On a cold December night in 1920s Atlanta, a drunken white cop shoots a black gambler in one of the worst parts of town, and a cache of jewels goes missing from a mansion in one of the best. Joe Rose--rambler, gambler, and professional thief--has just hit the city. He soon finds himself caught in a three-sided puzzle that involves a black-hearted police officer called "the Captain," the pimp and crapshooter Little Jesse Williams, and a wicked beauty named Pearl Spencer. Behind it all is Atlanta, the city once nothing but dust and ashes, now the richest, busiest metropolis in the South, mixing sin with success and vibrating with mayhem and music. In his acclaimed Storyville series, David Fulmer brought the jazz-soaked streets of New Orleans to life. Now he brings us another absorbing mystery in a new setting raucous with music and rich with history.

Review quote

"Fulmer paints the sprawling vitality of 1920s Atlanta with broad strokes. [A] vital effort from Shamus-winner Fulmer."
