A Shadowy Figure Is Intent on Harming Denver’s Women

Book 11 in the True Colors series—Fiction Based on Strange-But True History

Denver of 1900 is still a dangerous place to be following the silver crash of 1893. And of out of the dark comes a shadow intent on harming women. Ambitious young Denver newspaper reporter Polly Blythe is searching for the big story that’s going to launch her career. On Friday evening, August 24, 1900, she gets her break when two women are cracked over the head within a two-minute walk of each other. But policeman Edwin Timmer thwarts Polly’s ideas of a serial criminal. . .until the shadowy figure strikes again. Will the reporter and the policeman team up to find the culprit before he strikes too close for comfort?


If only Pa had let her further her education. But her family needed money. She’d had to get a job. Her brother Lyle got to finish college because Pa said education was wasted on women but not on men. She’d worked hard to move from cleaning the newspaper offices to writing for the Post.

All Mr. Ward could see was that cleaning girl.

“Please, sir, I’m so sorry. It will never happen again. I promise. From now on, you’ll have the most sensational stories ever. You won’t be disappointed in me. I’ll do my job, and I’ll do it well. Just don’t sack me.”

Mr. Ward stroked his prominent, clean-shaven chin. “By rights, I should let you go. Or at least reduce you to a cleaning position again.” He raked his gaze from her head to her feet and back. “Still, you’re a nice addition to the staff.”

She cringed. Had he hired her because he thought she was pretty? A piece to spruce up the office?

“I’ll give you another chance. One more. Take this as your warning. Another mistake like that, and you’ll find yourself on the street. Do you understand? Now, get out of here. It’s well after eight on a Friday night, and I just want to go home.”

He’d made his point crystal clear. She gave a single nod, turned on her heel, and returned to her little corner of the office. She stared at the sheet in the roller of her typewriter, the paper table proudly pronouncing it to be a Remington.

A sigh escaped her lips. Another Denver society piece. How many stories could she write about wealthy young women’s engagements to the most eligible bachelors in the city?
