America in the 1920s was a country alive with the wild fun
of jazz, speakeasies and a new kind of woman—the
Vera Abramowitz is determined to leave her gritty

Charleston in nightclubs and earning the
As the ultimate flapper, Vera captures the attention of
two high rollers, a handsome nightclub owner and a sexy
gambler. On their arms, she gains entree into a world
filled with bootlegged bourbon, wailing jazz and money to
burn. She thinks her biggest problem is choosing between
them, until the truth comes out. Her two lovers are really
mobsters from rival gangs during Chicago's infamous Beer
Wars, a battle Al Capone refuses to lose.
The heady life she's living is an illusion resting on a
bedrock of crime and violence unlike anything the country
has ever seen before. When the good times come to an end,
Vera becomes entangled in everything from bootlegging to
murder. And as men from both gangs fall around her, Vera
must put together the pieces of her shattered life, as
Chicago hurtles towards one of the most infamous days in
its history, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.
"Rosen's Chicago gangsters are vividly rendered, and the
gun molls stir up at least as much trouble as their
infamous men."—Sara Gruen, New York Times bestselling
author of Water for Elephants
