Publisher's Summary

Jan 1, 1955
Henry Wood is suffering greatly from a festive night of saying goodbye to 1954. His world is one of black and white, right and wrong, but his life is about to change and there will forever be shades of grey. An average detective, with a passion for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Henry is about to be hired by a beautiful woman, to find her father and his journal. It seems simple enough, but when a second woman appears, wanting his services, to find the same journal, he suspects he might be in over his head. He's right. They are the least of his problems. The local mafia boss, Tommy 'The Knife', wants the journal too. As long as it is missing, he is vulnerable, and the other bosses smell blood in the water. Who can Henry trust? Henry has a mysterious benefactor that he has never met, but seems to have his best interest at heart. Will Henry take the help that is offered? Does he have a choice?

Period detective fiction with a twist

Just the right length for a rainy Sunday. Henry is a low key guy in NYC with mob problems.The basic plot is solid and well done. Characters have some depth and are well presented. Oh, but the quirky twists! No spoilers in this review, you have to experience them yourself! Enjoy!
MCG has the perfect voice tone, cadence, and variability to perform this tale in an understated but fully engaged delivery.
Bought as Whispersync for less than $5.00 as alerted by Book Gorilla.

Well Written

This was very interesting and well written, with some nice twists . It had much more violence than I like, but was, after all, a gangster mystery.
