About this title

Synopsis:

1940s, Washington DC. Government girl Louise is blackmailed into investigating the suspicious death of a missing co-worker, with sinister consequences
1940s, Washington DC. Government
Girl Louise Pearlie is asked to review the file usage of a missing analyst from
the Office of Strategic Services – the US’s wartime intelligence agency – only
to learn he’d drowned in the Tidal Basin days before. OSS confirm it was an
accident, and Louise is sent back to her regular job in the file rooms.

Her time spent
investigating Paul Hughes at least has one positive outcome, though: Louise
meets a young woman in the OSS Reading Room, who asks her to join her ‘salon’,
where she is encouraged to talk about controversial issues like racial
segregation and equal pay for women. Socializing with the women helps her
cope with her beau Joe Prager's transfer to New York City.


But Louise’s
life soon takes a dangerous and sinister turn, and she can’t help but worry if
she’ll wind up floating in the Tidal Basin herself . . .
