It was a stew of organized crime and corruption, run by a machine.

Possibly even the same people/5. Sign In. Whoops! There was a problem previewing Wicked Retrying.

InGeneva “Gin” Kelly, a quick-witted flapper from the hills of western Maryland, is a regular at this Village hideaway known as the Christopher Club. Caught up in a raid, Gin lands in the office of Prohibition enforcement agent Oliver Anson, who persuades her to help him catch her stepfather, Duke Kelly.

Williams wrote several books taking place in the Jazz Age, and she superbly captures life in the Roaring ’20s, full of love and scandal in New York Modern Society. “A Certain Age”, “The Wicked City”, and “Cocoa Beach” are unmissable works filled with luxury, impressive characters, and sophisticated style.

"As in THE WICKED CITY, THE WICKED REDHEAD is chock full of adventure, intrigue and suspense, and I was drawn in completely by the unique writing style, both storylines and Gin’s often sardonic character." The book alternates between the two women/time periods, and I was absolutely immersed in the story from beginning to end.
