Constance Kopp and her sisters take on the military establishment at a training camp for women as the U.S. readies for war.
It’s the spring of 1917 and change is in the air. American women have done something remarkable: they’ve banded together to create military-style training camps for women who want to serve.
Trailblazing Constance’s hard-won job as deputy sheriff is on the line in Miss Kopp Just Won’t Quit, the fourth installment of Amy Stewart’s Kopp Sisters series.
After a year on the job, New Jersey’s first female deputy sheriff has collared criminals, demanded justice for wronged women, and gained notoriety nationwide for her exploits.
Constance Kopp stands up to biased “morality” laws of 1916, defending the independent young women in her prison against dubious charges when no one else will.
Deputy sheriff Constance Kopp is outraged to see young women brought into the Hackensack jail over dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity.
“A colorful and inventive adventure tale.”—Washington Post
“It’s True Grit, New York style.”—New York Post
“One of the best mystery novels of the year: wonderful and very entertaining.”
