Description


Chicago journalist Emily Winter is back in this sequel to Winter in Chicago. It's Spring, 1977, and she's the first reporter on the scene of a grusome murder in the offices of a highly respected civic organization investigating corruption at City Hall. Although she's proven herself a skilled reporter with at least one headline making story to her credit, her new TV boss orders her to stay on a more ladylike beat -- lifestyle, entertainment and feature stories.

But Emily persists, determined to overcome the sexism that infuses her career while negotiating her way into hard news coverage, including the murder. She relies on a large, entertaining roster of sources and allies, including her eccentric husband Ben, his beloved Uncle Max and the ladies from The Rules Committee, all intimately familiary with glass ceilings. As the case twists and turns, Emily navigates the city she loves, relishing Chicago's architecture, neighborhood restaurants, culture and beloved, if hapless, Cubs.
