Mysterious Disappearances Taint the Chicago World's FairStep into True Colors -- a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime

While attending the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, Winnifred Wylde believes she witnessed a woman being kidnapped. She tries to convince her father, an inspector with the Chicago police, to look into reports of mysterious disappearances around the White City. Inspector Wylde tries to dismiss her claims as exaggeration of an overactive imagination, but he eventually concedes to letting her go undercover as secretary to the man in question--if she takes her pistol for protection and Jude Thorpe, a policeman, for bodyguard.

Will she be able to expose H. H. Holmes's illicit activity, or will Winnifred become his next victim?

Review quote

"A delightful debut! Bursting with intrigue, romance, and historical tidbits that bring Chicago during the Gilded Age to vivid life, The White City is a story that's certainly destined for the keeper shelf."
-Jen Turano, USA Today bestselling author

"From the first sentence until the last, Hitchcock has crafted a tale that weaves in and out and all around, keeping me guessing until the final page was turned. The White City is a story I won't soon forget!"
--Kathleen Y'Barbo, author of The Alamo Bride, The Pirate Bride and My Heart Belongs in Galveston, Texas
