In 1920s New York, the price of a womanŠ_s independence can be exorbitant – even fatal. In 1924 Manhattan, womenŠ_s suffrage is old news. For sophisticated booklover Julia Kydd, lifeŠ_s too short for politics. With her cropped hair and penchant for independent living, Julia wants only to publish books under her own imprint. But as a woman, Julia must fight for whatŠ_s hers – including the inheritance her estranged half brother, Philip, has challenged, putting her aspirations in jeopardy. When her friendŠ_s sister, Naomi Rankin, dies suddenly of an apparent suicide, Julia is shocked at the wealthy familyŠ_s indifference toward the ardent suffragistŠ_s death. Naomi chose poverty and hardship over a submissive marriage and a husbandŠ_s control of her money. Now, her death suggests the struggle was more than she could bear. Julia, however, is skeptical. Doubtful of her suspicions, Philip proposes a glib wager: if Julia can prove Naomi was in fact murdered, heŠ_ll drop his claims to her wealth. Julia soon discovers NaomiŠ_s life was as turbulent and enigmatic as her death. And as she gets closer to the truth, Julia sees thereŠ_s much more at stake than her inheritance….
