THE BEST BAD THINGS
by Katrina Carrasco

Two starred reviews and a November 2018 Library Reads pick! 1887—Former Pinkerton Women’s Bureau agent Alma Rosales is tasked with searching for stolen opium in Washington Territory and uncovering a thief while going undercover as a man. “Breath-catching pacing, tantalizingly rough-and-tumble characters who are somehow both distasteful and deeply relatable, palpable erotic energy, and powerful storytelling make this a standout.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
