Summary
"When stylish young bibliophile Julia Kydd returns to 1920s New York, shes determined to launch her own private press. Julias aspirations take her into the heart of the Harlem Renaissance, a literary movement unlike any shes knownwhere notions of race, sexuality, and power are slippery, and identities can be deceptively fluid. At a risqé soiree, Julia befriends singer Eva Pruitt, whose new book is rumored to reveal lurid details about the Harlem nightlife. But Leonard Timson, a local nightclub owner, is furious when he suspects hes the inspiration for a violent character in the book. By morning, Timson is dead, and both Eva and her manuscript are missing. Julia finds herself immersed in a case as troubling as Jazz Age race relations. More questions than answers surface about Evas mysterious world, and powerful interests conspire to protect dangerous secrets. Still, no man can stand between Julia and the truth: appalled by violent injustice, she must use her wit and guile to find the killer." --book jacket
