    ┬┐Flying Rivets and Bullets in This Mystery┬┐

    Set in 1942, with more and more men being called on to defend our Country, Rose Doyle Keefe, like many other women, secures a job at the Pushey Shipyard. At the time, it was about the best paying job Rose could get, and she sure needs it. Her absent husband Billy had lied to her about enlisting, when, in fact, he had been boozing and womanizing, with hardworking Rose the last one to know. Stepping into a tough (typically a man’s) position on the shipbuilding crew, Rose faces more obstacles than just the hard work and long hours. The male crew members resent the female presence at the shipyard and torment them, both verbally and physically. Rose’s assignment on the team was that of “passer”—one who catches red-hot rivets tossed from the “heater” and replaces temporary bolts with those now mushroom-shaped, to be flattened by the riveter’s pneumatic hammer. If the heat and height (being up on scaffolding) weren’t enough to deal with. Rose endures nasty tricks and taunting by fellow workers, until one day, Rose fights back! Highly agitated Shift Foreman, Bob Finch orders Rose into his office and launches into a reprimand and ultimate dismissal. Rose pleads her case to retain her much needed position with a leering Finch making sexual advances. Rose smacks him in the head with a stapler, dazing him and runs for safety. She wanders aimlessly for hours, finally heading to her tiny apartment shared with her widowed Sister, Katie and Katie’s infant son, Charlie. The peacefully safe atmosphere is interrupted by a knock at the door and Lieutenant Jack Riordan announcing Rose is wanted for the bludgeoning death of Robert Finch! Rose knew she didn’t do this! She was defending herself! But how to prove that she didn’t kill the rude, crude, nasty excuse for a man, slime ball foreman, and perhaps uncover who did—all within five days or she will be arrested? This will take every bit of constructive sleuthing she can muster. Her Sister Katie surprises her with her “hound dog detective skills”. Who did do the dastardly deed? Was it Finch’s wife? With help from her boyfriend, Simonetti the butcher? Abused employee, Shelby Jackson, who was missing in action since the incident? Michael Delaney, Rose’s “lovesick puppy dog” and old friend who was angry over Finch’s actions? Or how about silver-tongued Irishman Clinton Kilbride who lost his beloved fiancée? Perhaps social climber, “anything for a buck ”Tony Del Vecchio ? This tale starts out slowly as you get acquainted with Rose and company, but jump on her train and hang on, as it pulls you in and keeps you wondering if your hunches were correct with some surprises along the way. This is the first in the “Rosie the Riveter” series and I’m curious to see what future adventures Ms. Meade and ultimately, Rose have in store for us. Nancy Narma

    The main character Rosie the Riviter was interesting, yet the plot was thin and a seventh grader could have figured it out in minutes. The idea for the series is there, but not enough substance to the story to make it enjoyable. I also read Meade's mystery set in New England and thought it wandered aimlessly. With money being tight these days, I'll stick with authors who I know put out a good story.
