Local Historian, Gerrie Schipske, adds three new books on local women's history
As local police ignore the woman’s murder, two more women are found drowned with shawls and German-titled library books tied around their necks.
Fanny and Jane discover that Victoria kept information files on a popular socialite, Adelaide Tichenor, and a politically corrupt Mayor Louis Whealton and that together they drove Victoria from her position.
The current city librarian, Zaidee Brown, contacts Jane and shares that she has also just discovered that the newly published history of the Carnegie libraries by Thomas Koch omits any reference to Long Beach or Victoria as its first librarian.
Jane and Fanny are convinced that Victoria’s disappearance and the erasure of the Long Beach Carnegie Library from historical accounts are connected.
