Plowshare Media is proud to
announce the second historical mystery
written by Pamelia Barratt, released in January, 2011
Pamelia Barratt’s second mystery novel revolves around one of the oldest
families of Chicago, locally renowned for its elegant jewelry store, CD
Peacock’s. The mid-twentieth century finds the family coping
with the downturn of their business following WWII. Feathers are
ruffled when Bernard Peacock is determined to marry Safi, a Jewish girl
from Maxwell Street. Mysteries and secrets are embedded within the
family tree and concealed by the pride of consecutive generations.
Tensions created by the divisions of class and ethnicity set the
stage for a compelling love story during the transformative years
of a great city, and a family’s history whose fate is intimately
entwined with its development.
"A gripping story based on an
equally gripping history -- a fascinating read for mystery-lovers on
both sides of the Atlantic."
