Publisher's Summary

The novella centers on Eddie Durante, owner of a speakeasy supported by Eddie's mobster uncle, the boss of the Durante family. Eddie became a young widower after his family's rival, the Caprice family, murdered his wife over a territory dispute. After devising a plan to retaliate against four of the rivaling capos, Eddie is left with the daunting task of trying to move on, until a family member notifies him that the Caprices have put a hit man in the speakeasy - and Eddie's name is on the list. But things soon take an unexpected turn when Eddie and his close friends begin finding the dead bodies of Eddie's relatives, ones who helped in his payback.
Behind the backdrop of jazz music and glistening flappers, murder after murder begins to occur, as revenge takes center stage, and Eddie soon learns that some secrets can't be taken to the grave.
