Sunday Salon: New Book Arrivals

 New book arrivals:

Rock of Ages

(Junior Bender #8)

Publication: June 7, 2022, Soho Crime

Junior Bender, Los Angeles burglar and off-the-books detective to the felonious, is reminded that rock and roll will never die, no matter how fervently he wishes some of it would, when Hollywood's most dangerous geriatric mobster, Irwin Dressler, retains Junior's investigative services to solve a rather unharmonious problem.



The Case of the Married Woman: Caroline Norton and Her Fight for Women's Justice

Portrayal of a courageous and compassionate woman who refused to be curbed by the personal and political constraints of her time, the 19th century.

Provisions... such as the right of a mother to have access to her own children, owe much to Caroline Norton, who was determined to secure justice for women at all levels of society

  1. The Bone Flower does sound quite gothic. I can't say that I have heard of Caroline Norton, but now I am curious about her. Have a great weekend!
