About the Book
It happened in Silicon Valley. In Sutter's Mill. And in Leadville.
They all came to Leadville with the same purpose: Get in. Get rich. Get out.
As 1879 is drawing to a close, this Rocky Mountain boom town has infected the world with silver fever. Investors, confidence men, merchants, miners... all flock to Leadville looking for the next strike. Women join the rush as well--among them, saloon owner Inez Stannert. When a prominent mining assayer is found trampled behind her establishment, she's determined to unravel the mystery of his death. Her search takes her from the mines and banks of Leadville to the exclusive parlor houses of Denver. Along the way, she finds that lies and secrets run deep in Colorado and many will stop at nothing to get rich...
