A haunting debut novel set against the background of New York City in the 1920s…

Confessions are Rose Baker’s job. A typist for the New York City Police Department, she sits in judgment like a high priestess. Criminals come before her to admit their transgressions, and, with a few strokes of the keys before her, she seals their fate. But while she may hear about shootings, knifings, and crimes of passion, as soon as she leaves the room, she reverts to a dignified and proper lady. Until Odalie joins the typing pool.

As Rose quickly falls under the stylish, coquettish Odalie’s spell, she is lured into a sparkling underworld of speakeasies and jazz. And what starts as simple fascination turns into an obsession from which she may never recover.

    Very engaging mystery story in 1920s New York. Rose is a plain Jane but I came to really like her... and then came the twist!

    Entertaining and very well-written. A great book to read on a long flight or by the pool. Each chapter keeps you guessing. My only criticism is that the last chapter isn't nearly as fulfilling as the the content leading up to it; expected a bit more in the end.

    I love debut novels and this one did not disappoint. An enjoyable and entertaining read. I had a hard time putting the book down. Highly recommend this book as a good summer beach read.

    An interesting read, this book was never far from my mind. Back in the 20s, it was much easier to get by with murder, especially when women were second class citizens in the minds of men, and even sometimes themselves.
