The latest novel from the bestselling author of
Dollface and What the Lady Wants takes us deep
into the tumultuous world of 1950s Chicago where a female
journalist struggles with the heavy price of ambition...
Every second of every day, something is happening. Thereâ€™s a
story out there buried in the muck, and Jordan Walsh, coming
from a family of esteemed reporters, wants to be the one to
dig it up. But itâ€™s 1955, and the men who dominate the city
room of the Chicago Tribune have no interest in making room
for a female cub reporter. Instead Jordan is relegated to
society news, reporting on Marilyn Monroe sightings at the
Pump Room and interviewing secretaries for the White
Collar Girl column.
Even with her journalistic legacy and connections to
luminaries like Mike Royko, Nelson Algren, and Ernest
Hemingway, Jordan struggles to be taken seriously. Of
course, that all changes the moment she establishes a secret
source inside Mayor Daleyâ€™s office and gets her hands on
some confidential information. Now careers and lives are
hanging on Jordanâ€™s every word. But if she succeeds in
landing her stories on the front page, thereâ€™s no guarantee
sheâ€™ll remain above the fold.â€¦
