Quintessential Mystery cum History Lesson

During this expansive mystery you will be immersed in post WWII history that is so specific and will feel so real it will be as if you are living the tale. Classically Irish American (read Mid-Western) the dialogue is clever and engaging and, at times, uncomfortable. While transported back 60 years you will traverse United States geography and a range of humanity from admirable to obscene. A delightful book that is skillfully dramatized with very talented actors.
