Denver, 1919

I decided to use the name Geraldine Brunton. It's not the name I was born with, nor the name I married, but it will hide who I really am...and what I have done.

This book was a delightful mystery with a historical backdrop. It reminded me quite a bit of a cross between a classic Gothic mystery and a game of Clue.
