    Fact & Fiction blend for mystery

    This book is based on 1936 NYC historical facts mixed with fiction. I found it an excellent murder mystery with a very interesting lead character, Lane Sanders. As aid to the newly elected mayor, Fiorello La Guardia, 23 yr old Lane finds herself being used by gangsters and teamsters as a route to get the mayor's attention. Family history, that Lane didn't know about, needs to be investigated when she faces danger from a new mobster she is unaware of. Steady plot, heightened tension created from the era without modern technology to call for help, kept me turning the pages. Epilogue gives clues for book 2 and I can hardly wait to read that one! This book has a reading group guide, and a selected bibliography section. I volunteered to read an ARC from Kensington Press through Net Galley.

    Journey Back to 1930’s New York

    Lane Sanders has landed a job as the personal assistant to New York City’s mayor Fiorello “Fio” La Guardia in 1936 New York City. She’s enjoying her job even though some days it feels like she is just trying to keep up with her energetic boss as he is on a crusade to clean up the city. One night, at the scene of a fire, Lane receives a warning for her boss. But soon she begins to wonder if there is more to the warning. And is she really a target? This new series gets off to a promising start. There’s a good mystery here that kept me engaged most of the time and certainly had me turning pages during the suspenseful climax. I did feel the beginning wandered a bit too much, although it did all come into play by the end. Likewise, the ending could have been tighter as it set up the next in the series. The characters, both real and fictional, are a varied bunch and a delight to be around.
