Detroit Shuffle by D. E. JohnsonDetroit Shuffle

By D. E. Johnson

Will Anderson and Elizabeth Hume get caught up in the political turmoil over women’s suffrage in Detroit Shuffle, the fourth book in D. E. Johnson’s critically acclaimed 1910s Detroit series.  Will Anderson inadvertently breaks up a key suffrage rally when he thwarts a gunman set on killing his lover, Elizabeth Hume.   No one else saw the man, and Elizabeth believes he hallucinated the entire incident, a side effect of the radium “treatment” he received at Eloise Hospital.  She asks him to sit on the sidelines while she and her companions try to get the women’s suffrage amendment passed by Michigan voters.  Instead, Will sets out to protect Elizabeth and prove his sanity.  Johnson’s immaculate plotting and high-tension writing make for a spellbinding read set in early twentieth-century Detroit.
