Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When three pretty young suffragists known as the Trey of Pearls come to San Francisco, the cit‛s brawling and unrefined men whip themselves into a lather of desire and defiance. But the murder of Reverend Divine, the famous advocate of spiritualism, temperance, and the female vote, sets Ambrose Bierce and Tom Redmond on the trail to uncover a darker side to the girl‛ composure and comeliness—free love, a jeweled harem, and a web of San Francisc‛s most powerful men desperately trying to cover their pasts.

As the two sleuths begin to glimpse the truth, the body count builds and tensions—both political and social—erupt into a standoff among suffragists, hard-drinking diehards, and, lurking in the shadows, the elusive murderer.

Synopsis:

- Ambrose Bierce and the Queen of Spades was a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller- Penguin will publish Ambrose Bierce and the One-Eyed Jacks simultaneously

Synopsis:

When three young, beautiful orators known as "The Trey of Pearls" come to San Francisco in 1892 to advocate women's suffrage, the burly city whips itself into a lather. But when the famous women's advocate Reverend Divine is found murdered, Ambrose and Tom uncover a different kind of liberation that includes the doctrine of free love, the minister's harem, and the rough and ready past of California's early years as a frontier, in their search for the murderer.
