Sarah Woolson has always dreamed of being a lawyer. The trouble is that, in 1880, everyone believes a woman’s place is in the home. Using her brains and a bit of subterfuge, Sarah finagles her way into a prestigious law firm, becoming an associate attorney and acquiring her very first client, a lovely young society matron accused of murdering her husband. Sarah is sure of her client’s innocence, but with the discovery of her secret lover, it becomes nearly impossible to prove.

When four more victims fall prey to the killer’s knife, Sarah fears she’s bitten off more than she can chew. Soon Sarah finds herself embroiled in shady legal maneuvers, a daring Chinatown raid, a secret and very scandalous sex club, and the most powerful and dangerous tong lord in the city’s Chinese District.

    " Maybe I'm not being fair to this one... listened to in the car and it just wasn't keeping my interest, my mind kept wandering. It was an okay read, but nothing spectacular. Ended up dealing with a scandalous sex club so I can't even recommend it to the little old ladies. "

    " Mediocre (what a marvelous word!) book. The author was banging on social issues that were -true- critical in the 1880s, but with a very 21st century voice and mode of expression. I came away feeling like someone needs to show the author that a woman can be strong without disliking men or marriage. "

    " Great, heartwarming story of courage with a mystery as well. Sarah Woolson is an aspiring lawyer who is tough, courageous, and extremely intelligient. Author Shirley Tallman is a great writer and storyteller. I highly recommend this book. "
