On Shaky Ground (Paperback)
The Copper Country was on strike; that is, the miners were as their union battled against the powerful mine owners' unreasonable demands. It was a time of turmoil, destruction and even death. But six-hundred miles south, the bustling city of Detroit was celebrating the Roaring Twenties with glitzy flappers, jazz, money, and mobsters. After disguising herself as the infamous 'Sable, ' reporter Jessica Peterson exposes crime boss, Sid Brewster, and successfully has him incarcerated. Believing she was leaving her trouble behind bars, she accepts a position at a small newspaper in Houghton, Michigan unaware of the turbulence that awaited her and that her worst nightmare is hot on her trail.
