Were the “good ole days” really that good?

Not so much in post-war Portland. Mae Rose lives in the underbelly of society, on the lam from a knife-wielding pimp. Dr. Ruth Barnett runs a lucrative abortion service. Both are in the crosshairs of Dottie “Do-Good” Lee, anti-vice crusader and aspiring politician. Her pet attack dog is an obsessed DA with his own dirty little secrets. Their lives intertwine in a tale of how life really was during the Age of Americana, not as Hollywood portrayed it. As Mae puts it, “I didn’t make the world, I just make my way in it, as best I can.

Praise for "Girl in the River":
"Girl in the River starts with a bang and hums right along—like one of those hardboiled film noir movies. Kullberg sets the story of Mae in the tempestuous period spanning pre- and post-World War II. It’s a tale that could have taken place in any part of the United States, but this one is based on actual events in and around Portland, Oregon. Smart and raw, full of sassy dialogue, the novel touches on issues of morality and justice, propriety and decency. The 1930s and 40s may have been a simpler time, but the corrosive impact of the corruption this novel explores is all too familiar."
