently uncovered facts.

Told by Annalisa Passarelli, a feisty young reporter, the audiobook paints a vivid picture of the post-Victorian city, from the gilded ballrooms of Nob Hill to the seedy bars of the Barbary Coast; from the slave ships in the bay to the front row seats of Enrico Caruso's sold out performance.

At its center is an ongoing battle - fought even as the city burns - that pits incompetent and unscrupulous politicians against a coalition of honest police officers, newspaper editors, citizens, and a lone federal prosecutor. Download and start listening now!

    " A great novel about San Francisco at that! The story is about the corruption that was taken place right before the big 1906 earthquake! I love it! It was very visual and soon to be film! "

    " This was a great piece of historical fiction - makes me really want to see a museum exhibit on the devastation of the earthquake and fire so that I can really see what happened. "
