New York Grove Press 2005 0739456326 / 9780739456323 Paperback As New 
As New No names or other markings. Tight. "A rare achievement." Bookmarks Magazine offeres this review "The narrative functions well on two levels: it’s both a riveting story and an intriguing history lesson, made more so with fine portraits of colorful characters (real people) and the society in which they lived. The author offers his own conclusion to the mystery, which some critics found shocking and one thought too pat to ring true. Regardless, this "diligent researcher and gifted storyteller" (Washington Post) has crafted an eye-opening portrait of a mysterious woman, and "tells her engrossing story… with polish and verve, weaving history and mystery neatly together" (Miami Herald)." ; 8.20 X 5.40 X 0.80 inches; 268 pp pages
