Kris Nelscott's Smoke Filled Rooms continues the story of Smokey Dalton, an unlicensed black PI trying to make his way in the turbulent 1960s. This novel picks up shortly after the end of the events in A Dangerous Road. Smokey and his young charge, 10-year old Jimmy, have taken up residence in Chicago. Smokey is trying to keep a low profile in order to protect Jimmy, who witnessed the murder of Martin Luther King in Memphis. But a low profile is difficult to keep as political activists descend on Chicago for the 1968 Democratic National Convention and an old evil from Smokey's past returns to haunt him. To keep Jimmy alive, Smokey has to get into the thick of the action and do some serious detecting.
Very good book.
