"I guarantee you will fall in love with poet-cum-private eye Olivia Brown. With a quirky taste for good booze, bad men, and women's suffrage—and moving through the textured, fully realized world of gangsters, speakeasies, and flappers that Ms. Meyers brilliantly evokes—Olivia Brown is a wonderful original!
—ROBERT CRAIS, AUTHOR OF LA. REQUIEM (Free Love)
