December 2014 Book of the Month.
Set in 1913 and 1933 in Colorado and Hollywood amid the miners’ strike and unrest and later the opulent life of the film industry. At the centre of the tale is an unsolved murder which eventually is solved in quite an ingenious way. Our murdered victim was a strong supporter of the labour movement and there is lots of fascinating detail of that period, of the poverty and hunger plus the lives of prostitutes in the 1913s. It is based on a real event.
