City of Secrets, by Kelli StanleyRead about the other novels on the list.
Beautiful but blasphemous San Francisco sleuth Miranda Corbie starts out trying to identify the murderer of a peep-show employee at her city’s 1940 world’s fair, a woman found desecrated with an anti-Jewish slur. Following a second slaying, though, the pool of suspects expands to include not just prospective lovers and racial bigots, but American Nazis, and lands Corbie in a Napa Valley asylum where it might not just be the insane who are crazy.
