(2004)
A novel by

 
EVERY DISASTER HAS A STORY, none more thrilling this one. Set during the great San Francisco earthquake and fire, this page-turning tale of political corruption, vendettas, romance, and rescue-and-murder, is based on recently uncovered facts that will forever change our understanding of what really happened. Told by Annalisa Passarella, a feisty young reporter, the novel paints a vivid picture of life in the post-Victorian city, from the gilded ballrooms of Nob Hill to the seedy bars of the Barbary Coast; from the slave ships in the bay, to the front row seats of Enriso Caruso's sold out performance. At its center is an ongoing battle-fought even as the city burns-that pits imcompetent and unscrupulous politicians against a coalition of honest police officers, newspaper editors, citizens, and a lone federal prosecutor. leading the fight to save the city is Hunter Fallon, the rebellious indealistic scion of a family of police officers. With him at every dangerous step is Annalisa, who uses her newspaper connections and her charm to infiltrate the inner circles of the corrupt political machine.
