Street Justice

A Smokey Dalton Novel

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

Description

In the first week of the new decade, an emergency phone call shatters Chicago Private Detective Smokey Dalton’s hopes for a good 1970. His adopted son Jimmy and Jimmy’s best friend and cousin Keith Grimshaw need help. 

Smokey arrives at a South Side hotel across from the boys’ school in time to clean up a horrible mess, one the boys mostly solve on their own. But the boys’ heroic actions echo across all of Chicago. Smokey finds himself standing alone against street gangs, the mob, and the Democratic Machine. 

If he fights this battle and fails, he stands to lose not only Jimmy and their future together, but also his life. 

“Easy comparisons can be made to Dave Robicheaux, Spenser, and Easy Rawlins, but Smokey is his own man. Women want to be near him and cook his dinner as he settles his nerves with three fingers of Scotch. A great read for fans of detectives guarding an inner city’s grimy streets.”
—Library Journal

“... a gripping read that drags us deeper into [Smokey] Dalton’s uneasy world.”
—Entertainment Weekly on War at Home

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 13, 2014 – The Chicago Seven Conspiracy trial and the murder of Black Panthers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark provide the backdrop for Nelscott's gritty seventh Smokey Dalton novel (after 2006's Days of Rage). In early 1970, Dalton struggles to make a living as an unlicensed Chicago PI and to parent his (unofficially) adopted 11-year-old son, Jimmy. A frantic phone call from his son's friend, Keith Grimshaw, brings Dalton to the Starlite Hotel, where Keith's 13-year-old sister, Lacey, has been lured and attacked. When Dalton tracks the assailant, he discovers that Lacey is far from the only victim of the Outfit, a mob-based group that preys on girls from a nearby school while police and politicians turn a blind eye. Dalton seeks help from a variety of sources who try to warn him off, but when things look hopeless, he finds unlikely allies. Dalton's hard won small victory vividly illustrates a turbulent period of our recent cultural history.
