“...a town where the moralists were power-mongering phonies, the feisty reporters who saw through them were just beginning to be women, and rock ‘n’ roll still ruled the AM dial.”—Mike Miner, Chicago Reader
“What I find so compelling is Emily’s determination…I wish I’d met her at Riccardo’s in 1975.”—Rick Kogan, WGN radio host: "After Hours"
Winter in Chicago journalist Emily Winter is the first reporter on the scene of a gruesome murder in the offices of CARD, a civic organization that investigates corruption in City Hall. Although she has proven herself to be a skilled reporter with at least one headline making story to her credit, her new TV boss assigns her to a more “ladylike” beat—lifestyle and feature stories.
Determined to overcome the sexism that inhibits her career, Emily works her way into hard news coverage, including the story of the murder at CARD, but she faces major obstacles on all fronts as she pursues the killer.
As the case twists and turns, Emily navigates the city she loves, relishing Chicago’s architecture, neighborhood restaurants, culture and her beloved, if hapless, Chicago Cubs.
Will she uncover the murderer and bring justice for those who depend on hard-working journalists to write the stories that define their lives? Find out in Winter Gets Hot!
