Publisher's Summary

A hooker. A mistress. A murder. This town was built on sin. The town of Trinidad, Colorado was a tough place to be a woman in 1913. But it was the best place in the West to find one, if you had the cash. Honeyville, they used to call it.
A murder throws Inez and Dora together - two women from opposite sides of town, in a town built for men. Against all odds, the well born girl and the high class hooker are drawn together in friendship...But this is a town that is rotten to the core, and beyond the rustling of silk skirts, the dancing and laughter, deadly unrest is building...
Welcome to Honeyville - a town living by its own rules, where nothing is quite as it seems. A story inspired by a lost chapter in American history.
