A colorful and inventive adventure tale."- Washington Post

"It's True Grit, New York style."- New York Post

"One of the best mystery novels of the year: wonderful and very entertaining."
- New York Journal of Books

"Stewart deftly combines the rough-and-tumble atmosphere of early twentieth-century New York City with the story of three women who want to live life on their own terms."
- Library Journal, starred review

In 1915, lady cops were not expected to chase down fugitives on the streets of New York City. But Constance Kopp never did what anyone expected.
Constance and her sisters aren't living the quiet life anymore. They've made headlines fighting back against a ruthless silk factory owner and his gang of thugs. After Sheriff Heath sees Constance in action, he appoints her as one of the nation's first female deputies. But when a German-speaking con man threatens her position-and puts the honorable sheriff at risk for being thrown in his own jail-Constance will be forced to prove herself again.
Based on the Kopp sisters' real-life adventures, Girl Waits with Gun introduced the sensational lives of Constance Kopp and her sisters to an army of enthusiastic readers. This second installment, also ripped from the headlines, takes us farther into the riveting story of a woman who defied expectations, forged her own path, and tackled crime along the way.

"A fast-moving, craftily written novel."- BookPage

"[An] irresistible madcap adventure."- PopSugar

"Stewart leaves the reader wondering about one mystery still developing unsolved . . . Readers will just have to wait-impatiently, no doubt-for book No. 3."- Boston Globe "
AMY STEWART is the award-winning author of seven books, including her acclaimed fiction debut Girl Waits with Gun and the bestsellers The Drunken Botanist and Wicked Plants. She and her husband own a bookstore called Eureka Books in Eureka, California. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
