Locked Rock, Iowa's Hatchet MurderseBook - 2012
Gracie Evans, resident of Moser Mansion, and Locked Rock, Iowa native, has become a women's activist. The newspaper is full of stories about how women in the east are burning their corsets to draw attention to the fact they want the right to vote. Gracie talks the women's bible group into joining Carry A. Nation's fight for prohibition. The women organize a Temperance march with Ida Frank as the leader. They march to Main Street with hatchets, planning to bust up the saloon. Sheriff Earl Bullock arrests three of them including Gracie Evans. The women are assigned community service. However, that isn't a good enough punishment in someone's view. A killer hacks Ida Frank's family to death with the Moser Mansion's hatchet. Rafe Johnson's blood hounds trail a scent to the mansion and tree Gracie's rocker. Locked Rock citizens are on edge and looking for someone to blame for the murders. Gracie is the town's drinking men's prime suspect. --Provided by publisher.
