Death by Rum Running. . .

When a man is found dead in the spring of 1931 at the Bell in Hand Tavern on Union Street in the city of Boston, pathologist Dr. Haley Higgins and investigative reporter Samantha Hawke are both working the case. They want the same thing ~ to catch a killer. Though they don't exactly trust each other, they'll have to work together if they want to solve this perplexing mystery, diving into the world of bootlegging and extortion. Will this unlikely duo patch up their differences before becoming the next victims?

Don't miss this gripping, addictive new series for lovers of Rizzoli and Isles. A spin off from the acclaimed Ginger Gold Mystery series, this clever, feisty, depression-era whodunit readers call "serious and suspenseful" and "entertaining mystery series" will keep you turning pages until the surprising yet satisfying end.
