Set in Philadelphia during Prohibition, the Bootleggers’ Chronicles follows the journey of Maggie Barnes as she grows from a widow and single mother living isolated in her community under financially desperate circumstances to a successful investigator, landlady, and professional.

The driving force behind the books are Maggie’s struggles to protect her son and weaken the hold of the bootleggers and gangsters on her city.

The story of Philadelphia, and many other American cities during the thirteen years of Prohibition, is one of lawlessness, corruption, and violence. Sherilyn has done extensive research into the times and that historical accuracy shines through.

If you like…

street-savvy heroines,

complex cover-ups, 

1920s crime stories about criminal underworlds, temptation, and corruption,

… then you’ll love Sherilyn Decter’s grand gangster tales.
