The Angel of New York: The law's gun for hire, the one they send when the job gets too risky, a thief, or bodyguard, or murderess... A former spy of the Russian Revolution.
During the last months of the Roaring Twenties, one woman must play both roles. But when her NYPD contacts throw her a job that's close to home, she finds the lines between the two alter-agos beginning to blur, and her daughter's life in joepardy.

Mary was a circus elephant. The Star of the West. She could dance, play the trumpet and pleased crowds wherever she went.

She is Michelle Augustine, and from this day to her adulthood, the turn of the century, to Australian Federation, from poverty to comfort, love to loneliness, violence to peace and all the passion, joy, death and destruction her life will influence he and his sinister connection to her will never be far behind.
