Trailblazing Constance's hard-won job as deputy sheriff is on the line in Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit, the fourth installment of Amy Stewart's Kopp Sisters series. After a year on the job, New Jersey's first female deputy sheriff has collared criminals, demanded justice for wronged women, and gained notoriety nationwide for her exploits. But on one stormy night, everything falls apart. While transporting a woman to an insane asylum, Deputy Kopp discovers something deeply troubling about her story. Before she can investigate, another inmate bound for the asylum breaks free and tries to escape. In both cases, Constance runs instinctively toward justice. But the fall of 1916 is a high-stakes election year, and any move she makes could jeopardize Sheriff Heath's future-and her own. Although Constance is not on the ballot, her controversial career makes her the target of political attacks. With wit and verve, book-club favorite Amy Stewart brilliantly conjures the life and times of the real Constance Kopp to give us this "unforgettable, not-to-be messed-with heroine" (Marie Claire) under fire in Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit.

"Stewart's main character, the first female deputy sheriff of New Jersey, Constance Kopp, is based on a real-life person. In the fourth installment of the Kopp sisters series, narrator Christina Moore portrays Constance as a no-nonsense deputy who doesn't ask for any favors but expects to be treated as the professional law officer she is. But in the 1916 election in Bergen County, both of the candidates for sheriff laugh at the idea of a "lady detective." Moore has a host of characters she brings to life, among them the good-old-boy former sheriff, who is running again, and his opponent, who criticizes Constance every chance he gets. Moore also depicts the compassionate side of Constance as she fights for delinquent girls and for a wife whose husband unjustly commits her to an asylum. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
