From the Publisher
Annotation Following up his previous successes--murder mysteries that swirl around the history of jazz and blues--David Fulmer locates his latest thriller in the trumpet-soaked gin joints of 1960s Philadelphia. Eddie Cero, an unemployed former boxer, stumbles upon a hold-up, rescuing private eye Salvatore Giambroni. A reluctant but quick study, Eddie soon finds himself investigating the eerie disappearance of a famous musician several years before, and as he becomes increasingly involved in the case, his attachment to the musician's sister, Valerie, only deepens the intrigue. Fulmer's recreation of the era's music and social milieu is stunning in its realism.
Editors Note After rescuing an older man from two thugs, welterweight boxer Eddie Cero has his life turned upside down when the victim, private detective Sal Giambroni, offers him a part-time job that leads Eddie into the middle of a cold case involving a missing soul singer, one that traps him in a web of violence, betrayal, intrigue, passion, and obsession.
