“It was like a dream becoming real out of the mist, I thought.”
— Phyllis Joiner
The year is 1933, and a headstrong teen is on the verge of uncovering the biggest secret of her family’s past — what happened to a long-lost inheritance worth millions. But now, the pressure is on — for the most notorious crime syndicate in Chicago is onto it too — and her family is in their sights. To unravel the mystery, it will take the help of a love-struck Texan transplant, a mysterious guardian by the name of the Phantom, and an unlikely friendship with a Hyde Park lawyer who is none other than the nephew of her nemesis himself.

Abena Sankofa was born into a family with a love of books. …
Growing up, most Saturday afternoons she, along with her mother, father and elder sister could often be found exiting the local library with a crate-full of books so heavy her father had to carry it.
