The fourth in this historical series, set against a background of the Roaring Twenties. A new author for and one I will read again. It works all right as a stand-A-Lone as the story was completed. The backstory caught my attention and my TBR like is now larger. Jesse Beckett is an orphan and grew up in vaudeville. In order survive she did what was necessary. In this story, her boyfriend is arrested for murder, prohibitions problems, and tax evasion. She has been hired by the Pickford-Fairbanks’ studio as a script girl. Jessie is rooming with 5 other girls in a house. There she meets a woman whose niece, Kit Riley is death and dumb. Kit is the same age as Jesse when Jesse mother died. A member of the studio husband
gun- down at his work. The police have no clues as to what happens. His widow asked Jessie to find his killer. The story takes several twists and turns before Jessie finds the answer. The historical information is informative of the time period. I recommend this book.
