Adventures of a Madam in
San Francisco's Victorian Underworld
Novel (110,000 words)
In the quest for survival, a naive servant girl becomes a wealthy and notorious madam; a gentle Chinese scholar is fated to kill for the gangs of Chinatown. Based on real characters and events, this novel brings the era--and those who lived it--alive. Kidnapping, murder, family intrigues, true love and, of course, an earthquake--that's Shaketown. Read the first chapters of Shaketown here.
