Murder Among the Rubble (Adele Gossling Mysteries: Book 7)

Murder Among The Rubble book cover

San Francisco is in ruins — but can the worst disaster the city has ever known cover up a murder?

On a quiet morning in April 1906, an earthquake of horrendous magnitude shakes one of America’s most vibrant and vivacious cities. Buildings crumble to the ground. Fires destroy everything from the dilapidated buildings of South of Market to the mansions of Nob Hill. Nearly eighty percent of the city is leveled.

Elsie Blessings, rabid suffragist and reformer, calls her friend Adele Gossling and her aura-reading friend Nin Branch to her side in the Presidio’s refugee camp to help destitute women and children while San Francisco begins the slow process of rebuilding. Adele’s brother, Jackson, and Sheriff Hatfield accompany them at the request of army and police friends who desperately need volunteers to help maintain law and order amidst the chaos of the ruined city.

Can Adele and Nin help solve the crime of a dead woman with only a jade pendant, a fan, and a cryptic note to go on?

Includes an Author’s Note with background on the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire!
