Murder Under a Bad Moon
a Mona Moon Mystery
Madeline Mona Moon is not your typical young lady. She is a cartographer by trade, explorer by nature, and adventurer by heart.
She has inherited a fortune from her uncle and is one of the richest women during the Depression. But there’s a problem. Miss Mona is being accused of murdering her neighbor by a corrupt sheriff. Mona has made enemies in the Bluegrass, and the sheriff’s been told to make life difficult for her.
Why? Because Mona pays good wages to her employees and offers free health care. She even let her miners unionize. Mona is considered a radical and dangerous to some of the other horse owners. They want to be shed of Mona’s extreme views.
It’s too bad someone murdered Judge Landis Garrett, but if the evidence swings around Mona’s way––all the better if it sticks many of the locals think.
Mona’s response is to tell the sheriff and his cronies to go to hell. You want a fight? Well, bring it on!
That’s how Mona does things in 1933.
