It is the spring of 1885 and wealthy New York socialite Beret Osmundsen has been estranged from her younger sister, Lillie, for a year when she gets word from her aunt and uncle that Lillie has died suddenly in Denver. What they do not tell her is that Lillie had become a prostitute and was brutally murdered in the brothel where she had been living. When Beret discovers the sordid truth of Lillie's death, she makes her way to Denver, determined to find her sister's murderer. Detective Mick McCauley may not want her involved in the case, but Beret is determined, and the investigation soon takes her from the dangerous, seedy underworld of Denver's tenderloin district to the highest levels of Denver society. Along the way, Beret will not only learn the depths of Lillie's depravity, but will also expose the darkest side of Gilded Age ambition in the process.

Great story telling. Usually not a mystery reader but Sandra Dallas is an awesome writer with believable characters. PUTTING MORE OF HER BOOKS ON HOLD NOW!

Another excellent novel from Sandra Dallas. She finds something interesting historically, usually related to women, and develops a strong story that is compelling to me the reader. As I have lived in Denver, I found this on especially interesting. Beret is someone I would have liked to have known.

Sandra Dallas is the best of the writers of this genre of historical fiction. Right from The Persian Pickle Club and The Quilt That Walked to Golden, I have enjoyed her writing. Fallen Women lived up to my expectations.It is an insightful view of the life and times.
