Library Journal, starred review

In 1915, lady cops were not expected to chase down fugitives on the streets of New York City. But Constance Kopp never did what anyone expected.
Constance and her sisters aren’t living the quiet life anymore. They’ve made headlines fighting back against a ruthless silk factory owner and his gang of thugs. After Sheriff Heath sees Constance in action, he appoints her as one of the nation’s first female deputies. But when a German-speaking con man threatens her position—and puts the honorable sheriff at risk for being thrown in his own jail—Constance will be forced to prove herself again.
Based on the Kopp sisters’ real-life adventures, Girl Waits with Gun introduced the sensational lives of Constance Kopp and her sisters to an army of enthusiastic readers. This second installment, also ripped from the headlines, takes us farther into the riveting story of a woman who defied expectations, forged her own path, and tackled crime along the way.
“A fast-moving, craftily written novel.”—BookPage
“[An] irresistible madcap adventure.”—PopSugar
“Stewart leaves the reader wondering about one mystery still developing unsolved . . . Readers will just have to wait—impatiently, no doubt—for book No. 3.”—Boston Globe

Formatting complaint

Took advantage of the Women's History Month special deal and downloaded this book eager to continue the Kopp sisters' adventures. Wish I had known it was formatted as one long scroll . . . no way to page through like a normal book/ebook. Difficult to keep my place because I can't move from page to page. Unfortunate that this will spoil my reading of a book I was looking forward to. Should have known "if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is . . . "
