One O'clock Jump
by Lise McClendon
Halfway around the world, war has begun, but for Dorie Lennox, newly-minuted private eye, danger is more immediate. The dark streets of Kansas City of 1939 offer music, gangsters, and the chance to forget her murky past. With vivid prose and sharp dialogue, the world of Dorie Lennox comes alive, in this thoughtful mystery in the high stakes world of machine politics and desperation deals.
