“Maybe it was time to land straight in the middle of the
Hamish DeLuca has spent most
of his life trying to hide the anxiety that appears at the
most inopportune times -- including during his first real
court case as a new lawyer. Determined to rise above his
father’s expectations, Hamish runs away to Boston where his
cousin, Luca Valari, is opening a fashionable nightclub in
Scollay Square. When he meets his cousin's “right hand
man” Reggie, Hamish wonders if his dreams for a more normal
life might be at hand.
“Reggie” Van Buren, heir to a New Haven fortune, has fled
fine china, small talk, and the man her parents expect her
to marry. Determined to make a life as the self-sufficient
city girl she’s seen in her favorite Jean Arthur and
Katharine Hepburn pictures, Reggie runs away to Boston,
where she finds an easy secretarial job with the suave Luca
Valari. But as she and Hamish work together in Luca’s
glittering world, they discover a darker side to the
smashing Flamingo nightclub.
When a corpse is
discovered at the Flamingo, Reggie and Hamish quickly learn
there is a vast chasm between the haves and the have-nots in
1937 Boston—and that there’s an underworld that feeds on
them both. As Hamish is forced to choose between his
conscience and loyalty to his beloved cousin, the unlikely
sleuthing duo work to expose a murder before the darkness
destroys everything they’ve worked to build.
