Description

An explosion outside his speakeasy draws Jimmy into a life-or-death chase

Young Jimmy Quinn is delivering a bribe for the infamous racketeer Arnold Rothstein  when a bomb goes off on Wall Street, killing thirty people and scaring every banker in the city right down to his spats. Twelve years later, Rothstein is dead, and Jimmy is doing his best to stay out of trouble, running a quiet little Manhattan speakeasy. At a particularly bad moment for him and his favorite waitress, a blast rocks the alley outside and draws him right back into the madness of a dozen years ago.
 
That morning, a strange package came in with his liquor shipment: four plain books filled with cryptic numbers. It seems the motive behind this bombing may have been the same as that behind the explosion on Wall Street more than a decade ago: money. The incident sets Jimmy off on a mad race to stay out of the line of fire, taking him from the heights of the Chrysler Building to the depths of New York’s underworld.

“Mayo spins several clever yarns off this premise as the quick-witted Jimmy hustles to keep one step ahead of the crowd.” —Publishers Weekly

“[Mayo] persuasively portrays such real-life mobsters as Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano in a tale sure to appeal to fans of Max Allan Collins’s gangster historicals.” —Publishers Weekly on Jimmy the Stick 

“Imagine an Agatha Christie country-house murder mystery soaked in booze and violence, with the detective played as a cold, pragmatic street fighter instead of some effete Belgian fop. The expected traditional shenanigans unfold (there’s even a hidden room!), albeit in a rather hardboiled and occasionally bloody fashion, but the solution is clever and fair. What really sticks, however, is the film critic and first-time novelist’s muscular way with character and plot, and particularly Jimmy’s way with words.” —Mystery Scene on Jimmy the Stick Michael Mayo (b. 1948) has written about film for the Washington Post and the Roanoke Times. He was the host of the nationally syndicated radio programs Movie Show on Radio and Max and Mike on the Movies. He is the author of American Murder: Criminals, Crime, and the Media. His first novel, Jimmy the Stick, was published in 2012. Mayo lives in North Carolina.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 17, 2014 – Set in 1932, Mayo's fast-paced sequel to 2012's Jimmy the Stick finds Jimmy Quinn, who runs a speakeasy in Manhattan, dealing with top criminals like Arnold Rothstein, crooked cops, and dames in particular, a dame from his past, Anna Gunderwald, who challenges him to a foot race. More seriously, a bomb explodes in the alley next to his speak, a mysterious package of four indecipherable ledgers arrives, and suddenly all kinds of people are interested in Jimmy. A crooked cop, Betcherman, wants his share of something, but Jimmy doesn't know what; a German, Johann Klapprott, wishes to purchase his place on behalf of a second party; and Mercer Weeks, enforcer for numbers boss Jacob Weiss, pays him a call. Basically, everyone is after the pile of money Jimmy is believed to possess. Mayo spins several clever yarns off this premise as the quick-witted Jimmy hustles to keep one step ahead of the crowd.
