Description

A gunman comes out of retirement to guard his former partner’s family
Jimmy Quinn was a gunman, bootlegger, and bagman, running with mobsters the likes of Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, and Vincent “Mad Dog” Coll, until a bullet in the leg and the murder of Arnold Rothstein ended his career. Quinn bought a speakeasy in downtown Manhattan and settled into a quiet retirement—until the day he learns that famous aviator Charles Lindbergh’s baby has been kidnapped, and his old friend and partner Walter Spencer wants a word. Spence has left his criminal past behind, marrying into the Pennyweight family—of Pennyweight Petroleum—and settling into a legitimate lifestyle in rural New Jersey. Now Spence has business out of state, and with the Lindbergh kidnapping weighing on his mind, he wants Quinn to stay in his home and protect his family. A few days guarding Spence’s beautiful wife should be easy work, but Quinn’s old business is about to catch up with him, and he quickly finds that the Garden State can be even more dangerous than the streets of New York City.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 13, 2012 – The 1932 Lindbergh baby kidnapping provides the backdrop for film expert Mayo s gritty first novel. Jimmy Quinn, who has a long record on the wrong side of the law, admits, I ve been a thief, a bootlegger, a bagman.... I was in on the fix of a World Series. After the abduction of the aviator s son, an old friend of Quinn s, Walter Spencer who s gone straight summons Quinn to his New Jersey home. Spencer s wife is frantic that their little Ethan will be the next child snatched. Since Spencer has some imminent out-of-state business travel, Quinn agrees to keep Ethan safe and secure. Another attempt to kidnap a child and the nailing of a man to a tree raise the ante. Mayo (American Murder: Criminals, Crime, and the Media) 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.
