Inhaltsangabe: Sent to a Wyoming mining town to rescue Chinese child prostitutes, Dayle Dobson crosses paths with Harry Bryant, an "outlaw" stirring up national trouble by organizing labor. Caught up in a life-threatening drama of a far-reaching intrigue, Dayle must make a heart-wrenching choice between the law and what she knows is right--not to mention the man she loves.
Rezension: Dayle Dobson, one of the first Lady Pinkertons, is hired by Garrick Bateman to guard his wife and make sure she doesn't come to harm. Little does Dayle know that Garrick has an ulterior motive for doing this. During the course of guarding Lotta Bateman, Dayle helps to rescue Chinese women who have been virtually enslaved in the Chinatown sector of White Springs, Wyoming. Dayle stumbles on to the realization that the Tong, which controls Chinatown is losing its control and an anarchist group begins agitating in the mines around town. The situation in White Springs becomes more and more tense and dangerous. Enter Harry Bryant and his traveling theatrical group into this setting. Harry is a handsome actor who has his own hidden agenda toward mining laws and the Pinkerton agency itself. Harry intrigues Dayle, who begins to suspect he is the Hooded Sleeper, leader of the anarchist group which has been terrorizing mining companies across America, especially those owned by Jay Gould. The great Allan Pinkerton himself becomes involved in the resolution of the anarchist plot. The story bubbles its way to a fairly explosive ending. Ms. Hurd does a fabulous job in setting the scenes and the historical background for the period. She gives the readers a more than plausible plot and well-written story line. On a personal note, I had a hard time reading this story, mostly because it dealt with a period of history and issues that I have never been interested in. The story is rife with the anti-Chinese/Oriental sentiment expressed during the day, as well as with the agitation for new mining laws and the coming of the labor movement. However, if the reader doesn't mind the subject matter then this book is well worth reading.Jerrie Hurd changes all conception of women's roles in law enforcement and life in the west with this rip-snortin' adventure! No one can deliver a better western with the right flavoring of romance than Jerrie Hurd! This is truly the stuff from which western legends come!Gloria Lower -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc. All rights reserved -- From Literary Times
