THE COLD MILLIONS is in the house & we can't recommend it enough!
Jess Walter has created a vivid and thrilling story in the wild and turbulent time of 1909 Spokane where labor unions fought for the rights of the workers and lower classes, the "cold millions" like Gig and Rye Dolan. These brothers are swept into the fight where they encounter a myriad of unique characters including three strong women, one a real-life labor and rights organizer, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, a corrupt millionaire lumber/mining baron, dangerous cops, mysterious friends and a brave lawyer. Throughout the tale we witness the bond between the brothers stretch and reflect their own experiences and hopes for the future. Jess Walters' tremendous ability to bring his complex characters alive within such a significant historical time and his wry sense of humor delicately threaded through the story assures that this book will live on and on." ...
