Jo Allison is an award-winning historical mysteries and suspense author whose books are based in the 1910s in St. Louis.  Jo’s books center on a young “new woman” who works for the St. Louis police. There are five books so far in the Julia Nye Mystery Series. Allison drives family and librarians crazy with the depth of her research on the city and on the time period but delights readers who like their mysteries historical. She now lives in Bristol, Virginia, but visits St. Louis frequently along with other potential settings. Allison’s reporting background is reflected in the series through two important male characters who report for St. Louis newspapers.
