When the Sheriff of Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri, dies in a wagon accident, Julia Nye is determined to investigate. From her nominal position as a typist in the City of St. Louis Police Department, she is sure of only a few issues surrounding the Sheriff’s death: that lawmen don’t break laws, even those they dislike; that prohibition is a passionate issue but not one worth killing for; and that the investigation itself is certainly not a deadly undertaking. She recruits two male reporter friends and the trio finds out, each person in a different way, that those sureties may not hold.

About the Author

First of all, Jo Allison is the pen name for Linda Harris Dobkins. I would like for its use to channel readers to my fiction as opposed to my academic non-fiction. As importantly, it honors my great-grandmother, Josephine Harris nee Allison and the strong women of her time. I’ve made my living as a news reporter, an advertising copywriter, a teacher, and a published academic. My early publishing was in urban and regional economics, the specialties coming out of my Ph.D. program. In my later academic years, I published two articles involving women and suffrage in St. Louis, an exercise in economic history.
