Dr. Genevieve Summerford Mystery, Book 2
Synopsis: To stop the trafficking ring plaguing her city, Dr. Genevieve Summerford must dive into New York’s underworld
In early 1900s New York, the formidable crime syndicate known as the Black Hand has been terrorizing the city’s Italian community with bombings and kidnappings. When a young Italian girl is found drowned and sexually defiled, Dr. Genevieve Summerford suspects the organization has expanded into forced prostitution, and she won’t rest until the trafficking ring is brought to justice.
Review: I really loved the first book and I was looking forward to this new story! It must be said that the whole context that the author has chosen is fascinating!
So we find Genevieve ready for new adventures. In fact, as she tries to know exactly what she wants to do with her feelings towards Simon and to understand what she wants, our dear psychiatrist will have to face new problems. The author plunges us into the world of forced prostitution in the Italian community of a New York in the 1900s. It is a really interesting and terrible subject especially when we know that it still exists today.
In fact, while she meets with Simon, she attends the draft of a young Italian who seems to have suffered a lot of vices and that is how she meets Rosa who begs her to find one of her friends Italian too, which seems to have disappeared. Intrigued by these events, Genevieve won’t be able to prevent herself from mingling with this sordid story to understand exactly what is going on. But this story is much more complex than she thought, and the slave trade does not particularly like when someone takes a closer look at the business.
I found the story really exciting. I was waiting impatiently to find out what was going to happen. It must be said that our heroine has the chic to end up in compromising situations. This novel is a bit different from the first one but I found that the turn that the author had taken was just as well!
This is not a simple story and it is sad to see what these girls have suffered but I confess that I did not expect at all the culprit of the story. It must be said that we easily follow the hypotheses of Genevieve without ever questioning them!
A very good new novel.

I prefer stories set in the 1800s, but this sounds quite intriguing, so I’m tempted to check it out.
