CHICAGO, 1921: Al Capone is on the rise, and a new music called jazz fills the speakeasies. When talented young pianist Eve Riser is caught in a drive-by shooting that kills the bootlegger standing next to her, she forms an unlikely friendship with the bootlegger's sister, Lena. Eve is looking for her missing stepsister, a popular night club singer, and Lena wants to find out who killed her brother. Together these two women navigate the back alleys and jazz clubs of the Roaring Twenties, encountering charismatic managers, handsome musicians, romance, love, and a mysterious gangster called the Walnut who seems to be the key to it all.

As they fight racial barriers trying to discover the truth, Eve and Lena - two strong women fighting for their families - must learn to rely on each other and trust no one else. SUGARLAND mixes the excitement of the 1920s with the darker side of Prohibition in a gripping story with "real suspense for anyone who likes a good mystery." (Kirkus Starred Review)
