Hardened criminals are no match for pistol-packing spinster Constance Kopp and her sisters in this hilarious and exciting period drama set in 1914 New Jersey.
A crash between the Kopp sisters’ horse and buggy and an automobile driven by arrogant factory owner Henry Kaufman begins a disturbing cycle of menacing behavior. Intimidation and threats of violence follow Constance’s every effort to make Kaufman pay, finally resulting in her appeal to the Bergen County Sheriff to help her collect.
A sheer delight to read and based on actual events, this historical mystery packs the unexpected, the unconventional, and a serendipitous humor into every chapter.
Meeting: Monday June 21, from 8:00-8:45 p.m. Registration required.
Girl Waits with Gun is available in print, hoopla e-book and e-audiobook and OverDrive/Libby e-book and e-audiobook.
