Publisher's Summary

Masie, the flaxen-haired daughter of notorious bootlegger Dutch Schultz, returns home from boarding school to find her family in crisis.
Her mother is dangerously unstable, her father's empire is on the brink of ruin, and the boy she once loved has become a ruthless killer for hire. To keep her family's dangerous secrets Masie is forced into a lie that will change the course of her future - and leave her trapped in a gilded cage of her own making. As she watches her world fall apart, Masie must decide whether to take her place in the hierarchy, or spread her wings, leaving the people she loves, and the life she despises, far behind her.

When she returns home she finds that life is much darker, things have changed while she's been gone and her father's club is in danger of flopping.

A wonderful, coming of age, period work. Masie tries to find a way to be of use as her family's speak-easy and other aspects of the chaos awaiting her-though she's discouraged by her father & his thugs.

Meghan Kelly's best performance, yet!
