The Gilded Cage: A Canary Club Novelette
Masie, the flaxen-haired daughter of notorious boot-legger Dutch Schultz, returns home from boarding school to find her family in crisis. Her mother is dangerously unstable, her father’s empire is on the brink of ruin, and the boy she once loved has become a ruthless killer for hire. To keep her family’s dangerous secrets Masie is forced into a lie that will change the course of her future—and leave her trapped in a gilded cage of her own making. As she watches her world fall apart, Masie must decide whether to take her place in the hierarchy, or spread her wings, leaving the people she loves, and the life she despises, far behind her.
**Gilded Cage is the first of three novelettes in the Canary Club world, and is your first introduction to the drama, politics, and decadence inherent in this period. Together these three novelettes create a dramatic prequel to the full length novel, The Canary Club. **
