“Wasserman’s writing is
atmospherically rich. Very strongly recommended.” – Historical Novel Society,
London, critical review of 1884 No Boundaries
1886 Ties That Bind: A Story of Politics, Graft, and
It is 1886 as Englishman Lord Langsford travels by
train to San Francisco. Newly widowed, Langsford is desperate to escape his
grief, demons, and life in England. As Langsford completes the last leg of his
transcontinental journey, his life unexpectedly changes once again when he

Sally has made it her mission to find the men who
robbed a train and killed her brother. Unfortunately, no one—not even the
owners of the Southern Pacific Railroad—seem to care. Unable to resist her
pleas, Langsford offers to help Sally and soon becomes entangled in a web of
politics, corruption, and greed. As murder, threats, and attacks ensue that
endanger both Sally and Langsford, influential men in both California and

oddly attracted to Sally, now must sort through criminals and politicians alike
to discover the truth behind her brother’s death and prevent his own murder.
