Strong characters, deep relationships and rich historical detail all together in a fast-paced and fascinating read. You will be pulled into the story and will care deeply about what transpires. The suspense builds as you live through the shocking events endured. And the ending - what a surprise!

New author Victoria Brown has shown great skill in developing both plot and characters. The finely drawn relationships among the three friends, Kurt, Nichols and Charlie make us care as we follow them from boyhood into their adult lives. And we understand their devotion to and admiration of Nichol's father, Albo Jablonski. What happens to Albo impacts them all and will move you as well.

All this drama is set against the backdrop of Prohibition, a fascinating historical era. Brown deftly weaves history, class conflict and rum running into her story.

Brown is a truly promising author: her writing is sure; her pacing is excellent; her story is compelling. Read it and you will agree.
