Masie, the flaxen-haired daughter of notorious boot-legger Dutch Schultz, returns home from boarding school to find her family in crisis. Her mother is dangerously unstable, her father’s empire is on the brink of ruin, and the boy she once loved has become a ruthless killer for hire. To keep her family’s dangerous secrets Masie is forced into a lie that will change the course of her future—and leave her trapped in a gilded cage of her own making. As she watches her world fall apart, Masie must decide whether to take her place in the hierarchy, or spread her wings, leaving the people she loves, and the life she despises, far behind her.
Two worlds collide in Gatsby era New York, in a time of dazzling speakeasies and vicious shoot-outs, of gritty gangsters and iridescent ingénues, where not everything that sparkles is gold.
*This is the first of the Canary Club series and is a short story introduction into the forthcoming novels.
I have seen Gilded Cage reviews floating around for a while and added it to my TBR. I finally got the chance to read it and I am so glad I did. Gilded Cage takes place in the 1920’s, which is one of my favorite eras. This short read sucked me in and sent me on one hell of a ride! The best part is that each character is written with such depth, you’re able to connect with them on one level or another. If you’re looking for a fantastic, short read, Gilded Cage is it!
