Parlor Games

Author: Maryka Biaggio

In the late 19th and early 20th century, a young woman sets out to find her fortune among the rich of Chicago. Over the course of twenty years or so, she ends up traveling around the world, becoming involved with numerous rich men, but also finding herself being pursued by a certain Pinkerton detective. I enjoyed listening to this book (from Overdrive). The narration is excellent. The main character almost makes the listener feel sorry for her at times. It's a fast-moving, fun book.
