Where did the inspiration for The O’Rourke series come from?

We like all of the old time murder mysteries like Thin Man, Charlie Chan, Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, and the list goes on. We decided to give a tip of the hat to these old school detectives while including the latest in technology.

Jill, great to meet you too!

Sophia, it's no coincidence that there's an Ogden, Utah as well as its being a place name in the Chicago area. William Butler Ogden was the first mayor of the city of Chicago back in the early to mid-1800s, and he was a big proponent and investor in laying train lines out to the Pacific. The train line went through Ogden, Utah.
