The best-selling author of Girl Waits with Gun and Lady Cop Makes Trouble continues her extraordinary journey into the lives of the fabulous Kopp sisters.
"Perfect for book groups."--Booklist
"Stewart has another winner on her hands."--Suspense Magazine
Constance Kopp is back--with a badge and a taste for justice. She has finally earned her deputy sheriff's badge and is ready to tackle a new kind of case: defending independent young women brought into the Hackensack jail on dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. Such were the laws--and morals--of 1916.
Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and support these women when no one else will. But it's her sister Fleurette--who runs away from their sleepy farm to join the glamorous world of vaudeville--who puts Constance's beliefs to the test. Is there a wayward girl in her own family?
Set against the backdrop of World War I and drawn from the true story of the Kopp sisters, Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions is a spirited, page-turning story that will delight fans of historical fiction and lighthearted detective fiction alike.
"Readers will eagerly await the opportunity to spend more time among the fearless and funny Kopp sisters."--Book Reporter
