Description
Chicago, 1924. For intrepid "girl reporter" Maurine Watkins, a minister's daughter from Indiana, big-city life offered unimaginable excitement. Newspaperwomen were supposed to write about clubs, cooking, and clothes. But within weeks of starting at the Chicago Tribune, Watkins found herself embroiled in the scandalous, sex-fueled murder cases of Belva Gaertner and Beulah Annan, who had gunned down their lovers in mysterious circumstances
