A dark and exciting historical novel that is both an adventure story and a powerful rendering of 1890s Chicago.

When young, inexperienced but very ambitious female reporter, Emily Strauss, blags her way into newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer’s office, she comes away with a treacherous assignment: to discover what happened to Anna Zemeckis, one of many women who have disappeared during the 1893 World’s Fair. Chicago is a place of dangerous contrasts. Among all the glitz and rassmatazz of the Fair itself and the spectacular wealth and influence of a new middle class elite, Emily comes face to face with a sinister underworld.
