There is evil unrest due to this this time period and Irish immigrants entering the town. The Irish are not liked by most of the people and young Irish girls are turning up murdered. It will take to the end of the story until you figure out who was doing it.
Stanley's Dad runs for Senate. A riot breaks out, events unfold that lead to the person doing the murders. At the last part of the book you will be unable to put down so this is a warning to read it when you plan to be awake.
It takes a while to set stage before the book grips you. Then you cannot quit reading. Faith is woven throughout the whole story. A very good read.
