Jimmy and Fay

Book 3, The Jimmy Quinn Mysteries - A Suspense Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In the midst of Prohibition, Jimmy Quinn joins forces with screen siren Fay Wray to take on a King Kong–size case of extortion.

It’s March 2, 1933. King Kong is premiering at Radio City Music Hall, and Fay Wray is about to become the most famous actress on earth. So what's she doing hanging around a rundown Manhattan speakeasy? This Hollywood scream queen has come to see Jimmy Quinn, a limping tough guy who knows every gangster in New York—and does his best to steer clear of them all.
 
A blackmailer has pictures of a Fay Wray lookalike engaged in conduct that would make King Kong blush, and Fay's movie studio—with the cooperation of a slightly corrupt NYPD detective—wants the threat eliminated. Jimmy tries to settle the matter quietly, but stopping the extortion will cut just as deeply as Fay's famous scream, ringing from Broadway all the way to Chinatown.
 
Jimmy and Fay is the 3rd book in the Jimmy Quinn Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 22, 2016 – In Mayo's uneven third Prohibition-era suspense novel featuring Manhattan speakeasy owner Jimmy Quinn (after 2015's Everybody Goes to Jimmy's), movie star Fay Wray hires Jimmy to act as a go-between and deliver $6,000 in extortion money to suppress the publication of some dirty pictures that feature a Fay Wray lookalike in an ersatz King Kong production. Jimmy's search for the lookalike involves visiting Polly Adler, who runs an upscale prostitution ring; holding off Gotham Comet columnist Saxon Dunbar, who's hot for a juicy story; and confronting pornographer Oscar Apollinaire, who has a link to the naughty photos that Wray wants destroyed. Mayo does a good job evoking the 1930s, and he has a great ear for hard-boiled dialogue. He generates some intrigue as Quinn tries to figure out why his girlfriend isn't speaking to him and why some heavies sacrificed a goat in the offices of a foundation for wayward girls. But, alas, the answers to both of these questions are, like the main story line, less interesting than they ought to be.
