Summary
Dateline Chicago, 1946: Policy, the illegal lottery, makes millions of dollars for racketeers in Chicago{u2019}s black community. But the numbers don{u2019}t add up when kingpin Ed Jones is kidnapped. Who grabbed him? The mob? Another policy wheel operator? And why? Gus Carson, World War II veteran, a survivor of the sinking of his ship in the Pacific. A Chicago cop, he{u2019}s suspended for a late night shooting at a brothel. Enter wealthy politico Arvis Hypoole. He hires Gus to find Jones. The caveat: He{u2019}s got one week to do it. The challenge: Everyone{u2019}s looking for Jones and most don{u2019}t want to find him alive. Author Steve Monroe offers another slice of underworld life told through fact-based fiction. And his protagonist, Carson, is the conduit to the intrigue. Haunted and violent, he staves off pressure with a wisecrack or a hard cross to the jaw. He navigates through a world of gambling, nightlife, shady politics and murder, all the while seeking much more than the kidnapping victim. He{u2019}s seeking redemption. And there is only one time and one city in which he can find it: {u2019}46, Chicago
