One Foot on the Edge – A China Bohannon Mystery
The gay 1890s aren’t always. Gay, that is. Sometimes life is dangerous.
In 1896, there aren’t many career choices for a young lady. China Bohannon has fled one bad situation and is looking to start her life over as a strong, independent woman in the wild and woolly town of Spokane, Washington. The trouble is, convincing Gratton Doyle to take her seriously as a bookkeeper is hard enough, and when it comes to working as an investigator in the Doyle & Howe Detective Agency, it’s well-nigh impossible. But what if China is able to solve a murder case no one else wants to take on, that of a young girl found dead, her body tossed in the river? If she can avoid being the next murder victim, will Gratton hire her then? There’s only one way to find out.
This is the first China Bohannon mystery novel. Four Furlongs is the fourth, with a different publisher. Watch for Two Feet Below an Three Seconds to Thunder, soon to be released.
