    Amusing

    The book takes an actual event in the history of San Francisco and delves into the characters motivations. The characters are well written and the mystery intriguing.

    It took me awhile to get into it. I pushed through it but it was tough going. Just not my kind of story.

    Frog Music

    This novel is gritty, brutal in places, and demonstrates inequality between the sexes in a very immediate way. It doesn’t sugar-coat any of the “wild west” flavor of the post-Gold Rush era in San Francisco. Out of necessity, the city became a cauldron of many cultures and the conflicts that rage between them overflow into hot tempers, destruction of property, and yes – even murder. As bleak as all of this sounds, I was riveted by this book. It was so compelling that when I set it down to do something else, my mind gravitated to it like a magnet to iron. The author captures the sights, smells, people and places within “The City” with such a strong feeling of reality, I was spellbound. I recommend this to people who enjoy books that take hold of your attention and propel you along with the force of the need to know what happens next.
