A young Mayor’s assistant gets caught between Tammany Hall gangsters and her childhood nightmares in this mystery set in Depression Era New York.
New York City, 1936.It’s been six months since Lane Sanders was appointed Mayor Fiorello “Fio” La Guardia’s new personal aide, and the twenty-three-year-old is sprinting in her Mary Janes to keep up. Managing endless revitalization efforts while combating the Tammany Hall political machine makes for long, unpredictable days.

When Lane is attacked and threatened by one of the city’s most notorious gangsters, even the mayor can’t promise her safety. Corrupt city officials are using her as a pawn against Fio for disgracing their party in the prior election. But that doesn’t explain why her assailant wielding the same silver gun from her nightmares.
Balancing a clandestine love affair and a mounting list of suspects, Lane must figure out how the secrets of her past are connected to the city’s underground crime network—before someone pulls the trigger on the most explosive revenge plot in New York history.
