Об этой аудиокниге

Clara Foltz, Esq. fights sexism and racism in early San Francisco

After losing a case in a sexist and racist kangaroo court, Clara learns to use street tactics to find the real killer. 

In this exciting first mystery in the new Portia of the Pacific Historical Mystery series, the reviews are in: 

"Chinawoman's Chance is an engaging mystery with a historically informative feminist bent." (Anita Lock, Clarion Book Reviews - Foreword Reviews)

"It was fascinating to look at the reactions of the politicians to the perceived growing threat of the 'yellow menace', as they termed it, with their heathen religions and beliefs, comparing that to today's response with respect to Hispanic and Muslim immigration. The 'Exclusion Act' and the 'Muslim Ban' - not all that different, perhaps? This book appealed to me on many levels, but most importantly of all, it was a darn good read and an excellent mystery." (Grant Leishman, author of The Second Coming)

"The story line flows smoothly amid several provocative twists and turns that engage the reader until the very last page. Musgrave utilizes vivid description of setting and plot to lure the reader into the realistic detail of his story. The main character is well-defined and inspiring as a 19th century heroine. With its heavy reference to the sexist attitudes of the time, I envision Chinawoman's Chance as a staple in the library of many historical mystery collectors." (Lisa McCombs, author of I Have MS. What's Your Superpower?)

Now you can hear how it was in California before civil rights became an issue for anyone but males. Clara Shortridge Foltz, Esq. is the first woman admitted to the State Bar of California. It is 1884 in San Francisco's Chinatown.
