“The Kopp sisters easily could have been a footnote in history, were it not for Stewart's painstaking research and fine flair for building a story.”
Seven years ago, I stumbled across a newspaper article about a forgotten woman in law enforcement: Constance Kopp. I was immediately enchanted by her story, and that of her two sisters. For well over a decade, their exploits as crime-fighters and detectives made newspapers nationwide--but they'd been entirely forgotten. I knew immediately that I had to tell their story.
The fifth book in the series is about to be released. I'm hard at work on the sixth and already making notes for the seventh! The books have been translated into a dozen languages, adopted by book clubs and Community-wide Read programs, and are now in development for a television series.
But all that matters to me is that I pay tribute to these extraordinary women and give you the chance to love them as much as I do.
