Romance, family, and politics converge explosively in a suspicious murder during the Bread and Roses Strike of 1912 and threaten to engulf a 21st-century woman researching the strike. When textile workers went on strike in 1912 for better wages and working conditions, they never imagined the violence that would overwhelm them. The first person to die was Anna Lopizzo . . . and then John Rami. . . and then many others. The strikers claimed the police had killed Anna, but the police said one of the strikers shot her. Who was right? Fast forward to present-day Lawrence, Massachusetts, and Lindsey Marc, a historic mystery writer, is tracking down what really happened to Anna and the other workers. Along the way, someone gets wind of what Lindsey is researching and is threatened by what she may discover. It begins with phone calls and quickly moves to ransacking her hotel room. Can Lindsey find out the truth before something terrible happens to her?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For those who like contemporary and historical novels with a solid mystery at both ends, this is the book that nicely combines all the elements and makes them work."--Author's Choice Reviews (01/01/2006)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lynn Coleman is a master-storyteller who grabs the reader's interest and heart right from the beginning of the book. Her convoluted mystery keeps the reader guessing and provides a story that keeps the pages turning. Her characters are fully three-dimensional with foibles that most readers can understand and feel kinship with.-- (10/29/2005)
Coleman skillfully alternates between scenes from 1912 and Lindsey's 21st-century sleuthing. A nail-chewing read for fans of historical and contemporary fiction.-- (06/02/2006)
"As a mystery, this is done very well. Coleman leads you where she wants you to go and reveals nothing before it's time. She lets you think you have the answer early, but then you realize you went down the path she wanted you to go. The twist revealed sums things up nicely and leaves you with a good feeling."-- (10/09/2006)
