Rule of Capture

Los Angeles, 1928. Oil. Oranges. And the site of a stock scandal to rival any in American history.  As one of the scandal’s victims, Sarah is in the city for the trial of the perpetrators but ends up jeopardizing everything she holds dear to find justice for a dead woman she barely knew.


"An entertaining whodunit with a striking protagonist and a compelling cultural backdrop...Russell intertwines fictional and non-fictional events in an engaging manner, weaving both the peculiar charms of early Hollywood and the real-life Julian petroleum scandal into her murder mystery."
