Private Eye Phillip Morris has been hired by Boss Tom Holloway to find his missing son, and Morris is working diligently, really he is, but the Boss's daughter keeps getting in his path. Will it lead to romance?
Kansas City in 1934, the end of Prohibition when the mob is fighting for control and Count Basie is beginning his jazz career.
And where has the Boss's son gone with his Stutz? Kidnapped? Murdered? Or just wandered off on a chase of his own?
Author Jack Kline has caught it all in But Not For Me, when gritty Kansas City was the fraud and corruption center of the United States, can't turn the pages fast enough.
Yesterday Jack and I had the opportunity to hear a Pendergast historian, conplete with slides and pictures and newspaper clippings. Peeking over Jack's shoulder, I saw him making lots of notes. Can the sequel be far behind?
