Murder at the Freeman Hotel

1920s California

Minnie Freeman is a woman on a mission to move to a new city, open a hotel, and stay independently wealthy. Her plan is hindered by the dead body found at the bottom of the new automatic elevator shaft and a sigil linking it to other deaths in the city. Now, she’s got to solve the murder, or her hotel may never have its grand opening.
