Is it the beautiful writing or the wonderful characters?  Is it the haunting plot or the superb rendering of human nature?  Yes, it is!  Almost Orwellian in its message, this novel examines a truly remarkable, if fantastical event—the return of the dead.  A

The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell

by Suzanne Rindell
(pub. 4/13)

Place and time are so important in this mysterious and puzzling debut novel set during prohibition in New York. Deceit, murder, and a very unreliable narrator will keep you guessing to the end. Who is Rose Baker – really?
