Please join Erika Mailman as she tours virtually for Woman of Ill Fame from December 9 - 20.
eBook Publication Date: November 11, 2013
Looking for a better life, Nora Simms sails from the East Coast to gold rush San Francisco with a plan for success: to strike it rich by trading on her good looks. But when a string of murders claims several of her fellow "women of ill fame," Nora grows uneasy with how closely linked all of the victims are to her. Even her rise to the top of her profession and a move to the fashionable part of town don't shelter her from the danger, and she must distinguish friend from foe in a race to discover the identity of the killer.
Praise for Woman of Ill Fame
"I LOVED Woman of Ill Fame! Nora Simms is hilarious, heartbreaking, tough, perceptive...and one of the most engaging characters I've ever met between the pages of a book. Wonderful story, great setting and really good writing made this one of the best books I've read in a long time!" -Diana Gabaldon, internationally-bestselling author of the Outlander series
"The whodunit aspect makes Woman of Ill Fame a page-turner, and Mailman manages to keep the reader guessing. Yet it's the depiction of early San Francisco that propels this thriller above its genre, in the manner of historical fiction such as Caleb Carr's The Alienist." -Kemble Scott, San Francisco Bay Guardian
"Mailman serves up vivid description, sparkling prose and a Gold Rush prostitute as scrappy as Scarlett O’Hara." -Kathleen Grant Gelb, Oakland Tribune
