Hope Sze Medical Mystery Book 9

Prohibition and Predators. 

Hope Sze escapes for a romantic weekend away at the Rumrunner’s Rest, a Roaring Twenties inn once celebrated both for Prohibition’s best alcohol and the smoothest jazz bands north of the Detroit River.

Then a convention of fictional villains overrun the tavern, her friend glimpses a ghost, and Hope uncovers a grisly surprise in the fireplace that may be related to Al Capone, the infamous gangster.

At least two people disappeared from this very inn, and one soul will not rest in peace.

Tonight, unless Hope unravels a century’s worth of clues, death will collect several more lives. Including the one she holds most dear.


“A masterfully distilled, 180 proof thriller.” —Nathalie Gamache, MD and The Gin*eco*logic Artisan Distiller

“A mysterious and moving story that I found entirely compelling on every page.” —Rosamund Small, Dora Award-winning playwright

“I never thought a medical thriller could have ALL the villains. I was wrong. Stuffed with menace and humor, pop culture and Prohibition, and a villain as meticulous as the heroine is smart, Yi has done it again.” —Michael Warren Lucas, author of Git Commit Murder
