Congratulations to Lou J. Berger on the recent release of his latest book, THE COMPANY YOU KEEP (October 22, 2020, from Heads and Tail Publishing).
When Skeeter’s parents are brutally murdered, she is sold to Hurley, a vicious conman, to pay off her family debts. This disreputable gentleman, operating in Civil War-era Chicago, enlists a motley crew of children to fleece honest folks of their money. Hurley uses Skeeter’s tinkering talents to enhance his profits, and her mechanical marvels are the envy of his shady retinue. Skeeter, dreaming of bigger things, is quickly outgrowing Hurley’s iron-fisted control. Will she be able to escape Hurley’s clutches, and flee west, before it’s too late? Purchase a copy through Amazon.
