Great book. Love how the author took a real life mystery and built a story around it. The 1930s setting in New York, complete with mobsters, corrupt politicians, and broadway show girls made for an entertaining read.

A good fictional story built around a true event ...compelling and interesting.The author did a good job weaving together the individual stories of the 3 woman in the book. I would recommend this.
