November, 1936. In the midst of the Great Depression, the Big Apple is defiantly striving toward an era infused with art, architecture, and economic progress under the dynamic Mayor La Guardia. But in the second book in LA Chandlar’s acclaimed Art Deco Mystery series, as Lane Sanders travels back to her hometown of Rochester, Michigan to face the ghosts of her past, a high profile Manhattan missing person’s case threatens to destroy everything. Through the rich history of Rochester and Detroit, Michigan, a ride on the Hindenburg, a band of city urchins, a narrow escape through the seedier side of Manhattan, and many new friends who go on to become the movers and shakers of the Thirties, one peculiar thing ties the mystery of Lane's past and Mayor La Guardia’s current debacle together: The Gold Pawn.
"Engaging, vivid, and intriguing, this historical mystery is not only a fascinating behind-the-scenes of Fiorello La Guardia's New York, but an action-packed adventure with quirky characters, snappy dialogue, a hint of romance--and starring one of the pluckiest, most entertaining heroines ever."
--Hank Phillippi Ryan, nationally bestselling author of Trust Me
