A Veil of Fog and Flames

The resilience of early San Francisco personified

Heroes and scoundrels are not born - they are forged in the crucible of experience. Nothing anneals like living.

A Veil of Fog and Flames is the tale of young lives poised on a moral tightrope, their stories woven into the fabric of 1851 San Francisco: a city that establishes rules as it pleases - and breaks them as easily.
