9780007431779: Honeyville

A hooker. A mistress. A murder. This town was built on sin.

This is a time when the corrupt ruled.
This is a place that is rotten to the core.
This is the story of two women, only one of whom lives to tell the tale.

Trinidad, Colorado 1913: the only town for a thousand miles where prostitution is still legal. This is a town that is living by its own rules, a society that is upside down, where the corrupt rule and money flows. But beneath the glitter and the gaiety, bitter unrest is building. This story follows two women, both trying to make their way in a frontier town built and run for men. One lives within society's boundaries: a decent, rich life, behind lace curtains. The other is a celebrated hooker.

Based on a real-life event – a massacre of women and children – so brutal it stopped America in its tracks.

Product Description:

A hooker. A mistress. A murder. This town was built on sin.

The town of Trinidad, Colorado was a tough place to be a woman in 1913. But it was the best place in the West to find one, if you had the cash.

Honeyville, they used to call it.

A murder throws Inez and Dora together – two women from opposite sides of town, in a town built for men. Against all odds, the well born girl and the high class hooker are drawn together in friendship…

But this is a town that is rotten to the core, and beyond the rustling of silk skirts, the dancing and laughter, deadly unrest is building…

Welcome to Honeyville – a town living by its own rules, where nothing is quite as it seems
