Myrna Sinclair

Tragedy kept Myrna Sinclair from falling victim to the Great Depression. As her family died one by one in the late 1920s, the combined inheritance set her up for life and forced her into the upper echelons of Chicago's social scene. But their deaths also left her with a taste for danger. Frequently called upon by the police for her skills as a sympathetic interrogator in difficult cases, the clues only she picks up on often lead her down deadly paths.
