Gotta love a mystery set in 1901 South Bend, IN
In historical fiction what could be better than a story set in South Bend, Indiana in 1901, featuring he back story of the anarchists? As a child my cousins lived in South Bend and my Grandmother drove a Studebaker. I hear echoes today terrorism of my impression of anarchism in the early 20th century. I want to know what that was all about and how it ended, and how that might inform us in our fight against the terrorist movement.
On top of all of that intriguing setting, the author has penned a fabulous mystery featuring a smart, plucky female heroine.
The question continually hanging over the story is did the plot to kill President McKinley originate in South Bend
