This entertaining collection of murder mysteries from the age of bright young things gathers nail-biting whodunnits crafted by talents like Robert Randisi, Jon L. Breen, Edward D. Hoch, and others, which reflect the allures--and the deadly dangers--of the Jazz Age.
In Chicago and New York, in sleazy speakeasies and on Easy Street, to the strains of jazz and the beat of the Charleston, the twenties roared. The horrors of the Great War behind it, the decade went mad with abandon-and mad over the movies, radio, telephones, and the motorcar. But beneath the froth and the folly, the razzle and dazzle, lay a darker world, a hard and often violent world, for the twenties belonged as much to the gangster as they did to the flapper. The stories in this vastly entertaining collection of whodunnits crafted by talents like Amy Myers, Robert Randisi, Jon L. Breen, Edward D. Hoch, Marilyn Todd, and Mike Stotter reflect the allures-and the deadly dangers-of both those worlds.
