The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindel
Confessions are Rose Baker’s job. A typist for the New York City Police Department, she sits in judgment like a high priestess. Criminals come before her to admit their transgressions, and, with a few strokes of the keys before her, she seals their fate. But while she may hear about shootings, knifings, and crimes of passion, as soon as she leaves the room, she reverts to a dignified and proper
lady. Until Odalie joins the typing pool.
As Rose quickly falls under the stylish, coquettish Odalie’s spell, what starts as simple fascination turns into an obsession from which she may never recover.

would rather they stay invisible.
“A work of incredible beauty…… A transcendent story of courage and connection.” ―Booklist
