9780099502173: City of Dark Hearts

A dark and exciting historical novel that is both an adventure story and a powerful rendering of 1890s Chicago.

When young, inexperienced but very ambitious female reporter, Emily Strauss, blags her way into newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer’s office, she comes away with a treacherous assignment: to discover what happened to Anna Zemeckis, one of many women who have disappeared during the 1893 World’s Fair. Chicago is a place of dangerous contrasts. Among all the glitz and rassmatazz of the Fair itself and the spectacular wealth and influence of a new middle class elite, Emily comes face to face with a sinister underworld.

About the Author:

Now writing as James Conan, William Horwood and Helen Rappaport are both established authors. William Horwood was a city and feature editor with the Daily Mail until, in 1978, he wrote the first of his now classic Duncton Chronicles which became instant international bestsellers. His wide-ranging books since include his critically acclaimed memoir The Boy with No Shoes. William has been married three times, has six children and now lives in Oxford. Helen Rappaport studied Russian at university and for many years worked as an actress in TV and films before turning to historical writing in the early 1990s. She is the author of books on Joseph Stalin, Queen Victoria and the award-winning An Encyclopedia of Women Social Reformers, as well as being a specialist in 19th-century women's history.
